Using Notepad or Edit, editthe text file /windows/inf/ sysoc.inf, search for the word 'hide' and remove it.You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, selectAdd/Remove Windows Components and there will be your prey, exposed and vulnerable.================================================== =================
 
Creating Shutdown Icon or One cl!ck Shutdown:Navigate to your desktop. On the desktop, right-cl!ck and go to New, then toShortcut (in other words, create a new shortcut). You should now see a pop-upwindow instructing you to enter a command line path.Use this path in "Type Location of the Item"SHUTDOWN -s -t 01If the C: drive is not your local hard drive, then replace "C" with the correctletter of the hard drive. cl!ck the "Next" button. Name the shortcut and cl!ck the"Finish" button. Now whenever you want to shut down, just cl!ck on this shortcutand you're done.================================================== =================Increasing Band-Width By 20%:Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes likeWindows Updates and interrogating your PC etcTo get it back:cl!ck Start then Run and type " gpedit.msc" without quotes.This opens the grouppolicy editor. Then go to:Local Computer Policy then Computer Configuration then Administrative Templatesthen Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to Limit Reservable Bandwidth.Double cl!ck on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, butthe truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."By default, the Packet Scheduler limitsthe system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use thissetting to override the default."So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This willallow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.It works on Win2000 as well.================================================== =================Renaming The Recycle Bin icon:To change the name of the Recycle Bin desktop icon, cl!ck Start then goto Run,write Regedit and press Enter. It opens Registry Editor. Now in Registry Editor goto:HKEY_CLASSES_ ROOT/CLSID/ {645FF040- 5081-101B- 9F08-00AA002F954 E}and change the name "Recycle Bin" to whatever you want (don't type any quotes).Managing Tasks:You can at last get rid of tasks on the computer from the command line by using'taskkill /pid' and the task number, or just 'tskill' and the process number. Findthat out by typing 'tasklist', which will also tell you a lot about what's goingon in your system.================================================== =================Removing Shared Documents folder From My Computer window:Open registry editor by going to Start then Run and entering regedit.

If youdelete this key, you have effectively removed the my shared documents folder.================================================== =================Improving the Slow Boot up time:There are a variety of reasons why your windows XP system would boot slowly. Mostof the times it this has to do with the startup applications. If you would like tospeed up the bootup sequence, consider removing some of the startup applicationsthat you do not need. Easiest way to remove startup apps is through SystemConfiguration Utility. Go to Start then Run and enter MSCONFIG and go to theStartup tab. Deselect/UnCheck application( s) that you do not want to startup atboot time.================================================== =================Customize Logon prompt with your Own Words:Open Registry by going to Start then Run, entering regedit and Navigate to[HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ Winlogon] .In right pane, look for key by the name "LogonPrompt" . Set its value to whatevertext you want to see displayed at login screen.IP address of your connection:Go to Start then Run. Enter 'cmd' and then enter 'ipconfig' .Add the '/all' switchfor more info .================================================== =================Making Folders Private:Open My Computer Double-cl!ck the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive(C, unless you have more than one drive on your computer). If the contents of thedrive are hidden, under System Tasks, cl!ck Show the contents of this drive.Double-cl!ck the Documents and Settings folder.
