Windows to continues overwriting Registry?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I keep making changes to my registry manually, but the problem is, after I shutdown and turn back on, the keys change back to default. I have changed these keys before and I know that they work fine if you change it. I need some help, as these changes result in my XP drive to data drive.

Any way on how to force a permanent reg. change.

Hmm, let's give this a try:

Navigate to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\C urrentVersion\\Applets\\Regedit

Right click on Regedit, and choose "Permissions..." near the bottom of the context menu. Make sure that all of the Deny checkboxes are unchecked for each "Group or username" at the top (if you're the only user on the computer, then there might be just 4 entries: Administrator, Restricted, System, and your name).

Also be sure that all of the Allow checkboxes are checked.

Tip: If both checkboxes are checked for Deny, then uncheck the lower checkbox, and both checkboxes will become unchecked simultaneously.

When you're done, click on OK. These changes take effect immediately upon clicking OK.

This is all I can think of. It may work. After doing this, change what you want in the regsitry, and reboot. If it still reverts back, then there's something else going on, or it could be permissions for those specific keys (maybe?).

Also, if you want a very fast way to collapse every single tree, just check all of the Deny boxes (click on the upper box to simultaneously check 2 at a time), click apply, and then uncheck the Deny boxes again. And after that, make this key a favorite. Your favorites will temporarily disappear after clicking apply here. But after clicking on OK right after unchecking the Deny checkboxes, they will return.

I did try that. I did it first for the key that I was trying to set. Then did it for the root key. Neither seemed to work.

However, then at the same time, the entire RAID stopped working due to my Hard Drive, so I am wondering if that could have been a possibility? Maybe a write value wasn't working on the RAID hard drive.

Until then, thanks for the advice. I will be getting a new one maybe in the next week. Will try this again and find out if it could have or was the problem.

Yeah, I didn't think setting permissions for specific keys would work as setting permissions for that key I posted is the way to go.

But as far as RAID goes, that's way out of my league!

Think it may have been something with the raid, now it works fine.
Really odd though, I used the guide that I had made to do it. Oh well, won't worry anymore, unless I have more problems with it.


Thanks for the help 5CheeseLasagna, will rep for the attempt.
