Having a problem with saving /exporting ALL files in Regedit. System hangs every time I click on save. Seperate sections/hives will save OK but not All files. When I switch user to my wifes, also an administrator, the save all operation is fine with no problems at all !!! Am running WINXp Home with plenty of Ram and hard disk space. Any ideas ?

If you want to back up registry hives, back up the whole registry with XP's backup facility.

M$'s recommendation is to use the Backup utility to back up the System State. The System State includes the registry, Registration Database, and your boot files.

Unlike previous systems they don't recommend backing up individual hives.

Try SFC, start, run, type: sfc/ scannow

Click ok.
