refresh the registry without a reboot

Today I was attempting to disable ssl2 on my mail server to get into PCI compliance for credit card data.

Now Windows people know that if you edit the registry you have to reboot to have those changes show up correctly...

ah or so I thought

open a command prompt and type

RunDll32.exe USER32.DLL,UpdatePerUserSystemParameters ,1 ,True

this will refresh the registry

damn that's handy
