I want to disable the windows games, like pinball and
minesweeper. How can I do this in Regedit? I’ve made a
registry back up and everything, I just want to know what
values to set and where to find them.
Wanna make sure people can’t play games? Fair enough.
Playing games with the registry isn’t needed though.

Rather digging around in the registry, how about just uninstalling
the games? In Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove
Windows Components, select Accessories and Utilities and
press Details. Now deselect Games and press OK and/or Finish
your way out. That should remove the games completely.
Without any risk to your registry.
