Startup Errors

The most common types of these errors are either a device failed to start upon startup or a program couldn’t be found in the Registry.

Service Failed to Start

You learned about this earlier in this chapter, so refer to that content for more information.

Program Not Found in the Registry

One error message that indicates a startup error is when a program for an installed device isn’t found in the Registry. This usually indicates that the program became corrupted or malware has rewritten the Registry key for the device. If you have a backup of the Registry from a known good state, you can restore it and all is good. If not, try System Restore or last known good configuration options. If you’re really feeling brave and you know what you’re doing, you can try to edit the Registry. You might even try uninstalling and then reinstalling the device to see whether that clears the issue.
