    Easy? I'd say hard. I think you'll need some pretty good understanding about Windows mechanics the registry and Windows API. There's probably a fat book two out there that would be a good idea to read.

    I don't think Java would be the preferred language, even if you probably could use it. VB or C++ is my guess.

    yeah

    yeah it would be pretty hard, and i dont think even vb could do it cuz vb is very limited, ive seen what vb can do and cant do and basically cant cant do this, on the other hand ofcourse c++ can do it.

    I recon you should go with J++.

    The ui stuff will be easy peasy and getting to the registry from J++ is a dodle.

    If you need some help with accessing the resistry getting keys, values, subnodes etc I'm sure I'v got a few snippets of code that should be pretty easy to follow.

    mail me henry.c@bigfoot.com.

    VB can do most things, provided you link in the appropriate DLL files. Registry manipulation shouldn't be to hard. The tricky part is knowing WHAT to change. When you know this the rest should be fairly easy.
