That's the idea. As mentioned by gregrocker above, you don't need to mess with any of those settings.

If you insist on doing it, you should at least have system restore enabled, but the best option for

anyone who uses a computer is to have and keep a regular imaging schedule so when things go

wrong, as they have for you, you can easily get right back to where you were.

Glad you figured it out, I still recommend an imaging routine, especially since you like to play around with things,
