inability to search via start also VBS script problem Solved:
My last resort on the problem blow was to use a 250gb image of my system made a few months ago..but in frustration and by chance I found an old registry backup from ERUNT for the 30th Dec 2010..I thought oh well all or nothing
..so I restored it via ERUNT and by gum all was well..I had all facilities that I had before including VBS reset to read scripts. So it looks like it was a registry error for sure..or maybe more than one? I want to thank you all for scratching your heads for me..I appreciate your time and effort..and professionalism
All of a sudden I have lost the ability to use typed instructions into the start box . Like for instance I used to be able to type services.msc and away it would go..now I have to use the run facility then type in the instruction..same for reg edit etc....anyone know how I can get the facility back. not sure how I lost it..no new software
The second pic is when I type say regedit into the search box.. I get the white panel showing programs etc as you can see..depending on what I type gives me more or less option to choose from in the panel..sometime all options like picture documents etc...
When I select and click to any of the panel options heading (say programs) open to see what happens I get the first pic the orange error pic.. Hope this helps...
As an aside ..how does one use the 'snipping tool' for this sort of capture..when I select tool and an option say rectangle..OK I am fine but when I open start search type in... I lose the typing tool facility to capture..anyone help here......is there a hot key..I use the 'windows' key but to open start but then what..as soon as I type I lose snipping use..
I had to use the old fashioned print screen ..it worked tho
