Fix Windows Script Host If you are experiencing script host issues, you might notice error messages such as "Library not registered." Script host issues occur when scripting components do not exist in the Windows registry, according to Microsoft. Your version of Windows determines how the missing scripting components affect your system. You can repair script host problems by using your PC's native features.
Press the "Windows" key. Type "cmd" in the dialog box and press "Enter." This will open the Command Prompt. Type the following commands at the prompt one at a time and press "Enter:" regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\vbscript.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\jscript.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\dispex.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrobj.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\scrrun.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshext.dll regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\wshom.ocx Exit the Command Prompt. b> Register Components on 64-bit Systems b> Press the "Windows" key.

How to jump to a registry key directly ?


When you start Regedit, it automatically opens the last key that was viewed. (Registry Editor in Windows XP saves the last viewed registry key in a separate location). If you wish to jump to a particular registry key directly without navigating the paths manually, you may use any of these methods / tools.

Option 1 Using a VBScript: Copy these lines to a Notepad document as save as registry.vbs
'Launches Registry Editor with the chosen branch open automatically
'Author : Ramesh Srinivasan
'Website: http://windowsxp.mvps.org

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim MyKey
MyKey = Inputbox("Type the Registry path")
MyKey = "My Computer\" & MyKey
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit\Lastkey",MyKey,"REG_SZ"
WshShell.Run "regedit", 1,True
Set WshShell = Nothing

Double-click Registry.vbs and then type the full registry path which you want to open. [ Example: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.MP3 ]

Limitation: The above method does not help if Regedit is already open.

When advised [repeatedly] by Incredimail to update my version Of Incredimail 2, I finaly get a error 2738 could not access VBScript runtime for custom action. Any one help?


Microsoft has created a Fix-It for this!
What this Fix it does is to remove incorrect or corrupt registry entries that interfere with VB support in windows and then re-registers the DLL ensuring that the correct registry setting are there. After running the Fix it solution you may be able to immediately try the operation that previously gave you the error, but to be sure, a reboot is suggested. This will address similar issues with other programs as well and not just the applications that are specifically mentioned in this thread.

The link to the Fix it is: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9804433

Starting yesterday when i restarted my computer after editing my group police i find my computer is no longer displaying a task bar so i restart explorer and it seems as if it is running in classic shell...


What OS are you running?

Have you tried system restore? or....

Do you have access to the registry editor? (type "REGEDIT" into the run box)

if so then go to this key :
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies]

there you should see settings for windows explorer and the taskbar.. (a number "0" = setting disabled and a number "1" = setting enabled) just look for the settings related to the taskbar
the settings you are looking for are probably these:

"NoSetTaskbar=1," REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1) "
"NoTrayContextMenu REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1)."

Just right click the setting and chose "modify" and change the "1" to a "0" or "delete" the key all together

(I am running windows 7 and all three subkeys under "policies" : EXPLORER , MOBILITY CENTER AND SYSTEM are all empty with no policies set)
better no policy then the wrong policy...lol


if you do not have access to registry then "system restore" option is best .. (if you have somehow edited the group policy preventing you from running system restore then try booting into safe mode and going to the Hidden Administrator account.. and running "system restore" from there... hopefully since that account is usually not used it will hopefully have all of the group policy settings still at their defaults and allow you to restore the system

NOTE: System restore is best option because it replaces the entire registry with a back up copy and all group policy settings are contained within the registry and will be fully restored back the way they were.

if system restore is unavailable then a manual restore operation can be done as a last resort as long as the system restore points have not been deleted... but that is a complicated process that requires putting your hard drive into another computer and manually moving the right files to the correct locations (definitely an expert task...lol).

Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

To remove do this:
1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
%Temp%\gphone.exe
%System%\gphone.exe
%DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
%DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
[ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

%DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
%Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
[ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
C:\disk.txt
%System%\autorun.ini
%System%\setting.ini
%Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WorkgroupCrawler\Shares\”shared” = “[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Yahoo Messengger” = “%System%\gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\”Shell” = “Explorer.exe gphone.exe”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”AtTaskMaxHours” = “0′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”NextAtJobId” = “2′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableTaskMgr” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableRegistryTools” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\”NofolderOptions” = “1′
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Page_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Search_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Search Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′ Note: In any Gphone.exe files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. If you’re using Windows NT/2000/XP, by default this is “C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT USER]” (e.g., “C:\Documents and Settings\JoeSmith”). If you have any questions about manual Gphone.exe removal, go ahead and leave a comment.

How to remove Gphone.exe registry keys:
Because your registry is such a key piece of your Windows system, you should always backup your registry before you edit it.

Make sure your backup your registry before editing it.

2.To change your current directory, type “cd” in the command box, press your “Space” key, and enter the full directory where the Gphone.exe DLL file is located.

Gphone.exe Removal Tip
Is your computer acting funny after deleting any Gphone.exe files? I recommend using a program like File Recover from PC Tools. File Recover saves deleted files that otherwise can’t be recovered by Windows operating sytem.
