1) read the file in
2) parse file with e g scanf()
3) make the adjustments
4) dump the file

I''d say messing around with selective changes is far greater a hassle than taking on the entire INI file at a time, especially considering you have such a beautiful file layout (easy to scan). Another way would be counting bytes and such - you could write your own class for it or something, but I''ve heard of INI management utilities/libs out there so you might want to have a look in that as well.

Hope this helps,
Crispy
