26 Support & Help / keylogger?
« on: October 13, 2012, 04:58:44 am »
This a.m. I logged on and after the reg backup was created I read the VSS file to check time which was good.
However, I have attached a file which shows that someone seems to have written something in my word pad as I was closing it. I meant to use paint which I eventually did but perhaps it was lucky I saw this.

Can you tell from the contents if I have malware?

Thank you

27 Support & Help / new registry update
« on: October 09, 2012, 06:43:32 am »
My desktop seemed to work quickly and successfully and the log file opend in MS Word.

My laptop similarly configured, took twice as long, appears successful yet the log file opens in notepad.

I have MSIE configured the same with Word being the choice under the program tab on both pcs. I do not see where I can make Word the default in the laptop.

Why would it take twice as long for the laptop with the same ram  and processor (6GB and i5) to backup but more importantly, how do I get the laptop to open the log file in Word instead of Notepad?
Thank you

28 Support & Help / 2nd pc failed reg backup
« on: October 06, 2012, 01:21:24 pm »
I hope I am sending this to the right place and that you want to hear about issues so they can be attended to.
I have attached a log file as the backup said,"Backup failed using backup method" or something like that.

29 Support & Help / date removed
« on: October 06, 2012, 10:32:34 am »
When I logged on today, the process said 9/22/12 was deleted yet I only have 8 days of backups and am set for 14.
I hope the feedback is beneficial as I am not complaining.
Log attached

!!!!!!I take it all back as it dawned on me that there were 14 calendar days not logons.
It is doing its job well and I will change the days to 20 to allow for those days I don't log on one of the pcs.
I noticed Thomas had good to say bout the beta version. Will it be out soon?

30 Support & Help / registry backup said failed
« on: October 05, 2012, 10:40:46 am »
The last time this happend I was told to send a text file. I took a prnt scrn of the information under the particular backup that said it failed and hope this is what you want.

This is the sentence I found in the log backup,"[10/5/2012 - 1:33:55 PM] Volume Shadow Copy Failed! vss_7_64.exe isn't running. Check the Log_VSS.txt file to view any errors."

For future reference, when something happens, please tell me how to send you the information you need to make it easier for you.

**Sorry for all the modifications but the last attachment is a copy of the log file on a word document..

31 Support & Help / startup trouble
« on: September 30, 2012, 06:21:42 am »
I booted up and the backup at log on seemed to be not working right and said something about falling back .
It seems as though a backup occured when I look in backup and under regbak but I had two questions.
1-What could I do to prevent  this from occuring again?
2-If I did a restore, would a full restoration of all of the registry  take place in as much as if it functioned properly?
Thank you

32 Support & Help / Secunia
« on: September 25, 2012, 08:24:42 am »
This is the reply i received from Secunia;" I must say I am surprised you have installed it without contacting the vendor because it does not have a valid digital signature."

I ran the av program and am satisfied and further do not even understand wht he is referring to.

Btw, Does anyone have the same problem i have. Both of my pcs have stopped backing up at log on so I have no recent backups to restore from. I just noticed this.

33 Support & Help / secunia and log on
« on: September 25, 2012, 06:49:47 am »
First is now in the Secunia database and will be detected upon scanning.

Secondly, I installed the last update to's registry backup and since I cannot see where it says to backup at  logon.
I have not had any backups since the download.
What should I do?
Thank you

34 Support & Help / Inclusion in database Secunia
« on: September 23, 2012, 03:02:22 pm »
I did not want to do something without your approval and was not sure how to enter the HTTP required.
However, if you open Secunia ver 3 in the upper right corner there is a place to click on to "add a program". I think it means they will add your registry program to their database  - - that is if you want it there. I think it would be good advertising and exposure, but that is up to you.

General Computer Support / folder removal
« on: September 22, 2012, 07:59:19 am »
If you install a program and there are leftover folders, can you run a registry restore like's and go back to when the folders did not exist and therefore would not now appear?

General Computer Support / folder removals ?
« on: September 19, 2012, 11:16:46 am »
Hello all
As the attachements show, there are 7 Roxio/Sonic files[shared] in Ccleaner but I do not use Roxio or Sonic.
There are also tons of Silverlight files in Ccleaner along with as many Activex/Com issue.
Also, there are Ubuntu and VM files in Windows explorer which I tried but thought I removed.
Question, can I  remove them?

I was trying to get Ccleaner to run out of a VM so I could delete all if there was trouble.
Is the best way to 'image' prior to unning Ccleaner or is there a better way?

If I restore the registry and there is trouble will Tweaks registry restore recover from the trouble?
Thank you for the help.

37 Support & Help / problem opening program again
« on: September 18, 2012, 12:50:48 pm »
I thought you would like to know about the attachment.
I reported it once before but only verbally as I forgot to get a picture of it.
I opened the program again and it was fine.
Is there something I should do?

Feedback & Suggestions / suggestion for new [program
« on: September 14, 2012, 09:20:10 am »
Hello Shane
If this is seemingly  ridiculous to a programmer, it is because of my computer naivetée with the registry.
Most  fear that a registry cleaner will make an error and remove the wrong entry.
If there were two ways of looking at the registry, as in two cleaners, there would be some common entries to be removed. If the program cross referenced the two findings and only kept those that the two found in common, would that not reduce the odds of removing the wrong entries. I do not know if all of this can be put in one comprehensive program but it woud be a big attraction.
1-Step one = one cleaner analyze the pc
2-Step two =  the second cleaner analyze the registry differently.
3-Step three =  find the enties that they found in common by cross referencing.
Then with a restore point created the cleaning would only apply to those the two DIFFERENT approaches detected.
Thjs is probably eay to suggest yet difficult to create but maybe worth considering.

General Computer Support / Ccleaner
« on: September 11, 2012, 11:50:52 am »
I have always believed one should never use Ccleaner or any registry cleaner as they do more harm than good.
With this new registry back up I am now not sure. If I used my registry backup before I used the registry cleaner at Ccleaner, would I be able to restore the registry as though nothing happened if there was trouble after the cleaning?
Thank you

Great to see you are on top of the registry backup.
I do not know about technical issues but from a users point of view, the program works easily and that is what many people who could not figure ERUNT wanted. Yesterday something happened to internet on the laptop, and instead of system restore, I simply clicked Tweak's reg backup/restore and was up and running in no time. I hope dropping the name "Tweak's" reg back up arestoreore in different foums helps to keep things going well.

General Computer Support / file question Exent_SDM
« on: August 30, 2012, 02:25:44 pm »
I downloaded a virtual box and Ubuntu and  find the attched file Exent_SDM in my startup section.
I do not know if this file is related to the downloads and cannot find information about it.
I ran the registry restore to before the VM but it still is in the startup entries.
I cannot find any information on it.
When I run the autorun in Revo it says it is invalid.
This is the path.
C:\Users\us\AppData\Local\Temp\SDM143\Free Ride Games.exe "l 'Startup' u '' p '143' c '615450'".
Attached is a prntscrn of the temp folder.
What would you advise me to do?
Thank you

Everything Else / Ubuntu
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:21:04 pm »
No one can solve this so if you have time maybe you can.

I downloaded the current iso file from Ubuntu's home page to dvd-rw.
When I insert it in the lap top it works. When I do the same with the desktop the screen shows black with white data and freezes so I have to hard boot. I have almost burned out a power supply by trying various discs and other ways and have about 6 hang ups.
When it installed, by error, I removed it but had a heck of a time removing the dual boot -I did finally.

Do you have any idea why I cannot get past this frozen screen?
I have gone to the BIOS and set cd/dvd as first boot and it still hangs.

General Computer Support / size of system images
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:11:16 pm »
I have the registry up and running -fine.
I have set the # of days to 30 and sometimes delete a backup because I have to log on a couple or three times a day.
When I reach 30 days I will check back.

A general pc backup related question you may help me with - Acronis takes 42 GB when I do a system restore including folders etc.
Windows 7 utility does the same in 30 GB.
Any idea why one is so much smaller than the other -verification, or would that not figure in?
Thank you

45 Support & Help / # of days is not working
« on: August 16, 2012, 12:35:55 pm »
I looked at the # of backups in both the program and in RegBak and there are 24 yet the setting is set for 20.
Perhaps it is because it means days and not backups as there are 18 days as opposed to 24 backups .
The message may be two days premature.
Thank you

General Computer Support / task manager
« on: August 08, 2012, 10:17:10 am »
As the attachment shows, I have lost the full task manger and only have the processes.
I do not know how long it has been like this.
How do I restore the full task manager?
Should my first move be to run the Tweak registry backup or is there an adjustment to make?
Thank you

47 Support & Help / settings
« on: July 31, 2012, 04:45:22 am »
I am using the default which runs the registry backup at log on with current user account.
Two questions, please;
1-is this the right choice for log on
2-why does it seems not to take as long a a manual backup? Is it because it is running in the background?
Thank you

First, I would like to say that I am very happy with the registry back up program.

I was looking at the Tweak's Windows All in One program.
I had used the following in the past and wondered if they are the same or if the Tweak program exceeds the Windows one and I should use it instead of Windows.
"Microsoft Fix It Solution Center troubleshooting software issues."
Thank you

General Computer Support / folder question
« on: July 23, 2012, 10:26:48 am »
There is a folder under RegBak calld temp.
If the registry program were to be deleted, would/should the temp folder be removed also?
Thank you

50 Support & Help / schedule
« on: July 23, 2012, 10:17:21 am »
Although I have other threads with this information, I have just reinstalled and wanted to start  from scatch.
Regarding the scheduling, is there a default schedule that I should see when I click on edit schedule, or should I create schedule and create one in the task scheduler?
If I need to work in the TS are there any doubtful check boxes or tricky areas that you can caution me about?
If I do not want a schedule, I can just run manually.
Should I then delete schedule or is there none if I have not created one?
Thank you
