For a few days now I have been intermittently getting the following message either on signing in or out of my account on my PC.

"Windows-Registry Recovery
One of the files containing the system's Registry Data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful. OK."


I googled this and came up with a cure which is to open a new account transfer all the files etc from the old account to the new account and then delete the old account. I know how to open a new account but how do I transfer all my files and folders to it?. Thanks very much for any help offered.

Thank you very much douglas martin that is just what I need. One question though, what is the difference between a Domain computer and a Workgroup computer. I have an ordinary desktop PC which I share with my daughter the both of us having Admin status.

Your PC will be setup as a Workgroup computer.
Domain PCs are computer (typically) in a business environment where security settings and accounts are managed centrally.
