ok as you may know ther is a way to write to the registry and change the title of internet explorer. you add Windows Title as a sub string then set the value data to what ever you want tit to say

this is my code

RegistryKey regkey;/* new Microsoft.Win32 Registry Key */

            //regkey = Registry.CurrentUser.CreateSubKey(@"Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main");

            regkey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(@"Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main");


            string[] valnames = regkey.GetValueNames();

            string val0 = (string)regkey.GetValue(valnames[0]);

            string val1 = (string)regkey.GetValue(valnames[1]);

            regkey.SetValue("Window Title", (string)Convert.ToString(textBox1.Text));

            Registry.LocalMachine.Flush();

it should make a new string?" key under there. It needs to do what is described here

please help me fix the above code


thanks

[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}\ShellFolder
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.

Hello,
you cannot store unsigned integers in the registry, it only works for signed int's for the moment, this is a know .NET bug, however there's a workaround, see this link for more info and how to fix it: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;317873

Sorry, for the VERY late reply. Yea i figured that out. So i wrote a little class to help me...its done.


mark as solved...
