I am running Windows XP Home on a Compaq Presario R3000. The other day I
went looking for the Backup program so I could backup my registry (I have an
adware program that needs removing, I have the instructions....different
forum all together). Anyway, long story short, I don't hae the Backup
program. It's not in my Start menu where it oughta be and a search of the
hard drive doesn't turn it up either? Any ideas as to why I may not have it
or where it might be hiding? I've had the computer about 6 months and
haven't had occasion to use the Backup so just now noticed it's missing.

Thanks!

If your computer came with an XP installation CD you can
install the Backup program by running ntbackup.msi from the
VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP folder. If you've only got a recovery CD
then you'll have to download the file here:
