Thanks Bill...ran through a dry run and it looks fairly straight forward.
Two additional questions if I can:
1) How can I verify that the current registry file was indeed replaced by the backed up (backup.reg) file ? Is there a date or something I can check on after the replace opperation...and will the regedit /s command also automatically rename the backup file when in replaces the curretn windows reg file ?
2) Per my originall post...I also am unable to do a restore point operation as the jpg in initial question indicates. Can I use the same cmd command via the install dvd to try that process also ?
