    65% here, a few I didn't know, others I skimmed the question and answered stupidly

    Well i am not happy with Question 8!

    Question 8: Windows 95 books buzzed about making changes to the Windows Registry. From an administrative perspective, which of the following will assist you to enforce registry settings, without permanently altering or "tattooing" the registry?

    They have both Group Policy and System Policy Editor listed. Since System Policy Editor was used to do what Group Policy does on Windows 95/98/NT 4 and they talk about Windows 95 in the opening statement which is pre group policy what would you think the correct answer would be!!!

    70% - Did better on the older type questions. On the new stuff I don't give a rat's bum, it all bores the pants of me now quite frankly.

    Need to complain about this one,
    "Bundled with (or downloadable for) every Windows OS since Windows 98, this tool can modify startup programs, files, and services, as well as the boot process. You won't find it in the Programs menu, however. What is the name of this menu-absent tool? "

    from what I remember, Windows 2000 didn't include msconfig

    But if you'd ever used Policy Editor you'd remember that it effectively 'tattooed' the registry since, when you removed a policy template the settings stayed unchanged (in GPs when you remove a policy the settings are also removed). To remove the settings in Policy Editor you had to first re-apply the template, then change the settings back, then remove the template again. It was a right PITA, especially if you couldn't find the right template to re-apply (e.g. a custom template - aaaggghhhh!!!!).

    I got 14 right, 70%

    Was the older ones that I didn't know along with the question about SBS 2008 - haven't looked at any 2008 platforms yet.

    To be fair I don't think Q4 has any relevance but I should have got Q20!
