Blocked Registry Editing

  1. Some computer has privileges and does not let me to edit any registry strings. So I was thinking maybe if I use a different registry program rather than the standard one supplied with Windows. The problem is that it cannot be a program that you install on your computer because any installed program needs to have a place in the registry which the computer (win 2000) does not let. So maybe there is some application which is not installed rather it runs on the computer and displays the entire registry and enables it to be edited?

    You try running regedt32 instead?

    No. I assume it would not work. Would it?
    See, my theory is that Windows 2000 does not let me edit registry files using their own registry. But maybe if I use a different program to edit these files it might work.
