HI,
this is a system registry fault, usually occurs if the program has corrupt data, or trial version expired et,c.
If this is a full Nero Version, uninstall/remove and re-install.
Check the Time And Date On Your Computer.
Also possible solution, check for viruses, locking off the drive.
Or that there are no pending applications attempting to write to the Drive.
Finally Try Another DVD, Could Be A Faulty or part written disk.
** Please do Not Rate This Until your problem Has been resolved** thankyou.

You may not be an administrator on that machine. Right click on My Computer and go to Manage then to System Tools and then to Local Users and Groups then to Groups and see if your account is there. If not login as an administrator and do the installation.

What is the Registry?


The Registry is a database used to store settings and options for the 32 bit versions of Microsoft Windows including Windows 95, 98, ME and NT/2000. It contains information and settings for all the hardware, software, users, and preferences of the PC. Whenever a user makes changes to a Control Panel settings, or File Associations, System Policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in the Registry.

The physical files that make up the registry are stored differently depending on your version of Windows; under Windows 95 & 98 it is contained in two hidden files in your Windows directory, called USER.DAT and SYSTEM.DAT, for Windows Me there is an additional CLASSES.DAT file, while under Windows NT/2000 the files are contained seperately in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config directory. You can not edit these files directly, you must use a tool commonly known as a "Registry Editor" to make any changes (using registry editors will be discussed later in the article).

The Structure of The Registry
The Registry has a hierarchal structure, although it looks complicated the structure is similar to the directory structure on your hard disk, with Regedit being similar to Windows Explorer.

Each main branch (denoted by a folder icon in the Registry Editor, see left) is called a Hive, and Hives contains Keys. Each key can contain other keys (sometimes referred to as sub-keys), as well as Values. The values contain the actual information stored in the Registry. There are three types of values; String, Binary, and DWORD - the use of these depends upon the context.

There are six main branches, each containing a specific portion of the information stored in the Registry. They are as follows:


* HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT - This branch contains all of your file association mappings to support the drag-and-drop feature, OLE information, Windows shortcuts, and core aspects of the Windows user interface.
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER - This branch links to the section of HKEY_USERS appropriate for the user currently logged onto the PC and contains information such as logon names, desktop settings, and Start menu settings.
* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - This branch contains computer specific information about the type of hardware, software, and other preferences on a given PC, this information is used for all users who log onto this computer.
* HKEY_USERS - This branch contains individual preferences for each user of the computer, each user is represented by a SID sub-key located under the main branch.
* HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG - This branch links to the section of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE appropriate for the current hardware configuration.
* HKEY_DYN_DATA - This branch points to the part of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, for use with the Plug-&-Play features of Windows, this section is dymanic and will change as devices are added and removed from the system.



Each registry value is stored as one of five main data types:


* REG_BINARY - This type stores the value as raw binary data. Most hardware component information is stored as binary data, and can be displayed in an editor in hexadecimal format.
* REG_DWORD - This type represents the data by a four byte number and is commonly used for boolean values, such as "0" is disabled and "1" is enabled. Additionally many parameters for device driver and services are this type, and can be displayed in REGEDT32 in binary, hexadecimal and decimal format, or in REGEDIT in hexadecimal and decimal format.
* REG_EXPAND_SZ - This type is an expandable data string that is string containing a variable to be replaced when called by an application. For example, for the following value, the string "%SystemRoot%" will replaced by the actual location of the directory containing the Windows NT system files. (This type is only available using an advanced registry editor such as REGEDT32)
* REG_MULTI_SZ - This type is a multiple string used to represent values that contain lists or multiple values, each entry is separated by a NULL character. (This type is only available using an advanced registry editor such as REGEDT32)
* REG_SZ - This type is a standard string, used to represent human readable text values.



Other data types not available through the standard registry editors include:


* REG_DWORD_LITTLE_ENDIAN - A 32-bit number in little-endian format.
* REG_DWORD_BIG_ENDIAN - A 32-bit number in big-endian format.
* REG_LINK - A Unicode symbolic link. Used internally; applications should not use this type.
* REG_NONE - No defined value type.
* REG_QWORD - A 64-bit number.
* REG_QWORD_LITTLE_ENDIAN - A 64-bit number in little-endian format.
* REG_RESOURCE_LIST - A device-driver resource list.

Hauppauge ImpactVCB 166 make setting default to S-Video


it should just be a setting under options in the driver controll panle for the video card
the next way is probly above your technical abilities

if you care to try here is how
find the folder in programs files if not there check in the main c drive
once you find the driver folder for the video card you have to find the file that controls the settings
mostlikely ending in .ini
if your lucky it will be a simple text file that you can open with notepad
your going to have to do some research on what the proper wording is to make the setting defult to s-video
who know it might be just that simple

you could also try the registy approach and change the setting in the registry that says what the defualt is saposed to be this method is the fastest and esayest way it is also the proper way if the setting is unavalible from the video cards controll panle.

the hard part is finding the corect registry entry to edit or modify
to get into the registry
start/run/enter in the field "regedit" then click ok
the registry editor should now be open

be highly advised making mistakes in here can and will corupt your system to the point of not working at all
if you dont know what the hkey is for dont tinker with it you will be sorry if you do
export any key you plan on changing befor you change it thus if you do make a mistake you can simply double click the exported hkey to restore it back to its original state
note for some Hkeys this wont be a fix it because your system wont even boot after you corupt the Hkey
good lucky making the change you need to make and check the setting of the card driver first look for tabs and sub menues boxes that say advanced on them check thru those first

I picked up this program called personal antivirus and I can't get rid of it.i looked in my programs and it's not even there.Any ideas?


go to start menu, then go to "run", then type regedit and hit enter.
Now you are in registry.
Find the HKEY LOCAL MACHINE and expand it, then find Software, and expand it. You should see your program here, right click and delete file.

Do the same with HKEY LOCAL USER

Also go to start menu, search , type program name. When found, right click and delete all files.

I'm am trying to play age of mythology and after the movie ends, error appears and states "initialization failed".


Initialization failed

This means that the game is attempting to initialize hardware such as the video card but has failed

This can be caused by a number of factors.

1. Your hardware does not meet the games hardware requirements
2. Your hardware requires farther configuration to run the game properly



if you are certan that the game supports your hardware you may need to perform
some extra steps to get your game working

"Failed to initialize" is an incomplete error message because it does not tell you what exactly failed
a more complete error message would read "Failed to initialize the video subsystem" and then it would give an error code such as Error Code xxx telling you exactly what error code to look up
to determine what exactly failed.

Most of the time when a game says ( failed to initialize ) that means a video issue
this may mean missing files or wrong versions of files or incompatable hardware.

I can't defrag and DLL initialization failed message.


Run a free Registry scan will fixed DLL problem.
So, download a free registry cleaner and install the software. The free registry cleaner software automatically scans the registry, cleans it up, backs up the data for you to restore if you encounter any problem after you have cleaned the registry. The registry cleaner can also configure a startup organizer and remove embedded keys that are used by malware like Trojan, virus, dialers and so on. Registry cleaner software also eliminates the free spaces within the registry and traces of programs that are never completely uninstalled. In short registry cleaners are truly effective tool for safe and faster computing. So get it now!
