    Regedit Same Address Different Keys


    What am I missing. I have two instances of Regedit running and I go to the same address but different keys show in each instance. How is that even possible? It is like two different machines and two different registries, but both instances of Regedit are from the same machine. I must be overlooking something. Any explanation for this issue is most welcomed.
