Another case in point. Do not use Registry Cleaners/Optimizers!

Try this
Support: How do I restore the registry to undo the changes made by RegistryBooster? - Uniblue

If that does not repair the damage, you will need to do a repair install.

When this is all sorted, enable System Restore!
System Restore - Enable or Disable

Thank you for your reply—

I tried my repair disks and recovery disks—they will not activate.

I have only setup disk that came with the emachine computer.

It is no help.

I read about repair install here.

1. Device Drivers - Be sure to have these handy to reinstall
a. Q: How do I get these handy? Or where?
2. I cannot get to the firewall to turn it off
3. I have: MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
a. I am not sure what slipstream is
4. I do have 9 gig free

Thank You In Advance
