Question

Hello - new on this forum.
Somewhere along the way trying to clean up my PC something was triggered and now the Solution Center automatically runs.
"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the 'Solution Center' disk and click OK"
then in a drop down titled Use source: the #1 shows. there is no other items available in the drop down field.
There is are OK, Cancel and Browse buttons on the right inside this box.
Cancel turns into a loop, can't cancel it!
Contro/Alt/Delete will, only to have it raise its ugly head again, and I'm stuck in the loop again. I believe this action prevented me from downloading an HP photo app as the message along the way inturrupted the download telling me another application was running.

And so on another note: are registry cleaners really "useless?' I have read the same on another forum, of course, right after purchasing one and running it.

Firstly, welcome to TSF.

It sounds as though you have deleted something that is now only half installed and Windows wants the CD to complete it. Try doing a System Restore back to before you started killing things off. This *should* solve the problem and take the machine back to it's previous state.

Let us know.....

Hello mollyzmumzy, Welcome to TSF!

The System Restore that Kev1952 is referring to is this....

Go Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Once in here, on the Left hand side of the panel, there will be a blue link, System Restore Settings; click on it and make sure that the box Turn off System Restore on all Drives is Unchecked, otherwise you do not have any System Restore points to fall back on.
Hopefully your System Restore is available, so in the main System Restore pane (on the right hand side), click Restore my computer to an earlier time; follow the on-screen prompts.

Kind Regards,

Thank you - I held my breath and did my very first system restore. It looks like a couple of other bugs might have been wiped out. Hope so.

So - please answer my Q about registry cleaners. Should one stay away from these? Are they a bunch of hype?

Thanks again for the speedy assistance.

Hello again mollyzmumzy,

Registry cleaners do more harm than good for a computer than what they are worth.
My advise is 'stay clear of them'!

Kind Regards,
