registry editing

regedit is a command to edit the registry.

My question is, if you have 2 HDD with both windows xp installed and wish to
edit the registry of another HDD, can this be done.

The reason for asking is, I have a computer which works fine and another
computer which was infected by a worm virus. I took the HDDrive from the
infected computer, Make it a slave of the good computer and then run the
virus scanner so that it will be cleaned. I then need to edit that infected
HDDrive registry. Can this be done?

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can edit an off-line registry, provided you know
exactly what you're doing. Make a backup of the registry
file before going ahead!
1. Run regedit.exe.
2. Click HKLM.
3. Click File / Load Hive.
4. Open the "System" registry file of your off-line Windows installation.
5. Give the baby a name, e.g. OffLineSystem.
6. Make your changes.
7. Unload the hive.
