[CENTER]I KNOW THIS SHOULD BE IN A DIFFERENT FORUM BUT I WILL GET MORE ANSWERS HERE **PLEASE DO NOT MOVE**[/CENTER]
I have a few small probs...
1. I need to know how to change the thing on my Internet Explorer (see pic)
It should say "Internet Explorer". Apparently when I d/l something not long ago, the maker decided to leave his tag on it. There must be a way to change it.
2. When I start up my comp. I get a message on my login screen. It says something like
"Message Detail: cannot find user... using default user..."
something like that. I will write it down next time. I think its a problem with a .reg but I have no clue...
1. Go to Start, Run, type Regedit Go to Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main Modify/Create the Value Name [Window Title] Data Type: REG_SZ [String Value] - Value Name: Window Title Value Data: Delete that crap from there and put whatever you want or delete it Exit and Reboot computer
2. And did you upgrade to XP from another O/S, i.e. Me, 98?

ya what shord said!
Every time I try to run it only pops up for a second then goes away. Is there any other way to edit them? like notepad?
No, I had XP the whole time. I have no idea whats wrong
EDIT: NEVERMIND, I d/l a registry editor and fixed it, THANKS SHORD :)
Ok here is what it says about the lohin screen:
"The system has attempted to load or restore a file into the registry but the specific file is not in registry file format"
WTF am I to do? Please help!
unfortunate as you feel that this won't get a response in Computer Discussions, its where it belongs, and if i leave this here, then everytime someone has a problem they will post in general yib yab saying "DONT MOVE" nothing against you Godsmacked.
i would check the msconfig from run and see what exactly is starting up in the startup tab. sounds like you have some sort of data mining software loaded on your computer
I cant open MSCONFIG! It pops up for a few seconds then dissapears! Whats the deal!? I try over and over and nothing works. Does anyone know? I am desperate, what about remote assistance?
I know exactly what the problem is. You were probably downloading porn, which is fine cuz this is how it happened to me. And you downloaded a .scr file on accident and ran it.
well theres a new form of "virus" the scr files will run continuosly and close down these programs. ONly way to get rid of it from running is to find the process id and kill it then delete the file.
hahah that so funy crash stoke the truth about downloading porn
