I've approved this.

This document is, unfortunately, not correct:

> Repair the damage with REGEDT32 (not REGEDIT):

Don't ever do that. You should only modify values on CurrentControlSet, not one
of the physical control sets, otherwise a) the changes may not take effect, or
b) you might break your fallback control set.

The NT4 and Wind2k REGEDT32 don't do anything with a right click. You must
"Edit.Add value..." and set Data Type to REG_EXPAND_SZ.

> 4. Copy date from PATH.old into PATH.
