    Regedit Delete Key

    Morning Guys,

    Got a stand alone laptop that i want to stop the user from seeing the wifi key, found out that i can do it in regedit, done it which is all good:


    1.Browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID{86F80216-5DD6-4F43-953B-35EF40A35AEE}
    2.Right click on the key
    3.Select Permissions
    4.Click Advanced button
    5.Select Owner tab
    6.Highlight Administrators group and then click OK
    7.Under Security, highlight Administrators group and set Permissions to Full Control
    8.Delete the key

    so how do i now export this so i could do it on another laptop if i wanted? i have deleted the key so their is nothing to export? Any ideas?

    Thanks Guy

    Find a laptop with the key.

    Export the reg key (as if you wanted to import the setting onto another laptop).

    Open the .reg file in Notepad and add a dash in front of the offending key e.g.
    Code:
    -HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID{86F80216-5DD6-4F43-953B-35EF40A35AEE}
    Run that reg file wherever you want to remove the key.

    More info: How to add, modify, or delete registry subkeys and values by using a .reg file

    Without it being on a domain, though, I have no idea how you can push it out without physically visiting each laptop, I'm afraid.
