    Two small questions about Win7 Premium

    Hi all,

    My daughter has just bought a PC with Win 7 Premium installed. I'm still using XP so 7 is unfamiliar territory.

    • Where is the Hosts file located in 7?
    • Where is the Registry located in 7...does 7 have a registry backer-upper?

    Thanks!

    John

    Hey, don't apologize; those "Ah-hah!" moments are pretty good.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Registry backup hasn't change too much from XP. The Windows 7 system restore is improved in this regard.
    Chances are if you have used a method or program in XP, you will be able to use a similar method or program in Windows 7.
