Remove the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FileClass\ShellEx\PropertySheetHandlers which contains CLSIDs of property sheet shell extensions as subkeys.

FileClass is a class of the file.
A file can have several classes!

All the regular files are of class *
All the regular files and directories are of class AllFilesystemObjects.
All the directories are of class Directory
All the directories and namespace extension folders (such as the control panel or the Printers folder), are of class Folder
Files of extension .XXX are of class whose the name is the default value of the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.XXX

Use GetFileAttributes(), then, remove the FILE_ATTRIBUTE_READONLY flag from the set of flags returned, and then, call SetFileAttributes().

Read only file attributes are not stored in the registry base.

Even though i set the property as READ ONLY the users can change that property by right clicking the file and taking the GENERAL PROPERTY of that file.
He wil uncheck the read only property and its done...
I dont want this to happen....
