  1. Small correction but if you're trying to say hierarchy it is pronounced hi-er-are-key.

  2. I am a slightly above average computer user in my opinion. But I must say, that after watching you click apply then okay, and additionally pronouncing hierarchy incorrectly that it became increasingly difficult to watch this video. The difference between apply and okay in those settings dialogues are that okay applies and closes whereas apply only applies. So while it's a simple extra step that may take only a second to complete. It is as painful as watching someone go through the mouse menu to copy and paste something when control+c and control+v are such common knowledge. As for pronunciations; I find myself having the same problem caused by being a bookworm, so perhaps double check larger words and verify all the letters and syllables you see in there, or Google them. Google has a pronunciation button if you just google one word.

  3. Hi, nice presentation. A couple of questions, please:
    1)Does a restore point repair possible damages to the registry? i.e., say I want to change the registry. Can I create a restore point right before changing the registry and if I do something wrong, it will be restored?
    2) Is the registry loaded during the POST, or somehow afterwards?
