    I suppose you meant Deutsch which is total different from Dutch.

    mantra,

    You can do this from your Win7 DVD. Load hive.

    You can also access both Windows registries in TBOSDT using tbexplo.tbs.

    Most good registry editors give you the option to load registry hives, which are usually located at ..\Windows\System32\config for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE under the names DEFAULT, SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE and SYSTEM. The user specific hive is in the user folder under the name ntuser.dat. You load the hive you need to edit, edit it, unload it.

    I use Registry Workshop, which is excellent but unfortunately not free. For a free alternative, maybe try Raw Registry Editor. It should do what you want, but I haven't used it myself since I have Registry Workshop.
