    I would strongly recommend making use of PowerShell. PowerShell is a new feature from Microsoft which makes it easier for system administrator to do tasks of this nature.

    Please read more about PowerShell on the below URL

    Hope this helps.

    Assuming you are using WIndows 7 or Windows Server 2008, just type PowerShell in search and you will be able to start PowerShell.

    Once on the PowerShell command prompt you can type

    PS > cd HKLM:

    this will directly take you to registry key under HKLM
    then type

    PS > ls

    to see the listing of registry keys under HKLM
