  • HI, i do this but the ntuser file can not be load.

    1. Run regedit.exe
    2. Select HKEY_USERS and then click File>Load Hive...
    3. Navigate to your kiosk users settings folder e.g C:\Documents and Settings\<kiosk user> (the folder name might have .orig on the end.)
    4. Select the ntuser.man file and click Open. (It will be called ntuser.dat if the profile isn't locked in SteadyState, and you won't see it at all if Windows explorer isn't showing hidden files and folders.)
    5. You will be promped to enter a key name, it's best to call it the user name, e.g. kiosk in my case.
    6. You can now navigate the kiosk users registry, and change the above settings.
      instead of
      HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\
      you just go to
      HKEY_USERS\<key name>\Control Panel\Desktop\

      etc.
      and you can change the registry settings for that user.

    7. It is IMPORTANT that you unload the hive when you've finished, or you may have trouble logging in as that user. To do this select the key you created e.g  HKEY_USERS\<key name> and then click File>Unload Hive...   then confirm unloading the key and then close the registry editor.
      If you forget to unload and have problems logging in to your user account, just log out, log into the Administrator account again, run regedit, and unload the Hive you added.
