    Backing up the Windows registry

    Before making any changes to the Windows registry it is a good idea to back up the registry first:

    MS has listed a method here.

    create-backup-of-windows-8-registry.jpg

    There are many other apps that include registry backups, but this is a stand alone app.

    There are many apps that include a registry backup. This is just one stand alone system that performs this chore. Always nice to have options.

    Sure, why not.

    But it's always wise to create a System Restore Point before accessing the Windows Registry; just in case something goes pear-shaped.

    I agree with Xircal. I think System restore backs up more than just the registry. It doesn't back up any user data however.
