The registry scan will look for and remove unnecessary registry entries. Once this task is performed then you can install Mass Effect video game software like normal. Hopefully, you are now able to play this video game.
If you are still having problems getting this Mass Effect video game software to work successfully, you can run two Microsoft Windows system scans. The first one is called a system file check. You want to type this command into a command prompt with administrator rights:
I recommend running this scan three times. The second Microsoft Windows system scan you can perform is what is known as a check disk scan. You want to type the following command into a command prompt with administrator rights:
chkdsk c: /f /r
You want to type Y for yes when you are notified that the volume is in use. This will schedule a check disk scan for the next Microsoft Windows restart. You want to restart your computer.
Do NOT touch the keyboard. A check disk scan should begin with 10 seconds. This scan cant potentially take hours to run.
If this scan does NOT begin, then schedule that scan again with the instructions I already provided to you. Hopefully, you can finally begin playing Mass Effect video game on Microsoft Windows 7. Speaking of Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
