    Hi there

    Is there a list of all modified registry entries anywhere?
    The problem ist, here are several students, who crashed seb 1.8.2 and now the whole registry is broken and we don't know exactly which entries we have to change back.
    (if this question is already posed somewhere, I'm really sorry ;-))

    Thanks for helping!

    Hi, yes, we had some trouble with older versions like 1.8.2 since the installation was not very reliable. To fix this problem, please use the script "RegistryEnableAllBlueScreenButtons.bat", which should be contained in your downloaded seb_1.8.2_win.zip file after unzipping it with right mouse button and "Extract All…". If you click on this script with right mouse button, select "Run as Administrator" and enter your admin password, this script should reset the Task Manager etc. to its default values. If you don't have this .bat file, you can simply download seb_1.8.2_win.zip again from

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/seb/

    and unzip it using "Extract All…" into an arbitrary directory of your computer. The script contains the lines

    REG ADD    "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"   /v HideFastUserSwitching  /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"   /v DisableLockWorkstation /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"   /v DisableChangePassword  /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"   /v DisableTaskMgr         /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v NoLogoff               /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v NoClose                /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000000 /f
    REG ADD    "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v EnableShade            /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f
    REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\Utilman.exe"                            /f

    which show the Registry values changed by SEB. You could manually change them back by starting "regedit.exe" as an administrator, but this is  very awkward. Instead, just right-click on the .bat file and choose "Run as Administrator" and execute it.

    Let me know if this helps.

    Regards,
    Dirk
