Use the Runscanner plugin, run the Remote Registry Editor shortcut it provides. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT isn't really a registry hive, it's just a shortcut to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes, which is where you will find the keys.
So I have a person whose PC got hijacked and the exe file handlers in the registry have been altered so no exe will run, I got a VistaPE boot on there with PERegistry Loader but have had no luck in being able to edit the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT of the system on the hard drive, anyone know how to do this?
But I hope you know a lot about what you are doing, because the organization of that section can be very complex and confusing. Have you tried Spybot Search and Destroy and/or MalwareBytes Anti-malware from VistaPE?
