Weird Vista Registry Issue

I’m attempting to track down a very strange Windows Vista registry issue that hit me on two machines, that I’ve found mentioned in random various forum posts across the Internet, that has no known cause or solution, and which I cannot seem to reproduce in a VM though I’ve seen it happen on 2 machines across 4 Vista installs.  I’m hoping everyone that happens to read this post will take a few minutes to check the following and contact me or leave a comment: Run regedit.exe, everybody’s favorite Registry Editor.

Now Running Community Server 2007.1

After a moderate amount of pain, I have finally updated the site to Community Server 2007.1.  I think everything is working.  I’m likely wrong.  Therefore if anyone sees anything that is not working, broken layouts, broken links, etc. PLEASE contact me and let me know so that I may correct it. One noteworthy item:  The new official URL for the blog is www.brianpeek.com/blog .  The main site will 301 redirect you here.  The old /blogs address should also 301 you here as well.  If you’re seeing any weirdness there, again, please contact me. Thanks!
