    no idea, but here's a thought. Why don't you just export the registry before making any changes that could be dodgy?

    Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore - Then Create Restore Point.

    Once you are there, the process for restoring will be clear to you.

    exporting the registry is a good idea, you can do that off the box, too.

    If you are going to start your tweaking, you're going to be using the system restore to create restore points, or you are going to be exporting your registry allot

    easiest thing for the system restore is to create a shorcut to the restore button on your desktop;

    use this target;

    %SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe


    huge time saver

    If you try to import the whole registry by double clicking an oridnary full reg file you won't be able to.

    Do a search for an app called ERUNT to bakup and restore registry.
