"Why have a book about the registry? The simplistic answer is because one is
needed. Microsoft's technical support line does not answer questions that
pertain to the registry. They claim that users should not attempt to modify the
registry in any way because it can possibly corrupt their machine."
I actually killed a Win95 system once because I accidentally deleted the wrong
key. Everything you do in regedit is final! There is no undo.
Talk about user friendliness...
