I messed with the Vista Professional SP2 registry editor, trying to tweak my system for faster start up.
I downloaded Black Vipers Safe Reg File. I started hearing beeps that tell me I have errors.
I went to his site to find out how to get it back to Vista Default
and his advice was to download the Default reg file and right click it and then click merge.
I still keep hearing beeps that tell me I have errors.

Is there any way to Restore the Registry to Default Settings, without using System Restore, as my last Restore contains the same errors.
Is there a file on Microsoft.com that has the Default Registry that I could download?

I have attached the HiJackThis.txt file, as well as a snapshot of my computer info screen.

Any help would be truly appreciated. And yes, I've learned my lesson, will not use Registry Cleaners ever again! :-(

If you have the installation disk for your operating system you can do a repair installation. This won't affect your data, photos, or other non-Window applications.

A good tutorial can be found here.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

No, I don't, it came pre-loaded by Dell with OEM.
