Useful Registry Hacks

Before keeping hands in registry if your regisrty is disabled first enable it
Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator:

Whenever I open Run and type regedit and press enter a message prompt appears saying "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator".

Method 1:
You can use a simple UnHookExec.inf to enable registry editing.
1. Download UnHookExec.inf
2. Right click on the downloaded file and select install.

Method 2:
For enabling you can also use the remove restrictions tool(RRT) by,  if the method 1 doesn’t work for you.
1. First Download Remove Restrictions Tool
2. Run and check the registry tools and click apply.

Method 3:
If the above two methods does not work for you , you can also try executing a small vbscript which I found on major geeks.
1. First Download EnableRegEdit.vbs
2. Double click on the downloaded file to enable registry editing.
I hope at least one of the above will help to fix the trouble.

Display legal notice on startup:
Wanna make your friends afraid by displaying about there secrets while Windows start? Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a secret message about him at system start up.
Goto Start–>Run–>Regedit

"legalnoticetext"="enter your message text here"

Automatic Administrator Login:
We all know Windows Xp is not a secured OS as Linux.Well here’s the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts you in to the administrator account.
Goto Start–>Run–>Regedit
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Remove Shutdown Option:
Wanna play with your friends by removing the shutdown option from start menu in their computer.
Goto Start–>Run–>Regedit

GPEDIT.MSC And Autoplay:
A great tweaking file that comes with XP is gpedit.msc.
Go to Start -> Run–>gpedit.msc and press enter.
This is effectively the Policies Editor, and it comes in handy often.
For example, if you hate CD autoplay and want to permanently disable it, you can use this tool to do so.
Just run gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System.
In here you can see the value ‘Turn Off Autoplay’. Right-click on it and then click ‘Properties’.
