Window 7: REGEDIT.EXE - Application error appears everytime I start Window 7

Hi,

The above error message appears everytime I start Window 7. I just click ok and continue.

May I know if this is due to a bug in the software or otherwise ?

Does this error affect the performance of MS Office 2007 and other software that is running on my PC ?

How could I fix it ?

Thanks

Low

Hello Mr. Low,

1.     Can you tell me the complete error message you get, this appears to be an incomplete error message?

2.     Have you made any changes (hardware or software) to the computer before getting this error?

Here are the answers to your questions:

Question 1:

This is not a bug and could be related to some software.

Question 2:

This ideally would not have any impact on the performance of any application.

Question 3:

It appears to me that some of the startup item is failing to initialize correctly. If should check if you have the same issue in ‘Safe Mode’. You can follow the below article that will show you ‘How to boot the computer to Safe Mode’:

If you don’t get any error in ‘Safe Mode’ it could be possible that this is caused by a some startup item. You can set your computer to Clean boot and check if the issues persist:

Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.

a.     Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.

b.     If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

c.      On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)

d.     Click OK, and then click Restart.

Here is an article that will give you information on how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot:

Regedit.exe does not load on startup automatically. I am thinking that there could be a possible virus infection on your computer. I suggest that you run a Windows onecare scan on your computer:
