Registry editing error !!!

when I type regedit in run the msg comes 'registry editing has been disabled by the administrator.'

wht shall i do know ???

Start->Run->type 'gpedit.msc' widout da quotes n hit enter. Now in da left pane. expand User Config->Admin Templates->System.
Now look for 'Prevent Access to registry editing tools' in da ryt pane. Dbl-clk it n set it to 'Disabled'.

Task manager disabled .. how to fix it ???

There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:

* Click Start
* Click Run
* Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
* In the Group Policy settings window
-> Select User Configuration
-> Select Administrative Templates
-> Select System
-> Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
-> Select Remove Task Manager
-> Double-click the Remove Task Manager option

And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

Watch Movies in Ms Paint !

Hey guys, did you know that you can REALLY watch movies in paint ?

Here's what you gotta do :

Open your favorite movie player and play the move (I played the .mpg format in Winamp)

Hit "PrintScreen", keep playing the movie in the player, dont stop it.

Open MsPaint.

Select "Edit>Paste" Or Hit "CTRL+V"

You can watch movies in Paint!

But there are no Pause, Next, Previous, Stop etc. buttons

Spead this fact to all your friends and show how COOL things you can do with Paint!
Experiment with other formats too, it doesn't play DivX , Flash movies, etc. Microsoft hasn't revealed this i think. MsPaint is GREAT

Create a new DWORD value NoDrives and set its value as 3ffffff

NB:Restart the computer 'n' see the diff.

How to lock any windows drive ?

Start & Run and type Regedit to open Registry editor
Browse HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
Create a new DWORD value NoViewOnDrive and set its value as

2^ (Alpha Number of Drive Letter-1) where Alpha number are simple counting of alphabets from A to Z as 1 - 26

For example: to lock C:\, Alpha number of C is 3 so 2^ (3-1) = 4 (decimal value)
To lock more drives, calculate the value of each drive and then set sum of those numbers as value
To unlock your drive just delete the key from the registry.

Note :U must restart ur pc to get expected result ...
