Registry Changes won't stick

By McCabe ·
Undid NoNetHood and attempted to "unhide" certain drives and the changes I make won't stick. I tried the same changes on another system and they worked fine. I don't have a NoSaveChanges tweak in the registry so I'm not sure why I can't make them stick. Any ideas ?

It could be one of two things. By default the regedt32 utility opens in read only mode. Go to the options menu and make sure there is no check mark next to read only mode. The other possibility is that you only have read permission for the portion of the registry you're changing. Go to the security menu, select permissions, and make sure your user account has more than read permissions. Good luck.
