Problem with .reg file...
Posted 14 July 2004 - 03:52 AM
Anyway, a person did reply and told me to download a .reg file that will fix the problem. I downloaded the .reg file and clicked on it, but got a error message: "editing of the register has been inactivated by the administrator" (I'm not sure if that is exacly what the english verson of WinXP says, but it should be something similar. I use the Swedish verson of XP).
Almost nothing in my control panel work either. So my only chance to fix this is by getting that .reg file to function. How? Is there any other way to get the .reg file to work, other than just clicking on it?
Any respond would be extremely apprecaited.

Make a copy of regedit.exe to your desktop and rename it to
If it is a problem of file associations then regedit must run with this extension without problem
if it runs then you can navigate to this key
Here is how you navigate there
1)If it shows mycomputer click the + sign in front of it
click + sign in front of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
2)press the letter without quotes "e"
3)scroll down till you reach exefile
4)click the + sign in front of exefile
5)click the +sign in front of shell
6)click the +sign in front of open
7)click the open folder
and check if the value is as below
Are you an Administrator on your machine ???
You can also check if registry editing has been disabled
but reply to above before I type further
