Hi Bob,

  Oh, ok.  I've done that before with GoBack from Norton. I don't
remember exactly when the problem started, so I probably won't do it now
because I might lose some other stuff. I should have done it from the
get go, but didn't think of it at the time.

Hi Lisa,
WinMe has a restore function that will just change your computer back to
what it was like for a certain date that you pick. It won't put the
computer all the way back. Start button, programs, accessories, system
tools, restore.  Pick a date before you had the problem and maybe it
will fix you up.  Again, this is not the same as restoring your computer
to it's original stuff.

I don't know about regvac, it may help out too.
