Can anyone tell me how to find the HKLM keys in regedit?

I have some problem that does not allow me to open regedit.exe, but I can open regedit32,
could that be the source of my problem?

Start > Run > type " regedit " (without the quotes)


Start > Run > type " regedt32 " (without the quotes) NOTICE THAT THERE IS NO 'I' in edit.

Are you saying one of those doesn't work?
And with the one that does you cannot see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE?
Or does that clear things up?

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

Since this is an XP forum - I presume you're using XP.

As search of my XP system shows no such file as Regedit32.exe.

But a Google leads me straight back to this link here at BC: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/R...2.exe-8901.html

Also, Regedit32.exe was included with Windows NT and 2000 - but not XP: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...mb_tol_byti.asp

Here's an article that explains the differences between Regedit.exe and Regedt32.exe: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;141377

Regedt32.exe is available on XP

Is it:
