    I don't understand what this is doing, Ben. The RUN command can execute any action or exe file on your system. The only way to stop something from being executed with RUN is through permissions or by deleting the file from the computer.

    So what does this do?
    Need to re-register ASP.NET?
    C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v#VERSIONNUMBER#\aspnet_regiis -i

    (Edit #VERSIONNUMBER# as needed - do a DIR if you don't know)

    The run dialog box in Windows is usfull as you can run any program by typeing it in, but what also you can do is say you had a program called MicrosoftWord.exe you can shorten it by just haveing to type in msw.exe as long as msw.exe is in the App Paths in regedit.

    App Paths are stored here so you see what i mean.

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
