PCSTATS Newsletter Tip Database Updated! - PCSTATS Newsletter Tip Database Updated!

The PCSTATS Newsletter tip database has been updated, check it out and tweak out your machine with tips like this...

This tip is for those who are paranoid about computer security. ;-) The 'Manage My Computer' option is very powerful, however in the wrong hands it can totally wreck a computer.

Disabling this feature is quite easy; first we need to load up the registry editor (Click Start go to Run and type regedit and press the OK button). From there follow this path HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Policies -> Explorer and create a new DWORD value with the title NoManageMyComputerVerb. Give it a value of 1 then exit and reboot your machine.

From now on, that particular computer user will no longer have the 'Manage My Computer' option. Do this to every user account you want to restrict.
