OK, sounds like you need to restore or recover to an earlier state of the computer when it did work right.

Common Signs Of Windows Registry Errors

  • Slow start-up, shut-down:

    The first sign commonly observed in windows registry error is PC's slow start up and shot down. As the windows registry gets large and disorganised, the PC takes too much time to bootup and the same is the case with shut down procedure. The loading and unloading of the start up programs takes a long time.

  • Frequent Error Messages:

    A corrupt and disorganised windows registry gives rise to frequent error messages. When the windows search the registry for its related entries, you get error messages as they are not referenced properly.

  • Freezes and Crashes:

    If the windows operating system cannot find the corresponding registry entry, then the computer just freezes and crashes. This is a very important sign showing that the windows registry is corrupt and needs an urgent repair.

  • Blue Screen Of Death:

    Blue screen of message is a final warning message displayed with blue screen so as to prevent the damage to the PC. They are more commonly referred as stop errors. When the PC faces critical failure, then it leads to BSOD.

  • Sluggish Performance:

    Due to the corrupt and disorganised windows registry, the PC suffers from sluggish performance. Even a brand new PC when has cluttered windows registry experiences slow system performance.

  • Cannot Add/Remove a Program:

    If you want to add/remove a program, then you enter the control panel and make settings. But with corrupted registry entries, you can't even uninstall the programs normally.



Why Do You Get Windows Registry Errors?

After knowing about the windows registry and signs of the registry errors, you may be worrying about the actual causes for the windows registry errors. Though there are many reasons accounting for the registry errors, but the below highlighted ones are known to cause severe effect.

  • Multitude of Programs:

    Generally what we do is download all sorts of things even if it is not necessary. There are many programs on our hard disk which we do not even touch. This multitude of programs uses a lot of memory and processing capacity. It makes the registry to get overloaded.

  • Spyware, Adware, Viruses or Malware:

    As the windows registry is the core of the PC, many viruses and spyware attack it. They simply create registry and/or modify the keys and infect them. For a normal person, it is very dangerous to handle the registry keys. Only a technically competent person can edit them.

  • Tracking Programs:

    Some internet programs install themselves and have registry keys associated with them. They do have multiple keys within the registry. They get mixed up with the normal registry keys and are difficult to delete due to their multiple names and folders.

  • Incomplete Install & Un-installation of Programs:

    While installing and/or uninstalling the programs, you need to follow the official program but some just add/delete them manually. Even if you delete the program manually, the registry keys are not deleted. So you have to fully uninstall the program along with the associated registry keys. The same is the case with failed and incomplete installations. The registry key already stays there. If you make incomplete installation, the windows registry gets overloaded with corrupt entries and gives your error messages.

  • Continued Usage:

    The more the software and hardware you have on your PC, the more is windows registry. Over the prolonged usage, the registry becomes cluttered and disorganised. Whenever the data changes, the windows registry becomes overloaded and the corresponding registry keys are not updated. So this results in a corrupt windows registry and we do observe the registry errors.



hope this helps

Clicking outlook express hyperlinks gives not responding message


First download and reinstall Internet Explorer, that has Outlook Express built in. See Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If that does not work, do system restore to a date before you started having the problem. See System Restore on Windows XP.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.

Mouse freezes


I had the same problem. The following solution from 3M support fixed it. We Normally see this problem on laptop computers running Windows XP. There is a power management setting in the Device Manager, which controls the USB Root Hub. Often this setting is selected to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". When control of the mouse is needed again, the computer is unable to turn the device back on. To remove this power management feature follow the instructions below. 1. Right click on the "My Computer" Icon on your Windows Desktop 2. Select "Properties" from the Menu 3. Click on the "Hardware" tab in the system properties window 4. Click on the "Device Manager" button 5. Click on the (+) plus sign next to "Universal Serial Bus Controller" in the Device Manager 6. Locate the "USB Root Hub" (Note: there may be more than one, and you will need to change all of them), double-click on the "USB Root Hub" to access the properties windows for that device. 7. Click on the "Power Management" tab 8. Remove the checkmark from the box containing the following option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" 9. Click "ok" 10. Close the Device Manager and all other open Windows Test the Mouse to be sure that the new settings are working. You should now be able to leave the mouse unused without it being turned off by the operation system.
