Missing Control Panel+Run Command+Active Desktop

Problems occurred after replacing a dead HP monitor with Compaq. Restoring registry helped reinstate items, but were deleted again after ad/spyware removal program. Registry restoring attempts were tried again but failed. Now, I'm unable to locate previous dated registry cab to restore to previous operable level.

Please help. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Does your computer have a systems restore option . If so try to set it to a date before these problems occured and it should fix itself....Click on start, then accessories, then system tools, then system restore. Pick a date before the problems started an restore to that point. Should do the trick.....

HI! QUESTION. HAVE YOU, OR CAN YOU RE-INSTALL WIN98 FROM CD? IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEST SOLUTION MIGHT BE TO DO A RE-INSTALL OF THE ENTIRE WIN98 FROM THE CD. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE FILES MISSING MIGHT HAVE BEEN PERMANENTLY DELETED AND IF YOU CAN LOCATE THEM ON YOUR COMPUTER, YOU MAY HAVE TO RE-INSTALL THE 98 OS TO GET BACK RUNNING. ONE THOUGHT, THIS MIGHT BE AN EXCELLENT TIME TO UPGRADE TO WIN XP,SP2 WHICH IS AN EXCELLENT PROGRAM AND HAS BETTER RESTORE FEATURES. I PERSONALLY USE XP,SP2 ON MY ONE DESKTOP MACHINE AND IT RUNS MY WIRELESS NETWORK AND HAS BEEN VERY STABLE. I REALLY HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. IF YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, PLEASE REPLY. I'LL HELP.

Why cd rom is not showing


Where is it not showing? Under 'Computer' where you see your hard drive and other partitions? Or have you checked the device manager, and it's not showing there?

This looks like an issue that's being caused due to a modification or corruption of a few registry keys.

You can try the following to see if it works:
Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
    1.Press 'Windows key + R', type in 'regedit' (without quotes) in the run box and hit enter.
    2.Locate and click the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3.If you see UpperFilters in the pane on the right side, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
    4.Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
    5.If you see LowerFilters in the pane on the right side, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
    6.Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
    7.Exit Registry editor and restart your system.

The problem with sound (cod 10 error). compaq nx7010


A Code 10 error usually occurs due to:
  • Missing device driver
  • Malfunctioning device driver
  • Incomplete device driver files
If the device due to which the error has occurred contains the value FailReasonString in its hardware key, then this string is displayed as an error message. Otherwise, the device displays the following error message:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)
Most of the time, you can resolve this error by updating the device driver for the faulty device. To update the driver, select the System option from the Control Panel. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Hardware tab, and then select the Device Manager button. Scroll through the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware device. Right-click on this device and then select the Update Driver command. Next, follow the screen instructions to update the driver of the selected device.
Causes of System Errors
System Errors Usually Occur due to:
  • Device driver conflicts
  • Corrupt or damaged software files
  • Malfunctioning hardware
  • Corrupt or damaged system registry
  • Virus or spyware infection
Steps to Prevent System Errors
With a little vigilance and extra precaution you can easily prevent most system errors. Some of the tasks that you can perform to prevent system errors are listed below:
  • Keep your operating system, device drivers, and software applications updated with the latest hot fixes, security releases, and updates.
  • Run regular antivirus and anti spyware scans to keep your PC free from harmful and disastrous malware. Always keep these software updated with the latest security releases so that your system is always protected against malware infections.
  • Avoid opening attachments of unsolicited emails and visiting dubious websites.
  • Do not download freeware and shareware from websites whose authenticity you aren't sure of.
  • Be very careful while downloading ActiveX controls from various websites. ActiveX controls provide their master with complete control over your system and therefore, a malicious ActiveX control can cause severe damage to your system and may also enable a hacker to steal your personal information.
  • Last but not least, perform regular registry maintenance to ensure that your registry is free from errors. 90% of all system errors are connected to the system registry in one way or another. You can easily perform registry maintenance with the help of a registry cleaner such as RegGenie. This software will provide you with a simple-to-use graphical interface and enable you to scan and clean registry errors in just a few mouse clicks.
System errors are common on Windows systems and can occur due to a number of reasons, including problems with device drivers, hardware, software applications, and the system registry. Code 10 is one such system error that occurs due to problems with a device driver. You can fix this error by updating the faulty device driver. Preventive maintenance with the help of antivirus software, registry cleaners, and a certain amount of vigilance while working on the Internet can help you keep your PC free from system errors.
Additional Recommendations...
Driver Update: Many errors are related to driver problems such as obsolete, outdated or incompatible drivers. A driver update tool is recommended to scan your system for corrupted and outdated drivers and to ensure that all your drivers stay up-to-date.

4. Click "Export" from the drop-down menu.

6. Type Backup.reg in the File Name field.

3. Click the plus (+) sign beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
4. Click the plus (+) sign beside System.
