Windows 7: Corrupted registry

Hi YupYup,

Not sure why you say "keep" referring to.

Just copying from Windows\System32\config\RegBack to Windows\System32\config.

Looks like this on Vista:

And on 7100:

Usually make my own backups of the Hives periodically as well.

"keep" because you mentioned that here. Your pic just looks different than vista because you have "hide protected operating system files" checked, and i would suspect the .old file are not present yet because you recently installed. As far as the commands go they are still the same though and from a command prompt you would see all the files anyway.

Hi,

I have protected o/s files showing.

Curious they show as 0kb in 7 regbak.

Even if you copy them elsewhere.

I have had 7000x86 installed for quite a while on another partition - no .old there either:

How come your RegBack\Software is 36mb or so and mine is 0kb on 7100?

That is the mystery, it should not be 0 kb on any system.
