Before you create a Registry preference item, you should review the behavior of each type of action possible with this extension.
Once the two rules have been added, you can go ahead and click ok.
Now go and open the Group Policy setting that you wish to edit. That will fire up Regedit and take you to the exact key which was modified That’s all there is to it guys.
Before you actually change the setting, switch back over to Proc Mon and clear the log. If you switch over to Proc Mon you will see that you have a registry key(s) there.
I then set it to the desired value (in this case a dword value of 00000001) to disable password changes and I ensure the action is set to “Update” as this key exists on all Windows systems.
One thing you should take note of is the Action type at the top of the screen.
