Windows® 7 Registry Protection
Are you inquisitive about registry in Windows 7 system and need some tips?
Windows 7 is the latest operating system developed by Microsoft which is mainly used on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, netbooks, Tablet PCs, etc. Registry is the central hierarchical database used in most of the operating systems in order to store information which is necessary to configure the system for one or more users, applications and hardware devices. For protecting important registry keys from being manipulated, you can use a small program called Registry Prot. In Windows 7, folder protection will not occur by means of passwords or user authentication. There are a number of third-party tools, such as WinRAR or WinZip which helps you to compress and provide password to protect a folder.
The following are the things to be kept in mind while using Registry Editor in windows 7 system:

Launching Registry Editor
For launching the Registry Editor, you need to select 'Start' and click on 'Run'. Then, type 'regedit' into the 'Run' box and press 'Enter'. Then, you will get a User Account Control dialog box. Here you need to enter your credentials to continue and this will enable you to view, modify, add and delete Registry settings. Also, the Registry Editor includes a search feature to help you to find settings and also it helps you to export and import features that enable you to save settings to and from a text file.
While navigating key pane
Registry Editor is mainly used for locating a subtree, key, subkey, or value, for adding a subkey or a value and for changing a value. In addition, it is also used for deleting a subkey or a value and renaming a subkey or a value. The navigation area of Registry Editor displays folders that represent a predefined key on the local computer. You need to increase the size of the Keys pane in order to see them properly. You can do this by using your mouse to click and drag the split bar to the right. You need to select View, Split alternatively and use the right-arrow key to adjust the split bar position and finally press 'Enter'.
Many serious issues can occur, if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using any another method.
