RBU Ver 2.00 (Registry Backup Utility)

DownloadDownload RBU Ver 2.00 for XP and Vista

RBU Ver 2.00 (Registry Backup Utility) is a dirt simple registry backup tool that I use in my day to day work as a computer tech. Before doing any work on a customers system I use this tool so that I have a full backup of the registry just in case it may be needed.

The file is stand alone which means their is no install. Just click on RBU wait a few secs and a copy of the registry (registry-backup.reg) will be saved to the current user desktop.

If needed the backed up registry (registry-backup.reg) can be restored. Just click on (registry-backup.reg) and when Windows asks if you wish to add the information to the registry click on yes.

RBU has beeen used on Windows XP and Vista.


DownloadDownload PowerShell-V for Windows Vista

PowerShell for Vista or PowerShell-V is the newest version from my series of "PowerShell" programs.

Please make sure if you have and old version of PowerShell installed that you Un-install it first.
Also note that as Windows Vista is a new O/S and the fact that I have used past user input to base my programming on.
So some functions may have been dropped while I have added new ones.

PowerShell-V adds all the listed items to your context menus (right click).
Now you can re-start/shutdown, drop to dos, edit the registry and much more, faster!

PowerShell-V adds all these items to your context menus.
Right Click The "My Computer" icon.
Add/Remove Programs, Advanced Firewall, Backup and Restore, Calculator, Disk Cleanup, Control Panel, Command Prompt, Registry editor, Shutdown, Reboot, Security Center, System Properties, System Restore, Internet Properties, Reliability and Performance Monitor, System Config, System Information, Task Manager, and Windows Calendar.
In "New" property menus.
Batch File, HTML Document, Registration Entries, Cascading Style Sheet, Jscript, .Reg file, Vbscript.
Added Search Providers for the IE7 Search Box.,,, Wikipedia, YouTube.
Please Note PowerShell-V will only work with Windows Vista.

Make note that I have been using the name "Powershell" for a series of programs since April 2002 and "PowerDos" for years before that.
This program has nothing to do with the new Microsoft program called "PowerShell".
