Create full registry backups

Windows® ME
To restore the registry use the Start Menu -> Registry Healer -> Backup -> Registry Restore shortcut or run the program and go to the Action top menu -> Restore the registry from full backup. In Windows® ME it is not necessary to manually reboot in DOS mode. The Backup utility will ask which backup file you want to restore. A list of backups will be displayed as shown in the screenshot.

Using the arrow keys, select the CAB (CABs are archived copies of the Registry). CAB files are listed by date with the most recent copy at the top. The CABs with the "RH_backup" labels were created by Registry Healer before the first registry scan. You can restore the latest Registry Healer CAB or the most recent CAB created at system startup (it is labeled "Started").

Once the backup is selected the system will reboot and restore registry files.

Caution! Make sure that your backups are up to date. Restoring from an old backup could be dangerous if major changes have been made to the system or hardware in the meantime. For example, if you have installed Internet Explorer and restore your registry from a backup predating it, your computer may not boot properly or Internet Explorer may not work.
