Do you still have ERUNT in your Start Up folder? If so delete ERUNT from the Start Up folder.

dermotk,

Assuming that ERUNT was installed properly, let's try this.

1. Open Task Scheduler. When the Task Scheduler window comes up click on Task Scheduler Library in the left column. The ERUNT task should be listed in the top window of Task Scheduler. Click on it to highlight it and you should then see the ERUNT task in the bottom window.

2. Now, in the far right column under Selected Item click Properties.
On the ERUNT Properties page, click the Change User or Group button.
On the Select User or Group page, in the box under Enter the object name to select type SYSTEM and click OK.

3. Back on the ERUNT Properties page, click the Triggers tab. Then click the Edit button.
On the Edit Trigger page, make sure the Enabled box at the bottom of the page is checked and click OK.

4. Back on the ERUNT Properties page, click the Actions tab. Then click the Edit button.
On the Edit Action page, make sure that the Action: is set to Start a program. In the Program/Script box, make sure it says "C:\Program Files\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE", be sure the quotation marks are included. In the Add arguments:(optional) box, make sure the following is in there %SystemRoot%\ERDNT\AutoBackup\#Date# sysreg otherusers /noconfirmdelete /noprogresswindow /days:7(Notice the spaces, they're important). Leave the Start in:(optional) box empty. Click OK.

5. Click OK until you get back to the Task Scheduler main page.

6. Close Task Scheduler.

7.Reboot the computer and go to the C:\Windows\ERDNT folder. You should have an AutoBackup folder inside the ERDNT folder. Inside the AutoBackup folder there should be a folder named XX-XX-XXXX (the X's are for the date that the backup was made). The ERDNT folder should eventually contain seven folders as the task has been set up to keep the last seven backups and then start replacing the oldest dated folder with the newest backup.

dermotk,

I think I misspoke. When you first install ERUNT and it automatically runs and backs up the registry, there will only be a folder in C:\Windows\ERDNT\ with the name of the date of the first backup ie, C:\Windows\ERDNT\xx-xx-xxxx(the x's are the date of the first backup. And a cache folder.

You won't get the C:\Windows\ERDNT\AutoBackup folder until the next time the computer is turned on after today and ERUNT backs up the registry. To check this, look in your C:\Windows\ERDNT folder and make sure that there is another folder with the date for the name of the folder. That will let you know that ERUNT was installed properly.

The next time you turn the computer on after today, if the AutoBackup folder in not in C:\Windows\ERDNT, you didn't set the task up properly.

godawgs,
Still no joy as regards automatic backups,on checking the task manager under "last run result" it states; the system can not find the path specified(0x80070003)the erunt folder is in C;programs x86 and the erdnt is in C;windows erdnt.when i check the short cut the target;is"C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE" and the start in; is "C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT" any further help would be appreciated.
I deleted the existing task and reset a new task and all went according to plan,i set the task to run as administrator and it worked,thanks again for all your help keep up the good work.

Well I'm kinda confused now.

when i check the short cut the target;is"C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT\AUTOBACK.EXE" and the start in; is "C:\Program Files (x86)\ERUNT"

What shortcut are you talking about?

It sounds like the new task that you set up will only run when the Administrator is logged on. ERUNT can be set up to automatically back the registry up even if a limited user logs on.

How did you set the task to run as Administrator?

Please open the Task Scheduler, click Task Scheduler Library on the left side of the screen. In the upper window in the middle of the screen, click ERUNT to highlight it. Then in the list on the right side of the screen, click Properties.

The ERUNT Properties page will come up.
1. Take a screen shot of the General tab.
2. Click the Triggers tab and take a screen shot of that page.
3. Click the Actions tab and take a screen shot of that page.
4. Click the Edit button at the bottom of the Actions page. On the Edit Actions page that comes up, in the Add Arguments (Optional) box, highlight everything in that box then right click and click Copy.
5. Open Notepad, put the mouse cursor inside the notepad window, right click and click paste.
7. Post the screen shots and the contents of the Add Arguments(Optional) box.

Hi dermotk,

It looks like everything is there. I've just never set that task up using Run as Administrator. It probably didn't work when we set it up because the (86) was missing from C:\Program Files\ERUNT\Autoback.exe in the Program/Script text box of the Action tab.

As long as you are getting automatic backups when the computer is first turned on each day all is good.
I'm glad you got it worked out.

hi admin,

I can't download ERUNT from "Geeks to Go Forums>Downloads>Software Tools> ERUNT - The Emergency Recovery Utility'.

Moreover, most of Software Tools in there is un-downloadable.

Thanks

Hi hkQQ2010,

Download ERUNT at it's home page Here. It's on the left side of the page. There are also links to Detailed Information and FAQ's. I would use the download with the installer, (one of the first three download links). That way all you have to do is double click the Set Up file and ERUNT will be installed.
I would NOT recommend downloading or using NTREGOPT, the program on the right side of the page.

Good luck.
