Oh, B&GG%R!

I have to admit that this is where I'm going to have to try and pass the buck to someone else - hopefully they'll pick up the baton and run with it fairly quickly.

Back soon (after putting a message in a bottle...)....

Hopefully you'll be descended upon by a number of people
I'll keep an eye out and do some research as well.

Hello elimak and welcome to the forums

Just had a read through this thread and thought of something that might be worth trying:

Run this command:

REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\VSS\Diag" /s > %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\tom982.txt

This will generate a file on your Desktop, tom982.txt, can you attach this to you next post please?

That's likely to overflow the buffers, Tom
It may be a good idea to lose the recursion, or output to a file?

Stupid mistake #2

I need the recursion because I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking for, lol.

That's enough mistakes for one day, time for bed.

Actually - I made the mistake
I was looking at the same Key in a default Vista x64 - and it's a LOT bigger there than it is in a default Win7 - in 7 I could get the full recursion for both ..001 and Current...

However, in my live system the key is positively huge.

Mine is ~48,000 characters, so it makes sense at my end!

Hi Jacee,
I got my copy of windows with my sony laptop when I bought it, 8 month ago.

Hi Tom982,

Shall I run your command

"REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\VSS\Diag" /s > %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\tom982.txt"

or is it not recommended?

Thank you for your help guys.
