Hey guys,

I've been trying to find on how to edit the policies through a batch file.
I believe it's possible to change it in the registry.
I can see the following if I export the registry.

[HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoViewOnDrive"=dword:00000004

I'm not sure if this is now set to enabled or disabled.
Can anyone maybe point me to a documentation for this? Or maybe help me out? :)

Regards,
Olrik

Just for future reference(as this will help you when dealing with registry restrictions when removing malware in the future), best bet is to just google for the name of the value, so in this case NoViewOnDrive. Most of the time the first link in Google will be to the Microsoft website with details about the default value and other things
