I suggest getting a program that will create a 'drive image'. The program will store EVERYTHING on your harddrive, into one file. Then all you have to do is rerun that file, and you have all your settings back. It's kinda like an ISO.
A good program that does that is Drive Image :)

Drive Image creates an exact copy of what he's got now (an "image"). So if he's in a postion where he needs to reformat now, then he'll have exactly the same problem if he restores an image.

If you are going to reformat and reinstall, then you are going to start with a brand new registsry. So yes, of course you'll have to recreate all your tweaks.

Hahaha Henyman that picture of "you" looks funny! Well I have never created a CD image before so this section was not a waste of time as one of the posters said. Helpful people. :)

Please tell me you are smarter than this. If he is formatting because he is having problems then a ghost image does him no good. If he loads that ghost image then he has the same problems as he would before the format.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
