Dumb question I'm sure, but do any of the Stardock apps mess with the registry?
I'm asking because I had downloaded a Win11 hack from somewhere else that messed with the registry. I tried to fix it which was idiotic since I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyway, everything blew up and I had to reinstall Windows. Now it's perfect again, but I'm paranoid about not doing anything that could screw up the registry.
I bought Object Desktop and I loved it so I want to download it again, but I just gotta make sure.
Very curious about the Registry Hack you used kb349248.
I am a Beta Tester for Themes and have to make changes to the registry all the time. I agree with the others, the registry is not for newbies but anyone can learn how to use it to your advantage.
Have you ever thought about making a backup using say Macrium reflect, it only takes about 10 minutes and makes a complete backup of anything and everything on your primary Hard Drive (mistakes and all). So make a backup(before you start) and learn a little about what registry keys you can use and those you should not, at least this way you will always be able to load the backup in less than 10 mins should something go wrong, it is like a complete copy, passwords, bookmarks, settings, even replicating any other file on your desktop too, just make sure you make the backup first, they say we can learn from our mistakes, and this is true, with a recent backup, making mistakes will not hurt as much while you are learning.
