Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

1 Answer

I have a PC that won't load IE8 for one of my users, but a different user on the same PC has no problem. I assume there's a registry entry somewhere that's having issues, but I'm not sure what to look for. Is there a way to fix this without taking a whole afternoon?

How to Remove Startup Programs Using the Registry Editor?


Edit the Registry. It is always wisest to start the registry editing process by making a backup of the registry files. You can do this within the Registry Editor. Simply click Start > Search> regedit to launch this editing tool
  • Within the Registry Editor, all of the entries that have been recorded in the system are displayed. It is important to exercise extreme caution when editing the registry, as failure to do so properly could result in a host of different challenges for the computer user. In order to avoid this from occurring, computer users should carefully read up on how the registry works and be certain to modify only files they recognize and identify when performing these activities.
26319214-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-0.jpg Modify Entries. When an entry that needs to be modified has been found, simply right-click on the entry to see a list of properties. Here, the user can delete or modify any entry that he wishes to have permanently removed. For those applications that have created startup demands within the registry, the simple removal of the relevant piece of information should serve to prevent the computer system from running the application in question without the user's explicit instruction to do so again.

Understand BSOD and Troubleshoot



1. What is Blue Screen Of Death ?

There are major reasons too for the blue screen of death as we find BSOD in Windows Vista for a different reason. Windows Vista runs on Longhorn technology while Windows XP runs on NT technology.

We have different Booting structures for both and also the Kernal and Micro Kernal Management of both systems vary.

The WDDM (Windows Device Driver Management Principles which applies on both Os are at different levels of rigidness.

Firstly, we need to understand why this happens.
When you install Software and new programs in your computer, new entries and other changes will be made on your Registry. As more and more entries pile up, some of them may become infected with spyware, or go missing because the System does not always restore them. As a result, when the programs that use the entries need to run, your computer may suddenly process very slowly, or worse, the blue screen of death happens. All these problems can be cured with a Registry Cleanup.
The amount of changes to your registry is dependent on the user's amount of usage of the computer. A newly purchased computer will usually run very quickly, but after a few months, users find that their Computers Processing Speed may start to slow down. This is the effect of a poorly maintained registry.

2. How To Trouble shoot and prevent of Blue Screen of Death?

So, how do we get rid of blue screen death? Simply put, run a registry cleaner. The registry cleaner will find all of the problems associated with the registry and will fix them or remove the errors. Don’t be surprised at the amount of errors you find the first time to scan the registry. But, within 5 minutes, you can have all of them fixed. Then for maintenance and to ensure your computer is running without any errors, run this software weekly. This will ensure you have the blue screen of death fixed.

Good Luck.

How can you backup and restore the Registry?


Maintaining the Registry

Windows 95
Microsoft included a utility on the Windows 95 CD-ROM that lets you create backups of the Registry on your computer. The Microsoft Configuration Backup program, CFGBACK.EXE, can be found in the \Other\Misc\Cfgback directory on the Windows 95 CD-ROM. This utility lets you create up to nine different backup copies of the Registry, which it stores, with the extension RBK, in your \Windows directory. If your system is set up for multiple users, CFGBACK.EXE won't back up the USER.DAT file.

After you have backed up your Registry, you can copy the RBK file onto a floppy disk for safekeeping. However, to restore from a backup, the RBK file must reside in the \Windows directory. Windows 95 stores the backups in compressed form, which you can then restore only by using the CFGBACK.EXE utility.

Windows 98
Microsoft Windows 98 automatically creates a backup copy of the registry every time Windows starts, in addition to this you can manually create a backup using the Registry Checker utility by running SCANREGW.EXE from Start | Run menu.

What to do if you get a Corrupted Registry
Windows 95, 98 and NT all have a simple registry backup mechanism that is quite reliable, although you should never simply rely on it, remember to always make a backup first!

Windows 95
In the Windows directory there are several hidden files, four of these will be SYSTEM.DAT & USER.DAT, your current registry, and SYSTEM.DA0 & USER.DA0, a backup of your registry. Windows 9x has a nice reature in that every time it appears to start successfully it will copy the registry over these backup files, so just in case something goes wrong can can restore it to a known good state. To restore the registry follow these instruction:
[list=1]
* Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.

* Click Restart The Computer In MS-DOS Mode, then click Yes.

* Change to your Windows directory. For example, if your Windows directory is c:\windows, you would type the following:

cd c:\windows

* Type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each one. (Note that SYSTEM.DA0 and USER.DA0 contain the number zero.)

attrib -h -r -s system.dat
attrib -h -r -s system.da0
copy system.da0 system.dat
attrib -h -r -s user.dat
attrib -h -r -s user.da0
copy user.da0 user.dat

* Restart your computer.

Following this procedure will restore your registry to its state when you last successfully started your computer.

If all else fails, there is a file on your hard disk named SYSTEM.1ST that was created when Windows 95 was first successfully installed. If necessary you could also change the file attributes of this file from read-only and hidden to archive to copy the file to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DAT.

Windows NT
On Windows NT you can use either the "Last Known Good" option or RDISK to restore to registry to a stable working configuration.

How can I clean out old data from the Registry?
Although it's possible to manually go through the Registry and delete unwanted entries, Microsoft provides a tool to automate the process, the program is called RegClean. RegClean analyzes Windows Registry keys stored in a common location in the Windows Registry. It finds keys that contain erroneous values, it removes them from the Windows Registry after having recording those entries in the Undo.Reg file.

I m trying to install internet explorer 8 but .it show no entry found.how can i solve the problem


You've tried to install IE version 8 on a windows system (would like to know WinXP/Vista/Win7 ?) that has one or more registry problems. FIX: run a registry sanity checker/fixer appropriate for your version of Windows and retry the IE8 install - the install will
remove (clean out) any invalid/useless IE8 junk already on the system - such as your invalid IE8 registry entries.

www.pctools.com offers a Windows registry checker, but Microsoft offers SCANREG.EXE free - see:

for appropriate command-line switches.

Windows 7 black screen after startup


The black screen error is caused due to faulty registry settings and improper registry keys. It is recommended to use the registry cleaner software in the system that will help in deleting the faulty entries from the registry. The registry entries might have been created because of malware infection when connected with Internet. The user should download the registry cleaner software only from the genuine website and it must be of the latest version.
