In answer to a previous question on superuser someone suggested setting a registry key to read-only.
But when I look at the permissions there are four (but one of them 'RESTRICTED' I assume is irrelevant so I'll ignore it)
There's Me (I'm an admin)
There's Administrators (which I assume is the 'default' administrator)
I don't know which one of these to change to make a key read only (so that windows itself can't alter it unless I change its permissions back)
I don't seem to be able to change the permissions on anything but the 'RESTRICTED' user.
My goal is to stop windows from changing certain keys back to their default settings when the computer reboots. If it matters the specific keys I want to set to be unchangeable by windows are...
