Microsoft experts --

Regarding Win XP Pro SP1: I would like to modify Windows Explorer to
disable the moving of folders by "drag and drop" -- or at least to
prompt the user before doing such action. A previous posting
suggested the following modification to the Registry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Zones\0] "1802"=dword:00000001

However, when I tried this (00000001 would supposedly produce a
prompt) it had no effect whatsoever. :(  Could anyone suggest a
different method, that would accomplish this task? Thanks much!

Right click on the Windows task bar, go to properties,
start menu, customize, advanced, uncheck enable drag and
drop.

Thanks much! However, this does not work. :(  Please bear in mind
that I want to disable drag/drop folders for WINDOWS EXPLORER, and not
for the Start Menu. Thanks again,

I have been looking for a solution as well... When I modify the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Zones\Zones\0
Value "1802"=1

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Zones\Zones\1
Value "1802"=1

This worked just fine for Win2000, but WinXP doesn't seem to respond to it.
Please HELP!?!!?!

Thanks..
