Locking a registry key

Posted: 01-17-2009, 05:28 PM

I want to lock a registry key for windows live mail. Its just the ke
that stores the location on the screen of the spooler or 'downloader' o
what ever its called (the loading bar that pops up when you clic
send/receive

Is there a way to lock the following registry key so that it cant b
modified? Perhaps using 'permissions'

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\SpoolerDlgPo

that doesnt virus your pc!

Registry keys are listed in the left pane of Regedit, and Names and their values are listed in the right pane.
So 'Windows Live Mail' is a key but 'SpoolerDlgPos' is a Name, ( with a certain value.)
I don't think you can set permissions on Names, only on Keys.
And changing the permissions of the ' Widows Live Mail ' key will probably screw something up.

Interesting... I am trying to remove a number of 'Symantec', 'Norton
360', and 'Norton Ghost' Registry entries in my Vista Ultimate 64-bit
Registry that keep either not being deleted or regenerate themselves.

Reading your thread answer here got me thinking that maybe these
Registry lines are locked? If so, how do I remove the lock...unlock
them or at least determine if that is what's going on in my case?

Thanks.

right click the item (is the left pane). Select 'Permissions' to see who can
do what.

WARNING you can really screw up your system if you make an error on changing
permissions! Sometimes you have to go up one level to change permissions as
they are locked to their parent.
