Wondering if there is a software to backup and then restore all Windows 7 native settings.

The use-case is that I've reinstalled my PC or want to replicate same settings on other PC without configuring one-by-one.

Note: please don't suggest built-in Easy Transfer Tool.

It might be helpful if you state what you don't like about Easy Transfer so nobody suggests anything with the same problems. – Shinrai Mar 23 '11 at 14:19
Well, I just want to selectively backup settings. In case of Easy Transfer I got 3.1Gb of garbage I'm sure and I certainly don't want to transfer all that garbage to my newely installed PC. – Pablo Mar 23 '11 at 14:27
