Take a complete registry backup using ERUNT

ERUNT (The Emergency Recovery Utility for NT) helps you perform a complete Registry Backup and Restore in Windows NT/2000/2003/XP/Vista.

You can use this utility as a primary registry backup utility, apart from System Restore. ERUNT can be downloaded from Majorgeeks or from Lars' site.

Download ERUNT and install it. ERUNT sets up a shortcut in the Startup group, that backs up the registry for the current day, during the first Windows startup for the day. This feature is provided by Autoback.exe add-on for ERUNT. Learn more about this from the Readme page

To manually backup the entire registry using ERUNT, try this:

1. Click Start, Run and type the path to ERUNT.EXE
