Registry Fever With Visual Basic - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

The registry is an indispensable part of the Windows architecture. Most of the programs are so dependent on the registry that if by accident you delete or edit an important entry, your programs may function abnormally. I advise you to take necessary backup before you start playing around with your registry.

Well, that's all for this article. I hope that you've learnt a thing or two about the Windows registry.
