Disabling Windows confirmation messages

Hi all, I know this is a long shot, but if there's any experts at
tweaking windows registry settings out there then maybe you can help.

Basically I'm fed up with windows asking me (often several times) if
I'm really, really sure that I want to do the action I just did. (for example
deleting some files or ending a process or changing some desktop
settings).

I already have tweakui and it's very useful, but doesn't do the above.

Can someone tell me if there's any way of configuring windows and
disabling all these confirmations.  Thanks!

you can also easily disable delete confirmation by right clicking on the recycle bin and choosing properties, then uncheck display delete confirmation..

But we sound SO smart when we do...  :)

But you are right, the very nature of the registry makes it a bad place for experimentation..  I always hope that the user understands this, and does back it up first..  And sometimes, it is the only way to fix things...  :)
