Interesting problem finally
Posted 21 February 2006 - 05:46 PM
I set out to take it down, and now I'm intent on success lol
I'm still learning on the registry and windows, and this could be a self-set test if you will...

there is no valid registry setting for this in HKLM
No CD is a per-user setting group policy object
Did you create a new user and it did not work there? Is your registry corrupt and it is recreating it from a restore point?
What your doing does not remove cd-burning, it simply restricts access to it based on the user

as for the HKEY, i read everywhere that there needed to be one there, so... my bad

If you remove the HKLM key, and just leave the other, does it re-enable
This is not a network computer that hooks up to a domain where it could be getting group policy objects, is it?

The problem is also intermittant, just like the drive letters were. But, I'll start by taking off the HKLM , and we'll see if that changes anything.

HKLM has the value set to zero, while HKCU has it set to 1
obviously something has to give, the two settings are contradictory
Now I'm trying with only the key in HKLM, nothing in HKCU
I'll tell you what happens.
PS.. the drive letter problem is resolved. over a week with no switchie back.

After deleting the key in HKCU, and leaving just the one in HKLM, the cd burning option hasn't shown itself anymore. And, the drive letters have respected their order scince I've uninstalled Sygate Firewall.
I want to thank you gerryf, you've been a really really big help.
