IOW, hypothetically, if enough stuff was deleted from the registry that the pc wouldn't be bootable, it would boot anyways, from a backup? So long as Chernobyl or whatever doesn't erase the whole thing, I'd be alright then? BTW, I've got another question from an earlier topic. My Notebook function is dead from a wrong uninstall of metapad. Goofed it up so totally, nothing anyone has suggested helps. It's really dead. I had to reassociate all notepad files with Wordpad. Would it help if I reinstalled Win98? I could then easily follow that with the DirectX8 and all the Win98 updates I've downloaded and saved in a separate folder.
