  • Registry Editing:

    Ok, I am at a loss. I have googled this, checked various other sites...and no one has an answer. Hopefully one of you guys won't mind answering me, because I am at the end of my verberbial rope.

    I went to a site for a friend to look up the lyrics for a song(specifically "A Favor House Atlantic" by Coheed and Cambria) and a freaking IST bar downloaded onto my system, even though I was using FireFox. I have removed the bar, and edited the registry to remove all the 'fingers' manually, plus used an arsenal of spyware removers including 'HijackThis'. No spyware I can find is on my computer yet I still have these entries in my registry, which do not allow editing or deletion:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\ LEGACY_TBPSSVC
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\ LEGACY_WINTOOLSSVC
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\R oot\LEGACY_TBPSSVC
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\R oot\LEGACY_WINTOOLSSVC

    These were part of that toolbar and I would like to get rid of them. I am open to any ideas you guys have.

    Boot this and use the Registry Editor function. You should be able to find the program in other *nix based attack/recovery CDs as well if you have those handy.

    Good luck

        It has been a while, but I think that Win NT/2000/XP/NT* has two different registery editing tools. "regedit.exe" and "regedt32.exe" and use of regedt32.exe gives you extra options like control to set/remove permissions to various trees within the registry. If a tree/section is set to "read only" or no permissions to delete, then regedit.exe may not allow deletion until the permissions on that section/branch of the registry tree are altered with regedt32.exe.

          Yeah, that worked. I had to go into "Security" then change the security to me only, and give myself all accesses per file, but regedt32 worked nicely.

            WooHoo! I got an answer right! Oh crap. I helped someone with windows. I feel so dirrrrrty. ;-)

            Lots of people don't know the differences between regedit.exe and regedt32.exe. Inability to remove trees/keys/feilds in windows is a key sign that regedt32.exe should be used.

              I always new there was two of them... but never knew why(or cared to find out heh)
              I figured one had more funtionality '16' or '32' more 'funtionality'.... anyways... Thanks.
              There is a windows live cd called Boot PE or something like that... I'm pretty sure you can use that to edit the registry. But of course... always go with the linux live cd/floppy when possible...

                Nah, I did not know there were two, I just never bothered to check out all the 2k goodies. If I had known about regedt32 before I would have used the two in combination.

                I dual-boot Win2000 Pro and Linux Mandrake, so don't feel so dirty.

                I use my Windows for gaming, designing stuff on AutoCADD and other various things that are just simplier to use on MacroHard's O/S.

                I use my Linux for decompiling various programs to find out how they work. My favorite thing to do, actually, is go to websites where people call themselves "hackers" that put out "hacks" (otherwise known as a program that exploits a game in some manner. Aimbot or ESP or Wallhack, you get the idea) but they really are "cheaters" with some programming knowledge, download their hacks, decompile them to see how they did their work then submit it to PunkBuster(Anti-Cheating software). Keeps the game nice and fair, and the asshats nice and banned.

                Something I still find funny about Linux/Mandrake is the fact that Mandrake Root was believed to have magical properties in many cultures, and now when you use Mandrake OS, you go to Root to do things. I just find it a humerous irony. I AM considering changing my Mandrake to Linspire, formerly known as "Lindows" but with the lawsuit from MS, they were forced to change their name. I might single boot with that.

                  In my personal opinion.... mandrake and esp. "lindows" are not much better than windows.
                  I think my reasons are pretty sound..I also think that they are obvious enough to not need explaination (esp on these forums).

                      Ironically enough, 10 minutes before I read this my brother sent me:
                      http://www.tuckermax.com/shittiesthookup.html
                      which just goes to show, assholes are NOT, in fact, like opinions. Oh yeah, I know I suck for that link.

                        Dude, I am a med-tech. I know about colostomy bags. People are born with assholes, but yes...some get sewn shut for various medical reasons.

                        I will tell you what. Go to a nursing home. Find a person with a colostomy bag and smell that sauce. It will not only wake you up, but you will not be able to get the smell out of your nostrils for hours. I carry a bottle of vicks just for that reason.

                        She still has an asshole, it is just NOT useable at that current time.
