SYS.REG is an exported registry file *.REG is normally associated with REGEDIT, and so double clicking on one will cause REGEDIT to import the settings therein into your registry

SYS.REG is not a normal file, but something on your machine, or some site you've visited has dropped it on your machine, together with something that references it (perhaps a shortcut in the 'Startup' group) that forces it to be reloaded every time you boot Windows If you can find that, then you can remove it (and the SYS.REG file if you wish)

try this: First you must delete this line in the registry:


"sys"="regedit /s sys.reg"

Then you can definitely delete the file sys.reg

In this way windows will not search sys reg file anymore and all will work well


Click on Start-->run and type msconfig and press enter Go to startup tab and look for an entry relating to sys.reg and uncheck the box
