Win32: A txt/faq/manual where everything of win32 is explained

I need a txt,manual,faq,... wich explains +- all settings of win32 and where win. stores wich settings
for example: I already know that windows stores alot settings in the registery but I don't know wich keys
I am looking for a HUGE txt/faq/manual with ALOT information and LESS crab ! (very huge). kinda like:
all information needed to make winboost98, winhacerk95, tweakUI AND MORE !! (no programming tips
but more like: where and how to read/modify these settings)  I giveaway alot points.. so this also means
that I want a good answer :-) : not like: "Hi there: use 'c:\windows\regedit.exe' to see all win32 settings"
because indeed .. I already know stuff like that :-----)  
I am also looking for a decryptor for the file c:\windows\usern.PWL  (I know that it exist) and where the
x-y coordinats of the icons on the win32 desktop are stored ..

ASaP .. ofcourse ...

I think this question would be best answered in one of the programming areas!

I don't have many point left :-)
otherwise I would also ask the question
in the programming area's ...

I would suggest getting a book on the Windows95/98 registry.  I am sure their are many out there.

Do you have an ISBN number of a book like this?
Title, autor ? ... because I really don't know what
or where to find something like this.. while I am
sure that it exist ...

I would suggest going to www.barnesandnoble.com.  They have a really good book searching site.
www.annoyances.org (For obvious reasons)

-PS Tell me what you think?

It's almost what I am looking for .. but now not a book but a TXT or a faq ...
I am looking for the little/hidden stuff in windows .. stuff about the registery
and where-how windows modify's these settings , . . .. . .. ..

The only real documentation is the source code of windows.
The best thing next to this documentation are the MSDN Enterprise cd's (only $3000)
The next best thing are books that are called Inside ... (NT, VB, OLE, COM, Activex, 95) etcetra.
The last best thing is the web. Just search on what you want to know or ask at experts exchange.

Maybe www.sysinternals.com can help you.
