Is there a way to obtain through writting a program that I can remotely get the computer registry quota percentage that is connected on a LAN ?

I have 50 pc's running windows 2000 running terminal services that have a registry quota issue, and this eventually gets to near 100% in which I have to re-image the machines which stinks.

Thanks in advance

Try this, save as vbscript file (.vbs).  Set 'strServer' to be server you want to check.

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strServer & "\root\CIMV2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Registry",,48)
for each objItem in colItems
      wscript.echo objItem.CurrentSize
      wscript.echo objItem.MaximumSize

Then calculate based on current and max sizes.  Hope it helps.
