Where can I find the files edited when you run RegEdit?

If I think I understand what you are saying, the registry is kept in %SystemRoot%\System32\config whilst individual users settings are located at %UserProfile%\Ntuser.dat.

If I have got the wrong end of the stick here, please rephrase your question and I will be happy to help.

Don't forget %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat for per-user file associations (HKCR\Software\Classes). –  grawity Feb 20 '10 at 20:32
