Can I edit a registry on a slave position? I was looking at a support forum that came up in a google search and I followed a set of instrutions that I should not have! I was told to edit the userinit.exe to userinit.e-xe, and I did. I intern put the drive in another pc and it is a slave. I would like to edit the registry and repair it if possible. Does anyone have any I ideas?:4-

Welcome to TSF!

So you changed the userinit value located here?
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Witht the drive connected to another PC
Click Start | Run (or press WinKey+R), type regedit, press Enter
In the left pane, click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to highlight it
Click File | Load Hive...
Browse to X:\Windows\system32\config
Where X is the drive letter of the slaved drive.
Double click on SOFTWARE (the one with no extension. If your system is set to not display extensions, change the View to Details (last icon on the right), it will be the one with a Type of File)
In the Key Name: box type @Software
navigate to here:
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\[COLOR=Red]@[/COLOR]SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
In the right pane, double click the userinit item.
Edit this to read:
C:\Windows\System32\Userinit.exe,
Be sure to include the trailing comma and use the correct drive letter for your installation as seen when booted to Windows.
When done, in the left pane, click on @SOFTWARE
Click File | Unload Hive...
Click Yes to confirm.
Close the Registry Editor, and return the drive to the original system.
