1. Bite yourself on the nose as a punishment for carelessly editing the registry.
2. Throw away your computer.
3. Buy a mac.

That is one more reason why you don't touch the registry unless you know what you are doing. That is also one more reason why Linux does not have a registry. :P Oh and how did you start your web browser if you can't open exe files :S

This happened to my brother and he came to the solution of reformating his computer. Really sorry for not being any help [wink].

[EDIT] You could try running a registry fixer program of some kind.

that that is even an option cracks me up.

why would you change random values in the registry( im mean change them to be more random )?

Hahahahaha.

Rename regedit.exe to regedit.com and run it. Old trick.


I acctually had to use that trick to fix a virus on my friends PC - and no I didn't invent it, I googled it.
