  1. Repairing GUI and windows after trying GameXP


    I dont know what has messed up my win XP ui. I am suspecting GameXP did it probably, but although i did restore some glitches like images preview not working, filmstrip not working, jpg thumbnails not working, etc there is a number of other issues that i cant fix. Is there a way to repair / restore the windows XP GUI as a whole? (or at least the issues i mention below?)

    I tried [sfc /scannow] and XP repair install with no results.

    Here are some of the glitches i have found so far, i am sure there are more. Highlighted by the red outlines ....

    I already contacted the GameXP author to provide me with a list of registry alterations their program does but no response yet



    just for the record other glitches i noticeably came across after nasty GameXP:

    - one specific usb root hub or a device attached to it (joystick) needs to have its "allow pc to turn power off in this device" option unchecked in order hibernation to work properly (otherwise it would automatically resume back instead of shutting down)

    - video files associations messed up especially optical media autorun acossiations related to cyberlink power dvd (could fix that installing again power dvd i guess?)

    - strange dvd movies playback glitches: the monitor going blank reporting off range frequency or the whole desktop moving down the screen and losing the cursor or the bottom of the desktop (including the taskbar) being lost in a black horizontal zone .....

    - often "memory read" failures from different programs with specific memory addresses for each of them (not random memory error messages)

    [ The instruction at "xxxxxxxxxx" referenced memory at "xxxxxxxxx". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program. Click on CANCEL to debug the program ]

    [ The instruction at "xxxxxxxxxx" referenced memory at "xxxxxxxxx". The memory could not be "written".Click on OK to terminate the program. Click on CANCEL to debug the program ]
