Why so many ControlSets in Registry?

  1. I was looking at the registry and found these Controlsets:

    HKey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet001
    HKey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet002
    HKey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet003
    HKey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet004
    HKey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet005
    HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet

    Why so many? My other computer has only 2.

    Windows XP Pro SP2

    Me too! The active set is CurrentControlSet and ControlSet001 + ControlSet002
    are used for 'the last known good configuration'

    I guess your system has save more than two 'last known ...'
