Hey guys, I installed erunt and noticed, they suggest that you disable system restore. Is there a conflict there? I would like to keep system restore running if possible. Thanks joe mc

I've never used it but couldn't you turn off System Restore, make your ERUNT copy, then turn it back on? I also don't think I would use the NTREGOPT program that comes with it

Thanks garmanma, I ran system restore after i first installed erunt. I didn't have any problems, but then i noticed they said to turn restore off. I guess i will run both and see what happens. Why wouldn't you use ntregopt ? I'm still learning Mark. Thats why i like system restore. Thanks I appreciate your help. joe

Why wouldn't you use ntregopt ?

I don't believe in registry cleaners. Not many people here do. Have a read here:

I use ERUNT and love it! Many people have turned off System Restore and do just fine without it. It's a personal choice. I still have System Restore, but I don't use it all the time.

I have a script in my start up to run System Restore on my first boot of the day. After that, it just depends on what changes, program installations, etc that I do. If I'm just messing around with some tweaking or installing some small applications, then I'll just use ERUNT. If I'm installing something other than "simple" software like drivers, and before going to Windows Update, I will make a manual System Restore Point followed by an Erunt Point. In the event I have to go back, I use System Restore first and then the Erunt Point for good measure.

I also use NTREGOPT from time to time. It doesn't do anything to the registry other than compact it, basically. It's not a registry cleaner. From the website:

Note that the program does NOT change the contents of the registry in
any way, nor does it physically defrag the registry files on the drive
(as the PageDefrag program from SysInternals does). The optimization
done by NTREGOPT is simply compacting the registry hives to the
minimum size possible.
