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!!!

No burning rights

windows vista has a thing about admin rights and you can check every box and it says you have rights but you really don;t.
and there is now significant admin user in vista anymore.
here is what i had to do to get the rights to do anything.
Please understand that editing the registry is not for the weak computer person and you must be able to reverse any changes made that cause an issue. I used this on mine and it helped me gain some control.

click start and run,
type in regedit
when Registry editor opens
click on HKEY Local Machine
click SYSTEM
in the area where there are values right click and select new/ DWORD
enter "EnableLinkedConnections"
press enter
right click EnableLinkedConnections and chose MODIFY and change the value to 1
Save and exit Registry Editor.
Reboot your computer and try Burning again.

It sounds scarey but it's not and just remember or write down these instructions so you can refer to then easy during the process.
and also to reverse the entry if needed.
if you need any further help let me know.
Good Luck

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.

Re.Launching Registry editor,To Cure CD-DVD-writer not Responding

Are you the Administrator, and do you have the Administrator's password?

If so, then log in as Administrator and make the necesary changes.

However, if not, then you must reinstall the OS, to establish yourself as such.

Error 1311: source file not found:E\LENOVO3000 Y410 USER GUIDE\VISTA\6.LAN\ , Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

The cause of the error is a problem with the Microsoft® Windows® Installer program used by the software. It produces the error when the registry entry AllocateCDRoms at the following subkey is set to a value of 1.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft has provided a wealth of critical information you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at

Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined in ARTICLE-ID: Q132332 "How to Back Up the Registry" in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.

Start the Registry Editor and locate the following subkey:

goto start->run and type regedit to start registry editor

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Change the value for the AllocateCDRoms entry to 0.
Exit the Registry Editor.

Hi karthee,

Every version of Windows since Windows 95 has used a Registry, which is essentially a database containing the configuration information for the OS, its peripherals, and any installed software. The Registry is among the first things that Windows loads at startup, and it tells the OS everything from how menus and the Desktop should look and feel, to where all the vital files and programs reside, to which hardware is installed on the system.

The Registry actually includes a series of data files stored in different folders in your Windows subdirectory, all according to which OS version you’re using. For instance, in WinXP Home or Professional, the Registry has six files located in the Config folder at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG. Win98 SE and WinMe have different files in other locations, but in all cases, it’s easier to access the Registry via the Registry Editor.

The Registry Editor, the Regedit.exe program, resides in the Windows subdirectory. But the quickest way to open the Registry Editor is to click Run from the Start menu, type regedit in the field, and press ENTER.

Now that we told you how to open the Registry Editor, we should also warn you that it’s unlike other Windows programs because it saves any changes you make on the fly rather than waiting for you to decide to save your changes. Yes, the Registry Editor will save any changes you make as you make them and apply those changes to the respective files and settings on your system. You cannot negate your edits or deletes simply by bailing out of the program without officially saving anything. This means that any user venturing into the Registry Editor must take special care to track any changes made and protect him or herself by backing up the Registry before tinkering with it.

Hope it's help's you.


Hope to hear more from you soon
