Essentially my problem is locating if one or both strings exist, if they do delete them, then insert the text from the textbox.

I need to search the autoexec.bat for two strings.

SET COMPUTERNAME = something
SET USERNAME = something

If either one of these is found delete them, then insert the text from a texbox that contains:

SET COMPUTERNAME = %computername
SET USERNAME = %username

I can read the computername into a variable, and the username into a variable and then place the above statement into a textbox. I also have the autoexec.bat into a rtf box.  I am using the Commondialog to retrieve the filename, place it into the rtf box, and then use the CommonDialog to save the file.

Use RichTextBox, It has a find method.
this method selects the appropriate words found. the last thing you have to do is to put the string you want in the SelText property.

Hope this helps
