Has anyone got or gotten the ERUNT.INI file to work?

I've unziped ERUNT to a directory, created the INI file per the ReadMe, ran ERUNT and could not get the GUI to use the INI file settings at all.

TIA!

UPDATE: Lars Hederer emailed me back, i missed adding the [ERUNT] line to the INI file, so it's fixed. Also i asked how to add comments to the INI file and he said to use ; for comments.

In my correspondence with Lars Hederer, he has said that saving multiple user registries at once is not currently supported. To be clear, my systems only have one user login at a time, and most users have Administrative level capabilities.

My question is, is ERUNT useless for backing up multiple-user WinXP systems because a ERUNT registry recovery will not work fully if attempted?

Has anyone been successful in using ERUNT on multiple-user WinXP systems? If so how was this done differently than a Administrator-only WinXP system? What are the ways to accomplish full registry backups using ERUNT plus any additional scripts for a multiple-user configured system?

What is the recovery difference if ERUNT is run from the AllUsers Start folder rather than a User Start folder?

OK. I'm confused. In the malware and spyware cleaning guide, it tells you to install ERUNT. When I did, I got NTREGOPT, presumably by default. Didn't touch it. I followed the directions as written. MY computer slowed down to the speed of cold molasses. I uninstalled ERUNT and it was back to normal. At this point, I need to start over and redo the whole procedure. Should I skip ERUNT, or does the result I got indicate something about my computer? Or is there a way to install ERUNT without getting NTREGOPT? if I didn't run NTREGOPT, would it's mere presence have caused the problem? :)

Works on my Win7 64-bit system also. Installs in Program Files(x86). I'm not going to try NTREGOPT though.

Hi, I have a question about ERUNT. I have it set up and everything, but I don't know how to use it. My backups are saved at C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT. Let's say I have the folder "3-4-2010" and I want to restore to that date. How do I do it? Do I drag the folder and drop it into the AUTOBACK icon (located in C:\Program Files\ERUNT)?

Thanks for your time.

The restore program, ERDNT.EXE, must be run from within each restore folder. In your case you that should be C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT\3-4-2010\ERDNT.EXE.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

I just downloaded and set up "ERUNT" as shown above except where it asks "Create an ERUNT entry in the Startup folder? I accidentally clicked YES when I should have clicked NO. Is there any way to change this and if it can be changed could you please give directions on how to change it? Thank You very much!

Click Start > Run > Type msconfig > Go to the Startup tab > Uncheck the box beside ERUNT
