Note: It may be necessary to run each VBScript while logged into that User's Account.  If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal.  These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.


Some fixes will require a reboot.


Some of the .reg files were exported from my registry, modified and tested on my system.
Some are from other users.  All credit due.
