Control Panel - Enable or Disable - Vista Forums

Is registry setting of NoControlPanel 1 or 0? Set it to 0 (0=False, 1=True).
Fixed?

Lower part of pictue is screenshot of registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer ?

If so .... many other values there?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
ms config also listed there or subkeys?
