Hello All,
i have a problem, and am confused.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]

i want to enter the following entry into .reg from the .txt file tht it is saved in.
So after i rename it to .reg, it STILL remains a text file?!
Hoe is that possible, i dont see any option asking me if i want to merge this into the registry like i normally do.
Im using XP Pro SP3

ok, the smiley face comes up, but actually it is : D without the space.
Its a reg entry designed to block autorun.inf files from being executed in USB drives.
