HOW TO INSTALL THE DRIVERS FOR YOUR CD-ROM?

Question

My CD-Rom Driver has just disappeared & I found the answer from your site , I went through these steps:

1. Start the REGEDIT.EXE program.

2. Go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer

but the problem is when I go to : Current versions\Policies , in Policies folder there is no folder named : Explorer ! there are only " Network " & "Rating" folders.

What should I do?

Please if you can help me.

Thanks alot.

With best wishes
