recently i had to rebuilt the registry in my pc but since then its like windows doesnt know what to do with anything anymore lol. everything is where it should be but since i replaced the registry completely it doesnt know the programs are there despite everything being installed. so slowly ive been trying to fix everything as i notice when somethings wrong. (eg. couldnt install programs, had to reinstall windows installer) so right now im trying to connect to my wifi and its not happening, the drivers are installed for the wireless network card, the configuration program opens up just fine, but both windows and the program cant seem to find any wireless signals AT ALL, even though im in an apartment building and theres signals everywhere. manual configuration doesnt work, and i cant figure out what else to try.
are there any windows services or components i could try reinstalling to get this working right again? im assuming thats what it probably is. and is there anyway i can fix the registry other than reinstalling or updating things so they re-register in windows registry?
