Admin734's Solution would work but mine may be quicker.

Put your windows cd in the drive and search it for regedit.exe, it should be in the d:\I386 folder. Once found copy and paste it to your C:\windows\system32 folder.

problem should be solved.

I am logged-on as a user that belongs to Administrator group on my laptop. Start, Run, regedit comes up with message "registry editing has been disabled by your administrator". same happens with regedit32.

Sounds like you may have a virus , that is usually the reason your regedit would go missing.

Here is your fix:

  1. Get your Windows XP CD (Should have came with the PC)
  2. Goto "Start"
  3. Goto "Run"
  4. Type in "CMD" and hit enter
  5. A black DOS screen will come up , type the command "SFC /SCANNOW" and hit enter
What This Will Do -
This command checks all of the Windows system files on your computer against the CD to make sure that you have them all and that none of them are corrupt. If you are missing any files it will pull it off of the CD automaticlly......after the scan is done try accessing regedit again....

Also this is usually signs of a virus , so after you get that fixed I highly recommend that you do a virus scan along with a spyware scan.

I cant change the wallpaper of my acer D260 how should i remedy this one?


You might have Windows 7 Starter, please be advised that Windows 7 Starter does not include Personalization feature for changing desktop background, window colors, or sound schemes.



However, there is a solution for the desktop wall paper for Windows 7 Starter. You have to deal with the Registry. Please read my notes below.

  • · Click start
  • · In the search box or run, type regedit, allow execution
  • · (Important, export the current registry setting) Right click on Computer and export the registry setting.
  • · Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\"
  • · On the right hand side pane, doubleclick on key named "Wallpaper"
  • · Change the path of the picture you want to use as your wallpaper (example path is "C:\temp\mywallpaper.jpg")
  • · Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions. Click "Advanced"
  • · Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
  • · Click on "Advanced" again then Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
  • · Click "Add". Type "Everyone" and click "OK". Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK". Click "OK" again
  • · Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
  • · Restart Computer

I m unable 2 change my theme and wallpaper


If your operating system is Windows 7 Starter edition, the customization is disabled. Consider upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium or other edition for these features.
BTW . I found a hack for the wallpaper change in Windows 7 starter edition. if you want to try,
1. Click start and type regedit in the search box or run
2. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\" folder and click on it
3. On the right hand side you will find a bunch of entries. Find the key named "Wallpaper" and double click on it and put the path of the picture you want as your new wallpaper (example path is "C:\Users\Big Dan\Pictures\new wallpaper.jpg")
4. Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions.
5. Click "Advanced"
6. Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
7. Click on "Advanced" again
8. Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
9. Click "Add"
10. Type "Everyone" and click "OK"
11. Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK"
12. Click "OK" again
13. Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
14. Restart Computer

About folder option


Click on Start - Run and then type:
Regedit
then go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\NOHIDDE N.
There should be two registry entries there:

- CheckedValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2
- DefaultValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2

(Correct them if necessary.)

Now open the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL .

- CheckedValue : Type: DWORD Value: 1
- DefaultValue : Type: DWORD Value: 2

(Correct them if necessary.)

If the problem persists, open Start, Run, type "regsvr32 /i shell32.dll" and
click OK.
reboot the computer.
thats it, have fun :)
