    Default This months pc dilema.:(

    Came home and was informed the wifeys Compaq WinME was once again on the blink.
    Windows opens with a "Found new hardware" screen. It is showing the floppy drive (A:) as new hardware. Hit "search for new driver" radio button and get a "cannot locate" message. Then I get an error box with the following message in it: Enum\HTree\Root\O
    SuregCreateKey failed!


    Any ideas what the heck is going on? Wifey says she did absolutely nothing to the pc. I have heard that one before....:) Thanks for any replies.

    Got this rascal myself..........:) If this happens to anyone who might be reading here, boot to safe mode with a floppy. At the a: prompt type in
    scanreg /restore (note the space after the scanreg). Simply pick a date when everything was working, reboot, and all should be well again....:)

    Or you could get rid of ME because it's such a bad OS ( i never liked it anyway). I know money is tight these days, but you could get XP Home upgrade for really cheap now-a-days anyway!

    The wifey loves her Compaq 633, with a whopping 64meg of ram. It has the matching speakers, with the color co-ordinated fabric and plastic..:)

    Forget XP, but 98/98SE is much better than ME. You could get that for next to free.
