Okay... My brother and I work together, and our machines have Windows 2000 installed. When we get bored, we screw with each other's computers...little things to annoy each other. Well this time he got me pretty good...he disabled my ability to right click. He has an admin account, but I don't. I assumed that he just used the NoViewContextMenu Key under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. But I looked, and no key exists (which is like null). I've resorted to the old logon.scr hack to enter the "unprotected shell", and gave myself full access to the registry. I read that I can't reset the Admin password with Net Use if using NTFS... Question 1: How exactly does NTFS get around those old security issues? Why was FAT so unsecure? Question 2: is there some other way to disable my right-click? This is asanine. It's like stealing someone's shoe. I tried to get a hint, but he just smiles and walks away. Argh!
