Paolo,
Please answer my questions inb my last reply:

Are you right-clicking on the extracted file with the .reg extension, or on the .zip
file?

What exactly happens if you double-click the .reg file?

Try Franc's suggestion....
Click Start Run, type: regedit.exe |Click OK|
Click the Registry menu Import..., and point it to the .reg file you extracted.
What happens when you do that?

Please don't say "Nothing"....describe what happens.


I was right-clicking on the .REG (extracted) file of course, I threw away
the ZIP file as soon as I extracted the REG file
There is no "MERGE" option because the system does NOT recognize it as a
register file, there is just the "Open with...", "Copy", "Cut"... the
usual stuff.
I said "nothing" because after all the trials, the system keeped (keeps)
behaving just as before...

Sorry for being so late in my answer.

Thank you for your patience.

(a) What about the other part of that...?...

"START button, Run, RegEdit, Registry menu, Import Registry File"

(b) What do you see in this Registry key, if anything other than
CDRAutoRun & NoDriveTypeAutoRun...?...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Exp

You need to fix the .reg file association, Paolo. Here is one way to do it,
borrowed from an old post by Steve Yandl:

You can use Regedit to manually write back the settings for reg files, or you can
build a reg file from what's posted between the lines below (don't forget extra
carriage return at end of file), name it "fixreg.reg" and merge the reg file with
the command line:

regedit.exe fixreg.reg

/---start below this line---------------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.reg]
@="regfile"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile]
@="Registration Entries"
"EditFlags"=hex:00,00,00,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\DefaultIcon]
@="c:\\windows\\regedit.exe,1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open]
@="Mer&ge"
"EditFlags"=hex:01,00,00,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\open\command]
@="regedit.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\print]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\print\command]
@="c:\\windows\\NOTEPAD.EXE /p %1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\edit]
@="&Edit"
"EditFlags"=hex:01,00,00,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\edit\command]
@="c:\\windows\\NOTEPAD.EXE %1"


/---end here---------------------------------------
