I use Win ME operating system. I like the way system restore works. I usually have a habit of creating system restore points whenever i install a new program. So, I created more restore points to keep in track of the regular problems. Once I went into system restore to check the created restore points. I was shocked to see that the created restore points are not available. Instead of that it shows me the date something different which i really not expected. The date that it showed is 30, December 1899. Under that the message shows as --- "No restore points created yet". So, i created restore points several times. Even then i could not get the possible answer. What happened to the created restore points? What could be the problem? and tell me ways the to handle this problem. I think that the problem started only when i changed the system date. During that time the System restore may have checked the date to create the system check point by itself.

CAUSE
These behaviors can occur if the file association for Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) Component (.htc) files is absent from the registry.



RESOLUTION
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys and Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it. If you are running Windows NT or Windows 2000, you should also update your Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

To resolve this issue, check for the following keys, if one does not exist, create the key, and then add the values outlined below that belong to the corresponding key:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.htc]
String Value Name: Content Type
String Value Data: text/x-component

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\.htc]
String Value Name: Content Type
String Value Data: text/x-component

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\text/x-component]
String Value Name=CLSID
String Value Data={3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}

Create a Second String Entry with the following Values:
String Value Name= Extension
String Value Data= .htc

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}]
String Value Name ="Microsoft Html Component"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}\InProcServer32]
String Value Name = Default
String Value Data = "C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\MSHTML.DLL"

Create a Second String Entry with the following Values:
String Value Name="ThreadingModel"
String Value Data="Apartment"
To merge all the information at one time, you can copy and paste the following text into Notepad, and then save it as a .reg file:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.htc]
"Content Type"="text/x-component"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\text/x-component]
"CLSID"="{3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}"
"Extension"=".htc"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}]
@="Microsoft Html Component"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{3050f4f8-98b5-11cf-bb82-00aa00bdce0b}\InProcServer32]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\MSHTML.DLL"
"ThreadingModel"="Apartment"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\.htc]
"Content Type"="text/x-component"
