I highly advise keeping a copy of the files, just in case, not sure of the worst tho. it can go pretty bad apparently.

Bad like in, let's say, placing the original files back in win save mode and everything is back to normal / restored !

or bad like in having to format to whole damn thing <<

hope to hear from you or someone who already had that experience !

Not exactly sure of the consequences of not keeping a copy of the system files, altho if it all suddenly goes pair shaped, boot from your Windows 7 DVD into Startup repair, go to the CMD, and type SFC /scannow.

That will scan for and replace any modified, non-original system files back to the originals.

Hope this helps.
