2003 server : Regedt and regedt32 question , do applications use this ?

are these only for human interface use???, It seems to me that a dll gets registered with REGSVR not REGEDIT. If you DELETE the 2 executables what happens >? Do you need it to install or run applications? What if you leave it with only the administrator and system to have rights to this?

They edit the registry. Probably could be deleted but you would not want to do that. Change the perms on them would be alright.

Post back what you find. They are the user interface for editing the registry which you may need at some point so keep them near.
