Display MMC Error Message

    While using Diskeeper, I got the error message:
    "MMC has detected an error in a snap-in. It is recommended that you shut
    down and restart MMC." It gave me 3 options and I chose
    Continue running and always ignore errors with this snap-in, regardless of
    user or session.

    However, I would like to be able to see this message again because I plan to
    do more troubleshooting and I want to see if it works. How do I reverse my
    action--is there a place in the MMC I would go or is there a registry key I
    need to edit? I'm running Windows XP SP3.

    If I knew where I was I'd be there now.

    Either there, or in an ini or cfg file in its Pgm Files or its Application
    Data directory, but I'd bet it's in the registry. You could try hunting
    for it (and then the appropriate setting) in the registry using regedit.

    Or, if you've been using ERUNT, use a previous backup to restore the
    registry to before you made that change.

    I don't have ERUNT but you gave me the idea to try using System Restore,
    which worked. But thanks for the tip on ERUNT, I just downloaded it.

    And that is a fine example of why you should not disable System Restore,
    it can be a very useful tool at times. Erunt is a fine tool but System
    Restore does more than just the registry.
