system restore

You are the expert and I am the learner and I defer to your expertise.
Thank you for both the correction and the additonal information.
Have you heard of the new beta registry backup for Win 7 similiar to what ERUNT was for pc up until XP?
I do not know what I am allowed to write in the forum so if interested please tell me what to write.
It is at another site and i have been in touch with the owner who is beta testing it now. Some of my techy friends across the pond are quite impressed as are some techs in a few other forums..

Why are you looking outside windows 7 to backup a complete registry?
Use the capabilities of your OS to backup and restore your registry

registry backup

I do not think system restore is always reliable. I do have Acronis which takes a while.
I read a lot about ERUNT and most of my young techy friends have it in their toolbox. They tell me how it functions outside of windows, backups when you bootup for a set # of times etc.
I was so interested I began chatting with some forum mods. Finally I found one who is developing a program like ERUNT but where it left off with XP.
Britec has a great video/tutorial abour ERUNT and the work arounds for Win 7 x64. It is not as ez as running as admin and I don't want to turn off the UAC.
When this owner of a site I like{I do not want to violoate rules so am reluctant to mention sites or names unless told I can do so] completes his beta version and makes his video/tutorial, I will study it and see if I want to try it.
All of my friends across the pond who are very techy are interested in it and are providing both good and correctional comments to him. it won't be long before it is released.
Soooooooooo, to answer your question, I am elderly/ill and never had lessons. I picked up a pc only a few years ago but am doing ok. I used to be outdoors and active but now the pc and tv are my friends. I learned what I know in forums. I like to try things but don't like to format and reinstall.
I have always had an aptitude for puttering so even after 7 decades I like to dabble.
This type of program may allow me to correct errors I make without too much damage.
Have a good one and wheever said old timers are long winded!

Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1

I, personally, have never heard of Erunt.I don't need it since my system automatically makes system images and system restore points. Plus, I don't install and uninstall a bunch of programs.

Registry is a dangerous place to play with.
Take your precautions

I agree with using the OS itself, backing up registry main keys is so simple, fire up regedit, right click for example HKEY_CURRENT_USER choose export and browse to a safe location, voila times about 5 and you backed it up.
To restore any key right click and merge.

Why write code to do what a few clicks can safely and quickly accomplish ?

Run ERUNT Autobackup as a task in Windows 7

There has been some discussion of whether restoring the backup actually works in Seven. I personally have system images, and have never attempted to restore a ERUNT backup. A Guy

More likely fans of ERUNT use ERUNT.
A system image is just plain better than a registry backup.
