Windows fixes using Regedit

Postby burger2227 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:14 am

Windows 7 started having a Logitech Download Assistant warning with LogiLDA.dll on startup

Solution? Edit the Registry because apparently the LDA program ASSUMES that the PC drive is C when it may not be.
The error clearly states the path as C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll

I have XP on C hard drive and Windows 7 on E: hard drive so Windows 7 will never find the DLL on C:

Startup errors occur only for programs Run at startup. So in REGEDIT Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


Change the drive letter from C: to E: in this case:

Note that all of the other Run keys use E: as the drive path!

You may also want to verify the correct path to the DLL file in System32...

How to Change the Registered PC Owner in Any Version of Windows
Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box or by pressing WIN + R to open the Run box and typing it there, and then locate the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

Now you can find the RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganization keys in the right-hand pane. Change them to whatever values you want by clicking on them and retyping what you want.

To show off the new changes, just type winver.exe into the start menu search or WIN + R run box to see the About Windows box.

Both of my Registration boxes merely said Microsoft...
