Find out which user is in HKEY_USERS

Sometimes you need to edit the registry for a certain user and you can’t locate it in HKEY_USERS because you don’t know the SID for the user.

I found this useful script which creates you a list of all users in the domain with their SID:

Credits to the author Ramesh Srinivasan of this useful script.

Edit the registry of a remote computer on a domain

I don’t know if it is a default setting of windows 7 but on our domain you can’t access all computers registry because a service is set to manual and not started. Of course you need to be Domain Admin to be able to run this steps.

First of all you need to start the RemoteRegistry service on the computer:
sc \\COMPUTERNAME start RemoteRegistry

After that you can access it like usually in regedit:
File->Connect to Network etc.

To be on the save side you can disable it again:
sc \\COMPUTERNAME stop RemoteRegistry
