a little insurance I use and recommend is ERUNT... (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed. The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, there are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed....the added benifit is each restore point you create using ERUNT is its a stand alone restore point ...it is totally independent of the others...
get it here...
To remove all restore points except the most recent restore point, follow these steps...
Click Start... then My Computer...Right click the drive you want to free up space...usually C: and then click Properties... Click the General tab... and then click Disk Cleanup...
Click the More Options tab...and then under System Restore... click Clean up...
Click Yes to remove all but the most recent restore point...
Click OK,...click Yes to proceed with this action, and then click OK...
if you have a large hard drive like 160 Gb or larger...lower the amount of space restore can use from the default setting of 12 % to about 3 % or 4%...got a 750 GB or terabyte drive...drop it to 1 or 2 %

How to use Scannow sfc...
To do this click on start...run...then type in...sfc /scannow
NOTE..the single space between sfc and /
This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.
