    You didn't say which version of Windows. With XP you can make a restore point, give yourself permission to System Volume Information folder and copy the registry files out. You can't do that with Vista, but Vista does keep some registry backups in its system32\config folder. If you have multiple os's you can backup each others registries by copying the files from each others system32\config.

    as THC-Mind is saying you can backup your registry by typing regedit in the run dialog box in start menu, once you are in the registry editor, click the file menu, then export, then you can select a name and location you want for your full registry backup. this is for both XP and Vista.:)
