Personally I would never attempt to add my own entries to the Registry. I know just enough about it to know if I make an error I am likely to kill the OS.
However if you have the knowledge and are confident, then so be it.
I'm not sure from your post what you expect to see. That reg file should create a new key called 'expertantivirus.com' in the path you have posted, and the dword:00000004 should create a new Reg_DWord with the hex value 4 in it. But the registry editor will not display that value in the right hand pane. It will just show the Reg_Dword entry with a star. If you double click the star then you should see the Edit DWORD Value dialog box with the value 4 already inserted.
Is that what you are missing?
If so, have you tried the SpywareWarriors Zoned Out? It was mentioned by knicksfan3 in the site you linked to, although I haven't searched for it in the SpywareWarriors web site.
Are there alternatives?
Perhaps a utility like Spybot Search & Destroy would add sites like these to IE's restricted sites, although if you are now using AVG8 I believe the anti-virus breaks Spybot at the moment.
Or, why not add them manually within IE itself?
Hi. I found a list of malicious web sites here: http://www.2-spyware.com/news/post334.html. I'm trying to add them all to Internet Explorer's restricted sites (Tools --> Internet Options --> Security --> Restricted sites) via the Registry. I've gotten regedit to create the keys, but they have no values. I double-click on the .reg file, and I see a message box saying that it worked each time. Here's what I enter in the file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
