Chris - that won't do anything at all for the 744, just the NG.

If these files are missing, any attempt to uninstall will fail, and you may have trouble reinstalling them. That being said, a Window Reinstall should be a last option, and I personally wouldn't do it for a problem with a single program unless it affects the rest of my system. If you are thinking about doing it anyway, try this first. Use your system restore utility to restore your system to a point prior to you installing the 744(f). That should restore the registry to what it was prior to your installation. It has gotten me out of jams before. Worse case if that don't work is reinstall WINXP like you said. (I assume you are using Win XP correct?)

For security purposes, whenever I install windows i disable system restore. This is to prevent viruses from being restored or backing themselves up. A lot of viruses out there use system restore to their advantage.I appreciate the advice though, Tom. Fortunately I have Windows partitioned on it's own partition, so I can sweep and clear anytime I like. In fact, I religiously reinstal windows once every 6 months just to keep all the clutter from building up on my system.Really, reinstalling windows is not that much of a nightmare for me, as i have SP2, the latest .net framework, DirectX, etc all bundled into a mass install on DVD (thanks to Microsoft releasing a utility instruction that enables such a merge). A total reinstall of windows takes about 30 mins for me.Now FS . . . THAT's where i am trying to avoid a reinstall. 200GB partition for FS and it usually takes me a few days of reinstalls to rebuild it LOL. Mainly due to most of the software ihave needing to connect to the internet and authorize, etc. (thanks, pirates, you jerks). I am just thinking there has got to be some entry somewhere i missed that is telling this installer that the 747 is still on ym system when it is not, so I can avoid a total FS reinstall until after college semester ends.

Reformating your PC every 6 moths offers no advantage to keeping it free of clutter......
