    I need a little better example.

    If I read it right that is pretty simple. First export the key then right click on the export and edit the reg file. Edit the key so it is HKLM instead of HKCU then just double click and it will import all by itself.

    Export key from HKLM and edit reg file with notepad. just change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    for example:

    save the file and double click on reg file
