if you can get into the registry on an XP client computer, is it possible to change access permissions for a user or group of users inside the registry? If so, what are the keys that a computer adminstrator needs to watch out for? Is it possible to beat the problem with a program like regcheck that keeps an eye on the registry for changes? Is it possible to actually disable registry editing? (I know you can disable regedit.exe but there are about 300 ways around it). Is there a way to get around having your permissions set to forbid registry editing?
