Internet Download Manager Trick

Internet Download Manager Trick


Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC etc

You can get it back:

Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes.This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:
Local Computer Policy
then Computer Configuration
then Administrative Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."
So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.It works on Win 2000 as well.

How to disable program fixes and Program Compatibility Assistant warnings in Windows Vista

How to disable program fixes and Program Compatibility Assistant warnings in Windows Vista

Programs may have program fixes applied to them to help them run without issues in a Windows operating system. However, you may want to disable a program fix on computers in your organization.

How to disable a program fix

To disable a program fix, use a test computer to determine the registry keys to create. You can then use these registry keys to disable the fix on other computers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Install Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0 on a test computer. To download the Application Compatibility Toolkit 5.0, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
https://connect.microsoft.com/site/sitehome.aspx?SiteID=81

2. Click Start, type compatibility, right-click Compatibility Administrator in the results list, and then click Run as Administrator.
3. In the Analyze pane, expand Applications, and then click a program.
4. In the details pane, right-click the program for which you want to disable the fix, and then click Disable Entry.

Note This action creates a registry entry in the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags
The name of the entry is the GUID that represents the program entry in the Appcompat database. The entry type is DWORD, and the entry has a value of 0x77.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all the program fixes that you want to disable.
6. Export the newly created registry entries to a .reg file. Then, deploy the .reg file to production computers.

Program Compatibility Assistant warnings
When you try to perform a silent installation or an automated installation of a program, the Program Compatibility Assistant may display a warning. Additionally, it may stop the installation. To allow for the automated installation of a program, you may want to disable this Program Compatibility Assistant warning.

How to disable a Program Compatibility Assistant warning

To disable a Program Compatibility Assistant warning, use a test computer to determine the registry keys to create. You can then use these registry keys to disable the Program Compatibility Assistant warning on other computers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Run the affected program on a test computer.
2. When you receive the Program Compatibility Assistant warning message, click to select the Don't show this message again check box.

Note This action creates a registry entry in the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags
The name of the entry is the GUID that represents the program entry in the Appcompat database. The entry type is DWORD, and the entry has a value of 0x77.

Note The Program Compatibility Assistant warning appears only for a program that is not blocked from running.
3. Exit the program.
4. Note the registry entry that was created in step 3.
5. In the installation script, include steps to add the registry entry before the installation starts.

GOOGLE TALK SECRETS

HOW TO Use multiple identities on Google Talk

Want to run Google Talk with multiple Gmail identities? If you have several Google Gmail accounts you also may want to run multiple instances of Google Talk This is especially important for families that share a single PC. Nothing worse than a family member signing you out so they can sign in under their own account!
Basically, to have "Google Polygamy" you need to run Google Talk with the following switch: /nomutex
Step 1: Right-click on the desktop
Step 2: Select New
Step 3: Select Shortcut
Step 4: Paste this into the text box:
"c:\program files\google\google talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex
Step 5: Click Next and choose a shortcut name such as Google Talk1, Google Talk2, or something related to your Gmail account for easy remembering which account is which.
Step 6: Click OK a few times.

HOW TO Use Google Talk via a Web Browser

You want to use Google Talk anywhere ? Follow these guidelines :)
Step 1: Opens your favorite web browser at the following address :
http://www.webjabber.net:8080/jim/
Step 2: Follow the instructions of the Page.
Step 3: You can talk with your friends
Google's Secret Command-Line Parameters
There are a few secret parameters you can add to Google Talk and make it function differently.
The most important, I think, is /nomutex, which allows you to run more than one instance of GT. Here are the others:
/nomutex: allows you to open more than one instance of Google Talk
/autostart: when Google Talk is run with this parameter, it will check the registry settings to see if it needs to be started or not. If the "Start automatically with Windows" option is unchecked, it won't start.
/forcestart: same as /autostart, but forces it to start no matter what option was set.
/S upgrade: Used when upgrading Google Talk
/register: registers Google Talk in the registry, includig the GMail Compose method.
/checkupdate: check for newer versions
/plaintextauth: uses plain authentication mechanism instead then Google's GAIA mechanism. Used for testing the plain method on Google's servers.
/nogaiaauth: disables GAIA authentication method. The same as above.
/factoryreset: set settings back to default.
/gaiaserver servername.com: uses a different GAIA server to connect to Google Talk. Used for debug purposes only, there are no other known GAIA servers.
/mailto email@host.com: send an email with Gmail
/diag: start Google Talk in diagnostic mode
/log: probably has something to do with the diagnostic logging
/unregister: ?
/embedding: ?
To add these, open up your GT shortcut, and where it says "Target:" add one or more of these inside the quotations, but after the .exe part.


How To do Conference Calls

What you need to do to have conference calls:

Open up a copy of Google Talk on all computers with which you wish to conference.

After one copy is opened make a new shortcut for Google Talk but at the end of it add /nomutex.

If you installed it to the default folder then your shortcut should read "C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex.

Open 2nd instances of the software on every user's computer.

After this start a chain: User 1 should connect on one instance to user 2. User 2 will connect on his second instance to user 3. User 3 will connect using his second instance back to user 1. With this chain everyone is connected to everyone.


Nickname & Status Message

You can't change your nickname in a way that other people will see it change. Every nickname in the Google Talk contact list is the part that is before @gmail.com (only the alphabetical characters are used) or the name you chosen for your GMail account.

To change the nickname need to go to your Gmail account and change the name there. Choose Settings, Accounts, and then Edit info. Click on the second radio button, and enter your custom name. As a result all of your emails will have that nick as well, there is no way to seperate the two. You can add a website in your custom message, it will be click-able when someone opens a conversation window with you.

Contacts

You don't need to say Yes or No when someone wants to add you as a friend; you can simply ignore it, the request will go away. (On the other hand, someone with whom you chat often will automatically turn to be your friend, unless you disable this).
The Gmail account 'user@gmail.com' can't be invited as your friend.

Play Music

It's possible to broadcast music, MP3, etc.. through Google Talk.
Unplug your microphone. Double click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner. This will open up "Volume Control". Select "Options" and then "Properties". Then check the button next to "Recording" then click OK. You may also have to change your setting under Mixer Device. Now the Recording Control screen should be up. On my computer I selected "Wave Out Mix". Click on the green phone in Google Talk and call your friend.

Keyboard Shortcuts

* Ctrl + E - It centralizes the selected text, or the current line.
* Ctrl + R - It justifies to the right the selected text, or the current line.
* Ctrl + L - It justifies to the left the selected text, or the current line.
* Ctrl + I - The same thing does that Tab.
* Tab - It is giving the area to each of the windows opened by Google Talk.
* Ctrl + Tab - The same thing does that Shift + Tab .
* Shift + Tab - The same thing does that Tab but in reverse.
* Ctrl + Shift + L -Switch between points, numbers, letters, capital letters, roman numbers and capital roman numbers
* Ctrl + 1 (KeyPad) - It does a simple space between the lines.
* Ctrl + 2 (KeyPad) - It does a double space between the lines.
* Ctrl + 5 (KeyPad) - A space does 1.5 between the lines.
* Ctrl + 1 (NumPad) - It goes at the end of the last line.
* Ctrl + 7 (NumPad) - It goes at the begin of the last line.
* Ctrl + F4 - It closes the current window.
* Alt + F4 - It closes the current window.
* Alt + Esc - It Minimize all the windows.
* Windows + ESC - Open Google Talk (if it's minimized, or in the tray)
* F9 - Open Gmail to send an email to the current contact.
* F11 - It initiates a telephonic call with your friend.
* F12 - It cancels a telephonic call.
* Esc - It closes the current window.

Fix the problems almost occur after installing new software in Windows

Fix the problems almost occur after installing new software in Windows

There can be many errors occur after installing a new software for a PC. However there are three common types of errors that can be appearing in any computer system because of the incompatibility or not proper installation of software. Fix Software Crashes

Mostly many of errors can be occur after installing system utilities and drivers than a normal software. Generating almost endless list of errors that can be caused by any of the below reasons.

1. Confliction of newly installed programs with exist software in the pc.
2. Issue comes with the program.
3. Improper installation or problems that can be occur within the installation.

* Reinstall or uninstall
the program

Most of the times you can fix the problems that grows because of the installation errors or any other incorrect process that was occur within the installation by reinstalling the software back. It is good to uninstall the program first before begin the reinstallation.

Other than using normal windows uninstaller I almost prefer and tend to use uninstaller software like Revo and Your-uninstaller. Revo one of my preferred one as it completely free of charge and hefty for remove all remains of a program.

Note:
If after installing a program you're unable to boot into Windows, try booting into Safe Mode.

* Check for software program updates or New versions

Incompatible, old and un-upgraded versions can make affect system stability by working against the CPU instruction and so on. As these cannot be done higher impact these can be affect into certain areas only. However this can be incapacitate your overall system performances in some cases.

Obviously you should try to getting newest versions of software as developers improving and fixing bugs with the new versions. However this can cost you more if you trying to buy every new software release with upgrades and this is something which is not practically do.

But in here I’m not focusing on shareware. System drivers are the major section which always suffers with the old/incompatible versions. Hardware drivers cost you nothing as they freely published by the hardware manufactures.

So always try to get the newest versions issued by your hardware manufacturers, try to use the update driver feature in windows for search drivers automatically without paying third party products.

Send message from Computer Management Console

Send message from Computer Management Console

Many times we need to send a message to users who are logged on any other remote computer, for some maintenance issues or any thing else. There are many ways for informing a user like net meeting or any other chat software but these software doesn't solve the issue completely. Why? because either the user takes these messages lightly or sometimes doesn't even try to take any message.

So their must be a proper mechanism so that the message sent to the user must flash on his screen, to let him know about any issue.

To sent this kinda warning or information messages you will need to open your computer management console


Go to Start --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management

In Computer Management Select "Action" from the menu bar and select "All tasks" --> "Send Console Messages"

Click "Add"
Type the name of the recipient computer
Click O.K

Type your message in your message box and click send.

Windows 7 is much more than graphics

Windows 7 is much more than graphics

According to me, Windows 7 the latest operating system from Microsoft will stand out to be a major performer in the desktop client operating system market. Till yet we have seen a lot of operating systems of Microsoft. We have also witnessed a lot of hype in the market about Microsoft operating systems every time a new operating system is launched. Do you remember the launch of Windows XP, the launch of Windows Vista and now of course you are witnessing the launch of Windows 7.

Being a technology enthusiast and a System Engineer I study a lot about operating systems. I don't know why everyone today is just busy blogging and telling people about Windows 7. Their are only graphics is this OS and nothing else. Don't you think so ?

If yes then you are wrong Windows 7 is much more than graphics. I don't say this because I am a big supporter of Microsoft, but yes as an engineer I will of course appreciate the effort made by Microsoft in creating this operating system. This OS is not only about graphics "Loud and Clear".

Let me give you an example, if you are a tech geek you will understand it quiet easily. Just the Technology VPN has been revived in a manner in Windows 7 operating system with the integration of Windows 2008 server that it could change the way we look at VPN. I won't speak much but in future if the word VPN is completely gone from Microsoft Operating System than it won't be a surprise for me.

Not many times we see Microsoft innovative. We know Microsoft because of the copy cat behaviour of their business. Yes Windows 7 is something which is making us , at least me to restructure the image of Microsoft in my mind. Microsoft is innovating not in some but in many technologies.

The open source lovers may find this article as something very weird and the writer a crazy person. Yes this is also a truth that how much good a paid technology could be on the other side people and companies trying to lower their cost, do go for the free versions. But as you know that Microsoft operating system dominates the client side OS, I think this time it will much easier for Microsoft.

Build blog traffic using 5 quick tips

Build blog traffic using 5 quick tips

Today I want to discuss 5 quick tips to build traffic for a blog. These techniques or strategies are absolutely free to use and also provide a huge stream of traffic to your blog.


Build Blog Traffic Tip #1


Social Bookmarking - Social Bookmarking is an awesome method to increase traffic to a blog. With social bookmarking one can easily make his blog visible to others and get free traffic.This strategy works for every one, but social bookmarking must be followed as a practice and must be followed properly if you need huge amount of traffic flowing to your blog. To implement this strategy not much has to be done just implement a bookmark plug in on your blog which is available for free and that's it. If your blog already has some readership or traffic you will see your blog being bookmarked by your reader to major social bookmarking websites like digg and stumbleupon. Bookmarking of your blog to social bookmarking sites will lead to more users on these bookmarking sites to know about your blog, thus they will either bookmark you or become your blog readers in turn giving you traffic again.


Build Blog Traffic Tip #2


Blog Comments - This is a proven way to get good quality targeted traffic to your blog. Always comment on other blogs as much as possible and always comment as good as possible because blog commenting provide you more visibility(try to comment on established blogs). This visibility could be wasted if you are not commenting properly, ie whenever you comment on any blog always comment as long as possible and as much specific to the topic you can be. This will of course give your blog a lot more visibility and a lot more traffic than before.


Build Blog Traffic Tip #3


Forum Marketing - Forum marketing is a great tool to get huge blog traffic, because you find like minded people in forums who can turn into targeted traffic for your blog. So creating a good forum profile in order to get huge blog traffic is not a bad idea. The rule of writing better blog comments applies here too and always try to write something useful in forums. Writing helpful topics in a forums creates a good profile giving you good visibility and thus increasing your blog traffic. A point to be noted down here is that a forum is run by humans , so don't spam it or you will be banned or your ip will be banned, because these forum guys hardly care about web traffic.


Build Blog Traffic Tip #4


Article Marketing - Some people will agree to me that article marketing works and some don't but let me tell you that article marketing does work if done properly and can provide huge traffic to your blog. If you are ignoring article marketing to get blog traffic then let me tell you that these article sites have a very high page rank in google and of course which your blog needs. Writing an effective article in these article directories can get your article and blog to the first page of google without much effort thus indirectly giving your blog some traffic.


Build Blog Traffic Tip #5


YouTube Marketing - Really effective method to get huge traffic to the blog but doesn't works for everyone. Uploading Videos on YouTube and sharing it with the world can get you a huge traffic if any of your video get a lot of hits. One really needs to know some good marketing strategy before going for YouTube marketing because many people who try never get more than 100 views annually. Some blogs who deal in categories like movies or TV show this marketing strategy to get blog traffic is a must, other must also try it but not make it the main stream marketing strategy for building traffic for your blog.

SPEEDING XP BY 60 TIMES

SPEEDING XP BY 60 TIMES


Speed up Booting Xp by 61 Times




run -> msconfig - Hit Enter


Awesome tricks Explained here for u Free! : Rahul Dutt Avasthy




Whenever you start your computer, you are faced with a few moments of thumb twiddling while Windows XP boots and prompts you to log on. Although you should expect to wait for a few moments, sometimes Windows XP seems to boot rather slowly. In fact, you may notice that over a period of time the PC that used to roar to life seems a bit sluggish instead. Fortunately, you can perform several techniques that help Windows XP get the bootup speed you want. This Article explores how to put these techniques to work.



Stopping Unneeded Startup Services !


Along with the core operating system and programs that Windows XP runs when it starts, there is also a host of services involved. Many of these services are necessary for Windows XP to operate correctly. However, many of them are for features in Windows XP that you may not use at all. You can peruse the services and disable any service that you do not want to run. The fewer services that run, the more quickly Windows XP will boot.


Caution:

Exercise caution when stopping services. If you do not know what a service does or are unsure of the ramifications of stopping the service, leave it alone. Some services are critical to Windows XP's operations, so make sure you understand what the service is before you disable it.


To reduce the number of services that start on bootup, you can access two different areas of Windows XP. The first is the System Configuration Utility. The Services tab shows you the services that start when the computer boots.
You can stop a service from starting by simply clearing the check box next to the service and clicking OK. However, before you do so, there is another way to disable services that you may prefer because the interface gives you more information about the service in question.


Open Control Panel/Administrative ToolsServices or else select Start/Run, type services.msc, and click OK. Either way, you see the Services console.
I prefer to use the Services console instead of the System Configuration Utility because it describes what the service does. Additionally, you can double-click a service and examine its properties.

Notice the Startup Type column in Figure 4-2. This information lists whether the service is automatic or manual. Manual services are only started in Windows XP when you start a process that requires the service. Some other process may require the service that has a "dependency" relationship with it; in this case, the dependency service will start, as well. Because these services do not start automatically when you boot Windows XP, you do not need to do anything with manual services.


However, all services listed as automatic start when Windows XP boots. These are the services that increase boot time. As I have mentioned, many of them are necessary and important, so you should not stop automatic services from booting unless you are sure of the ramifications. You can get this information by looking at the Description column. Here's a quick look at common services you may want to live without:



SPEED UP BOOT BY DISABLING UNUSED PORTS.!!


You may have tried many tweaks like modifying windowsXP start-up applications, prefetches, unload DLLs method,etc. And yes those methods do work for me.
I have just accidentally found out another way to give you an extra boost in windowsXP's boot performance. This is done by disabling your unused devices in
Device Manager. for example, if you don't have input devices that are connected to one of your USBs or COM ports, disabling them will give you an extra perfromance boost in booting. Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> device manager Disable devices that you don't use for your PC and then restart.



Do Dis !!


1.Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).

2.Locate the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters

3.Make sure you backup the keys by exporting them to a .reg file.

4.On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).

5.Close the registry editor.

6.Restart your computer



Automatic Updates !

This service enables Windows XP to check the Web automatically for updates. If you don't want to use Automatic Updates, you can disable the service. You can always check for updates manually at the Windows Update Web site.

Computer Browser: If your computer is not on a network, you don't need this service. If you are on a network, leave it alone.

DHCP Client: If you are not on a network, you do not need this service. If you are on a small workgroup, you can still increase boot time by configuring manual IP addresses (which I explore later in this chapter).

DNS Client: If you are not on a network, you do not need this service. If you are, leave it alone.

Error Reporting and Event Log: You don't have to use these services but they can be very helpful, so I would leave them configured as automatic.

Fax: If you don't use your computer for fax services, you can disable this one.

Help and Support: If you never use the Windows XP Help and Support Center (found on the Start menu), you can disable this service.

IMAPI CD-Burning COM: This service enables you to burn CDs on your computer. If you never burn CDs, you can disable the service.

Indexing Service: Your computer keeps an index of files but if you rarely search for files, the service is just a resource hog. You can stop it and turn the service to manual.

Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing: If you do not use these features, you can disable them.

Infrared Monitor: If you do not use infrared devices, you can disable this service.

Messenger: This service sends alert messages on a local area network (it is not the same as Windows Messenger). If you are not on a network, you can disable this service.

Print Spooler: If you do not do any printing from the computer, you can disable this service. If you print, make sure you leave it as automatic.

Remote Registry: This service allows remote users to modify the Registry on your computer. If you are not on a network, you can disable this service.

System Restore Service: This service allows you to use System Restore. If you have turned off System Restore anyway, you do not need to turn off the service. If you do, you turn off System Restore.

Themes: If you do not use themes, you can disable this service.

Windows Image Acquisition: If you do not use scanners or digital cameras, you can disable this service.

Wireless Zero Configuration: If do not use wireless networking devices, you can disable this service.




You may have a number of other automatic services, depending on software and other configurations on your computer. So it's a good idea to look through the services and learn more about them. If you double-click a service, a Properties dialog box appears
Notice that on the General tab, you see a Startup Type drop-down menu. If you want to change an automatic service to manual, select Manual here and click OK. As a general rule, don't disable a service unless you are sure you will never use it. However, manual configuration allows the service to be started when you find it necessary, thus speeding up your boot time.
However, before you change a service to manual, look at the Dependencies tab (see Figure 4-4). This tab shows you which other services depend upon the service you are considering changing.
Keep in mind that services are necessary for the vast functionality you get with Windows XP. Change only those services that you understand and do not use. How you use your Windows XP computer should be the best guide in terms of optional startup services.



Tip !


The Indexing service and the System Restore service take up a lot of disk space and system resources across the board. You can live without the Indexing service but I suggest that you keep using System Restore. It works great when you are in a bind and this is one case where the loss of speed may not be worth the ramifications of not using System Restore.


Speed Tips and Tricks for Windows XP Startup
Aside from startup programs, services, and the Prefetch folder, there are a number of other startup procedures and issues you can modify to help Windows XP start faster. The following sections explore those tips and tricks.


Manual IP Addressing on Small Office/Home Networks
Windows XP is configured to help you take care of networking. It uses the TCP/IP protocol for networking in workgroups, or what you might call small office or home networks that do not use a dedicated server.

The problem is that automatic IP addressing can be slow. When your computer boots, it has to query the network to see what IP addresses are already in use and then assign itself one. If you want to speed up the boot time a bit, consider manually assigning IP addresses to all computers on the network. This way, the network computers do not have to worry about locating an automatic IP address. Because one is manually configured, the operating system doesn't have to spend time solving this problem.

This isn't a networking book, however, so I won't delve into the implications of using a manual IP address, but if you are using a computer that functions as a host computer to the Internet (using Internet Connection Sharing [ICS]), you can get into connectivity problems if you change the configuration of the IP address. However, you can still work around this problem by starting with the ICS host computer.

Select Start/Connect To/Show All Connections. Right-click your network adapter card and click Properties. On the General tab, select TCP/IP in the list of services and click the Properties button.

In the TCP/IP properties, you can see if you use an automatic or manual IP address. In the example in Figure 4-5, I have configured a manual IP address of 90.0.0.1 and a default subnet mask. The other computers on my office network each use a different IP address in the same class, such as 90.0.0.2, 90.0.0.3, 90.0.0.4, and so on. This way, each computer has a permanent IP address, which helps increase boot time. Note that if you change the IP addresses of your computers, they must all use the same subnet mask. A default subject mask of 255.255.255.0 will keep you in good shape.

Make sure you understand the implications of changing IP addresses on your network. If you have no networking experience at all, you may be wiser to leave the automatic IP addressing as is and try to gain some speed using the additional suggestions in this chapter.



Disabling Recent Documents History !


Windows XP includes a feature that keeps track of all recent documents you have opened or used. The idea is that you can select Start/Recent Documents History and quickly reopen any document you have recently used. I use many documents each day and never use the feature myself. In my opinion, I can keep up with what I want to use without Windows XP doing it for me.
The bad thing about Recent Documents History is that Windows XP has to calculate what should be put there each time you boot Windows, which can slow things down. So, if you never use the Recent Documents History, it's a good idea to disable it. Here's how:
1. Open the Registry Editor (select Start/Run, type regedit, and click OK).
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mcft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.
3. Create a NoRecentDocsHistory D_WORD key. Double-click the value to open it once it is created.
4. Set the Data Value to 1 to enable the restriction.
5. Click OK and close the Registry Editor. You'll need to restart the computer for the change to take effect.



Disabling the Boot Logo !


You can remove the boot logo that appears when you start Windows XP. This little tweak probably shaves only a few seconds off your boot time but seconds count if you are serious about trying to get Windows XP up and running as quickly as possible. The only negative is that if you remove the boot logo, you will also not see any boot messages, such as check disk. (But if you are not having problems with your computer, this isn't such a big deal.)
To remove the boot logo, follow these steps:
1. Select Start/Run, type msconfig, and click OK.
2. In the System Configuration Utility, click the BOOT.INI tab.
3. On the BOOT.INI tab, click the NOGUIBOOT check box option. Click OK.



Removing Unwanted Fonts !


One trick that increases your boot time a bit is to lose any fonts in the Fonts folder in Control Panel that you never use. The more fonts you have, the more processing Windows XP has to do to prep all of those fonts for use. You must be a bit careful here to not remove fonts that you might want, but there is a good chance that you can live without many of them. For instance, you may have foreign language fonts and other symbol fonts (such as Wingdings) that you never use.
To delete unneeded fonts, follow these steps:
1. Open the Fonts folder in Control Panel.
2. Select Edit/Select All and then Edit/Copy.
3. Create a new folder on your desktop, open it, and select Edit/Paste.
4. In this new folder, delete any of the fonts you do not want.
5. Return to the Fonts folder in Control Panel. Right-click the selected fonts and click Delete.
6. Go back to your new desktop folder and click Edit/Select All.
7. Return to your Fonts folder and click Edit/Paste. You now have only the desired fonts in the Fonts folder.



Tip:


You can directly delete fonts from the Fonts folder without creating the secondary folder. However, I recommend the preceding steps to help ensure that you do not make a mistake in the deletion process.



Stopping Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop Sharing !


In Windows XP Professional, you have two remote networking features called Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop Sharing. These remote networking features are very helpful in a variety of situations but if you don't use them, it is good idea to disable them to save boot time. You can always enable them later if you want to use them.
Note:
If you are interested in using Remote Desktop or Remote Assistance, see my book Windows XP for Power Users: Power Pack published by John Wiley & Sons.
1. Open the Start menu, right-click My Computer, and choose Properties.
2. Click the Remote Tab.
3. Clear both check boxes to disable Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop.



Speeding Up the Dual-Boot Timeout !


If you dual-boot your computer with Windows XP and another operating system, you see an operating system selection menu on startup. If you typically boot into Windows XP and not the other operating system, you can speed up the dual-boot timeout value so that you do not wait so long for the boot process to select your default operating system and continue with the boot process. The default timeout value is 30 seconds but you can change this setting to 10. This gives you enough time to select the alternate operating system if you want but also speeds up the boot process. You can skip this section if you do not use a dual-boot configuration.
Follow these steps:
1. Locate the boot.ini file on your computer. It is a hidden file by default; mine is located in C:\boot.ini.
2. Open the file with Notepad (which is what opens it by default).
3. Change the Timeout value to 10 (see Figure 4-11).
4. Select File/Save and close Notepad.



Speeding Up Your PPPoE Connection !


If you use a Point-to-Point Protocol connection over Ethernet (PPPoE), you may notice a delay in using the PPPoE connection after startup. By default, there is a 120 second delay but you can stop this behavior by manually configuring an IP address for the network adapter card. If you do not use a PPPoE connection, you can skip this section.
1. Select Start/Connect to/Show All Connections.
2. Open the TCP/IP properties for your LAN network interface card.
3. Manually set the IP address on the TCP/IP properties to an appropriate IP address and subnet mask for your network.



Reducing the Wait Time


When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill," any live applications or processes that are currently running. So close all applications first. However, some applications and processes are always running in the background. You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP waits for those applications and processes to close before Windows XP kills them. Edit three different Registry settings to change this:
1. Open the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Select WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000.
3. Select the HungAppTimeout value and set it to 1000 as well.
4. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Set the WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select the HungAppTimeout \newline value and set it to 1000 as well.
5. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control. Select the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 1000.
6. Close the Registry Editor.


Automatically Killing Tasks on Shutdown !


You know the drill. You start to shut down the computer, you wait a few moments, and then you see a dialog box asking if you want to kill an application or service that is running. Instead of prompting you, you can make Windows XP take care of the kill task automatically. Here's how:
1. Open the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.
3. Highlight the value AutoEndTasks and change the value to 1.
4. Close the Registry Editor.

Here's a great tip to speed up your browsing of Windows XP machines. Its actually a fix to a bug installed as default in Windows 2000 that scans shared files for Scheduled Tasks. And it turns out that you can experience a delay as long as 30 seconds when you try to view shared files across a network because Windows 2000 is using the extra time to search the remote computer for any Scheduled Tasks. Note that though the fix is originally intended for only those affected, Windows 2000 users will experience that the actual browsing speed of both the Internet & Windows Explorers improve significantly after applying it since it doesn't search for Scheduled Tasks anymore. Here's how :

Open up the Registry and go to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace Under that branch, select the key : {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} and delete it. This is key that instructs Windows to search for Scheduled Tasks. If you like you may want to export the exact branch so that you can restore the key if necessary. This fix is so effective that it doesn't require a reboot and you can almost immediately determine yourself how much it speeds up your browsing processes.

How To Reinstall Windows Without Losing Anything.

How To Reinstall Windows Without Losing Anything.


Here Is Another Possible Solution:easy way and tested:

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
Press Enter.
If you have i386 on your drive, you can replace D: ( if D: is your cd drive ) with the location of it.
I've often need to do this to repair something that had gotten corrupted and didn't want to do a clean install.

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

Maximum Speed from Torrents.

Maximum Speed from Torrents.

The download speed mostly
depends on the seeder-to-leecher ratio (SLR). Poor download speed is
mainly a problem with new and very popular torrents where the SLR is
low.

(Proselytising sidenote: make sure you remember that you did not enjoy the low speed. Seed so that others will not endure the same.)

There are a couple of things that you can try on your end to improve your speed:

Do not immediately jump on new torrents

In
particular, do not do it if you have a slow connection. The best speeds
will be found around the half-life of a torrent, when the SLR will be
at its highest. (The downside is that you will not be able to seed so
much. It's up to you to balance the pros and cons of this.)



Limit your upload speed

The upload speed affects the download speed in essentially two ways:

* Bittorrent peers tend to favour those other peers that upload to
them. This means that if A and B are leeching the same torrent and A is
sending data to B at high speed then B will try to reciprocate. So due
to this effect high upload speeds lead to high download speeds.
*
Due to the way TCP works, when A is downloading something from B it has
to keep telling B that it received the data sent to him. (These are
called acknowledgements - ACKs -, a sort of "got it!" messages). If A
fails to do this then B will stop sending data and wait. If A is
uploading at full speed there may be no bandwidth left for the ACKs and
they will be delayed. So due to this effect excessively high upload
speeds lead to low download speeds.

The full effect is a
combination of the two. The upload should be kept as high as possible
while allowing the ACKs to get through without delay. A good thumb rule is keeping the upload at about 80% of the theoretical upload speed.
You will have to fine tune yours to find out what works best for you.
(Remember that keeping the upload high has the additional benefit of
helping with your ratio.)

If you are running more than one
instance of a client it is the overall upload speed that you must take
into account. Some clients (e.g. Azureus) limit global upload speed,
others (e.g. Shad0w's) do it on a per torrent basis. Know your client.
The same applies if you are using your connection for anything else
(e.g. browsing or ftp), always think of the overall upload speed.


Limit the number of simultaneous connections
Some
operating systems (like Windows 9x) do not deal well with a large
number of connections, and may even crash. Also some home routers
(particularly when running NAT and/or firewall with stateful inspection
services) tend to become slow or crash when having to deal with too
many connections. There are no fixed values for this, you may try 60 or
100 and experiment with the value. Note that these numbers are
additive, if you have two instances of a client running the numbers add
up.

Limit the number of simultaneous uploads

Isn't
this the same as above? No. Connections limit the number of peers your
client is talking to and/or downloading from. Uploads limit the number
of peers your client is actually uploading to. The ideal number is
typically much lower than the number of connections, and highly
dependent on your (physical) connection.


Just give it some time

As
explained above peers favour other peers that upload to them. When you
start leeching a new torrent you have nothing to offer to other peers
and they will tend to ignore you. This makes the starts slow, in
particular if, by change, the peers you are connected to include few or
no seeders. The download speed should increase as soon as you have some
pieces to share.

Why is my browsing so slow while leeching?

Your
download speed is always finite. If you are a peer in a fast torrent it
will almost certainly saturate your download bandwidth, and your
browsing will suffer. At the moment there is no client that allows you
to limit the download speed, only the upload. You will have to use a
third-party solution, such as NetLimiter.

Browsing was used just as an example, the same would apply to gaming, IMing, etc...

How To Make FIREFOX browser run at full speed

How To Make FIREFOX browser run at full speed

Firefox 1.5 and above, including Firefox 2.0.x limits the amount of time that a script or Javascript took to run and complete.

Whenever a web page takes too long to load, an error will pop up with the following message:

Warning : Unresponsive script
A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding.

You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.
Firefox Unresponsive Script

Users have two option buttons namely Stop Script or Continue.

Pressing Continue will likely to make the Firefox browser to remain sluggish or not responding, while Stop Script will inevitably cause part of the website depends on script not functioning properly, such as Java script menu, auto refresh or update of streaming live contents.
If you click on Continue, and yet script is still hanging, you will keep getting the Unresponsive Script error dialog again and again once the the preset maximum script running time hit, which is default to 5 seconds in Firefox 1.5 and 10 seconds in Firefox 2.

To get rid of the annoying Unresponsive Script error dialog and fix the behavior of script that takes long execution time in Firefox, we can longer the waiting time for script to run before Firefox intercept it with warning.

1.Run Firefox.

2. In the Firefox address bar, type about:config, and then press Enter.

3. Scroll and locate or search with Filter text box for dom.max_script_run_time.

4. Double click on the line of dom.max_script_run_time, and change the value to a higher number (in seconds) that you want Firefox to wait before getting the Unresponsive Script warning.

Be default, the value is 5 or 10 seconds. You can safely set the magical number to let’s say 20. You can set the value to 0 to instruct Firefox to wait foever - no warning and dialog whatsoever.

Note that the whole Firefox may be not responsive and cannot be used while waiting for scripts to execute, so the number should not set too high in order to give you an opportunity to stop truly nasty or buggy scripts and recover use of Firefox.

5. Click OK.
6. Restart Firefox.

Winxp System Response, reboot whitout rebooting

Winxp System Response, reboot whitout rebooting

Have you ever been using your computer and your system sudddenly stops responding in ways like it if you try to open something it just hangs? One time I tried deleting a folder and it said it was in use, but it really wasn't. If this ever happens to you, you can follow these simple steps to 'reboot' your computer without 'rebooting' it.

Press CRTL + ALT + DEL

Goto the 'processes' tab and click explorer.exe once and then click 'end process'.

Now, click File > New Task and type explorer.exe

Everything should be fine now! If the problem is major, I would recomend actually shutting down then starting up again

Make ur own security Tool

Make ur own security Tool



So you have read tons of tutorials , guides , FAQ's and you have some kind of image of what computer security is ... The next logical step that you should make is to start learning a programming language . I'm not going to describe each language ( its advantages and disadvantages ) because there are tons of paper that cover that ... Instead i will focus on just one language : Perl ( Practical Extraction and Reporting Language ) .
This language was written for manipulating text , but it has become one of the best languages available to programmers . You can write games , web applications , about everything you can think of . I wanna show you just how easy it is to write some security tools using Perl .

I'm going to start with a port scanner ... for those of you that don't know what a port scanner is , here is a little definition : a port scanner is a program that checks if a certain port is open ( by connecting to it ).

I.The port scanner

# scanner.pl
use strict;
use warnings;
use IO::Socket;
$|++;
my($host,$a,$b)=@ARGV;
map { my $s=IO::Socket::INET->new(PeerAddr=>$host,PeerPort=>$_);
print "$_ - open\n" if $s } ($a..$b);

That my friends is a very simple port scanner ! You can run it from your command line ( command prompt in windows or konsole in linux ) like this :

perl scanner.pl host_to_scan starting_port ending_port

II.The brute forcer

Perhaps you gained access to some computers , or you're just testing a password to see how strong it is . One of the most used encryption method is the md5 algorithm ( it's also the one used by the Linux/Unix/BSD Operating System ).
The md5 hash ( that's the name a password gets after it's being encrypted ) cannot be transformed back to its corresponding word . Let me give you an example : the word "security" after its md5 encryption will become the hash e91e6348157868de9dd8b25c81aebfb9 . Let's say you have the hash and you find out what word it is ... you would have to find a way to decrypt it , which isn't possible because md5 cannot be decrypted ... So that leaves you with the question : so how can i find out what word does a hash represent ? Well , since you can't decrypt it , why not try encrypting words and see if the resulting hash matches the hash we're trying to crack ?
Here's the perl code that does that :

# brute.pl
use strict;
use warnings;
use Digest::MD5 qw(md5_hex);
my $hash=shift || die "Give me a hash to crack\n";
my $file=shift || die "Give me a dictionary file\n";
open(F,$file) || die "can't open the file\n";
while()
{
print "Processing $_";
chomp($_);
my $t=md5_hex($_);
print " $t\n";
die "Found it -> $_\n" if($t eq $hash);
}

Here's how you run it :

perl brute.pl md5_hash_to_crack text_file

So you would have to supply it with an md5 hash and a dictionary file ( that has words in it , one per line ) . The script will read each of the words , encrypt it and check if the hash matches the hash we're trying to crack . If it does , we found the word !

This concludes the first part of building your own security tools . Next time we'll talk about creating a bot and keeping track of your filesystem.
