Recovering Files and Registry in Windows 7 Ultimate.

Hello,

I want to recover my registry and files in Windows 7 Ultimate. I see many things like restoring data, creating image and many other methods in this Windows but are not helpful.

I want if I install a software which is not suitable and corrupt my registry settings and some Windows files (also is not a virus nor spyware), then (after un-installing that software) what methods should I use to recover those Files and Registry? Is there any method in Windows 7 to do this except installing image and re-installing Windows?

Regards,

Right from MS. I decided to give you the official MS answer. The registry is very important and rather than to give you the steps and possibly leaving out a vital step, I thought it best to go to the source.

Back up the registry

It's tough to do which MS has given on their site. They give article on known registry. If I don't know which registry is corrupt then what I should do?

If you did not care for the MS, procedure. I would suggest that you make a system restore point daily (can be done automatically with task scheduler). In the event of a problem you can use the restore point to return to a time when things were working properly. System restore is not like system image, your personal files and doucments will not be affected.
