    Registry Mechanic runs every day and comes up with the same problem HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gabest\DVobSub\DefTextPathes

    and lists it as High Priority: Highlighted value is missing or invalid

    It does repair it ...but why every time it runs does the same problem occur

    Try putting the XP disk back in and just installing . It will leave everything like it is and install. Of course you may of already did this. Did you use update instead of new install?

Maybe, you have registry problem. 

  • Just restart the system 
  • Press F8 while starting the windows
  • Select "Safe Mode" options 
  • After restarting, a window will come up on screen
  • select No
  • Just select the past date from the date calender. You must select a past date from which you were not facing problem.
  • A restore process will start automatically.
  • press okey and finish
  • restart the computer.

Display resolution on my pc is not good

Check the model of your motherboard with the tool CPU-Z from here. search for the drivers on the internet. From Device Manager (open with the run command: devmgmt.msc), see whether the driver is installed properly or not. The Windows XP and Windows 7 drivers are different. so you have to install updated drivers means for Windows 7 operating system only. Check the motherboard manufactures web site to download the drivers and to get more information.
