Maybe I dont know enough about servers? My question is this, I see this thread and cannot figure out if I am reading this correctly. Just the part about "Take backup of registry, REMOVE "dsrestore"" Does this mean to copy this registry entry and actually delete the word "dsrestore" from the list of items?

This is the statement to correct the problems I am having....

Go to Registry location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA\Notification Packages

Take backup of registry, REMOVE "dsrestore"

Reset the DSRM password in the normal mode

Hello,

A bit tough to understand indeed.  "Take a backup of registry", in regedit, go to File > Export.  Give it a file name and destination, and then at the bottom under Export Range, select All.  Then click Save.

Double-click on Notification Packages, in the multi string window, if dsrestore is listed, take it out of there.

"Reset DSRM password in normal mode", restart the computer normally instead of safe mode.

This link should cover the rest:
