he seems to have cause some damage

rushin1nd...I think handyjay is already quite painfully aware if this. If you have nothing constructive to add to a thread, please refrain from posting to it.

Download the attached zip file and save it to your desktop. Right click on it and Choose "Extract All"...extrack this file to your desktop. You should then have a file named exe_fix.reg on the desktop along with the original zip file.

Are you able to complete this?

Who didn't know that would happen.

Open Registry Editor. Click on "File" on the toolbar and choose "Import". Browse to the exe_fix.reg file on the desktop and see if it will merge that way.
