Can any of the MVPs tell me why MS has "rot13ed" parts of the XP
registry?
It is very difficult to edit areas of the Registry because of this.

I realise that Bill Gates thinks that the ordinary man is too ignorant
to configure Windozs to thier liking, However,what exactly is the purpos
of using "rot13" in the registry?

Also,
Can some one tell me how to view the:

$AttrDef
$BadClus
$BadClus:$Bad
$BitMap
$Boot
$LogFile
$Mft
$MftMirr
$Secure
$UpCase
$Volume
$Extend
$Extend\$Reparse
$Extend\$ObjId
$Extend\$UsnJrnl
$Extend\$UsnJrnl:$Max
$Extend\$Quota

Files and folders?
Or how to get them to show on my hard drive?
Thanks,

And stop using SMS shorthand words! A lot of people do not know what
"rot13ed" means!

Anyone that has any business being in the registry would know.

Because I like to know the reasoning behind the things, MS in thier
infinite wisdom, try to keep from the users of thier software.

Bill, don't know why, if you need to know what, you'll need to create an
account for yourself to download this utility.

Sorry Bill wrong link above, the one I mean to pass on...

http://r2.d2.hu/snf/system_tools/freeware_gpl/sysinfo_password_recovery_emulation_vnc_ntfs_registry_tweaker_hexedit.html

Scroll down to the X-setup program. It's more involved and will help you
view and edit parts of the registry. Need to pay for it otherwise just use
the evaluation version. Proceed with caution on some parts of the program if
you do use it.

My apple-logies for the previous post.

Hi Bill,

Well then, you have a great ways to go with that thinking, as we all would.
As for your broad statement, if MS didn't want you to know as much as you
wish to know, then you wouldn't have access to the registry at all.
Speaking for myself, I am grateful that we are allowed to go there and
tamper with things. :o)

Good luck!
