As Francois said, you need to quit Tomboy, and then make a copy of
your notes directory. On windows this is found at
%APPDATA%\Tomboy\notes\, where APPDATA is probably under the C:\Users
folder. (See http://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/Directories)
To restore the original, replace the notes folder with your backup.

Add-ins (the .dll files) have to be copied into place by hand. See
http://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/Directories for the location.
Hope that helps.
