    Any change made to the Windows registry is immediate. If you don't know EXACTLY what you're doing, any of the side-effects you mentioned are possible. Worst case, you can corrupt the OS to the degree that it can't start, forcing either a Repair or a complete reinstallation.



    Why don't you tell us WHY you need to update the registry. Perhaps we can help you with a safer alternative.
