    'cannot find the file 'regedit' (or one of its components) make sure the path and file name are correct and that all required libraries are available.
    How do I get into 'regedit' and what does the error message mean?
    Thanks for your help everyone.

    And if that's what you actually did, and the message still comes up, check whether you still have a file by the name of Regedit.exe sitting in C:\Windows.

    Good luck,

    AND, if the file is not there, I would be suspicious that you have a virus/trojan infection.

    Run a full virus scan with updated definitions.
