You should make sure that you're following the correct registry path in Windows. The registry paths have extremely similar names or even the same names amongst each other, just another shining example of how well thought-out Windows is.

Well, I've checked it over and it seems like I'm following the one in the link.

Lets pretend I don't really know what I'm doing.

Then you should not be messing around with the registry. Things getting messed up in there = broken OS

Normally this would be more concerning if you were going around deleting registry edits. But in this case, he's adding one.

I can't help much. But I will say that the last time I dealt with registry edits and it didn't work, it was because I was missing something in the steps. And another time it was because I was trying to add a registry that had already existed. I just needed to find it and change the value or something.

I suppose I'll go over everything again with fine toothed comb.

ok.

I found another directory that might be messing this up.

There's already a Google>Google Chrome registry.

Think I should give it a go there? It's not under policies.

Right-click on "Chrome" and select New >> DWORD (32-bit) Value
Enter "IncognitoModeAvailability" (without the quotes) as the name
Right-click on "IncognitoModeAvailability" and select "Modify..."
Type a 1 in the "Value Data" text box
Click OK and exit the Registry Editor program

there is a walrus trapped in your fridge. make sure your monkey doesn't reach into the candy jar because a hippopotamus is in poverty with 4 kids and only one sandwich

that's all the help i can offer you

He's an Orangutan you dolt.

and poverty is a lie created by money


EDIT: nvm. I asked the sandwich and he helped me out. He told me to make myself a supervised user of myself. No need to mess with the registry.

Ask the paperclip in Microsoft Word.

I'd be interested to know why you want to do this, if only you were willing to share.

Wait, you're trying to remove incognito mode so that YOU can't watch porn?
#19
I have a beautiful girlfriend whom I live with and am productive and still watch porn.

You're not doing it right!
#20
If your endgoal is to not watch porn, just use a browser like Lynx, that can only display text.

Unless ASCII porn is your thing, you should be good to go.

the entire windows registry is an abomination

Since you all seem to have a bit of a prurient interest in this...

(incidentally, prurient interests are why I wanted to this in the first place)

I was doing this for me. I wanted to make it more inconvenient for me to view the darker side of the human psyche as personified by desperate and damaged people.

I had resolved to quit before and had been doing well. A recent spat of failures and old habits returning made me want to change things. I'm not going to stop "Han-ing my Solo"or "Chewin' my Bacca", I just wanted to stop with the porn. I never did it right. I spend to long looking for the next vid or the next pic. It's like slots. It's more about the anticipation than jackin it anymore. And I always feel like shit afterwards.

I also have moral qualms with porn. Not religious or anything. It was easier when I was younger because all the women seemed so much older than me. Now I'm 20. I can't imagine, at 18, being in that situation. I suppose some people choose to work in porn and everything's fine and dandy, but a lot of other people are damaged or desperate. Everyone is a victim of circumstance ya know? That kind of arousal is different, to me, than the kind you get with a real person. It's like a lie I've been lapping up since we got high speed internet and the porn industry collapsed in '06* and everything got uploaded to the internet. Like all good lies it's built around an element of truth I suppose. But I don't want it subtly coloring my experience of sexuality anymore. I want to try to clean the slate and come at things from a different angle.

So TL;DR It doesn't make me happy. Thanks to the sandwiches advice, I made myself a supervised user in chrome, put on safe search, blocked tumblr and a couple other sites and buried non supervised chrome in the programs folder. I just wanted a bit of reminder to myself as to what my goals are, and I think this will help me give myself a slap on the wrist. It had become a "all roads on the internet lead to porn" kind of thing, so I wanted to block of some roads. I had already stopped outright and wanted to close off the more roundabout ways I've taken to failure.

I spent to much time talkin the talk (to myself) I wanted to walk the walk better.

I don't give a **** what other people do. Look at Brazilian Midget Fart Porn for all I care. This is just how I feel in regards to me.


*I think it was '06. There was a good Louis Theroux documentary* about the porn industry post-collapse.

*"Good Louise Theroux documentary" is redundant.
