I just got the sane problem Fri Nov 01.
doing the 2 suggested fixes did nothing.
I'm limping along by not loading group items. It's the only way I can get ME to complete loading.
I cannot run Windows ScanDisk or Defrag either.
I think there must be a locked file or locked sector, (probably boot sector)
(Both utilities die immediately).

I'm ready to abandon ME and go 2000.

Default Regenv32

Ok this is going to take a little while to explain, I'm going to try and be as thorough as I can.

I recently re-installed ME on my machine but have been getting an error in Regenv32.exe when I shut down or run msconfig. The system is also very prone to go to blue screen. Also Outlook Express takes about 5 mins to startup and there are also issues with IE stalling when trying to enter text in text fileds or clicking the submit button.

I tried some fixes unsuccessfully (renaming the autoexec and copnfig files and recreating blank ones / renaming regenv32 as .old and extracting a fresh copy from the CD). So I fdisk / reformatted and tried again - same problem.

I tried installing Norton Antivirus 2000 -- it told me I had the w95.Spaces.1445 virus and that almost all of my windows files had been corrupted by it (this was a brand new fresh install). Did some research w95.Spaces is only supposed to affect Win95 machines. More research suggested that the w32.Opaserv.Worm virus disguises itself as the w95.Spaces. I downloaded a removal tool for this but there was no trace of the virus (I also did some manual checks and none of the files normally associated with this virus could be found).

I have since fdisked / reformatted / reinstalled many times but have not been able to solve the problem. If I install Norton after a fresh install it still finds the w95.Spaces virus in all my files.

Fdisk reports that my C: partition has 43% usage even though this is blatantly incorrect. Even after a complete format of C:, fdisk still reports a 43% usage. Could corrupt files remain after deleting and recreating the partition and a format?????????

That's pretty much all the information I have. I really hope someone somewhere has an idea what might be wrong with my PC. All help greatfully recieved, thanx,

Niall McCarthy

Don't use Windows ME!!

Use windows 98, 2000, or even XP instead of ME.

Default regenv32 has caused an error

I just search the rest of MS knowledgebase and found Article 308906 with two suggested fixes for fixing the problem of the regenv32. I used both tricks for autoexec.bat/config.sys and for regenv32 which has solved the problem so far
