Windows ME is not compatible with all programs before installing any software on this platform you you should make sure that it is compatilble PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND UPGRADE TO WINDOWS XP WHEN POSSIBLE.

windows ME does have a rollback feature however:

Scanreg /Fix Repairs the corrupted registry if the problem is inherent to the registry itself, this might work if the problem is that you want to undo a successful change to the registry, then use the Restore option instead.

* you will need the ME CD

ALSO MAKE SURE THAT YOURE NOT USING THE VERSION THAT MEANT FOR ANOTHER OS
