How to Repair Windows Database Errors?

The Windows database is a delicate file which serves as one of the major components of the Microsoft Windows operating system. This dataset records all the resources (software and hardware) that are available on the computer system. It also provides a communication foundation which allows all attached and installed components to interact with each other.


Problems that are attributed to the Windows database normally affect the overall performance of the computer system. It may result in more severe problems like rendering the operating system unusable.


Because of the sensitivity of the Windows database, it is wise to back it up before attempting to correct any related issues or errors. If you are using a third-party PC optimization and repair tool this process is easily done. For manual backing up of the Windows database:


  1. Click on the Start menu and choose the "Run" option
  2. In the Open box type the command REGEDIT and click on the "OK" button and hit the enter key
  3. When the Registry Editor window opens click on the "File" menu and choose the "Export" option
  4. This will bring up a dialog box which will prompt you to type in the name of the backup file. Take note of the location and the name of the file with the extension REG before clicking the "Save" button

It is important to note that when you back up your Windows database it is stored in its current state. This means that whatever existing errors or problems they are included in the back up file. This also means that if you use this back up to restore the database, these problems or errors will exist in your machine.
