Preferred Solution: How can I change "Registered to" in XP

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Will I run into any problem if I change the Registered Owner (and Registered Company) for my system? (to fix a typo!)

The method is described here:
Registered Owner and Organization - Vista Forums


I did see that some Registry installer sections for non-MS products have picked up the current Registered Owner, so will contact those companies separately.

A:Q: Ok to change "Registered owner"?

Nothing will happen, expect that you own all the files and can edit them now.

Hello!,
I need to change a PC with Windows XP ID number. I think it should be done using the REGEDIT function. Where do I go to change the "Registered To" or Computer Identification name, the name that was entered when Windows XP was first installed on that computer? Thanks, Xavier57

In the Windows 95, 98, ME Forum they explain how to change the "registered" window name: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
Then in the Right pane you should see "Registered Owner". Right click on it and select Modify and change it to what you'd like."

However, this doesn't work for me because there is no "Registered Owner" in the right pane of CurrentVersion. I use Windows XP. Any suggestions?

I am not sure you can change the fonts though if you wish you can change the text from "Shutting Down" to "Bye Bye" or so, by editing, winlogon.exe.mui.

I have a chart in an Excel spreadsheet, and it has several "series" in it. Some of the series are charted as "lines", and some are "areas" that fill in the entire background of anything from 0 to the value I have entered.

I have one particular series that is showing up as an "area" but I want it to be drawn as a "line" instead, so it DOESN'T fill in the area below it. I currently have the "background" as "none", but now I have a line from the last value down to "0", and that's what I want to avoid...

Thanks in advance!

Hello Danny,

The default icon for Devices and Printers is located at the registry locations below. This will also change the icon in all other locatations as well. For example in the Control Panel.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{A8A91A66-3A7D-4424-8D24-04E180695C7A}\DefaultIcon

Hi ?
 
I would like to suggest you try the following:
1. Go to Start > All  Programs > Accessories > Run > and type in regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll and then click OK.  See if that works. 

 
2. If that doesn't work, go to Tools / internet Options / Advanced and check the box to disable script debugging in Internet Explorer and see if that helps.

 
3. Set  IE to be the default browser in the Control Panel, Default programs applet, Set Program Access and Defaults. Change the default browser to IE.

 
(You can also reach this dialog through IE?s Tools, Internet options menu, or Control Panel, Internet options. Look on the Programs tab for the Set Programs button.)
 
4. You may also remove the other web browsers if you have.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

"Windows was unable to complete the Format."

So how do i change its file system to "NTFS"?

A:How to change "FAT32" penDrive to "NTFS"? can't format it "NTFS"

On some flash drives used here I simply boot up from a live GParted cd while the drive is plugged in and go as far as repartitioning the drive totally while booted live. From there even with the drive's volume formatted to NTFS Windows may still want to have the format option used as well as the check now option to scan for errors.

You should be able to do that with Partition Wizard or any other live partitioning program without Windows involvement which will tell if the drive is in good working shape. Once the system is restarted following the removal of the factory partition and the new one on unplug the drive before Windows loads up and wait until the desktop is fully loaded to then replug the drive back in for the fresh detection.

If the autoplay option for all media devices is checked off a flashing icon may appear on the taskbar, your av program's prompt to run a scan on the drive should be seen. and the prompt to format it for use should be seen. The message will also insist on checkong for errors with the second option of automatically fixing any seen before the format can take place.

Hi! I have XP and a question. In Favorites, the icons that are next to the names, have all switched from their original icon pictures, to either the icon for IE, or to a plain Folder. I did not change these and liked it when I could easily distinguish each item (link...whatever they are called), by its icon. Now they all look the same, more or less. Can anybody tell me why this icon switch occured? And more importantly, how to get these icons back to how they looked before, with the individual icons? And...how to get them to stay that way and not be changed again. Thank you...sure don't know how I managed to do this one... ...your help is very appreciated!! parrotplay

I have Windows XP Home with Outloook Express (OE)

For some unknown reason, intermittantly, my previous OE "sent items" change a block of emails to the date of the next month, that is, a block of emails that were 1/Nov/2010, 2/Nov/2010, etc., become 1/Dec/2010,2/Dec/2010, etc., and this causes current sent emails to seemingly dissapear, until you realise they are bundled back behind the date of the incorrect next month that has been incorrectly generated on previous emails.

Has anyone come across this peculiar anomally, found what causes it and how to fix it?

PS I just noticed the same thing is happening in my OE "Drafts" section - I have a block of November drafts that have been "post dated" to next month (Dec)

Hey there,

New to the forums but I did search through to see if there was a solution to my problem. Well, problems.

Computer: Dell Dimension 4700, Win XP, SP2, Office 2003 Issue:Word/Dcom

For starters that is the error message I receive when opening an old document in a clients office 2003 word program. Each time "this document could not be registered."

I know the fix for this is starting up dcom, and if that doesn't work then RPC. However, RPC is running fine but here is the kicker.

There is NO DCOM for me to start up in services.msc

Help. The DCOM service is not even listed in services, and I can't find it in msconfig either.

Thanks in advance, hopefully we can resolve this. Thanks again.

Hi,
Go to Start > All  Programs > Accessories > Run > and type in regsvr32 ExplorerFrame.dll and then click OK.  See if that works.  If that doesn't work, go to Tools / Interet Options / Advanced and check the box to disable script
debugging in Internet Explorer and see if that helps.  If not, read on:
If that doesn't resolve the problem, then try the following two procedures in the order presented:

I am trying to use a program called AVSVIDEOREMAKER, and when I try to start it I get the above error message. From what I have read it has something to do with a dll file. How I determine which file is causing the problem?
How can I correct this?

A:error "class not registered"

What is the exact error message you are receiving. Is the application compatible with your OS? Such an error usually means an incompatible OS (or lacking a necessary service pack or update), a missing DLL, or one with the wrong version (usually too old). If the error message doesn't identify the problem you may need to contact the software supplier. They will know the software better than anyone else.

Hello

I have a Dell laptop with 120 GB hard drive, partitioned in 20GB and 100GB. Foolish, I now realise. I need to expand that small partition, or maybe merge them into one.

I have downloaded Partition Logic 0.69 and created the CD. When I boot up my Dell laptop from the CD, the Visopsys loads, but it tells me that there is no hard disk registered. Then I have to quit.

The laptop boots fine from the HDD, which is Vista SP1.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Whenever I try to open file folder in Vista, I get an error popup that says "Class not registered" with no other details.

I'm using a three year old Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

I can open programs, use google chrome, firefox, but can't open file folders, recycle bin, windows update, the start menu or my computer.

I have run a few registry fixers, attempted a restore point fix with Advanced SystemCare, all to no avail.

Also, Microsoft office seems to be re-installing every time I open it.

Is there any way to fix Class Not Registered error?

A:"Class not registered" error

The problem indicates that the troublesome areas are not associated with the registry.
If the problem just began use a system restore to return to normal.
If that does not work, a repair install may do the trick.

It's a mole hill of a problem, but it is a bit annoying to have to click on my principal drive ("C") every time I'm doing a "save". I have enclosed an excerpt of a screen shot of my "save as" window to display how the default drive being automatically selected is the "D" drive rather than the "C" drive that I use primarily. To be honest, I don't know whether this can be corrected by a software change, or whether it's the way the two hard drives are connected in my computer.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has a suggestion to offer if there is a way to make my "C" drive the default selection when I attempt to do a save function. Thanks

Have you tried clicking on the "Set up a new connection or network" link and following the steps to create a new connection? You should be able to create a new connection using the Gigabit adapter and then just remove the old public profile.

Hi,

html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

A:BSOD every few hours: mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "c00021a" & "c0000135"

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Hi Looking for insight advice re KB According to Infoworld it was quot Optional quot in May but I was not offered it then This KB3054476 "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" offered as week it was offered as quot Important quot and quot Recommended quot but only for one of my Win boxes I have read the MS KB article as well as THIS FORUM THREAD the latter of which includes a report of a BSOD due to this particular update However there isn't much out on the web about it And most of the discussion about it is overly technical for me And I am confused as to why it was previously offered as quot Optional quot but now is quot Important quot KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" or quot Recommended quot I don't think I quot need quot it as I have no webcam on this box And I don't like KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional" to tempt fate by fixing things that are not broken So questions Is it safe to install Is it really necessary important Or would I be OK to hide it Thanks very much in advance

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Other than re-installing the OS, is there anyway to change these two things to her name?

I believe that it has to do something with Microsoft updates.The reason i believe this, is that i once reinstalled my PC and didn't have any problem until i didn't update my PC.
And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi, I am hoping someone can tell me what is going wrong here...

I have two versions of Sonar X1 Producer installed - the 64bit version and the 32bit version.

Sonar projects use the extension .cwp and by default open with the 64bit version, located at program files/cakewalk/sonar x1 producer/sonarpdr.exe

However, since the 64bit version is unstable, I wish to use the 32bit version to open the .cwp files

When I try to change the default "opens with", by assigning the default to program files (x86)/cakewalk/sonar x1 producer/sonarpdr.exe it doesnt change.

Is this because both exe files are titled the same, just that one is in the 64bit programs folder and the other is in the 32bit, and Windows is thinking they are the same program, hence it wont change it from the 64bit to the 32bit version of the exe?

Many thanks for your help!

A:Change "opens with" from 64bit version of prog to 32bit, not working

I managed to suss it out, and so if anyone else has this problem, here is what you can do...

Open Regedit, and search for the exe that is giving you trouble.

Keep searching the registry until you come to the path that is incorrect, then edit it to the correct path.

Done

I have 2 networked hard discs acting as fileservers in my local intranet (which consists of 2 studio computers - Mac and PC, an office PC running Vista, and the 2 networked drives, all under the same Workgroup)...

I have no access issues on any of my machines except the office PC running Vista (Home Premium 64)... on the Vista machine, even though I've added the IP addresses of the networked drives to my trusted zone, they show up in Windows Explorer as being in the "Internet Zone" and I can't seem to change that (which creates all kinds of rights/permission issues for some of the applications I'm running)...

Any ideas?

G'day everyone After doing some Googling I discovered that it is impossible in Windows to sort files by file extension -- one can only sort by file type which depends on the file type description This means that if I want to sort by file type I need to rename the type descriptions of all my most "Type" of change types How to the easily in Explorer description file commonly used files In addition the only place where I can see a file's extension is in the file name itself and not e g in the status bar when a file is selected In Windows the file type description not the file extension is also in the status bar In other words in Windows all files labelled e g quot Opera Web Document quot are sorted as if they have the same file type regardless of whether they are html htm mht etc And if I select a file and look at the status bar the file's type is indicated as quot Opera Web Document quot without any clue as to the file extension The only way for me to see the file extension is to increase the width of the quot Name quot column until the end How to easily change the "Type" description of file types in Explorer of How to easily change the "Type" description of file types in Explorer the file name becomes visible So my question is Is there an easy way to simply rename the file type descriptions I see that my JPG files are named quot JPG File quot and my PNG files are named quot PNG quot file which is extremely useful What I now want is to rename my HTML HTM and MHT files' file types to quot HTML File quot quot HTM File quot and quot MHT File quot and the same would apply to all file types I often use e g DOC DOCX XLS XML TXT etc Thanks Samuel

I've discovered Default Programs Editor but that only does one file at a time, using a very long, cumbersome route. But... it works. Something quicker with the possibility to automate would be nice, though.

I click on the "+" beside the icon of a drive or folder near the bottom of the left pane of my Windows 7 Explorer. If the list of sub folders that opens is longer than the distance to the bottom of the pane, the lower icons become hidden. Those subfolders extend "below" the pane -- out of view. I want the contents of the pane to shift upward so that all the sub folders of interest are visible -- like on my XP computer and my win98 computer?

Is there a way that I can fix this?

Hi

How do I get the search box "search programs and files" (i.e. the one above the Start button) to sort the results within each section by DATE, rather than by name?

Note I do NOT mean the search top right in Windows Explorer, which fwiw, is already working nicely in date order!

Clue:
I have installed Classic Shell but I read a thread saying that it wont have touched this.

J
EDIT: I am told that the files listed are ranked partly by frequency of use. And I am now wondering is this is data which my CCleaner utility is deleting. Either way the sort order have become VERY much less useful in the last couple of weeks. Any thoughts?

Hi,

I would like to know if there is any way we can control (or modify)the "change owner to" drop box list in windows for a particular resource (for example say a file) using a vbscript or batch script.

the reason i am asking this is because for usbstor.inf file , i have given ownership access to domain admin group via batch script, but since administrator and my id are appearing in the "change owner to" drop box, i am again able to regain ownership back and then modify the permissions for the usbstor.inf file. I have tried using subinacl for denying the take ownership permission for the administrator group and my id , but even then i am able to take ownership back.
any help to resolve this issue is reallyr really appreciated

Okay, so I recently moved to try and get a more simple look on one of my laptops. I have found that I like using the Soft7 2.0 theme with Token icons. But what I have noticed is that my clock no long matches. I'm wanting to know how do I change my clock color to something that matches and is a little more easy to read. Like black.

Also, I would like to get rid of that awful "Show Desktop" button in the bottom right. I have tried the tool from Kishan but it doesn't stay. When I click on anything involving the notification tray, it just pops back up. Does anyone have a fix for this?
