accounts without having to log into them?

In regedit, load the user's hive (see "loading a hive into the registry")
in regedit help.

-Ensure that HKEY_USERS is selected
-Select File/Load Hive
-Browse to the user's profile directory, and select the NTUSER.DAT file
-Type in a key name to load it under (the username is usually good)
-You can now edit the user's registry under this key
-When you are finished editing, ensure that the key you loaded the hive
under is selected again, and then choose File/Unload Hive - this saves
the settings back to the NTUSER.DAT file.
-Make sure that you remember to do the last step above!

Rock,
Thanks for the useful link. It took a little browsing the site before I
found what I was looking for but I did find all kinds of other goodies
while I was looking. Kinda like shopping at Home Depot- I could spend all
day there. :)
Thanks again.
