From a wilderssecurity thread:
"...ntuser.dat is a registry hive file that loads as HKEY_CURRENT_USER when a user logs on. The HKEY_CURRENT_USER (ntuser.dat) contains the user profile for the user who is currently logged on to the computer. The user profile includes environment variables, personal program groups, desktop settings, network connections, printers, and application preferences. "
I have not vetted that source! I have no idea how accurate or inaccurate the above may/may not be.
