This has happened before over the years, but I've used Gateway Goback to eventually fix it. That's not happening now.
When I boot into DOS and do a scanreg/restore, I'm showing 4 registry backups. 2 are from 8/6/07 and 8/7/07 -- these don't do any good, because my problem happened on 8/5. The only other 2 backups are from 2000, which is apparently what is being restored.
I need to find a backup from the 1st week of August, but I don't know what else to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
