Error Code 0x80070002

Microsoft Help was far from clear."Start in safe mode,then start Registry Editor(regedt32.exe. It did not say where to locate this.. so i use "RUN" but i did not find HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\cryptography\Provider
Am i looking in the right area & what exactly am i looking for. Talk about needle in a haystack.
