    Windows 7 explorer doesn't only reconize and read mp3 tags, it also can write them.

    I don't want explorer to be able to modify my tags (e.g. in my case, the tag format will be changed from ID3v2.4 to ID3v2.3).

    Is there a (registry) tweak so that I can disable this behaviour, I don't care if the tags are read or not?

    TIA, Fres
