How to Restore Registry


Recommended Posts

Yes, I read the instructions in CCleaner! Instruction #1 says "Log on to the Endpoint as an administrator."

So.... what or where is "the Endpoint" and how do I log-on to it?

I'm generally pretty computer savy but  never heard of "Endpoint".

Thanks,1972877866_CCleanerEndpoint.thumb.png.77da4594f26a510ff62b5a6eb7e879ee.png

End point means your pc.  Those directions, while still valid, seem to be written with ccleaner cloud in mind. In step 2 it means to say you should go to the folder that you saved the registry back-up (default is your documents folder).

Actually looking at your screenshot again, the instructions are in the ccleaner network documents. So it looks like you may have been in the wrong place, but my edits on the instructions should get you through it.

It's something that has caught a few out before; and it's not realy something that Piriform have control over.

If/when you do a Google search on the topic of restoring the registry in CCleaner, the first entry that comes up in Google is the CCleaner Network documentation talking about endpoints.

The home user documentation/faq is the second entry that Google lists. (Which doesn't talk about networked endpoints).
https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/faq/using/how-do-i-restore-registry-backups

Of course many/most people seraching don't notice that and simply click on the first entry found, which takes them to the CCleaner Network docs.
