Yep, I know regedits are NOT recommended, and I know to back up my registry before messing around in there. But what I'm wondering is if you folks familiar with the registry can tell me if the regedit itself appears to be relatively safe. Thanks!
Remember REG TWEAKS CAN RENDER YOUR SYSTEM INOPERABLE!
Think of it like working on an engine in a car. That is in essence what the registry is. Windows engine.
You dont mess with your car unless you know what you are doing, right?
Same applies to the registry!
Regedit is relatively safe. IF used correctly. However, use all registry tweaks at your own risk!
Thats one of the main points I got rid of IE7, still I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon, I've spent ages altering things in the registry and know quite a few things about it now, I find thats the best way to learn.
