I had serious problems with making Erunt working on Windows 8 (you need to do some serious tweaking on Vista and 7 as well to make Erunt working) so I opted for "Tweaking.com - Registry Backup" and it works just fine.
How to use it...
Download Tweaking.com - Registry Backup from here: http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/registry_backup.html
Double click on downloaded tweaking.com_registry_backup_setup.exe file to install the program.
Open installed program.
Click on Backup Now button to create first manual backup:
Now adjust some settings.
Click on Settings tab:
By default the program will keep 5 backups.
I changed it to 10.
Now click on Create Schedule button.
By doing so the program will automatically create new Windows task, which will create fresh registry backup on every logon.
If you power your computer on more then once every day and you want to have just one daily registry backup click on Open Advanced Settings button and put checkmark in Only Do 1 Auto Backup Per Day.
You're all set
To restore your registry backup open the program and click on Restore Registry tab.
Select appropriate backup from drop-down menu and click on Restore Now button:
You can also restore registry backup manually.
Open Windows Explorer.
C:\RegBackup\your_computer_name\backup_date folder (it'll look like this: 1.13.2013_7.24.50-PM)
and double click on dos_restore.cmd file.
1. At the above site you can also download portable version.
Portable version can be ran from a thumb drive and keep backups of multiple systems.
In case your computer becomes unbootable you can boot to USB flash drive and restore your registry from there (providing you keep current registry backup on USB drive).
