9. The Registry > 84. Hack Away at the Registry

Hack Away at the Registry

Here are eight great hacks that use the Registry to do their magic.

You’ll find dozens of Registry hacks sprinkled throughout this book, but to give you a sense of the breadth of the kinds of hacks you can accomplish using the Registry, I’ve included a wide-ranging sample of Registry hacks here as well.

Automatically Close Programs at Shutdown

When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you’ll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. Then you have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It’s a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn’t get error messages and wouldn’t have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer.
