Getting admin privleges with a registry hack?



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?


you will not be able to change registry permissions unless you are an administrator or a member of the admin group. if you had the ability to do what you are suggesting you would be looking at a major security flaw in windows xp / 2000.

even your current logged on user his registry is read only.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
