    My Windows XP Professional with SP2 Is Installed in C: Drive !

    Straight To the Prob..

    I was editing registry, Successfuly Moved.. My Document, Shared Document to D: drive! :D

    I also found success in moving Shared Picture to Shared Document in D Drive & Moving Shared Music & Shared Vedio to F: Drive. :D

    Now to The Next stage;

    I wanted to move my profile(Including the 'TEMP' folder) to My Document folder (Now in D: Drive)
    So I edited Registry;

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders]
    &
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

    I edited The Envournment Variable to move the Temp Folder. (My Computer > Properties > System Properties > Advanced > Envournment Variable)

    But After That every thing Went Terribly Wrong I lost My Shared Picture directory Where I had a Hell lot of Pictures & ......:x

    Lots of problem Has Spawned; :evil:

    1) Cannot Use Alt + Ctrl + Del , It says Task Manager Has Been Disabled by your Administrator.

    2) Cannot Enable System Restore (Every Thing got turned off after editing registry)

    3) Cannot Access Computer Managment !


    If U need More Info please Tell Me. :idea:

    Tried Reparing Using Windows XP CD But No Use :?

    I tried moving the Profile using User profile Section (Windows Managment)
    But, It takes a lot of time to logIn (So Dumped the Idea)


    Can Any One Help ??? I Need some Expert's Idea !!!

    Did you backup your registry before editing it ?

    You should have used tools like TweakXP or X-Setup to move default folders to different locations.

    huh?
    First make sure the system restore service is running from services.msc.
    start>run>services.msc
    Set it to automatic.
    Enable system restore from Group Policy editor.
    Start>run>gpedit.msc
    Computer Configuration>Administration Templates
    Set Turn of system restore & Turn of configuration>Not Configured.

    Please definately try this tip....


    Run msconfig.exe...
    if it runs well and good...

    If it doesn't...
    Reaname it and then run it...
    If it runs tis time...
    There is definately a virus or spyware...



    Coz my brother got the same problem....

    If you suspect a virus code lurking in your system registry, run a system cleaner like Trend Micro's tsc. It's a standalone companion to their PC-cillin AV prog, a free download and very effective.

    Ok.. this might sound stupid...
    But is any key of your keyboard stuck??

    And use a firewall like Zonealarm when u connect to the net...

    And also which sites did you open before that happening??

    the same is true in my case too. task manager just shows a green icon in systray for a few seconds and disappears. Also, when I open Windows/Fonts folder, explorer closes. I have used Tweak UI too for repairing Fonts folder. Regedit too closes on its own
