Item description for Windows 2000 Registry Little Black Book by Anthony Sequeira...
Windows 2000 Registry Little Black Book, 2nd Edition is a concise and portable guide to configuration changes that can be made to Windows 2000 using the Registry. The book has been revised and updated from the successful first edition based on actual Windows 2000 implementations. It includes four important new chapters thoroughly covering registry tools, registry disaster prevention, registry programming, and MS Office. The book presents general networking information including protocols and interoperability, local and network printers, remote access service and security. It contains insight on COM+, Internet Information Server, Internet Explorer, MS Transaction Server, SQL Server, and MS Office. Plus, the book provides a tear-out quick reference card packed with valuable information.
Outline Review The great thing about the Windows 98 Registry is that it's a central location for settings and preferences information about the operating system and the programs that exist within it. The problem with the Registry is that the keys you need to locate and the values you need to edit often rank near the bottom of the intelligibility scale. This slender book explains many of the mysteries of the Windows 98 Registry, that repository of settings, preferences, relationships, and other key system data. Win 98 Registry Little Black Book tells what you can accomplish by altering Registry values and walks you through the relevant processes.
For example, this book can assist you in changing the registered user information if your company's name has changed. It can also help if you think the Documents entries in the Start menu constitute a security risk, or if you're unhappy with your modem's throughput and you suspect there's something you can do outside the standard dialog boxes.
It would be nice if this book included information on the Registry entries made by popular application software, such as the programs in Microsoft Office. But as it stands, Win 98 Registry Little Black Book is a fine resource for those who find themselves annoyed by some of Windows 98's default characteristics. --David Wall

Reviews - What do customers think about Windows 2000 Registry Little Black Book?
Problem Solver Jun 20, 2003
These "Little Black Books" are published by the same people as the Exam Cram books and they are very useful. I've got this one along with the Reducing TCO book. Both have come in handy for me. I recently got this Registry book out to figure out an authentication problem we are having on our network. I didn't find anything to fix our problem, but I ended up reading the Sys Admin and TCP/IP section and found a lot of good useful info in there. These books are set up for ease of use. The chapters are tabbed in black so you can find what you are looking for real fast. The Index is very comprehensive and it is easy to look stuff up. It has a quick reference pull-out sheet like the Exam Cram books have. The second edition has some updated information and an expanded index. We should probably be seeing a third edition soon. A third edition or a new one for Windows 2003. This is a useful tool for 2k Sys Admin types and OS power users.
could have fit on 20 pages Jul 9, 2002
This book could have fit on the front and back of a single page, laminated pamphlet.
Each entry in the book contains the exact step-by-step instructions on how to open regedit, how to reboot your computer after you've completed editing, etc etc. That wouldn't be bad had these instructions not consumed a whole page each. We're talking about 200 - 250 pages of paper in this book CONTAINING THE EXACT SAME INFORMATION (word for word).
Roots of the Windows 2000 registry. Jul 3, 2002
Hm, well i unlike most of the people with their "reviews" find this book very interesting and well written, this book can take you deep into windows 2000 registry, starting from changing settings of your keyboard and finishing with resolving networking problems through regedit. I got this book from a friend, now i think i'm gonna buy one for myself.
BEST REFERENCE BOOK ON REGISTRY Jun 17, 2002
This was the first book that I read concerning the Windows 98 Registry and could have stopped after finishing this book. The other books lacked the concise detail provided by this book.
This book provides what every computer reference book should but doesn't. Readable informative prose combined with detailed instructions clearly outlining how to accomplish any type of editing possible.
I am the caretaker for a computer lab at work and used this book on a daily basis at work and home. I finally purchased a second copy to cut down on wear and tear of the original. The book is a valuable tool and anyone working with Windows 98 on a daily basis should include this book in their library.
Excellent Reference For IT Implementer Mar 29, 2002
This book is written in such a way to give the reader maximum amount of useful information in a minimum amount of time. Each tip is included in a self contained section which lists all of the steps necessary to implement the tip. The reader is spared unnecessary information about underlying concepts and developmental theory. One tip that I utilized immediately was to disable that annoying animation everytime a window is minimized or restored. Another was speeding up the menus so when the mouse is moved over a menu, the submenu would appear very quickly. This book is a must for anyone supporting a network or end users.
