NOW you tell us Scott. :). Quite true and a good point that everyone should know. In Windows 95, you have the registry backups of SYSTEM.DA0 and USER.DA0, both contained in the WINDOWS directory, and just require renaming to SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT. In Windows 98, SE, and ME; you have actually five backups, contained in the "hidden" directory, SYSBCKUP; they are labeled: RB001 - RB005.CAB. If you do a "Find" or "Search" on these files, you can double click on one of them and see they contain: SYSTEM.DAT, USER.DAT, SYSTEM.INI and WIN.INI; assuming you have WINZIP loaded, you can then extract. (Be aware of the file dates, don't use one too old) Windows 2k has LKGC, Last Known Good Configuration.

The "Save" is real-time. So, any changes are immediately permanent, and cannot be undone unless you have a backup of the registry. --Scott.
