    Misspent youth (know-it-all-itus) came back and bit me this morning. :(

    Well in my folding frenzy to get our server crunching I used Billy's
    post and double-clicked the userID to change the registry of our server to be as per ID of my workstation. (stupid I know)

    No reprocussion untill this morning.
    Following powercut and server UPS startup warning message apears saying identical ID found (or something like that)
    My director also ask it I could find out why the no longer has remote access from this home PC :eek:

    If you delete the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PandeGroup\[email protected]" will my problems go away or do I need to do a shadowcopy rollback?

    Yeah. Shut down folding and delete the key. It'll fetch a new ID.

    No, but that isn't a problem.

    Done, don't think I'll be folding on the server again - expect a 200+ppd drop from last four days :(

    Edit: Would the .reg file have changed anything else?
