Please let me know how to over com the problem, what to do or is there any software which helps to resolve this problem

Hello Fraz Ahmad

As there are so many windows updates to be had, especially after a clean install of windows, you are first going to want to make sure you have in fact completed all windows updates, that would be all 'critical' as well as 'optional'. During this process you will find restarting necessary and then checking windows updates again, until you are getting the 'no updates available'. After this, perform one more restart and if you are still getting registry issues, I suggest using CCLEANER and using the TOOLS within ccleaner, checking the start up and disabling or deleting things that are not necessary.  Visit my website at and read the TIPS page on OPTIMIZING your computer. Then go to the SOFTWARE/SUPPORT page where I suggest installing all the items from the PINK section as they will help with this cleaning and optimizing of your system, making sure you are free and clear from any malware and other unnecessary start up issue.

Hope this helps,

As I have been volunteering in the 'windows' category since the inception of AllExperts, which has now moved to numerous windows categories. I will therefore be happy to answer any Windows 7,8 and 10 based question. What can't I answer? Not much, as this is the main reason I volunteered here, because I am hopeful the questions I can not answer will allow me to investigate the problem so that I can answer it. The TIPS and SOFTWARE support through my website at can also be of some help.


I have owned my own computer consulting business for the past 17 years and since the very beginning I have volunteered with AllExperts in the hopes I would be able to learn from others mistakes and problems. The goal for me is to be able to research any problem I don't initially have the answer to, in the hopes I will be able to further benefit for my own clients when they come across a similar problem.

For the past 17 years I have been providing technical services from building computers to constructing complete control rooms. Working with CTV I have helped produce the 1994 Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.
