Neat trick.

I was wondering whether or not you can undo the registry alteration or undo parts if the alteration.

Just asking in case i decide to undo the changes is all.

Ahh... Should have included that warning in first post itself.

Anyway,to undo the changes,navigate to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell

And under this,delete the following entries:

Control Panel
DevMgr
Software

You are using windows XP,right???Works perfectly with me.Just check whether the entries i mentioned in previous post are present in

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell

Or you can execute this this directly.Contains the same code posted above:

The code adds certain data to your windows registry.Since the command is decided the CLSID key,it will be displayed in the OS language,I guess.I can't be very sure since I haven't tried onm any PC exept english language XP.
