I am in the process of setting up my wife's new HP computer with W7. We both have been using XP for some years with no problems. At this early stage I am the only one playing with the W7. Files have been
transferred (99%) successfully using WET. Removing arrows on desktop shortcuts is easy on XP but it looks like I need the 12-year-old public school dropout who programed how to do it in W7. What a convoluted way to do a simple job. At this early stage on the learning curve it would seem that W7 is not much more than a make-work project for someone at MS. Is there not an easy way?
Quote from Allan above "You can also use ERUNT - it's been around forever, it's free, it works with all versions of Windows from XP through W7 and it's the best registry backup utility available I heartily agree but it does not work on W7 64 bit version. Has anyone had total success with ERUNT 64?
