I need to find a string in a file (easy enough) and set the line that the string was found in as a variable.

set comp=%@word[0,%@line[list1.txt,%counter]]
set comp2=%@word[1,%@line[list1.txt,%counter]]
set comp3=%@instr[5,14,[2,%@line[list1.txt,%counter]]
set comp4=%@word[2,%@line[list1.txt,%counter]]
reg query %comp\HKU > tempkey.txt <this is the command and the file I need to search a string in.
S-1-5-21-1960230475-814316877 is the string in can search and find , but the line number moves from 5 to 7 depending on which pc I search on.

Just a thought ...
Code:
v:\> type waittest.btm
alias hosts if exist v:\hosts (ren v:\hosts hosts.xxx) else (ren v:\hosts.xxx hosts)
hosts
start /wait firefox http://google.com
echo FireFox has closed
hosts
unalias hosts


v:\> echo %@strip[^[^],%@word[0,%@execstr[ffind /K /M /L /T"unalias" waittest.btm]]]
6

v:\> echo %@strip[^[^],%@word[0,%@execstr[ffind /K /M /L /T"closed" waittest.btm]]]

it works and finds it and set the line number but it skips the first one it finds and selectects the second line
SET COMP5=%@strip[^[^],%@word[0,%@execstr[ffind /K /M /L /T"S-1-5-21-1960230475-814316877" TEMPKEY.TXT]]]

if you only need the output of REG QUERY to locate the line number you can pipe the output into FFIND instead of having to create a file first.
Code:
reg query HKU | ffind /klm /t"S-1-5-21-1960230475-814316877"

or to isolate the line number specifically:
set linenum=%@word["[]",0,%@execstr[reg query HKU | ffind /klm /t"S-1-5-21-1960230475-814316877"]
And FWIW, on my system I find the first match. I'm not sure how you are skipping it unless the file contents are not in the order you listed.
