It went to a white screen right after I did that, but a computer restart seemed to make everything ok until the next day.
It is back running, but not like it was before. My internet explorer browser won't work, but my firefox is fine. A few of my programs like micro niche finder barely run.
I get messages like "The exception breakpoint, a breakpoint has been reached (0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x7egb6ede
My friend who is not a computer expert, but knows a lot more than me, thinks the registry has been corrupted. Does that sound right?
He has suggested I format the hard drive, and reinstall windows. I would rather not do that because of all my programs I have installed that I can't backup, and would have to reinstall.
Do any of these registry cleaner programs, that claim to fix registry errors work?
