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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
