Note If you are not on the computer that has the problem, you can save the automatic fix to a flash drive or to a CD, and then you can run it on the computer that has the problem.
Now go to the "Did this fix the problem?" section.

- Copy the following information, paste it into the text editor, and then save the file as Skiprunonce.reg:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
- Exit the text editor.
- Double-click the Skiprunonce.reg file that you created in step 2.
When you run the Skiprunonce.reg file, you will receive the following message:Are you sure you want to add the information in path of .reg file to the registry?Click Yes. Then you will receive the following message:Information in path of .reg file has been successfully entered into the registry.
- In Windows Vista, when non-administrator users try to run SkipRunOnce.reg they are prompted for an administrator password.
- To run SkipRunOnce.reg for all users at the same time, modify SkipRunOnce.reg by replacing [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] with [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] and then running it as an administrator.
