Hi tom.

I initially tried to restore things to a restore point created yesterday afternoon, ---- that was what caused the problem.


I've just tried to restore to a point created on the 28th of september, ----- and exactly the same thing has happened.

as for backing up the registry, this is something I've actually never done, in fact I always assumed system restore would sort that type of thing out.

I personally never muck about with the registry at all.

anymore suggestions?

Beware the grue!

dark.

Hi Dark,
Before performing the system restore did you by chance make a restore point to go back to just in case the system restore failed? If so you should go in to system restore and select the latest restore point you have and try and undo some of the changes made by the system restore. As for fixing Outlook Express that is a fairly easy problem to resolve. All you needed to do was go to the Microsoft web site and download the Internet Explorer setup and reinstall Internet Explorer 7 or 8. After that it should install Outlook Express.

P.S.

Ever thought about using Mozilla Thunderbird? It is much safer and more secure than Outlook Express and works fairly well with Jaws 10 and Window Eyes 7.11.

Hi.
I have a small problem, ---- well actually a rather large! problem.
During installation of Java I happened to notice msn explorer was stil on my compter. I attempted to remove it in add/remove programs and by mistake removed outlook express.
"no problem" I thought "time for a system restore"
However, that's when things went very! wrong.
When windows xp restarted, a random window appeared, then it restarted with a default user profile.

After several restarts, another go at a system restore and lots of swearing, I read the random window with ms narrator.
Said random window says:
" windows cannot load the user's profile but logued you on with the default profile for the system. the system has attempted to load or restore a file into the registry but the specified file is not in a registry file format" Needless to say, this is a baaaaaad! state of affiars, and what's worse, outlook express is stil awol! Luckily I A, have this laptop to communicate etc with, and B, have backups of everything on my external harddrive. Stil, the idea of starting everything from scratch on the default profile is pretty hiddeus in terms of amount of work, ---- pluss I'm not sure what I'd be unable to access from my old user profile. Normally, I'd phone dolphin tech support with this sort of issue, but they're not open at weakends, and I'd prefer this fixed Asap. while I know this isn't a tech support list, I'd really! appreciate some help from some of the cleverer people here so as to get this sorted out. If people would prefer to take this off list, just E-mail me on d...@xgam.org.
Any help much and distinctly appreciated.
Btw, as I said, I'm using windows xp. Luckily hal, ---- though not my individual settings or installs of dolphin orphius, is accessible from the default profile, so poking around windows will at least be possible.
sorry again for this, ---- but I am rather stuck here.
all the best,
Dark.
