Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
to start off this is a problem with windows registry, i just need someone who can guide me to the right spot instead of me trying to search the entire windows registry.
I want windows to reboot when I ask it to do in the start/ shutdown menu.
I also had the problem with the power off, but someone already guided me to the registry key of that.
it shows windows is shutting down " (or something like that, my xp is dutch) and after a few seconds it should reboot, but it doesn't.
can someone tell me where to look.
You can start by downloading GUIDED HELP .
This application is provided for free in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
The registry is a volatile environment to enter without prior experience
or the presence of a full backup.
Startup and shutdown issues are addressed by a variety of registry keys
and you can destroy your system with good intentions. This is an area
best addressed by Microsoft as I have seen mixed results with so-called
registry cleaners. Also get a full understanding of how to use ASR
in Windows XP.
Hope this gets you started.....................Nate P.
