That was the original idea: a single centralized depository for all config info. So it grew and grew, and bloated massively, slowed down everything and became a source of problems because there was no defined (or enforceable) separation of App A info from App B, much less system related info. It also added a route by which trojans could inject themselves into other apps very simply by modifying the config info.

So it became depreciated as a centralized store for new apps because of the problems it caused, and security features evolved as UAC was introduced which deliberately made it harder to use. Those continue to become more restrictive as the OS evolves - at some point it will probably become off limits to all non-admin apps (it's only not at present for backward compatibility with legacy applications).

If it had been designed as a sandbox environment in the first place, it could have been a really useful secure store - but it never was and that lack of foresight shows in the zombie version we currently have! Big Grin | :-D
