Backing up the registry

How do I back up (ie copy) the registry before I play with it for the first time? Incomplete removal of software.
Do registry cleanup/editors really work?

Goto Start/Run/ Type regedit

from the file menu choose Export. Export to a location of your choice. To reverse, from file menu choose Import, navigate to your saved location, and import you previous backup.

Some work better than others, you pays your money and takes your choice.

If you have XP create a restore point before doing anything with the Registry.
