If this problem popped up recently, then you can do a System Restore to a point before the problem day.

You can also do an in-place repair of your Windows installation by booting off of the Windows DVD.

Dear Jenna,

I did not give you any link. That's Tufenuf who gave you a link.

I also checked that link. Do not click the "Recommended fix" on that page but scrolll down to the Directory (written in blue. Directory means Folder) and save contents(.reg file) of the link on your desktop. That is a registry fix which I did not check. So do the following at your own risk. I suggest you create a restore point before going further.

If you click/double-click that file with .reg extension that you have saved on the desktop, the contents of the .reg file will merge into your Windows registry , which might correct the problem.

If you still can't save the .reg file, please copy everything between the dashed lines, open a blank text file with notepad and paste into it. Save the file with .reg extension (e.g. xxx.reg)
