no run command and http:\\ doesn't work

I've noticed a few things about this set up that seem wrong. Running windows 95 with ie5 on a workstation which is part of a LAN with an NT server fileserver controlling the domain. This workstation is the only one that exhibits these following symptoms. 1. There is no run command from the start button. 2. There are two folders in "My Computer" that don't have labels, (DUN & sched tasks?), and 3. When typing an address into ie5 address bar starting with http:\\ I get a resource dissallowed message - starting with just www only works though. I have administritive rights, but can't work out the cause. Any ideas?

On http:\\   the \\   should be //
That's enough to give you trouble there.

IE5 can be troublesome.

Check control panel  add/remove
choose MS IE and tools

Click add/remove and choose the repair option.

IE5 does play with the start menu.

Check to se that you have tweack UI or similatr program installed, and the option to remove the Run command is used.

Are you using Poledit or TweakUI??  With Policy editor, you can disable things such as the run command.  As centerv stated, you can do the same with TweakUI.  As for the folders missing labels.....I think this machine needs a rebuild.  If you AREN'T using Policies or TweakUI, it sounds like you may have some registry problems.

Gallant, there's a few things to check quickly:

1. Check and see if policies are being enforced on this PC,

2. Check to verify if there are any logon scripts or batch files that are influencing the desktop settings.

3. The "Run" command is probably being disabled in the regsitry and that's easy enough to fix, but before approaching that you'll need to verify the policies issue as well as any logon scripting and/or batch files. If scripted or batch changes are being made, manually editing the registry would be a futile effort.

I installed tweakui to correct this, but there is no setting to remove the run command. I have heard there is an advanced version of tweakui, but I have not looked into this. Policies are not being used, Norton reg repair, tweakui's reg repair and ms's scanreg all come up with OK.

Gallant,

1. Start Regedit

2. Go to HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

3. There should already be at least an Explorer key

4. Additional keys that can be created under Policies are System, Network and WinOldApp, you should see a DWORD values set to 1 in a key value called:

NoRun -      Which disables the run command

Sorry I haven't answer for so long.
Dew, you should have got some points for this, you were  right about the norun part, but I was thrown by the fact that there was a damaged install of tweakui on there. This was probably the cause anyway. is there a way I can let you have some points anyway?
There is still a folder in My Computer folder that has no label, and clicking it makes no change. Any ideas.

The only way for you to post points would be to post a new question but directed to me. Thanks!
Den

As for the blank folder, let's make sure I understand what your are seeing. You click into My Computer and you see a folder without a title, is this correct? Have you tried right clicking on it to check the properties?

Gallant_ukAuthor Commented:
I will post a question titled do you want some points.

Yes, I have a folder with no title. Double clicking does nothing. Right clicking gives me a choice of Cut, Copy and Delete. Each of which do nothing.
I am bemused.

Martin,

What you see in My Computer is generally contained in the following registry key:

HKCR\{20D04FE0.....

But you need to be real real carefuly search the key to find which is placing that icon or folder in My Computer.

Okay Martin I'll wait for the question to be posted.

All, but the phantom folder have been fixed by the norun = 1 in the registry.
I looked for the HKCR\{20D04FE0 thing dew, but found nothing in the reg that came even close.

dew_associatesCommented:
Martin, When you visit that key in the registry, what do you see?
0
 
Gallant_ukAuthor Commented:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaResources\FilterList\fl.AddReg
There are two mentions of HKCR in this record above which seems to have something to do with the soundrec. When searching for the string HKCR there are no other matches in all of the registry.
By the way you haven't picked up your points. Search for "do you want some points dew".

dew_associatesCommented:
You need to look at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT at the location I noted. There should only be one!
0
 
Gallant_ukAuthor Commented:
That's just what I'm saying. There isn't one. I did a search for that string and I can not find it!
There is a couple of references to it as stated above, but otherwise no sign.

dew_associatesCommented:
That's really strange as there should be a minimum of one entry for the registry to load correctly.

Gallant_ukAuthor Commented:
How about this, is this what you were looking for?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} name=Default data="value not set"
name=infotip data="displays the contents of your computer"
