Windows 7: Computer Context menu - Manage not working

If you merged the .reg files - the reg entries are correct.

I have no reason to suspect Glary as I can't replicate that on my system. I did exactly what you did - unticked, closed the app. , restarted Glary, then ticked it again . No problems.

I seem to remember I came across this before and don't recall having found the cause.

Check in System Environment variables and see if you have this entry ( yours will probably be C: instead of D: )

If the enviromnmet variable is missing, click New and add it in. It is not unknown for that to do a vanishing act.

Otherwise, see if you have this :

Windows\System32\compmgmt.msc

well been googling around and have found the following :-

Quote:
regedit32.exe program has no way to create a default value of REG_EXPAND_SZ datatype. You have to create a merge file and use "@=hex(2):00,00" to insert a empty string of that datatype. Note that you can created named values of the REG_EXPAND_SZ datatype, just not the default value.
Also found that a few of the reg clean/defrag prog about like Ccleaner, Glary utills, Registary machanic etc are not puting the correct entries into the reg in some instances !

Looks like when i did a reg Clean with Glary it must have messed something up somewhere else in the reg, and i have no chance of finding it. Unfortunately iv also found that because i use a duel boot xpp/win7 system it is causing me to loose my restore points on both xp and win7 because they are both using the same system restore volume, so no restore points for me to use

Well all this is darn annoying & other than putting a short cut up for compmgmt.msc i reckon i might have to do a repair install of win7 or maybe ill just forget about it as its such a minor thing but things like this do tend to drive me mad.

Anyhow thx for all your help chaps, if you have any more suggestions as to what i can do next to diagnose whats gone wrong they would be greatly appreciated.

Thx,
JackDinn.

Thanks Jack,

That's interesting - I have never created a expandable string of Default type however , the .reg file I posted has that @=hex(2) value.

Try this and see if it helps:

Computer.reg

You may want to have a look here:

AppData\Roaming\GlarySoft\Glary Utilities\Backups

If it is there, add a .reg extension to the files without extensions and merge them.

That's odd, I uninstalled Glary too just now - it left the Backups behind, very sensibly.

They are still there on my system.

Are you still having the same issue?

Very strange - Glary deliberately leaves them behind.
