REGISTRY EDITOR TRICKS

Before going for this u need to know what is registry editor or regedit.

WHAT IS REGEDIT?
Regedit, You may be thinking Regedit, what the hell is that......? or if you have a reasonable amount of experience with computers u should surely experiment with regedit or registry editor

Regedit is basically a program that lets you edit ceratin values in your computer (short for "Registry Editor"). BEWARE, DON'T JUST PLAY AROUND IN REGEDIT, SOME THINGS CAN SERIOUSLY HARM YOUR COMPUTER IF CHANGED OR REMOVED. You can do really cool things with it such as remove buttons on your computer .e.g remove the shutdown option or make a message appear at startup.

Before you do anything you will need to know how to access the program:

->So first go to your start menu
->Then click run
->Now type "regedit" without the quotes
->Regedit should open (if it doesnt contact me)

BUT BEFORE EDITING ANY THING IN REGISTRY EDITOR U NEED TO BACK UP THE REGISTRY

ADD ADMIN USER TO WELCOME SCREEN:
Start the Registry Editor Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList \

Right-click an empty space in the right pane and select New > DWORD Value Name the new value Administrator. Double-click this new value, and enter 1 as it's Value data. Close the registry editor and restart.

KILL PROCESS IMMEDIATELY:
When logging off, you sometimes get an “End Task” dialog prompt, indicating a program that doesn’t shut itself down. You can suppress the prompts and have Windows kill these programs automatically when you log off. In regedit, find key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop Look for the value AutoEndTasks, and change it from 0 to 1.

UNBLOCK REGEDIT AND COMMAND PROMPT(CMD):
{Save this file is a .reg file then execute it}

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesWinOldApp]
"Disabled"=dword:0
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem]
"DisableRegistryTools"=dword:0

OPENING EXPLORER FROM MY COMPUTER:
By default, when you click on the My Computer icon, you get a display of all your drives, the Control Panel etc. If you would like to have this open the Explorer:
1. Open RegEdit
2. Go to
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\ {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\ Shell
3 . Add a new Key named "Open" if it does not exists by right clicking "Shell" and selecting new.
4. . Add a new Key named "Command" by right clicking "Open" and selecting new
5. Set the (Default) value for the Command Key to "Explorer.exe" or "C:\Windows\Explorer.exe"

HAVE FUN :-)
