What Is Registry? How To Export & Import Registry??

Updated: Sep 1

Registry is an indispensable part of the Windows operating system. This database contains important information that stores all settings of the computer's operating system, including configuration for devices and driver information. In other words, what you can think of is stored within the registry.


However, it is an open database that allows users to change data. Using registry to edit the system is always one of the top preferences for the user and sometimes leads to serious system failures. So to ensure that the registry is "secure" under any circumstances, you must back up this database before making any changes to the system and restore it if you have a problem. .


What is a Windows Registry?


Windows Registry is basically a large internal database that contains important information about the computer



Registry Editor

Windows Registry is basically a large internal database that contains important, accurate information about your computer and contains almost anything on your computer,

such as:

System Hardware Software and drivers installed

System Installation Profile Information






Windows needs to mention information in the registry to open an application, install new software and edit the hardware. When things went wrong, many decided to mess with the registry without understanding its meaning.


In fact, the software registry is too small in size to delete or orphan registry (associated with uninstalled programs) and does not experience any problems for the computer.


However, when it comes time to really put the registry in trouble, it is important to know what you are doing and the best way is often the easiest.


What is the reason for registry errors?


There are some common causes of registry errors, some for concern, some not:

1. Destitute: This is not a problem. These "Destitute" entries appear when you uninstall the application and leave behind the registry entry pieces. Many registry fixes will claim this issue at once, but in fact they only take a few kilobytes of data on your computer.


2. Duplicate Key: This is not a problem. These duplicate keys are generated when you reinstall, update, or update the software on your computer, including the operating system. Registry Fix Software Report states that the software will be confused by duplicate entry, slowing the computer, but in fact this is not possible.


3. Registry Fragment: No problem. Like duplicate keys, registry pieces when the software is uninstalled, upgraded or updated.


4. System shutdown error: The cause of the problem is not sure. Whenever the computer is closed, the copy of the registry will be saved to system memory. If the computer suddenly stops, crashes or stops working for some other reason, the copy of the registry may cause problems in the future, but it is unlikely to happen.

5. Malware and viruses: This is a big deal. All types of malware and viruses frequently attack and modify the registry and require immediate attention.
