Hi all, slap my wrist if I'm in the wrong place.

have just bought a Amilo Fujitsu laptop and when I open a registry backup after using the reg cleaner, there is no Merge

Thought I would ask incase I have to use a backup.

Do you mean that when you right-click on the CCleaner registry backup, there is no merge option in the menu?

 

Yes Hazelnut, should have made that clear, sorry.

Are you seeing the reg back up as an ordinary file or as as a reg file, sort of little blue blocks with cc time and date made under it.

It appears as an ordinary file hazelnut.

Just another Vista problem? Hope it can be fixed.

Thanks for the link, I tried the avi being the first, but the reg saved files still show as ordinary files. Would you know which one to download please?

I think hazel was referring to the reg fix (in the same section as the avi fix)

Many thanks JD Power & hazelnut, I will try that & let you know the result.

Right, I found D/L the reg made no difference, then I found that the file extension(.reg) did not appear after your cc number, so I entered it and I got the right icon with the blue squares. So I remamed the others with the reg ext & all is well.

On my desktop PC running XP2 the file ext appears automatically but it would seem on Vista it doesn't.

However thank you both for your help. I will leave the fix in the registry but it would seem that all that was required is for me to type (.reg) after the cc number.
