RE: How to restore to previous date?

If you want to go back to a previous registry date:
Enter Safe mode by shutting down computer and tapping F8 when starting. (may take a few times, sometimes contrary entering safe mode). Choose Command prompt only and at the C: prompt type
scanreg /restore (that's a space after scanreg) Choose restore and that will bring up a list of dates. Think this is what you want.
And as an aside, don't be suprised when you go back to normal mode your icons are mover around, just drag them back where they were.
Good luck
Will also e-mail this to you
