Hi guys,

reg query "hklm\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist" /s | find /i "S-1-5-21">> parent.txt

This gives me:

=========================== parent.txt
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist\S-1-5-21-1187487854-1727753276-2704374040-103101.bak
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist\S-1-5-21-1187487854-1727753276-2704374040-4229

But, when I then do:

for /f %%c in (parent.txt) do @echo %%c

I get:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows

instead of:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist\S-1-5-21-1187487854-1727753276-2704374040-103101.bak
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\profilelist\S-1-5-21-1187487854-1727753276-2704374040-4229

Any help greatly appreciated.
