    Before you edit the registry, export the keys in the registry that you plan to edit, or back up the whole registry. If a problem occurs, you can then follow the steps in the "Restore the registry" to restore the registry to its previous state

    Manual steps to back up the registry in in Windows XP

    1.Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then click OK.
    2.On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Create a restore point, and then click Next
    3.On the Create a Restore Point page, type a name for the restore point and then click Create
    4.After the restore point has been created, click Close.

    Note If System Restore is turned off, you receive a message that asks whether you want to turn on System Restore now. Click Yes. Then, in the System Properties dialog box, click to clear the Turn off System Restore check box, click OK, and then repeat the steps


    Manual steps to restore the registry in Windows XP

    Use System Restore to undo registry changes in in Windows XP

    1.Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe, and then click OK.
    2.On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next
    3.On the Select a Restore Point page, click the system checkpoint. In the On this list select the restore point area, click an entry that is named "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," and then click Next. If a System Restore message appears that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make, click OK.
    4.On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration and then restarts the computer.
    5.Log on to the computer. When the System Restore confirmation page appears, click OK..

    Use Registry Editor
    Warning: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk
