Hi,

I created a .reg file for each of the 5 main classes in Windows 2003
Standard Edition because I had to make some changes directly to the registry.
Of course I just made the registry unusefull at playing with it.

Now when I try to restore those files, a message appear:

Cannot Import [path +.reg File]. Error accessing the registry

The biggest file is LOCAL_MACHINE, about 33MB.

Although most of the keys were inserted correctly into the registry, it just
does not finish inserting the keys when the message appears. In this moment I
cannot load IIS and Symantec Antivirus, even when I reinstall them.

I did not make a backup of the system, security, default, sam and software
files.

How could I restore the whole .reg file ?, there's gotta be a way.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance
