    No way I know of. I have a program called ERD commander than can do it from outside of Windows though. Have you tried safe mode. Have you checked the permissions to make sure you have access to edit/delete it?

    Yup, and yup. I was trying to access it as the administrator WHILE in safe mode, an it wouldnt let me deleate it. So fuck it, I just re-installed it.

    yes, you can import and export keys from a prompt. we use that method for example on login - launch a batch from the script to read some registry values and pipe the output to a network drive so we can gather information about workstations. i can post an example file tomorrow

    But what about browsing through and editing it? Do you know of any prog that can do it from DOS or from another working Windows? (Not counting Network registry editing.)
