The correct command is the one in the troubleshooting guide <0.5 wink>.

Which command: the command that follows the colon, i.e. "C:\Program
Files\SpamBayes\bin\outlook_addin\register.exe hkey_local_machine".  If you
installed SpamBayes somewhere other than "C:\Program Files\SpamBayes", then
you'll need to adjust it correspondingly.

What program/interface: whatever your preferred method is.  Yes, you can do
this in a DOS/Command Prompt.  You could also use Start->Run, or create a
shortcut to the exe, change the shortcut's parameters to pass the
"hkey_local_machine" and double-click it.  Or use various other methods.
Whatever suits you best.
