The Windows 2000 Registry

For those new to Windows 2000, the Registry is where the Operating System stores most of its configuration data. Almost everything you do in the Windows 2000 GUI, is ultimately translated into an entry in the Registry. Fortunately, Microsoft allows Administrators the capability to edit the Registry directly to fine tune parameters and make some custom tweaks.  On the down side, haphazard edits to the Registry is the surest way we know to cripple a perfectly good system.
 DO NOT edit the Registry if you don't know what you're doing. And always back it up first. You've been warned.
