Windows Registry Root Keys – most important keys in Windows Registry. 

As I noted earlier in registry are 5 root keys:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (HKCR), HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) ,  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) , HKEY_USERS (HKU) , HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG (HKCC) .

From the above mentioned, HKLM and HKU are the most important and the only root keys that windows forthwith on disk, while other root keys are links to subkey in HKLM.
