Restore Registry Backup error


wtd3

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am using the latest version of CCleaner v3.28.1913 64-bit on a Windows 8 Desktop PC and I cannot restore (Merge) by registry backups. I am getting the following error (see attachment)

 

What is the problem? Please help.

 

Thanks!

yup, I concur with Winnie. Please run regedit as an administrator and remerge.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

my apologies if you already know, but with us all being relatively new to Win8, in case you don't know, or for others for future reference.

 

to get into RegEdit as Administrator (or most things for that matter)

 

hit the Windows key on your keyboard

just start typing regedit, it should find it in the apps

right click it, then down along the bottom, select Run as Administrator

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.
Three things are certain; Birth, Death and loss of data. You control the last.
