This article lists resources for the Windows 95 and the Windows NT 4.0 registry.

NOTE: Editing your registry entries could result in permanently disabling your operating system. Before editing the registry you should first backup the registry files. With Windows 95, you should make copies of System.dat and User.dat, both of which are hidden files in the Windows folder. With Windows NT, you should create an updated Emergency Repair Disk.


The following are resources for editing and modifying the Windows registries. Titles listed in this article do not constitute an endorsement by Microsoft.
