Hi All

I'm looking for a free tool to scan specific values in a remote PC registry and possibly change it (not mandatory)  - is there a tool that does this?

You can connect to remote registry using your local registry editor and modify it.
Open regedit and there should be an option in edit menue to connect another computer.

well, actually I'm looking for a combination of both solutions...Remote Registry Cleaner is a great tool but it only scan for problems and offer to fix them, while connecting via registry editor it good but you need to do it for every PC you want to check.

What I'm looking for is a tool that I can tell him to scan a specific registry value...for example: EnableFirrwall and check and see if this value is set for "0" or "1"

Correct but to one PC at a time...it cannot scan the entire network.

that will never work although you can say change reg keys over the entire domain by group policy or a vb script / powershell

If you are sure about reg settings and don't want anyone to change them or auto- correct, Group policies can do it for you.
