Querying HKEY_CURRENT_USER on remote registry

I'm building an app which needs to query the IE history information on other computers around the LAN. This is located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TypedURLs.

However, I can only access the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_USERS keys when using RegistryConnect. Is there any way around this?

I know the history information appears in HKEY_USERS as well, but I'd need some way of knowing which HKEY_USERS subkey (eg {S-1-2-3-7-6 34554645645-3453455645... etc})relates to each username, so that I know which history files belong to which user.

Can anyone help?

I'm Not entirely sure about this but the user name seems to be located inside the subkey...

\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

inside the Value "Logon User Name"

But i'm NOT 100% sure on that.......
