Terminal server user - registry editing

Hello,

I need help editing the registry for a terminal server user profile.
Back in the old NT4.0 Terminal Server days I used to launch regedt32 and load the users hive.  this doesn't seem to be an option in 2000 unless I'm missing something which may be entirely possible.

I simply want to edit a single registry key for a specific terminal server user.

Any ideas on how to get this done?

Thanks in advance

Still the same way: Make sure the user is not logged on, run regedt32, activate the "HKEY_USERS" window, choose "Load Hive" from the "Registry" menu, browse to the users profile folder, open ntuser.dat, enter "TempUser" (or whatever) for the name of the new hive, change the setting, unload the hive again.

Thank you very much - it had been awhile since I had done this and may have just missed something.  I'll be trying your suggestion shortly and awarding points if it comes through.
