Keep Pressing F8 as you turn on the computer and it should bring you to a menu. Choose the option that says "safe mode" and it will bring into windows in safe mode. From there try to do the system restore and see if it takes from that point.

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key till you see the advance boot options, You should be tapping the key as soon as you see the manufactures screen. Once you get the advance boot options -> Select the option which says Repair your Computer once its Selected click next on the Keyboard Layout Option, Now it would ask you for a User name and Password, Click on the User name Tab and select User/Owner extra and Type in your password if the computer has one if not you can leave that field blank, then click on next, Now on the recovery options screen you would be able to choose System Restore, Command Prompt extra. I think with the issue your facing System Restore would be the best Option to do. Once its selected click Next and choose a Restore Point with the Date when the Updates Happened and initiate it. Once done you should be able to install the game without any issues.

Good Luck!!!!!

When trying to use system disk unable to choose a restoration option


If you are doing a system recovery from disks you created or purchased most times they don't work. You might as well reinstall the operating system.

Have you tried doing a System Restore? System Restore will allow you to select a Restore Point (date and time) when your system was working ok. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected.

System Recovery or Factory Restore deletes everything.

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

My computer is very slow and there is virus what l have to do?


Go to this site

http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

and run a full scan - this will remove most of the viruses on your computer. Should help speed it up as well.

Once thats done, install AVG Free and run a full scan

Install for AVG ->http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html

Once AVG is done scanning, i'd also install and run SpyBot S&D to remove any other infections that AVG/HouseCall may have missed.

Install for SpyBot S&D -> http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-amp-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html

After HouseCall, AVG and SpyBot have ran, you should be all set! If you can't get to any IE pages, and are posting this from a different computer, see below on how to restore your IE settings...

Being that you were able to get to this site to post, i can assumeIf you can't seem to get to the site, which happens w/ some viruses, try restoring your internet back to its original state. There's steps on how to do that below as well.

  1. 1: Open up the internet window, by clicking on the "blue e" on your desktop, or by going to the Start Menu, All programs, internet Explorer
  2. Step 3 blue-e-2_thumb.jpg From the Start Menu If the "blue E" is not in fact on your desktop then refer to the picture in this step.
  3. Step 4 toolsmenu_thumb.jpg Menu Bar 2: Once the internet is open, you will then want to go to the "Tools" Menu, in the internet window. If you are using internet explorer 7 the tools menu is on what is called the Menu bar, and this menu bar generally is in the upper left hand corner.

    Picture is attached.
  4. Step 5 internetoptions_thumb.jpg Internet options selection 3: Once you click the Tools Menu, then select, internet options. Image below attached, then click on internet options to go into the internet options dialog box.
  5. Step 6 ioptionsdialogbox_thumb.jpg Advanced Tab 4: Once you have selected the internet options click on the advanced tab all the way to the right, picture attached. Once you have selected, advanced at the bottom right there is an option there to RESET, this will restore the default settings, of your internet explorer Browser.
  6. Step 7 5: Reboot machine.


Also, another thing to consider is a system restore, if your computer is so bad that the above isn't working. For XP, system restore works wonders. See below for instructions on how to complete a system restore.

1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.
sysrest2.jpg
Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.


...ok, im running out of breath here!! Hope all this helps - good luck!!

Initializing error :registry value is not of binary type


Sorry to here about your problems with AVG, generally Griftsoft (AVG) is a grate program, that is until recently.
I have run AVG for years, until they get bossy and BUSH you to Buy their Program. At which time, I decided to remove them and go elsewhere! But that's me, and others have their own opium.
1st. What operating system are you using.? XP or VISTA
2nd. Have you tried to un-install AVG ?
3rd. If the program is running, on the bottom right of screen, you should see the colored box (red. blue, green and yellow) Right click on it and delete.
4th. Next go to control panel and add or remove programs
5th. Find AVG anti-virus and remove.
6th. If you are running VISTA you may want to find your start-up folder and remove from that.
If all the above fails, drop me a email and I will explain removal using MSCONFIG.

4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5. Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6. The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
You may always undo the System Restore OR choose another restore point after checking your system. To do the same just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice, you'll have an additional task; Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page.
Caution: - Whenever you do a system restore remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point selected.

Kindly rate the solution.

3. Any file that belongs to antivirus are not able to load while installinfg like uninst.exe.
4.Windows installer 3.0 is not installed on ur system
(Check out all the above including reviewing ur antivirus directory for uninst.exe file)

To solve this error you must do the following:
1. Run AVG antivirus setup program to repair. some times it doesnot give you the option if half of installed program have been removed from system.
2. Go to run type "regedit" and press enter
3. go to hkey_local_machine ->SOFTWARE -> and select AVG
expand trees of AVG.
4. Check for data path and its contents in AVG directory of program files, and also For UninstPath to varify that the uninst.exe in avg directory of program files is not missplaced
5. After doing the specified solution 60% are the chances that ur program would be uninstalled. else if it doesnot uninstall the program and gives the same error then Choose system restore tool.

For restoring do the following:

and select System Restore
2. Go to next window, Choose the restore point that was before installing of ur AVG Antivirus.
3. Select that restore point by reading the description.

Most probably this tool will help you to remove this antivirus.

Remove it's entry from registry by Going to run type "regedit" and press enter

and select delete option to delete.

Gimme acknowledgement after removal
