All programs have always something to fix, even after beta releases. Most important thing in these cases is the support provided by the program's developer(s).
But yours is a different thing, because you're complaining about a Microsoft feature without to explain us what is the exact problem that you've received in your laptop.

I have clicked on everything in the task scheduler and none of us can see

"just right click on the schedule for the reg repair and hit properties :-)"

Where is that?

Is there an easier way? than configuring the task scheduler which is hard unless you have been there before.

This extra step doesn't make it only for advanced users, as you wrote before.

Sorry to disturb you again, but I have just another doubt.  :artist:

I loaded ntuser.dat as hive in regedit, but I can't find any Volatile Environment subkey, as you can see in this image:

Is it normal to not have this subkey in my backupped ntuser.dat?

This time restore the user profiles but not the system reg files and let me know how it goes :wink:

Restoring only the user profiles I solved my issue. Now all restored files have their old files.
I can't imagine how much work it will be required for you to fix it in a new release.

Anyway, thank you for your support. You're very kind, as always.

The .bak are the old registry files before the restore. They are safe to delete.

The log files Windows creates, so dont delete them :wink:

Like I said my program should be deleting them before each restore, unless they where locked for some reason.


I have also:

When you did the restore did you reboot?

Also did you only restore the one reg file or all of them?

Can you also post the restore log? :wink:


1) Yes, of course.
2) All of them.

« on: July 08, 2012, 12:38:54 PM »
I did a backup with v1.2.1 before to apply a registry tweak (disablefullrowselect.reg).
The problem is that I restored "successfully" this backup with the restore button on Windows, but I can still see all modified entries at their place.

For example, if I load as hive my backup version of ntuser.dat in regedit, FullRowSelect entry is not present. But I can still see it after the restore in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced.

For me it seems an unsuccessful restore, but for the program is a successful restore.  :shocked:

Windows 7 x64.

The registry are just files. If you have access to the files in the windows repair area you can simply copy them to another folder :wink:


No doubt, but I'd like to create a batch file that reproduces exactly Registry backup folder structure (with respective files, of course).

I'm using Registry Backup 1.2.0 portable version, but with surp,278.210.htmlrise I discovered it isn't really portable because it writes recovery console values in registry and a tweaking file in c:\windows.

I think it would be great:

1) an uninstall script in general to restore previous settings and deleting all files generated from the program.
2) generating a dedicated log file (history) of all written values or files created from the program, in the root of the Registry Backup's folder (including previous default values).

And another question... how can I create a registry backup from Windows Vista & 7 Repair Options?

It could be useful to backup a new Windows installation without any registry edit.

WMIDiag often reports services not installed, not used or disabled on our system.

I think it's aimed mostly for enterprise users than home users.

However, if you have rebuilded the WMI repository, you should notice a performance boost when you try to open event viewer or task scheduler.
Except the fact you may have need to re-run the setup of some 3rd party products.

This is the MS advice:

Warning: Rebuilding the WMI repository has resulted in some 3rd party products not working until their setup is re-run & their MOF re-added back to the repository.

Let me know how it goes.

And for the system account, is it set for at system startup or log on? Which ever one it is try switching it to the other and see if you still have the problem :wink:


There is no difference in behavior betwen "at logon" or at "startup".
Updating Network card drivers didn't help here.

A good workaround is disabling IPV6 through network connection properties:

or, you can delay your task for 2 or more minutes after logon without disabling IPV6 (delay is not supported in XP task scheduler).

This last method helps a lot, but you can't use schedule buttons in the program to create or edit your task, because they will reset delay task function to none every time you push them.

UPDATE: I removed "delay task" and set my task to run (again) "at windows startup". Now I have no error messages, while before "at windows startup" setting didn't do anything to stop error messages.
The only difference is that this time I created a new task from W7-64 task scheduler instead to use your program for it.
Maybe this is the reason because "at windows startup" option didn't work before.

It runs fine when you run it normally, but when running under the system account it crashes?

And the error shows that the ntdll.dll is causing the crash. That is a very odd one.

What I need to find out is it something with your system or the timing at which it is being ran under the system account?

Schedule it to run under the system account, then go to the task scheduler and manually start it. Does it still crash or does it only crash at system startup?


It crashes only at system startup. Starting task manually I have no crash.

Update: I have just disabled IPV6, no crash in event viewer this time.

1) Disable IPV6

We disabled IPv6 using the documented way over at
It will not break anything long as you only make the changes in that document. For what it is worth I would make a note of the configuration in the network adapter properties.
Once you have completed the IPv6 disable, we re-run the Internet Connection Wizard and Fix My Network wizard.

2) If you have already Windows 7 SP1, install this hotfix:
Remote procedure call service crashes on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003 SP2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Last 1.2.0 version is really stable to me.  :wink:

I have created a new task from the button "Create schedule", but at the logon I can see the entire gui during backup operations... a bit invasive imho.

1) Can you consider to display the loading window without including the rest of interface (but only for /silent parameter)?  :smiley:
2) Can you implement a switch parameter like "nogui" to exclude completely any interface during backup?
3) When you create a task, it appears only a basic window compiled with a few options (i.e. there isn't delay task function introduced for the first time in Vista).
Otherwise you could list in your FAQ all ways to customize your task according to your needs.

Is it possible to have an "apply" button for changes to take effect or maybe write that the user have to restart the program for changes to take effect?

I don't agree so much with it. If it were possible, I'd prefer an immediate activation when you check fallback option.

Other things to fix:
1) Program window is not resizable.
2) A few AV software detect vss_start.exe, vss_pause.exe, TweakingRegistryBackup.exe as dangerous:

You could try to report a false positive following these links:
