In my experience, people are far more afraid of the Registry than they
should be. Very little that you do in the Reg is gonna completely disable
your OS install. Just export the key before you delete/change it and 9 times
out of 10 you're gonna be just fine.
I think all the self-appointed Windows experts overstate the danger in the
interests of CYA. Just don't muck about if you don't know explicitly what
you are doing; the same holds true of simply deleting files.

I've mocked before the NT registry on my NT box, and I wouldn't suggest to
anybody to do it, unless you're very familiar with it. As much as I would
like to have tab completion when I'm forced to use my NT box at work, I'm
not planning to play around the registry.
Just my $0.02...
