Do not mess with the Registry if you do not know what you are doing, removing or making changes incorrectly can cause severe problems with your Windows Operating system. I will not be responsible for any damage or lost programs, files or data.
- Go to Start Menu, type regedit and press <Enter>. This will open the Registry Editor.
- In the editor navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / GAMEUX. There are several long numbers (also called GUIDs) listed under GAMEUX.
- Click on each one until you see the info on the Right side of the window.
- Once you find the key info that contains the name of the ICON you want to remove, just right click on it and delete that registry entry folder.
- By deleting the one I have highlighted yellow and circled in red it will delete the ICON called XFire.

Internet explorer not connecting to the Internet In Windows 7
I had been using Windows 7 for a while now and then one day I booted up into it and bang IE 8 would not connect to the internet, what the heck. No matter what i tried it would not connect. I check all my settings and my network, I could connect to any computer on my network and the Network Sharing Center showed it connected to the web. I tried setting IP addresses and resetting my router, but nothing worked in IE 8 to connect.
Windows update worked fine, Anti-Virus updated fine along with everything else.
I downloaded FireFox and it worked fine. HHHHHMMMMMMM
I figured out why IE 8 wasn’t connecting to the internet and have solved the problem, hopefully.
