    hi
    i uninstalled acdsee pro 2.5
    but it left (the uninstaller) a lof of keys like
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\classes\acdsee pro 2.5.wav\
    i tried jv16 to delete them but it did not delete
    so i open regedit and i discovered that i have to change the authorization of these files
    but they are a lot ,and with regedit i should do manually one after one

    so
    is there an alternative regedit that let me change many authorization keys with one click?

    select many and change

    thanks
    i run xp sp3 32bit

    have a nice day

    The installer creates a shortcut on your desktop to Regedit PsExec. Just click on that and it will open regedit with higher than normal privileges.

    To use regedit normally, just do as you have always done. Either by using your normal regedit shortcut or typing regedit in the run box. The installation doesn't alter regedit in any way, it just allows you to open it with higher than normal privileges when you use the Regedit PsExec shortcut.

    Well, that's a blow. The hash you posted for the setup file is correct. I haven't received reports from anyone that it doesn't work. When you click on the shortcut, open Task Manager and see if regedit is running. It does take a few seconds to open regedit but only a few seconds. (Tested on XP, Vista, and Windows 7).

    Code:
    Start "" "C:\test\psexec" -i -d -s c:\windows\regedit.exe

    Glad you were able to delete the keys. You wouldn't be able to use PsExec with jv16 power tools.

    I've read that Registrar Registry Manager is good for deleting some stubborn keys. I haven't tried it but there is a free lite version at http://www.resplendence.com/downloads

    (I would be interested to know if anyone else has trouble installing and using Regedit PsExec).

    thank you so much
    by the way i did notice that with
    Code:
    Start "" "C:\test\psexec" -i -d -s c:\windows\regedit.exe
    the program does copy the files in the c:\windows



    (I would be interested to know if there is a program that tells me which are the stubborn key to delete)

    When you run PsExec for the first time using the batch file method (or by command prompt or by creating a shortcut), it creates a file called PSEXESVC.exe in the Windows folder. This is normal operation of PsExec. Should that file be delted for any reason, PsExec will re-create it again when it next runs.

    The Regedit PsExec installer creates that file in the Windows folder before running Regedit PsExec so that it can be removed by the uninstaller. I wanted to make sure that the uninstaller removed everything that was created by using Regedit PsExec.

    You run Windows, what's not :shifty: to trust? If it were me I'd stick with the Ramesh dwnlds.
    If on the other hand you wanted to see what's inside, I'd suggest JSWare's unpacker.

    Oh and - "Happy New Years to you too Mantra!"

    No, I think by default you don't have access to those. As I recall, XP Home'll require safe mode to take control.
