    I was wondering how you go about restoring the registry from one that was exported via regedit. I'm asking because when I tried to merge one on my Win2000 machine I got the message that I was tampering with my product and that was not allowed.
    Then it would no longer boot. Repairing the install didn't work either. Had to reinstall OS all togrther.
    Now I'm having some problems on my XP machine. Hard drive write times really slow. Yes, I've tried remove reinstall drivers. Checked acustic management, even reset cmos(witch worked before.) I have a back up registry file of when things were good but, don't want the same problems as before with 2000.:confused:
    Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks Anti

    You aren't exactly clear on what you are saying...

    If you didn't do a fresh install do one. Otherwise if you did it's your hardware :hammer:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Sorry if that was unclear. I wanted to know the proper way to restore the registry. From a back up that was made using regedit.:o

    It's a clean install of XP home ver. Only about 3 months old.

    My troubles with win2000 are over. At the moment. I was just letting every one know my reason for concern. At this point I'm not up to reinstalling everything. I'm sure MS will start to wonder why I have to activate my copy so many times.

    Thanks any way guy's. I was hoping I was missing something but, it seems my troubles are hardware related. I know that you just double click it. Thought I might ask to make sure. It didn't solve my problems so, I'm off to the hardware section to figure this out.:shrug:
