my setup files are not working,registry as well.what should i do?
thanks in advance.
Corrupt system or virus probably quicker doing fresh windows installation.
Are you able to provide some details, what setup files are not woking? how are you calling the regedit?
all the .exe file give error.
Yep, more than likely it's malware.
As already suggested it'd probably be less painful & quicker to do a reinstall of the OS.

thanks for replys.so i gonna install new windows.
Once you do get windows installed do yourselfe a favour make a backup of your system with either windows backup or other backup software you can restore in a few minutes
Hello m8, Is it all exe files that dont run? like setup.exe regedit.exe etc. If so, it may be the file association in your registry thats screwed up.
Heres one to try, copy the text below and paste into notepad. Then save as exefix.reg and run the reg file. Do a restart after, if it is the file
associations it should be sorted, if not no harm done.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shellex\PropertySheetHandlers\ShimLayer Property Page]
i tried this but when i double click on it==>it gives the same error
That is because regedit can't run to import the regfile.
Hello m8, shame the reg option did`nt work, so here`s another approach, if you are on xp get a copy of ERD, if your on Vista / 7 then get a copy of dart, boot from the disc that suits your system, both of them have their own system restore feature, maybe you can restore back a week or so. If you have data you dont want to lose maybe this can help. Just a thought, does the problem also occur in safe mode?
anyway you can get another copy of the installation file?
