RegEdit on files from another system
Posted on 2003-11-29
A friend of mine has his PC infected with a virus that prevents Regedit to run, in stead it asks for a location of a (deleted) worm.
I know more or less which registry keys should be deleted, but i can't run regedit on his PC.
I wonder if it is possible to copy the user.dat and system.dat to temporary directory on a clean system, and open those files with regedit (or maybe another registry editor) on the clean system, in order to remove the registry-keys that make the virus work, and then copy the cleaned user.dat and system.dat back to the original system.
