Its actually one big conspiracy :) lol no, each operating system is based on another and sometimes within each other. or stand alone programs, im not sure what the question is here, but being an engineer you know that the base of all computers is the humble transistor/diode these are arranged in their millions in a 1cm by 1cm piece of mutilated silicon and programed with things like compiler and VHDL etc... this is the base of bios (basic in out) and complementary bios (cmos) etc............... all in all very complicated and as we humans still need to use these machines the complicated ness is crunched down by nice easy looking software! unless you want to program 4.7x10^52 MOSFETs using compiler or worse! software is just dandy!!!

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:
Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

Restart your computer.

Keep getting blue screen of death with error Bad_Pool_Header- Windows XP, SP3.

This error can occur when you connect USB devices. Remove all unecessay harware and reboot. While running Windows, Safely remove hardaware, and avoid switching around equipment. USB can be hot-plugged but you must give time to the OS to get its house in order.

Hope it helps

Cannot delete ESET folder from Program files. the program already uninstalled but left this folder in my Program files folder. error message: "You need permission to perform this action.'' OS - Vista...

Apparently MS in their infinite wisdom decided that in vista they would take the power away from the user and remove the administrator from the equation.
So no matter how many thing your try in the user accounts you will not get full admin rights.
but here is a reg hack that worked for me real well. I am running windows vista home basic

Click Start and Run type in regedit and enter
your now at the registry editor.
click and expand HKEYLOCALMACHINE
go down and click SOFTWARE
click SYSTEM
you will see the registry entries to the right
right click in the white area and select new DWORD
Name it "EnableLinkedConnections" and enter
Right Click on EnableLinkedConnections and choose MODIFY change the Data Value to "1"
Save and exit Registry Editor
Reboot your computer and try deleting the folder you wanted to again.

Using this reg edit you are changing your registry and could develop problems if you don't do it correctly. Be Warned and do some research prior if you need to understand registry editor.
