hello

I have been contending with the effects of msblast,msiexec16 and I believe another one with renames its self on every reboot..(been collecting them in a zip file). But that is not my problem..in my efforts to clean my laptop I have deleted a key in my registry with makes my computer unable to execute apps. most importantly my registry again...how can I repair this without having to reformat...will reinstalling th XP OS repair the reg.?

Any assistance would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks to all who care enough to read.

Well, I'm not fully sure I understood the problem... If it was the exefile handler, then just put this in the registry: (or make sure its there:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.EXE]
(Default)="exefile"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
(Default)=""%1" %*""

If not, try one of these other people's suggestions.

Oh, wait... can't run executables? Regedit would be out of the question then, wouldn't it... hmm.

Well, it it was the exefile handler... screensavers are really programs. Rename the file you need to run (regedit?) to end in a .scr and right click, configure (same as a typical exe that way).

A little Off Topic- I collect my viruses in a zip file too! (Actually, RAR, because my Anti-virus goes nuts with zips...). Recently, I collected five in two days...

Thanks for the tip about the scr...once registry was run it automatically saved the exe version and once again I can use executables...now to try and remove these viruses...
