Hello, just did a Fresh install on widows xp, can i copy the registry b4 making changes?
In the past sometimes if i load software thats a trial i cannot even reload.
My thoughts would be if i could copy my registry now while its fresh maybe i could change it back later if ever need?
Is there a program out there that does this and is "simple" to use?

thanks

Even better, use disc imaging software to make regular backups of your system.
