How do I restrict users from opening and editing the registry in Win XP?

How do I restrict users from opening and editing the registry in Win XP? All DCs are 2003 server, via GPOs.
Software Restriction Policies to the rescue! I have a whole section dedicated to Software Restriction Policies in my new book, Group Policy, Profiles and IntelliMirror for Windows 2003, Windows 2000, and Windows XP. Or, there are plenty of great Microsoft articles on Software Restriction Policies in Technet or online. Don't forget, though, that Software Restriction Policies are only valid for Windows XP or Windows 2003 as clients ... those with Windows 2000 clients are out of luck!
