Network Configuration Restore
I have a Vista Business OS and I have made many changes to the network and
security settings. I have lost track of what was done. Is there any way I can
restore those settings back to default without having to reinstall the entire
OS? My restore points do not go back as far as I need them to and I need to
restore the settings. Ideally I would like ALL System defaults restored but
do not want to reformat the system.
Any suggestions?

Re: Network Configuration Restore
Hi Trevor,

As far as System Restore goes, for best results it should be used as soon as
possible after a problem is detected. Restoring a system back more that a
week or so can often cause more problems that it solves. So whenever changes
are made create a restore point prier to the changes. And after the changes
are made test the network for functionality. If a problem arises that you
cannot fix, use the restore point created just before the changes. And try
again.

For a longer term solution, imaging software is a very good choice. Here are
two examples.

BootIt Next Generation & Image for Windows
