About the book:

Windows 2000 glories--or suffers--with the characteristic that it stuffs virtually every important parameter controlling its own behaviour into a hierarchical index called the Registry. Not only the platform itself, but individual programs function according to variables set therein. But the Registry is to most an unassailable complexity.

Managing the Windows 2000 Registry, designed for the Windows 2000 single user and the administrator alike, dissolves much of the complexity, clearly outlining its structure, efficient use and the rationale behind the Registry. Of immediate use are tips and methods that stabilise Windows 2000 by securing the Registry, including how to back it up, restore it safely and handle various crises that will inevitably occur. Lucid, detailed instructions explain the operation of the various programs which comprise a tool kit which can be used to tailor the Registry and keep it fighting fit, including RegEdit, RegEdt32, the System Policy Editor, the Group Policy Editor and various utilities from the Resource Kit. Another section details how to build your own tools--programs and scripts primarily to monitor the complexion of the Registry (on the principle that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure). Practical examples of using Registry templates are provided in C++, Visual Basic and Perl. The section addressing widest interest is the fullest known publication of the meaning of undocumented subkeys within the Registry, along with advice and warnings about modifying them. --Wilf Hey
