I need to restore the default settings in the registry editor

My friend has a "cracked" copy of windows xp and he looked online to find a way to make it "genuine". In the steps given for this process he was told to change some data in the registry editor. Needless to say the process DID NOT work, but was successful in causing MAJOR PROBLEMS in his computer. His graphics cards won't work and there are icons missing in his control panel to name a few of the problems. He tried to go to the system restore option, but the computer will not allow the previous restore date to be used. It doesn't even show up on the calendar. He is a HUGE gaming freak and is flipping out because he cannot use any of his games. Please help me to help him!

    do you have the registry change that he made???

    I need to see what he changed and how to change it back.

    if you or him don't have the exact registry change made. the other alternative is to reinstall WIndows XP. and leave it alone this time. The only problem is he can't get updates from Microsoft. other than that, there is other problem he will encounter.

    you can alway ge the Service Pack from a working PC and download the full set and install on the "non-genuine" XP.

There is no good way to make a cracked copy Genuine. Nowadays when you try to update the system through microsoft it must pass a genuine verification, if it fails, no updates. Best bet, spend the money buy the real deal. you will have to do a complete reformat. you will loose everything. I been there and learned the hard way. sorry

2. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore

In the right-pane:

In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.

3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured

Turn off System Restore corresponds to DisableSR registry value. With this Policy is turned ON, the System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator.

Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads disabled by Group Policy.

Or perhaps you can review this
Control of System Restore function has been disabled by "Group Policy".
How do regain control?Go to Start>Run, key in gpedit.msc and hit ENTER. Under Computer
Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, then click on
the System Restore folder. In the right-hand pane, double-click on Turn off
Configuration and, under the Setting tab, click in the radio button beside
Not Configured. Click on Apply then OK.

Please visit the following Microsoft Knowledge Base website
and review the topic titled: "Method 1: Use Group Policy".

http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp…

Note: You must be an administrator or owner, or have administrative
privileges to perform this task.

Undo the changes using Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc)

-or-

Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wind… NT\SystemRestore

In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".
Close Registry Editor
Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.


Note: Group Policy Editor is only Available in XP Professional (according to http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-…

    My pc is slow work


    it it is xp the follow the following steps
    When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill," any live
    applications or processes that are currently running. So close all applications first.
    However, some applications and processes are always running in the background.
    You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP waits for those applications and
    processes to close before Windows XP kills them.
    1. Open registry editor
    2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Set the
    WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select the HungAppTimeout
    \newline value and set it to 1000 as well.
    3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control.
    Select the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 10000.
    4. Close the Registry Editor.


    Memory Tweak
    1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and locate the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\
    MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters
    2.On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).
    3. Close the registry editor and restart your computer
