    Hi every one,



    I recently got a bad virus and had to back up my entire C Drive to a removable drive.

    I then reset my vista laptop to factory settings. The virus made it so that I couldn't actually use windows so I did all that by hitting f8 during boot up and it gave me the option of backing every thing up.





    Can any one please tell me what I have to copy and where from my back up drive to my new fresh intall of vista to get my windows mail back to what it was before the wipe?



    I would love rules, folders, mails, every thing back to how it was. is that posible??





    would love any help posible

    Cheers every one.



    J



    sorry for the spelling.

    ok i have figured out how to restor all the messages by copying

    the %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\ folder to my new computer.



    , but ......



    does anyone know how to get this regestry key

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail



    of my backed up hard drive and put it into my new fresh computer?

    this reg key contains nearly all the settings and rules for Windows Mail. so I really need it.



    Any help would be much apreciated.



    Cheers every one.
