Remote Registry Viewer doesn't show what the local computer registry shows why is that?

CURRENT_USER in this case is the SYSTEM account (because you are connected to the Host which runs under that account).

If you want to access a specific registry key for a specific user you need to pick the user account first. In the Remote Registry Editor go to HKEY_USERS and select the user.

How can you tell what the user is... For instance my user is "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2567007518-49307528-3885852609-1425"

why isn't it the current user name?

And is there a easier way to tell?
