    To export or backup all or part of the registry to a text file

    Click My Computer to export all of the registry, or click a folder to export only the contents of that folder.
    On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
    Browse to the location where you want to store the exported file.
    In the File name box, type a name for the new file.


    there ya go Buddha

    I have never seen any thing good said about the Microsoft Backup utility, but if you want to restore it try going to Add/Remove programs>Windows Setup>System Tools>Details.

    If it is unchecked, check it and follow prompts; you will need your System CD or to point to c:\windows\options\cabs when a disk is called for. If it is already checked, uncheck it, reboot and add it.

    I'm going to move this to OS since it really isn't a virus/security issue.

    Savvy,

    I think Buddha means something else.

    Buddha,

    I'ts possible that MsBackup hasn't been installed yet.

    Do this:

    In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.

    On the Windows Setup tab, click Disk Tools (or System Tools), and then click Details.

    Click the Backup check box to select it, and then click OK.

    Click OK.

    Keep your Windows CD-ROM handy, unless you've got your installation cabs on your drive in C:\Windows\Options\Cabs

    Good luck,

    No, I mean, when you doubleclick 'System Tools', this amounts to the same thing as clicking 'details'.
    So you don't need to do that any more.

    When you doubleclick System Tools, you ought to get the contents of it, containing 'Backup'
