Windows 7 Home edition (64 bit)

I am new on this forum and I used this registry tweak today. I made the Full registry thing to roll back whenever i want but now after using this tweak i dont see the visual effects of minimising/maximising. This is the reason i hv decided to roll back.
The minimising/maximising is too fast and does not show the true visual effects which it showed before.
But when i click on the backup registry "Full registry", after clicking yes etc, an error comes

"Cannot import C:\Users\Zeeshan\Desktop\Full registry.reg: Error accessing the registry."

I really need help..

thanks for your assistance..
actually, i wanted to roll back to my default registry which i did so by restoring the system-backup.

There was some difference in the visual effects.. I don't know but maybe it was just normal :P
Anyhow, I've rolled it back.

Windows 7 Professsional
boot defrag

how long does the boot defrag take, how do I know when it's done and it's safe to shut down? I did not see much change in CPU activity.

The CPU went to zero for a while so I figured it was done and I shut down.

Arrrgh, now my computer won't shut down after I start up, and nothing is working, it won't let me open anything either. What is wrong? how do I undo the change?

update: after I started in safe mode, and then restarted normally, everything is back to how it was.

update 2: it seems from looking at some other pages that there is not supposed to be a space between the comma and "ProcessIdleTasks"? is that right?

Hi X201t,

Welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry but I haven't got the slightest clue as to what you are talking about.

Hi RickyMan,

It doesn't matter if the OS is on D or Whatever. It still is C to Windows. Nevertheless registry key commands are OS related and don't have a directory route. They will change the OS commands because the request isn't saying change something from a directory it's saying change something to the OS commands.

Taskbar icons are not combined
I hope this is a dumb question; I have searched (and searched) and can't find my issue anywhere. :p Playing with MacOS recently I like its LaunchPad, with the "LED" illumination showing that a Launchpad program is active. I've since noticed on my W7 PCs that Windows Taskbar shows two instances...
Do you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not combined?
Hi, i want to know and why if you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not? One good thing about keeping them combined is that it makes it look neater and in a way gives you more room to add to the taskbar and perhaps the only downfall is the buttons are not labeled.
