Microsoft Tweak-o-matic

Never thought that the same company that gave us Steve Ballmer would also employ the guys who wrote this little gem:

Lol, how did that get approval?

Warning: Donít ever change a value in the registry. Ever. We know we just told you to do that, but would you jump off a cliff if we told you to? Donít ever change a value in the registry. Donít even say the word registry. We know a guy once who said the word registry, and three days later he was hit by a bus. True story. As a matter of fact, you shouldnít even have a registry on your computer. If you suspect that you do have a registry on your computer, call us and a trained professional will be dispatched to your office to remove the registry immediately. If you accidentally touch the registry, wash your hands with soap and water and call a doctor. Do not swallow the registry or get it in your eyes!

If you do it correctly, changing the registry is perfectly harmless. At the same time, however, itís true that there are certain values in the registry that should never be changed. In fact, changing them can pretty much wipe your computer out, once and for all. Itís like working on the bomb squad: if you snip the right wire, the bomb is defused and everything is fine. But if you snip the wrong oneóBoom! You just created Microsoft Bob!

Um, not that weíre saying Microsoft Bob was a bomb or anything.

So, is it possible to snip the wrong registry wire using Tweakomatic? We donít think so. Weíve tried to steer clear of registry values that, if changed to an incorrect setting, could cause a fluctuation in the space-time continuum and destroy the universe as we know it. (Something that looks bad on your annual performance review, as we Scripting Guys know from painful experience. Well, you guys did the Scriptomatic, and that was good. But you also destroyed the known universe, and that wasnít so good.)
