Copy The Files Back!
As I mentioned last month, this is the method I count on the most with my own computer. Of course, I use the other methods as well to add redundancy and give me peace of mind.
If one method doesn't work, another will.
Remember also, that anytime I include the directory or folder 'WINDOWS', I'm referring to the folder that contains the Windows files. On a different computer it may be 'WIN95', or 'WIN98', etc... and you need to replace 'WINDOWS' with the name of the folder on your computer that contains the Windows files.
For example, if your Windows files are located in the folder 'WIN98', and I say to type:
ATTRIB -S -H -R C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.DA0
The same goes for any other file that you may have named differently. (Yes, I know I mentioned this before.)
This restore method, as I explain it, takes a few things for granted:
1. You followed instructions last month.
2. The folder you copied the Registry to is a sub-folder, or sub-directory in the WINDOWS folder, called SAFEREG.
3. When you copied the two files to SAFEREG, you removed the attributes as instructed.
4. You are at the DOS prompt. This is
how simple it is:
At the DOS prompt type:
ATTRIB -S -H -R SYSTEM.DAT
ATTRIB +S +H +R SYSTEM.DAT
CTRL + ALT + DEL (Reboot)
And that's it! ..............
