I have a group of users at various locations aroung the country. They a still running Win '98. In an attempt to improve security, the previous administrator disabled the ability to right click at the registry level.  I now have to renable this feature. I know how to change the setting but many of our useres are not computer profiscent so I am hesitant to simply send out instruction son how to make the change. Can anyone offer a suggestion for a file I could send the would automatically accomplish this with one mouse click?

Is the setting just a registry entry?
If so:
-Enable the feature as normal
-Run regedit (Start, Run, regedit)
-Go to the registry key that enables the feature
-From the menu do Registry, Export
-Edit the exported reg file to delete out any keys not relevant to the task, but keep the key that is relevant

Now you can just send that reg file to anyone. When they simply click on it, they will be asked if they want to import the key into the registry.
