  4. That for me is not a good reason to change registry. Unless you know exactly
    what you are doing, do not change registry keys !!!

    But if it is only for a test, why don't you go ahead and do it !... oh, make
    sure you have a backup, because if you get unexplainable behavior you might
    want to restore or re-install your system.
    what about it ?


    Bottom line, you just do not go and change registry keys.
    I still do not understand what you are trying to accomplish here, or what
    your application is supposed to do with this registry key.

    Do not change it, or prepare to reinstall your system if things do not go as
    you would like it.

    rgds,
    Edwin.
