You'd have to be sincerely handicapped to screw up and change the wrong entry considering you'd know exactly which one it is.

But I guess paranoia never hurt anyone.

Well, what you are playing around with in the registry is what can largely depend on whether you are risking breaking the OS or not.

All I ever go into the registry for anymore is to kill my hl2 settings if I need to, since source/steam stores some settings in registry.

Holds basically just video settings. The rest of the crap like controls and such are all held in .cfg files.

Whatever your computer has in it. if its 256 then use 256 etc..

And for those who object to x800's post, I have done this same thing on almost every XP computer I have owned, and never had a single problem with this. Regardless of if this key is even IN the registry, windows will still work. Now if you start playing around with stuff you do not know what it is used for, then yes you are going to start having problems. However more often than not, if you know what you are doing in the registry and dont go poking around and changing random stuff you have no idea about, then you wont have any problems. But then again that requires common sense
