I have a problem loading some software. I need to get into regedt32 to alter
some settings before it will launch.
However when I open the folder via 'run' it flashes up for only half a
second and then closes before I can get to it.

Anybody know why??

Possibility

Why does Task Manager, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT disappear while opening?

Curious.... Select RUN from Start menu, then just type in
REGEDIT

Regedt32 only just calls Regedit.

Hi David, I knew there was a reason both worked, just couldn't remember why.
