hi, ty for the tip. replaced all .reg files. same problem. Default search.reg is unable to finish, error msg attached, i tryed to start it from safe mode, same thing.

the thing is that if i try to run the program by it self, lets say just oppening VLC it openes normally, but if i try to open it through a file, it crashes. same with Win Media Player. I have attached error msgs i have encountered.

If i try to start League of Legends it lounches but when i click play it stops working....when i try to run updater it starts but than shuts off automaticly. Same happenes if i try to run Hearthstone, it starts and that after few sec it shuts down, i am gettin no error messages from either.

Thank you for the help, much appreciated.
