Note: Editing the registry is risky, so be sure you have a verified backup before making any changes.

What I do is I export any Registry that I need to tweak, and then look at the exported file. It is in plain text, so you can open the .REG file in Notepad.
Make sure it looks ok.
So, I guess that counts as verifying!

When I backup a registry key/hive/full, I usually add a null key, do the backup, delete the null key, them import the registry. If the null key I entered is returned, this tends to indicate the backup copy is a good copy and I'm happy to say so far, I have never had a problem with this verification method.
