Recover registry settings from a dead Windows installation (v4 or earlier)
This is for Advanced Users Only!
Note that this procedure is only suggested as a last resort. You should be backing up your Windows PCs regularly, including the registrysettings. Check that your Backup procedure saves the Windows registry!
This article applies if you had a VPOP3 installation on a Windows NT based computer (Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 etc, not Windows 95/98/ME) and that computer has died. The disk must still be accessible, but you can't start Windows.
