    ...or just files? Thanks.

  2. Is there a way to repair your registry without deleting it?

    I thought that sfc /scannow would work but I don't think it repairs the registry, just the .dlls.
    Is there a command that repairs the registry without having to repair XP entirely? I have found that a screwed up registry is the main cause of slow bootup times. But I don't know how to repair it without deleting the registry commands of programs already installed. All I really like to do is add those commands that may have been deleted by mistake or made corrupt by mistake.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing some issues using Windows 10.

    I would like to know some information.


    • What registry fix are you trying to run?

    • What is the exact issue that you are facing?

    • Have you taken a backup of all your data?
    I would suggest you to take a backup of all your data before doing any changes in the registry keys. If you do any incorrect changes to the registry you won’t be able to boot the computer.

    Disclaimer: This section, method, or task contains steps that tells you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps
    carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in
    the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    322756 (How to back up and restore the registry in Windows )

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows.



    Please let us know the information in brief. We will be glad to assist you further.
