I am quite computer literate, but I don't know what I don't know...
Windows Explorer kept freezing over several days when trying to display a directory, save a file, and other tasks. Several hours of research followed. MalWareBytes (2x); SpyBot (3x); CCleaner (3+ attempts); "sfc /scannow" used multiple times in regular and Safe Mode. Nothing worked. Not even Last Known Good Config or System Restore (4+ attempts). I couldn't even load the sfc log because Explorer kept locking up. Next step was to repair Windows. I did a Custom install - to keep my old files.
I want to copy the old registry file and overwrite the new registry file with it. (No, I didn't realize I needed it until I was done with the install...) This will keep me from having to re-install all of my programs.
Where will I find the file that I need? Or is there another way?
Thanks, in advance, for your time!
