    Default help with registry editing

    The following is a .reg file I created to semi-secure my local computers from inside users... the only one that worked was the last regedit to disable the start button. Can you review this and tell me what I'm doing wrong so I can correct it and use this.

    Here's the file:


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ;Disable Control Panel
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoControlPanel"=dword:1


    ;Disable Right Click
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]
    "NoViewContextMenu"=dword:1

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]
    "NoViewContextMenu"=dword:1



    ;Remove My Computer From Desktop (No Desktop Items)
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    NonEnum]
    "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:1

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    NonEnum]
    "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:1

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    NonEnum]
    "NoDesktop"=dword:1

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    NonEnum]
    "NoDesktop"=dword:1


    ;Disable Recycle Bin Properties
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]
    "NoPropertiesRecycleBin"=dword:1

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
    Explorer]
    "NoPropertiesRecycleBin"=dword:1


    ;Disable Start Button
    ;Delete Previous Entry

    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]

    ;Re-create with new name

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{-5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]
    "Menu Band"=reg_sz

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32
    ""=reg_expand_sz:%SystemRoot%\system32\browseui.dll

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32
    "ThreadingModel"=reg_sz:Apartment

    Is this a business machine ?

    Sounds kind of funny me.

    I think we will wait to hear from you first.

    Hi

    I'm also curious what you hope to achieve with this...

    Why not just give them access to limited accounts ... no right click & disabling the start button seems a bit drastic ...

    For the first one, you are in the right location but you have the wrong name for the value ...

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Create a new VALUE...

    choose: 'DWORD (32-Bit) Value' Name the new value: NoControlPanel & set the value data to 1

    That's all I'm going to say for now ...
