Backup Entire Registry in Windows XP

Note: You can create a System Restore Point instead.

Backup registry

From the Start menu

  1. Select run
  2. Type: regedit
  3. Click OK or press Enter
  4. From the Registry Editor select My Computer
  5. From the Registry Editor’s menu select File | Export
  6. In the Export Registry File window, choose a location to save the file in.
    Note: I recommend that you save the file to your Desktop or C:\ drive, so that it easy accesible if you do run into problems later.
  7. Enter a name for the backup file in the File name textbox.
    Note: This file name is for you to remember what the exported registry file is for. Since you are backup up the entire Registry I recommend that you use the following filename: Full Registry Backup.
  8. Click the Save button.

A Registration File with a REG file extension will be created in the location you chose in Step 6 and with the file name you chose in Step 7.
