    Neither of these work. You can’t “search for folders” in regedit, only keys, values, and data. Would it kill you to just specify the path?

  6. True, there are comedians that cuss a lot,
    but you got to earn that right before you do that. No matter what your field,
    it helps to know what you’re good at, but it also helps to
    recognize what others are good at. Brad Garret is a
    stand-up comedian but also well known for his acting career.
