I've tried using the Microsoft Answers forum... but they've not
exactly been helpful. I also have a 32bit OS, sorry!
A while back in attempting to check and correct my registry of any
problems I downloaded a program, RegSeeker (from Softpedia), which
edited permissions and has caused great problems since. (The program has
been verified as non-malicious, but clearly it doesn't do it's job)
The problems started with my inability to update Skype, then Windows
Updates, and now Silverlight. I need a tool that'll help resolve these
permission issues / corrupt keys.
The 'Patch Registration Cleanup Tool'
simply shows "a productcode must be specified" and exits.
The 'Windows Update Reseter' (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058
is most likely insufficient for my problem, and either way doesn't work.
Is there something that can genuinely help me? The issue is not one
particular key but a range of them - even taking individual keys I am
unable to use RegEdit to fix the problems. What can I do? Is a clean
install really the only thing that'll fix this?
Many thanks in advance,
