hello all, i've been wondering this for a long time, and have not been able to find an answer to my question on the internet. what i want to know is which has priority over the other, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE list or the HKEY_USERS/me$ ? For example, if two keys in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE list and the HKEY_USERS/me$ list have different settings, which one will the computer chose to use?

I believe that the order is the same as profiles, and with those I believe that the machine takes precedence. You could test by saving the key to a file and then deleting it from the HKLM. Then check the actual setting to verify a difference or not. If different, then that key did take precedence and you can restore it from the file you saved to.
