    How to Restore Previous Versions of the registry in windows 7

    Post  Peppies™ on 14th March 2011, 10:47

    This article will show you how you can restore a previous version of your registry in windows 7. However, this comes with a WARNING, yes WARNING, please do this on your own terms.

    1. Disable UAC in windows and reboot the pc, becoz unless you donot disable UAC, there isint much that you can do. Once the pc has restarted, open windows explorer and head to:

    C:WindowsSystem32Config

    2. Right-click anywhere in the white space area of the folder, choose Properties from the menu, and then click the Previous Versions tab. Once you’re there, double-click the appropriate folder (Hint: Look at the Date modified field to decide which version of the files you want to restore.)
    step 1 example

    3. Select the registry hive files you need, and copy them to a folder of your choice.
    step 3

    4. Click OK when you see the Windows Security prompt.
    step 4

    5. You now have a folder showing you the backup register keys
    step 5

    6. At this point you can load the entire registry hive into the registry, which will make it a sub-key of one of the main sections, and allow you to access settings from the older version. Open up the Registry Editor using regedit.exe in the Start Menu search or run boxes, click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_USERS, and then use File –> Load Hive.

    step 6

    7. You will now be prompted to name the hive, you can name it anything that you wish.

    8. You can now see the new keys with the contents from last week backup. So, for instance, if one of the settings or license keys for an application was lost, we can find it by browsing through the keys for that application. You’ll have to manually make the changes if you’re doing just a few keys.

    If you are trying to use this method to restore large chunks of the registry, you can export a key, modify the exported file to have the correct key path instead of Test, and then import it again. It’s a bit of a pain, but might be helpful if you need to.

    Once you’re done, you should make absolutely certain to delete this entire key, or else it’s going to add a lot of extra bloat to your registry that you really don’t need.

    Again, you should be very careful when editing the registry, but at least you know a lot more than you did before.

    P.S, Please note that i have not made this article on my own, this is the works of editing it from another source. I hope it helps..
