    Also, you can open the task manager and choose File > New Task (Run...)

    Task Manager opens automagically with Ctrl+Alt+Del *IF* you are running XP and not a member of a domain, and possibly some other scenarios.

    It's not XP. It's 98 (from another thread where he was asking about how to hide Network Neighbourhood).

    Open up notepad, type the following:

    Code:
    echo off
    start regedit
    end
    and save it as whateverthehellyouwant.bat. Double click it to run it.

    All that did on my box was open about 6 million cmd windows saying end isnt a recognised batch file operation. is there a reason for this?

    Is that a win98 or xp thing?

    echo off
    start C:\windows\regedit.exe

    this seemed to work better with xp.

    I dont know anything about writting batch files, before anyone has a go.

    Works for me since I like most Windows users have %systemroot% in my path, thus eliminating the need for C:\windows\. And as for end, end should be a valid command in all versions. I've included a picture to help relate the answer to how it works.

    You could also create a shortcut to the file on your desktop. There's a lot of ways to run things without the run dialog.

    Boredom has also taught me that you can go to most web browsers and type "file:///%systemroot%/regedit.exe" and you should get regedit. Whether or not this will work, depends on your security settings.

    Accessories ---> DOS Prompt. Type in "regedit" that's all
