    I have win xp pro on 2 computers, wireless on the one, other cat5 into my router. I was looking up some interesting stuff on the internet, and I found some stuff on registry tweaks. A thing I found says to go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/Explorer and says if you add a reg_dword NoDesktop and put it's data as 1, your desktop is disabled. Anyways, I tried it, and indeed it was. On my wireless PC I run radmin. I telneted the computer and added the registy key "reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/Explorer /v NoDesktop /t REG_DWORD /d 1". I then query'ed it and it showed it was there. so i rebooted the pc...nothing different happened. tryed adding it from the actual computer...it worked. am quite confused...thanks in advance for the help!
