Refresh the registry-without a reboot
Note: this is an old trick, but it still works
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
