Hey guy, Great to talk to you again! Love it here! Ok, so this question is more for personal learning and understanding than anything else. I love to fix computers with out having to resort to system restore or reinstall, largely for the experience and understanding of programing and os structure. A lot of times things happen to corrupt main registry entries and the usual answer is to restore the system...but what if I couldn't. Is there a way to fix core registry entries (I.e. driver related, desktop, interface...things that should fundamentally be similar between computers and theoretically fixable). I've investigate programs that claim to "fix" the registry but they usually just clean it rather than actually fix corrupted or missing entries. I realize this might be a very complicated answer or one most don't care to get into. That's o.k. Give me what you can. Be as short as you like. I just want to learn. Thanks in advance for the answers and replies. by the way, would this be answered with this thread?
