Go to a command line and enterThis allows you to look at (and change) all the entries in your registry. Mandatory warning: if you don't know exactly what you are doing, do not change anything in your registry. Really really bad things can happen if you make a mistake.

The regedit program is found at C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe

D A N G E R !

Even people who know what they are doing with the registry have been known to TOTALY hose their machine to the point that the only hope for it being anything other than a boat anchor was to completely reinstall the OS.

No offense, but if you have to ask where 'Registry' is, you do NOT want to mess with it.

May I ask why want to know about the registry and what you want to do? There may be an easier, safer way to do it.

Hi Linda Walters,

I would like to go to my registry because when I open my laptop I get this message saying I need to undock if I am not plugged. If you give me the path I will follow it religeously. And also my cursor has been freezing lately. It freezeez after going crazy over the screen.

Welcome to the Ranch

You may have a long wait for Linda Walters to reply, since her post was in 2006.
You almost certainly do not want to alter anything in the registry. I don’t know what to suggest, but you haven’t given us enough details. What is the message? Copy it exactly.
And I don’t know what to suggest about cursors. Where does it freeze? Do you mean the mouse arrow?
I agree. Here's the link:
