Someone gave my computer a naughty name
Posted on 2002-07-20
I have just acquired a computer running W2k which the low-life owner gave an obscene name. I downloaded a little utility from PCMag called RegistryRobot which worked, but changed only HKLM\Software\MicroSoft\WindowsNT\
CurrentVesion\RegisteredOwner. It still appears in SystemProperties, ComputerName.
The registry has 10 or 12 more instances of the bad one. I can certainly backup the registry, and go thru it modifying them all, or some of them. If I should decide to change ALL of them, is there an easy way to do it globally? Like, export to an editor with a search and replace function? Or am I not fully understanding how to use Regedit?
