    I just wanted to know if the AutoEndTasks registry key can be used on Windows Server 2008 R2 and does the OS require a restart for the setting to become effective once its been added?
    Hello sas786, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you can apply it to Windows Server 2008 R2 as well, and a restart is required to apply.

    Brink this is just a suggestion. how about adding the options when you right click in the right pane of regedit window it should be specify the correct value ex.

    so it will be like this--> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop


    right click in the right pane
    New
    String Value or DWORD

    maybe some are having a confusing about this.
    so it will become easy to understand to all. i hope it will help this info.

    cheers mate

    Hello zaldhie, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The downloadable .reg files will do all the work for you. The information in the note boxes is just to let you know what the .reg files do.
