I've never been afraid to modify my registry (not backing it up as often as i should). I always figured the worst thing that could happen is i mess it up completely and i have to format... and that's not the end of the world, i do it regularly anyway. The one thing you can be sure of is i have tried every edit and script before i post them, so they WILL work! Some registry hacks cannot be applied by script, i'm not sure why, but it has to do with the depth of the path, and what the script is trying to do. I have not posted any like this yet as they are a little more advanced, and i know some users will be less likely to try it if it means editing the registry directly.
