      Hi, go to Start –> Run –> type regedit and hit enter
      In the registry, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun.
      On the right side, right click –> New –> string value and select a name for this value and enter tha path for the software you want it to be started at windows startup.
      Enjoy

      Tip 1

      Download Registry Fix tool to enable disabled registry access. Click Fix Registry and your registry access is enabled immediately.

      Download here..

      Tip 2

      Following tip is extremely helpful, and usually necessary in helping to rid your computer of a viral infection, which has disabled your registry access. Many virus programs will intercept registry access, based on its original file name (regedit.exe), and prevent them from running. The alternate copies of theis file will not encounter this problem.

      Simply navigate to the C:Windows and locate regedit.exe .

      Once located rename regedit.exe to some other name (e.g. new_reg.exe) and double click the file to run.

      If you wanna edit start up programs go to run & type “msconfig” & hit enter…
      on 2nd last tab it will be start up…

    How can I change running applications of given extension? (only by using regedit.exe)?
    For example, when you run *.txt, “notepad.exe” is executed.
    I want to change this, like “wordpad.exe” for *.txt files.
    I know I can do this in File Types tag of “Tools/Folder Option” of the window.
    But I want to know how this is stored in registry.
    How can I change this only by using “regedit”?

    I want to enable registry editing on a win 98 machine. when i try to” regedit.exe” it’s it has been disabled
    I try to edit the registry but it says “Registry editing has been disabled by the administrator”

    is there any other way of getting into the registry beside “regedit.exe”?

    How to create a boot disk for Vista to open regedit.exe?
    I want to backup my computers registry and put on a cd. I know how to do that, but I want the cd to be a startup cd, so if I boot my computer with it in the disk drive, it will run regedit, allowing me to restore the registry backup, if need be. Thats what Im not sure how to do.

      you can make a shortcut. either find regedit.exe in your harddrive and make a shortcut by right clicking on it, or change an existing shortcut to aim for that file.

    How can I fix my regedit and .exe problem?
    I have a laptop running on Window’s Vista. I got a virus the other day, which I’m fairly certain was removed. But now, I can’t run .exe files (Which means most of my programs aren’t working!) And I can’t get into regedit because it’s a program (meaning it ends in .exe) So I can’t seem to fix it. Any step by step solutions or info that can guide me in the right direction? Thanks.
