    I would install the program because then you could always revert later should we change our attitude using the same program.

    I would use the registry edit to have full control over what is happening. No need to install a program if it isn't needed.

    Hi Gimbo! The registry is very scary for some users; but for advanced users, I agree with you!
    Good thread and good information!:winner:

    Before "REGEDIT'ing" -- be sure to create a system restore point in case of disaster.

    The Registry is not scary at all. You can have a lot of fun in The Registry on a boring day!

    Good point but I myself am a little unsure about "fun" in the registry....I remember years ago with an MS tech I had to agree on a recording that I was on my own and whatever happened I was responsible before he would continue helping me in the registry.

    I also like using the Registry,John. I feel at home there.
    Only yesterday a friend installed Windows7 on a SSD Drive and didn't set the Bios to AHCI first.
    To change it back after installation I had to do a DWORD Reg Hack before changing back to AHCI
    in the BIOS to prevent a BSOD. It had an old AMI BIOS.

    Hey John! I have a ball in the registry, every sense a dear friend showed me how to use it many years ago.
    If you're going to much in the registry, create a system restore point as you suggested or better yet a system image.;);)
    I use regedit every time I uninstall a program and clean it up with Search EveryThing.
    Welcome aboard John. CHF can use your knowledge. We haven't had any OP's with BSOD, but I'm sure we will have some in the future!

    I play in there all the time, and have done so since Windows 3.1 LOL. The first thing I do when I fresh install an OS on personal systems

    ~~~

    1. Create a restore point before any motherboard brand-GPU specific drivers just the bare MS default drivers
    2.Backup the registry at this point
    3. Create a restore point after drivers
    4. Backup the registry again
    5. Install programs check SSD trim
    5.Create restore point & Image
    6. Start OS registry tweaks I use about 10 of them - back that up afterwards
    7 Image the OS (main image)
    8. Install games
    9. Final Image.

    Sounds good IceMan, could you expound on your 10 registry tweaks out of genuine curiosity?
