I tried to follow Yan's procedures but must be doing something wrong. i save the file on the desktop but when I double click on it , it just opens up the file with notepad, and doesn't ask if i want to replace the existing reg.

I also looked at derekimo recommendations above post 6 but not sure exactly what to do I'm not a big computer wizard, need to take a closer look.

When you create the .reg file you must include also include the header "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00"

When you save your file make sure you select "All file types" and not "Text files".

My first link is just a .reg file that you download and merge by just right clicking, then merge.

The second one has two .reg files, you want the restore folder one, same as above, just right click and merge,

Brightblessing....sorry to say I'm not sure how to include the header information "win...reg...etc" is that just the first line of text in the notepad document? I did that and saved as all files same results.
Thanx for your help.
