Windows 7 64-bit Registry backup size?


Recommended Posts

I had to re-install the operating system to get rid of all the bad stuff on my laptop.  Not too long after the installation,  I discovered several suspicious looking items in the startup section or tab of msconfig.  I scanned drive with Malwarebytes and it listed hundreds of PUP.xxxxx that should be deleted.


I backed-up my registry and created a restore point before deleting the PUP.xxxx items.

The back-up registry file was about 204,600 KB .  After deleting the PUP.xxx items, I created another back-up registry file and it is 13KB.

The laptop seems to be OK thus far.


My question is, does the enormous difference in the registry back-up file sizes make sense?
