    hello,

    I am in serious danger of having to make a minor change to the registry, and
    am a bit nervous. I know that there is 'regedit' and I know how to start it.
    I will read some on-line articles 1st.

    Are there any 3rd-party progs which might be safer / easier to use ?

    Thanks

    Before making any changes to the registry, back up your registry: Run:
    Regedit. On the File tab (upper left) click on Export. Name your file
    (.reg will be the extension) and note the save to location. Click OK

    To be extra safe, create a restore point in system restore. If anything
    goes wrong, you have two backups to safely restore the registry.

    Good luck:)

    Thanks for the advice, I had intended to save the registry, but the restore
    point is a very good idea.
