To back up your registry go to Start / Run and type in regedit to open the 
registry editor, then go to registry in the menu and choose export registry 
and save it with a unique name.  I also recommend EasyCleaner from ToniArts as it is very good for every windows 
operating system I've used.  Check out all the applications there too, 
everything is very useful and freeware too.
