Create a new Key. Name the new Key: Copy To
In the right-hand pane, double click the existing REG_SZ called Default, and set the value to:
{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

you do need the {curly brackets} for this CLSID.

Change your Default CMD prompt path


Sometimes, your path when you go to start->run, CMD will be something you don’t want. In active directory or on an NT domain, sometimes your default home path might be a network drive. This isn’t so good when you are offline or drop offline after being online. The CMD prompt is set to a place where you can’t get to.
To change the path, you can edit the registry
[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]
“Autorun”=”c:”

Disabling the Right-Click on the Start Button
Normally, when you right button click on the Start button, it allows you to open your programs folder, the Explorer and run Find.
In situations where you don't want to allow users to be able to do this in order to secure your computer.
1.Open RegEdit
2.Search for Desktop
3.This should bring you to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory
4.Expand this section
5.Under Shell is Find
6.Delete Find
7.Move down a little in the Registry to Folder
8.Expand this section and remove Explore and Open
Now when you right click on the Start button, nothing should happen.
You can delete only those items that you need.
