[triadtechtalk] Re: LayOut.Zip HELP

Except for doze 95, in all other versions of windoze I use Total Uninstall to 
install any and all programs that I add. Always.

It has never failed me when restoring to its original configuration a PC in 
which I've used it for an installation. It's not going to help you now, but 
I've mentioned Total Uninstall many times.

Good luck,
Armando

Subject: [triadtechtalk] LayOut.Zip HELP

Excitement leads to frustration!!!

As you will recall I was ecstatic about Chuck's LayOut.zip DeskTop 
restoration tool.
But after doing my maintenance routine the right click option disappeared.
I tried the Icon Restore program that I had mentioned since it looked 
easier to install with the .exe extension.

It did not give the right click options. So after trying everything I 
know, I took the following steps to uninstall and reinstall all traces 
of both programs. But still could not get the program to work.

This was one of the few experience with  installing  a program like this 
so I would sure like to learn more about this process of installing and 
uninstalling this type of program.

1. Backed up Registry
2. Searched for Layout.dll
3. 
Found>HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\IconLayout>and 
deleted it.
4. 
Found>HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\IconLayout
 
    and deleted it.
5. Researched for LayOut.Dll and found it in System and System32.
6. Rebooted to see if the program would work.
7. Still is not working.
8. Deleted LayOut.Dll from System and System32.
9. Again searched for: Layout.dll and they do not show up except in my 
DownLaod file.
10.  Again searched for: IconLayOut.Nothing found
11. I deleted the Layout.reg, and Layout.dll from: 
C:\UnZipHoldingFile\LayOutFolder
12.  I then unziped LayOut.zip contents to C:\UnZipHoldingFile\LayOutFolder
13. and reinstall the 2 files as I first did by copying LayOut.dll to 
System and System32 and then clicked     on LayOut.reg
15. Went to desktop and right clicked and still don't have the "save 
icon settings listed" option.
15. Rebooted and checked again.
16. Still not working!!!!

Can anyone see what I have done wrong and how I can restore the great 
LayOut.zip DeskTop restoration tool.

BRIAN
