I am using win2000 and would like to be able to do a simple registry backup everytime I shutdown and start windows. I thought this could be accomplished with scripts or a batch file but I know nothing about either one of those. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get started on this or can point me to the exact solution?
I am not sure this belonged here but I could not tell where else it should go so if it needs to be moved I understand.

You could use NTBACKUP or upgrade to XP, which performs it automatically with System Restore.

But you would not need to perform it when you Shutdown and Start Windows as it would contain the same information. The simplest method to implement it would be to add the NTBACKUP command to your Autoexec.bat with the SYSTEMSTATE option. For more information on it see: http://www.winnetmag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=25961

And let us know what you did as feedback is our reward.

switching to XP is not an option on this machine, due to unsupported hardware. The NTbackup option is something I will look into. thanks for the info and I will post back when I have a resolution.
