Help Added PGPlspRollback from XP into Windows 7

Please help me as I wanted to get registry from XP to help keep Outlook Express 6 message rules. Everything from XP is on backup hard drive, now in own folder on new computer. I added PGPlspRollback registry into Windows 7 registry new computer by accident. Will this cause my Windows 7 to stop working as I am not that familiar in PGP. I can see what was added to the registry. Can I remove this entries? I have RegistryBooster 2 but I have restart my system and just not sure what will happen.

It has been a nightmare going from XP to windows 7 home edition 64bit. Please advise what course of action I need to take.

Thank you for your help.

I would remove the key from the registry, considering it is for a software app that no longer exists in Windows 7. I would also stop using RegistryBooster as well. If you want a cleaner, get CCleaner.

As for the final comments, what nightmares have you encountered? Windows 7 is the easiest version of Windows to setup and configure...by far.

I ran the RegistryBooster before I saw that someone replied. Then I restarted computer with no problems. I do have CCleaner but have to re-install.

As far as being easy... not for me. XP backup utility is what I used to back up my computer but it was never designed to restore ASR in any windows platform. I had to find a fix on Microsoft to recover my backup. Many of my programs were not compatible with Windows 7. I used the compatibility mode under properties for some of them and it worked. Did not know why I am always getting prompt to do anything (UAC). I did not have that before and it is very annoying. All passwords and key items locked up in backup and in email that I been trying to restore. My internet provider would not give me the pop, smpt or port numbers for my 8 mailboxes. He was going to send me an email.... reminded him that I couldn't receive any. He sent me an article on web on how to setup email as they no longer support Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail. I had to reset the password on all mailhoxes and the tech person was about to quit when I told him no not until everything is reset and checked. So my old email is in Windows Live but just for storage. Using Thunderbird and still have to set up filters/rules on the email boxes.

I use Google a lot to find out where did they hide or renamed tools that I used in XP. This was the worst change over I ever done. Probably because of the backup that was never designed to work in restoring. And the restore fix did some strange things.

Thank you again for your reply.

The XP Backup Utility was junk, and that's why no one really used it, and why so many better, third part alternatives existed. Windows 7 greatly improves the usability of the built-in backup.

That's why you should have run the Upgrade Advisor first. The vast majority of programs are compatible, but at least you would have known before hand. Just out of curiosity, what were your apps that weren't compatible?

I'm not sure why UAC is surprising you, as it was implemented in Vista, but not very well. You can easily change the level or disable UAC if it annoys you.

Who's your ISP? If they don't support the most common basic e-mail apps, they wouldn't get another dollar from me. In addition to this, there's a very good reason why most people don't use their e-mail accounts from their ISPs anymore. Why be tied to your provider?

Not to sound like I'm piling on, but a lot of your "problems" either could have been easily avoided, or aren't really issues at all...at the very least, aren't Windows 7's issues.
Mainly what I'm getting at is, before making the leap to a new OS (new enough that you're skipping one), always do your research and ask questions ahead of time. The vast majority of people, like me, will tell you that going back to XP is a painful experience once we've settled in with Windows 7.
