registry is corrupted

  1. #11


    I don't have a restore point
    I kinda have a habit of doing a full re install when I have problems
    but this seems like such a simple little thing
    hardly worth the bother

    is there no simple way to just fix the reg

    The previous poster indicated the commands would not fix registry errors.

    Here is a tutorial on opening the elevated command prompt.

    The easiest method is to press the Windows key plus the letter X & choose it from the list.

    It still wouldn't hurt to run them.

    In your next screen shot include the entire prompt window, not just the bottom of it.

    The title bar should say Administrator Command Prompt.
    Like in the tutorial link.

    One final try:
    In elevated command prompt, type or paste in:

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer /v Nosecuritytab /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Hit enter.
    If it doesn't help The attached reg file is all I can come up with.Save it & right click it & choose Merge.

    Click image for larger version



    Security Tab.reg

    I'm out of ideas.

    A refresh install is a pain, but may be needed.
    A full reinstall would be the last resort.

    Hi there
    Might be too late this time but a SERVER should be backed up just like any other computer -- if you have an image backup just restore it --and if you don't well start taking daily image backups. Even on a server separate the OS from any other data / partitions. The W2012 server itself shouldn't need a huge partition -- 40 GB should probably be more than enough especially if you aren't going to store many (if any) applications on it like say Ms OFFICE.

    Most of the Free backup programs will detect you are running a server and will try and scam you into PAYING for the Server edition. However if you get the separate BOOTABLE backup and restore programs these will always work - even for a SERVER as these are usually LINUX based and the Windows disks / partitions are simply just DATA as far as the program is concerned.

    (Download the Free copy on a Non server OS and simply create the Bootable media).

    Cheers
