Starting a new thread because my focus now shifts to Registry backup now
that the initial problem is over.
What is the purpose of the "C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\"
folder? In my case, it contains 68 folders using 75 MB of storage. Some of
the folders seem to contain complete applications with DLLs, executables,
and data. I don't recognize many of the entries.
What is the consensus on using the ERU.EXE program? Is it safe to use?
I'd like to see the Registry backup batch files. I don't tinker much with
Thanks for all the help from so many concerned individuals.

I thought you'd find more comfortable to make your backups from NoteTab
than from a DOS window, so here's a Clip to do it in the meantime (until I
have the time to convert my program for general use). I uploaded the
package in case someone else might be interested:
To restore the registry, use one of the included batch files from DOS (real
DOS). Instructions are included with the files.
I use to keep a note on my desk, detailing when each backup was made and
the circumstances that originated it. So in case Windows won't boot I can
always tell which backup is best to restore.
