9781558284944: The Windows 95 Registry: A Survival Guide for Users

"Clear writing, informative graphics, and a well thought-out focus make this the Registry book of choice for power users."—PC Magazine If you need to locate sources of problems, customize your Windows 95 computer, or just want to better understand how your computer is organized, then you need to work with the Registry. Unfortunately, the Windows 95 Registry brings the era of black-box computing back to life. And, despite all its power, flexibility, and immense capacity for causing problems. Microsoft provides little if any support for the Registry. It truly takes an expert at your side to safely navigate through the maze of HKEYS, subkeys, data strings, and programming pitfalls. The Windows 95 Registry is your guided tour into the depths of the Windows 95 Registry. Read it carefully before you open the hood, for Microsoft's own cautions about the Registry must be taken very seriously. Altering Registry information can damage your system configuration beyond the point of a simple repair by re-booting. With John Woram at your side, you can proceed with confidence and easily fix whatever Windows 95 throws your way. http://www.idgbooks.com

Review:

The Windows 95 Registry isn't just for professional system administrators. John Woram's The Windows 95 Registry: A Survival Guide for Users provides an excellent end-user's introduction to the registry, how to work with it, and what it can do for you.

The book kicks off with two hefty chapters that provide detailed information on the structure and purpose of each registry key and an introduction to Regedit, the registry editor. This is potentially dry stuff, but the author makes clear the practical purpose of each key and why you would want to know about it. The next chapter goes into far more detail on using Regedit for customizing Windows 95, with a concentration on customizing the look and behavior of the Windows shell. Following is a section that details the instructions for backing up, restoring, and comparing registry versions. This section is oddly placed and readers will want to absorb the information it presents before attempting the practical examples in the previous chapter. Two detailed chapters on troubleshooting a corrupt registry and interpreting registry error messages round out the book.

Professionals will probably want a tutorial that concentrates more on hardware, networking, and user administration aspects of the registry. However, this book gives power users what they want most--a clear overview and detailed instructions for shell customization and troubleshooting.
