mrmojo, If you mean a registry restore to a previous date but not back to the time you bought your PC do this. Restart in MS-DOS. At the C:\Windows prompt type CD.. press Enter. This will take you to a C:\> prompt. At this, type Scanreg/Restore and press Enter. You should get a few dates to restore to. If you want to restore back to the day you purchased get back and we'll get that done. This assumes you have Win98fe or later...Mike

If it is indeed the registry that you want to restore, remeber this ...

Software installs depending on the software being installed does change settings/entries in the registry, restoring the registry back to day 1 (when you bought the computer) could cause problems with software installed since that date. It is sometimes difficult to say what each piece of software that was installed changed what in the registry. So it would be helpfull if we knew exactly what problems that you may be experiencing and the reasons you want to rsstore what you refer to as another time. We can likely help you better if we know what you are trying to accomplish here.

mrmojo, dkerr is right because a full original registry restore will likely remove or alter all you have done to your PC. A restore to the day, week, month before is what I would try first but as dkerr requests there may be other ways to help. Also please include OS...Mike
