Restore your help and setting option (registy)

By William_Wilson
Modify this key:

Path: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Environment]
key: windr
first delete this key that already exists (if it's typ is: REG_SZ if not you have a more serious explorer issue), then in it's place create a new key of typ:Expandable String by right clicking in the right pane.
it's type will be: REG_EXPAND_SZ name it windir as it was before, and make the data %SystemRoot%.

This should solve the problem, i have added the script for the same process below, but i have not had any success with it. The keys in certain folders are not easily changed by script.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

NOTE: the type of the key is usually what is changed... somehow by Windows, from an expand key to a normal REG_SZ. This simply corrects this mistake.
