I have two copies of my XP operating system on my hard disk, basically one for work and one for play. They are on separate partitions using Partitionmagic. Recently I installed and later uninstalled software to one partition. I later discovered registry entries for this on the other partition. Is there only one shared registry or can each read the other? I also deleted an internet connection from one and found it gone on the other (bad news as I made a hash of it!) I always assumed that separate partitions were blind to each other and if I ever got a virus I would still have a clean copy. Would an infection be duplicated? (I turned off system restore as I know it uses a lot of space) I would be grateful if someone could put me right on how this works. Cheers Andrew
