Anyway, to the point. I only reinstalled the XP windows directory but left my HD untouched. So I still got all my data, programs, etc., without having to reinstall everything over the next couple of days. Now, the problem is that I need to replace the newly created Local Settings with my old one from before, which should restore my computer to the way I had it before it went haywire, right? So, do I simply delete the new folders and leave only my old one and the computer will automatically recognize it as the default settings? Or is there some kind of procedure I must undertake to do this?
A little note...does anyone know of any major bug issue with eVGA 680i motherboard when it goes into Stand By mode? Or even Western Digital Caviar HD? Somebody should report this, it's a massive bug.
Looking in my Document and Settings folder, it looks like I have a duplicate of each folder in there (All Users, the hidden Default User, and my personal settings folder).
Basically, I just want the computer to refer to my old settings as the default (that would be without the .WINDOWS that appears at the end of each duplicated folder name that is now treated as the default). Then I want to get rid of the new folders. Please don't tell me I'm S.O.L., it would ruin an already bad day for me.
Just realized a potential solution. Could I just simply copy the data in my old folders to the new ones? Could it be that easy? Or would that essentially cause Armageddeon on my computer?
