W2K registry edit

Specs: Windows 2000
I am trying to modify the BootExecute entry in the registry back to its default after changing it to autocheck autochk /k:C* (how did I do this?)

I think the default value is autocheck autochk *

Any ideas how to do this as when I right click on Modify it is in numerical?

Hkey_local_machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\ BootExecute should be of type REG_MULTI_SZ, not a numerical type. The value should indeed be "autocheck autochk *". (Have a look at this knowledgebase article.) I would be inclined to delete the key and recreate it with the correct data type and value. But the usuual caveats about editing the registry apply - make sure that you have a backup and you do this at your own risk.

Thanks for this - I actually had to do this using 'Edit Binary Value' using Alphanumeric in the Registry.
