    Probably in two hidden files called System.dat and User.dat in the Windows folder.

    Quickest way to get to your registry in Windows 95 and above is to do the following:

    Windows button + R > type regedit

    The registry will automatically open in front of you.

    He knows that, he just wants to know where it is on the harddrive so he can make a virus to destroy it on people's computers...
    ...right?

    ...no?

    Oh well... I'd have to agree with BobS on this one. That's "probably" where it is.

    That and a few other files. Look at a registry backup to find out. They're usually stored in \windows\sysbckup (it's a hidden folder).
