  1. I have a problem with changing the import options in the windows photo
    gallery. when i select the options and go to the import tab, the whole tab
    is blank and there are no options as there should be.

    any ideas??

    thanks.

  4. My guess is that the registry cleaner you use may have wiped out one or more registry keys (GUID or associated AppID data) related to WPG Import dialog. Does the registry cleaner you use has an "undo" feature?

    Hi
    There are the links for CCleaner and Free Registry Cleaner:
    http://www.ccleaner.com/
    http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm
    There is no "undo" option in any of this program.

  9. It's not the registry cleaners, as I tested both and can't replicate the problem. Try this:

    Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

    Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    sfc /scannow

    The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    Thanks for your advice Ramesh but sfc/scannow command doesn`t help :-(
    Verification stops on 85% and there is a signature: "Windows resource
    protection could not perform the requested operation".
    Of course import tab in Windows Photo Gallery is still blank :-(
    Regards

  11. Hi four40,

    No idea why SFC failed to complete. Try this:

    Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator

    Type the following command and press {ENTER}

    regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Gallery\PhotoAcq.dll"

  13. Hi four40,

    No idea then. Perhaps I should fix this if you send me a remote assistance / CrossLoop invitation.
