    if my friend needs me to look at problems with his computer and he wants me to look in his registry is there a way he can send me a copy of his registry and do I need something special to open it up to look at it. Just wondering...thanks in advance

    he can export the registry as a text file from regedit (start, run, regedit). However, my complete registry as a .txt file exported is 130mb. So you might just want to export a certain part of the registry.

    You will just need a text editor to view the file.

    cheers, EJ
