0 comments









Access Registry editor and CMD Prompt in Limited access account:


To access CMD Prompt & Registry Editor:


The easiest way is, create a text file (or) Notepad and write "COMMAND" in it and then saving it as "cmd.bat". This will give you access to Command Prompt by a double click.

If this doesn't work at all or you need to allow the use of REGEDIT and CMD you can just make your own registry file and run it on the computer. This will give you the rights to use them. Simply write the below lines in a text file (or) Notepad.
REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesWinOldApp] "Disabled"=dword:0 [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem] "DisableRegistryTools"=dword:0

Save it as test.reg and run the file. If it prompt a Yes or No message then simply press Yes.

After that you should have access to Registry Editor and the Command Prompt.

By default, Microsoft includes the /prefetch:1 switch to speed up it's Windows Media Player application start time. This switch can be used for other Windows applications and also many third party programs.

Example #1

You have AOL 8.0 installed on the computer. Complete the steps outlined below to add the /prefetch:1 switch to AOL's Target path.

1. Right click on the AOL shortcut and select properties from the menu.

2. In the Target: Field add the /prefetch:1 switch to the very end of the path.

like this:

"C:\Program Files\America Online 8.0\aol.exe" /prefetch:1 and then click ok.

Now start AOL. It would load at least 50 times faster than ever before.

Note: There should be space between (" and /prefetch ) Example : " /prefetch:1

Example #2


1. Go to the Start button/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools

2. Right click on System Restore and select properties from the menu that appears.

3.Add the /prefetch:1 to the Target Path entry so it looks

like this

%systemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe /prefetch:1

4. click ok.

Now System Restore will start immediately when executed.

Note: This switch will only work with some programs. Others will return a message saying the program in the target box is invalid. Just remove the switch

Windows remembers 400 folder settings. When that number is reached some settings aren't retained any longer. You can change this to 8000 by adding this edit to the registry.

1. Copy the following (everything in the box) into notepad.

QUOTE
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell]
"BagMRU Size"=dword:00001f40

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam]
"BagMRU Size"=dword:00001f40

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

Slow Loggon Time, one fix for problem

0 comments
My problem was a 1 min login delay due the aktiveds.dll that loads at startup .

Open up regedit.exe and find THIS folder. Navigate to it by clicking the +'s to expand
things like you would in Windows explorer:

1.Start Registry Editor (Start->Run->regedit)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\Guardian


2.Right click over "Guardian" in the left pane.

3. click on "Permissions"

4. click "SYSTEM" once to highlight it.

5.Check "deny" in all boxes that you can at the bottom (Probably only 2)

6. click Apply

7. Click OK

Say "OK" to any warnings about permissions
**Reboot** the system

I got this information from another forum.

Speed up menu display

When using the start menu the you will notice a delay between different tiers of the menu hierarchy. For the fastest computer experience possible I recommend changing this value to zero. This will allow the different tiers to appear instantly.

Start Regedit(Start->Run->regedit).

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

Select MenuShowDelay from the list on the right.

Right-click on it and select Modify.

Change the value to 0

Reboot your computer.

How To Speed Up Http Requests On Internet Explorer

0 comments

To comply with current Internet standards, Internet Explorer limits the number of simultaneous downloads to two downloads, plus one queued download. This configuration is a function of the browser. However, as connection speeds increase, and the number of total connections that are allowed to Internet servers increase, the two-connection limit may be restrictive.

Please Note: Changing the maximum number of connections beyond two is a violation of Internet standards; use at your own risk!

To increase the number of simultaneous connections that are allowed, follow these steps:

1. Start the Registry Editor(start->run-regedit)

2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings

3. Select New > DWORD Value from the Edit menu

4. Name the new value MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server

5. Right-click the MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server value and choose Modify

6. Under Base, click the radio button next to Decimal

7. In the Value Data: box enter the number of simultaneous connections you want to set (for example 10 is a good value), and

8. click OK

9. Repeat steps 3 - 7 using the new value MaxConnectionsPerServer

10. Exit the registry editor
