SUReg Create Key Failed

I am working on a system (Windows ME) that will not hit the wireless network, it was working fine a short time ago and the other day I turned it on and it would not access the network, I tryed to access the wireless network through the linksys gui and it gave me this error "SUReg Create Key Failed" and nomatter what I do it will not let me reload,reinstall,or repair the gui.  I know the network is up cause I have a laptop that accesses the network there and its working fine.

thanks for your help

There's a thread at Annoyances.org about this problem.  It begins here:


It has a number of responses, such as this:


What seems to fix it for some people is to boot to a WinME boot disk, so that you will be in DOS, then type either:

scanreg /fix


scanreg /restore

This presumably either fixes the registry or restores it to a previous working version.
Macspcs, any feedback?
