    sad Microsoft error message on startup

    Hello Friends,

    Whenever i try to turn on my pc, it displays the following pops up shortly after windows loads: "Microsoft (C) Register Server had stopped working. But when i click on the close tab it disappears, but it appears again and again on the desktop screen whenever i try to turn on my system. Currently i'm running Windows Vista on my system. Can any body help me out to resolve this issue? Any information on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks a lot.

    You can reboot to safe mode and remove recently installed softwares and try again. If not working, you can boot to Last Known Good Configuration. Otherwise you may need to test your memory to make sure it is working and working with your mainboard well, and perform a system restore or system recovery, or virus scan or a reinstallation of your Vista.

    Are you running regsvr32 from an elevated command prompt or just from a run/search box? You need elevated privileges to register a .dll or .ocx file with the system.

    It's not just an admin account that's required, you have to run the cmd prompt with elevated privileges. Click start, type cmd, then right click the command prompt entry in the start menu and use 'run as administrator'. Then run the regsvr32 string.
