Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Disabling games that come with Windows is an easy task that doesn't involve any adjustments to Windows' registry.
I want to disable the windows games, like pinball and minesweeper. How can I do this in Regedit? I've made a registry back up and everything, I just want to know what values to set and where to find them.
Wanna make sure people can't play games? Fair enough.
Playing games with the registry isn't needed though.
Rather digging around in the registry, how about just uninstalling the games? In Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, select Accessories and Utilities and press Details. Now deselect Games and press OK and/or Finish your way out. That should remove the games completely.
Without any risk to your registry.
