Batch File to Backup Muliple systems (windows XP and 7) registry

Want to have a batch file that I can run from time to time to make a copy of each system on my network, other than system state backup, that will automatically backup each system's registry to a local folder and then ahve the contents of that local folder copied to my server. Right now only way I have in place is to remind each user to run a manual back from Registry Editor--but that scares me that I have them responsible for that or even knowing this toll is out there.

You can use ERUNT to automatically backup a reg. Works with XP, and as long as UAC is off, with Win7 too

There you go - it runs on startup. Simply set the "backup to" to be \\network share\%computername% and then each PC has its own folder - clean and hassle free

OK Great will give that a try too and then decide on who to give the points to or to split them up if both work great--thanks for the help!
