Modifying the rsreportserver.config has no effect

I'm trying to modify the  <Render> part of the config file. I need to alter some of the <Extension> but no matter what I do it has no effects on the report server.  
I did f.exs. remove all of the <Extension> elements in the <Render> part by adding them into <!-- -->, but I still am able to export to all of those formats anyway.

I even tried to restart the Reporting Services Services, with no success. I then deleted the Config file but then I wasn't able to restart the services, so I know that I'm altering the right config file.

Any ideas what I could do to get it to work?
<Render>

What are you trying to achieve exactly? Adding more options for exporting formats.
I think you should test if you delete an extension, is it affection the report server or not. Take out the comment tags, delete an extension (common one like excel), save the changes, restart all services for SQL server and then try exporting a report in report manager to excel to see if it worked or not.

I tried all this but without success. I deleted Excel extension and after restarting all of the services excel is still available for export.

What I'm trying to do is to limiting the list of extension possibilities from the report manager, by deleting some of the extensions.

Any other ideas what migth cause the changes in rsreportserver.config file not taking effect?

This might sound a bit silly to do but have tried rebooting the server if you are in a position to do so.
Try setting the Visible flag to false for one of the extensions and reboot the server.
