    When I turn on Protection, I always get the error below, yet if I exit and come back in Drive C's protection is "On".

    What could cause this?

    What "Protection" and how are you turning on and off?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave, I'm sorry!

    I was trying to turn on System Protection -- Restore Points.

    At I get an error that it's not turned on. So then I go in and turn it on Drive "C". Then on exiting, I get the error -- every time.

    But then if I cancel out, and then come back in, protection is on for Drive C.

    Chuck,
    Are you still using a "Beta" copy of Windows 7?

    Joe, that was it. I actually showed two "C" drive, both checked, one labeled (System) and one showing as "unnamed". Once I unchecked it, the unnamed drive "disappeared".

    Thanks,

    You're welcome. Glad it is resolved. Thanks for posting back.

    BTW, if you are going to upgrade to Win 7 RTM and since Thursday Oct 22nd is the public release perhaps now is a good time to stop tinkering with what is now an 'old' version.

    Joe, as for the "tinkering", you're right. I'm trying to contain myself! This specific issue is one I have come across a few times, and the only "way out" I'd found to date is to run an upgrade -- total pita.

    If this actually somewhat harmless reg entry can fix it, that would be super. Since all it affects are the "saved sounds", it looks fairly innocuous. I'm actually wishing I could test and prove it out! But don't worry, I'm just cooling my heels!

    Thanks,
    Chuck
