  1. Cannot change the start value data in Registry Editor


    So, I bought my pc a few weeks ago and I recently realized windows isn't updating itself. I looked up in services and found "wuauserv" to disabled. I tried to start the Windows Update Service from there but it stops itself after starting. Then, I ran Registry Editor as administrator. I found the start value data for "wuauserv" set to 4. I changed it to 2 and hit ok. But when I come back to the same value I see it set to 4 and as one would expect the update service is still disabled. Can anyone help me find the solution? This is driving me crazy. Will a windows repair installation fix this problem?

    Modded Registry. Want Old Back....

    did you try this

    To restore the registry
    Open Registry Editor.
    Click Options, and then click Print to print these instructions. (If you are using the Help and Support Center, click Print above the topic area.) They will not be available after you shut down your computer in step 2.
    Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
    In the list, click Restart, and then click OK.
    When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
    Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
    NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

    Use the arrow keys to highlight an operating system, and then press ENTER.
    Caution

    Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on your computer.
    Notes

    To open Registry Editor, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
    Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
    When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, Windows restores information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet only. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.

    Various Folders' Default Icon Value Data in Registry Editor


    Hi Guys,

    I hope I've posted this in the correct channel.

    Basically, I'm after the default icon's value data for four folders in the registry editor. I stupidly removed them without copying them down whilst customising their icons. For example, Control Panel has the following CLSID and Default Icon Value Data:

    Control Panel 5399E694-6CE5-4D6C-8FCE-1D8870FDCBA0 %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-27

    The folders in question are:

    Folders CLSID Default Icon's Value Data
    Desktop folder {B4BFCC3A-DB2C-424C-B029-7FE99A87C641}
    Documents folder {A8CDFF1C-4878-43be-B5FD-F8091C1C60D0}
    Downloads folder {374DE290-123F-4565-9164-39C4925E467B}
    Pictures folder {3ADD1653-EB32-4cb0-BBD7-DFA0ABB5ACCA}
    Appreciate your help on this.

    Thank you,
    Andrew

    Cannot change the start value data in Registry Editor

    Registry Editor Values are not getting listed

    Hi Sridhar

    Not all Registry entries will exist on all systems, and sometimes, you need to make a change on your PC for a registry key/value to be created

    Since you cannot see VisualFXSetting then that value does not exist on your system for one of the above reasons

    You can manually create that entry - right click an empty space in the right pane, choose new DWORD, set its name to VisualFXSetting then double click that and set its value data to 3 (that's its default value)
