However, to set the kill bit for this control, you need to use the registry editor to create a key and a value. Now, *I* can do that (and perhaps most of the WebmasterWorld readers), but I'm sure there are *many* end users who can't. How hard would it have been for MS to provide a mini-program that does these steps for us?
Not even a program is needed. If somebody exports this key and value to a .reg file, the work is done: the user only needs to double-click the .reg file and select "yes" when asked "Wish to add this info to windows registry?". Going further, not even the regedit is needed: if you know exactly which key and value must be set (and Microsoft does), then you may even use notepad to write the .reg file. But, did you really expect something efficient from Microsoft?. As time and experience has taught me, Microsoft knows how to do something beautiful and best-selling, but not efficient nor secure... even so, thats only an opinion :P
