    I just wanted to know ==> where does the windows registry store its registry contents ??

    I checked the size of regedit.exe and it was some odd 200+ KB.
    I guess it is so because it is just an interface app.
    Where does it actually store the information ?

    I exported my registry and it came up to be a whopping 70+ MB :!: :!:



    And one more query !!

    How can I access the HKCU key of any other user account from the administrator account !
    I know I can do it by logging into the users account and see but I Just wanted to know how do i do it without that way !

    The physical files that make up the registry are stored differently depending on your version of Windows; under Windows 95, 98 & ME it is contained in two hidden files in your Windows directory, called USER.DAT and SYSTEM.DAT, while under Windows NT/2000 the files are contained separately in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config directory. You can not edit these files directly, you must use a tool usually known as a "Registry Editor" to make any changes ......
