About This Chapter

Microsoft Windows XP Professional stores configuration information in two locations: the registry and the Active Directory service.

Modifications to the registry or Active Directory change the configuration of the Windows XP Professional environment. You use the following tools to modify the registry or Active Directory:

  • Microsoft Management Console (MMC)
  • Control Panel
  • Registry Editor
