I can't change computer description

Hello all,

I have one problem. I can't change computer description here. I am running Windows 7 (7600) with administrator account.


I cant write there, it it doesn't allow me, and not showing Text Select mouse only shows me Normal Select mouse.

Any help would be appreciated!

Does this work?
Change the registry value HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters\srvcomment.

But apart from if this will work or not, isn't it very odd he can't type there?

I'll do a run through gpedit. It may be in there. If it is, then it may be tweak related. Apply a tweak here, see an unanticipated effect over there.
