I need to have a change of a registry key applied without having to reboot.

When changing the value of the key below,   it is necessary to reboot the pc before the change applied.
How can we make sure this change is applied immediately  ( maybe it can be done with a vbs)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Driver Signing

What sort of changes do you need to make to that key?
It's generally a case of reinitializing the software that is using the data within the key, such that it reloads it..

I need to disable driver signing on the pc so a msi can be executed.
