20 Comments on Hacking the Windows Registry

  1. When will linux get a nice registry like windows?

  2. i like how freely you use the term hacking

  3. Seems like that last bit where he disables registry changes could be used to make a network of computers allot more secure. Whereas normally anyone could simply click on a link and compromise their the network of computers.

  4. Can any one tell my how to open regedit without admin password/Admin Verification
     as our school computers are locked 🙁 …

  5. Love this playlist – Thanks Eli. Any chance of a more hacking based series in 2015?

  6. If you watch his head, his hands start to look like they were blue

  7. If my college has disabled cmd can i use this to reactivate it ?

  8. Thank you, Eli.
    You are a so good teacher that you could be here teaching programming (if you wouldn't mind).
    Referring to the REGEDIT… you really didn't tell what's the best way to avoid problems with hacking and all that dirty stuff.
    You could say: IF you don't want interference in your computer, then do ……(this) !
    Exporting that stuff to the Desktop… prevents problems ?

    Now… for a brilliant guy that you are… HOW do you avoid that stuff of unwanted advertising and browser hacking…. and all that shit, that put our computer fast as a turtle ?
    IF you please… you are in command !
    Thank you again, and keep here with us.

  12. using The.Matrix.Logic;
    Blue pill = damage computers
