List of the keyboard shortcuts that are available in Windows

Getting used to using your keyboard exclusively and leaving your mouse behind will make you much more efficient at performing any task on any Windows system. I use the following keyboard shortcuts every day:

Windows key + R = Run menu

This is usually followed by:
cmd = Command Prompt
iexplore + "web address" = Internet Explorer
compmgmt.msc = Computer Management
dhcpmgmt.msc = DHCP Management
dnsmgmt.msc = DNS Management
services.msc = Services
eventvwr = Event Viewer
dsa.msc = Active Directory Users and Computers

Windows key + F = Search

Windows key + D = Hide/Display all windows

CTRL + C = copy

CTRL + X = cut

CTRL + V = paste

Stop Yahoo From Tracking You

Stop Yahoo From Tracking You


1. Go to the address

Code:: http://privacy.yahoo.com/privacy

and click the "Cookies" link under the "Special Topics" column.

2. Click the "Web Beacons" link under the "Reference Links" Column.

3. On this page, click the "click here to opt out" link toward the end of the third paragraph under the "Outside the Yahoo! Network" title.

4. After a while, a page that says you have been out of the monitoring program will load. Without doing anything, close that page or continue your usual surfing by typing another address in the address bar. (Do NOT click the "Cancel Opt-out" button, your action will be canceled!)

5. You're done! Now Yahoo! will not record what you're doing during surfing.

You can let your friends that might be interested know about this; since no matter how "innocent" it may seem, it's still a violation of privacy

Did you know that Yahoo now tracks every LINK or AD that a user MAY HAVE SEEN ON THE PAGE. They now accumulate 1 tetra-byte of data every 2 days

How to get rid of Restart Now/Restart Later

found this after a lot of Googling, so I'd like to share the solution. This may not be new or even advanced but it surely helped me...
Anyone who is running Windows XP SP2 knows about this. The most annoying, ill-designed dialog box ever invented in the history of the computers that asks "Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?"

And there are only two options: Restart Now/Restart Later. "Restart Later" means that this thing will ask you again in 10 minutes. If you're willing to work for the next 4 hours until lunch before rebooting, this means you'll need to answer this question 24 times. It also steals the focus.

to get rid of it:

Start / Run / gpedit.msc / Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update / Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations

You can configure how often it will nag you (I re-configured it for 720 minutes, which means I'll be asked twice on a work day), or completely disable it.

a reboot is needed.Enjoi

If scanning with multiple antispyware programs doesn't remove it, try using Windows' System Restore feature (note that Windows 2000 lacks System Restore). Select Start, Programs (or All Programs), Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Choose Restore my computer to an earlier time, click Next, pick the earliest Restore Point available on the displayed calendar, and follow the prompts.

Should System Restore fail to solve the problem, your next steps are to reboot your PC and press before your monitor switches resolution as Windows loads. At the resulting menu, select Safe Mode with a Command Prompt, and then pick your operating system. At the command prompt, type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, press , and try running System Restore from there.
If your PC is still infected after this, I must make like Dear Abby and recommend that you seek the assistance of a professional. Contact the support desks of your various security software vendors, one of which may have the solution.
try community approach, create a verus technical report on ur system's suspicious Windows behavior and post it on one of the the many web forums.
If all else fails, back up your data folders and get ready to reformat the PC's hard drive and restore your system from a full backup. If you don't have an image backup of your drive, you'll have to reinstall Windows, install and update your malware protection, and restore your data from the backup. See "Move All of Your Valuable Data to a New Partition" for a list of the folders that likely contain your data. Instead of moving the folders (as that tip suggests), copy them to CDs, DVDs, or an external hard drive.
Of course, reformatting and restoring your drive is easies

Speed UP ur Computer

Following these steps will increase the "speed" of your computer dramatically.

1)-- Clean up the disk. Uninstall unneeded programs (especially those that run at startup and/or put something in the system tray), run Disk Cleanup, and defragment the drive. This is a good first step that will almost always take a few seconds off boot time and application loads for any computer.

2)-- Stomp auto-starting programs. Click Start > Run and type "msconfig" at the prompt. Click the Startup tab and look at all that junk that loads when you launch your PC. Do you really need "Adobe Reader Speed Launch"? Probably not. Turn off anything else that looks useless, but be careful not to disable your anti-virus and important system components.

3)-- Run a full anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. I would recommend using AVG Free Anti-virus, Spybot - Search and Destroy spyware remover and Ad-aware spyware remover. These programs are all free.

4)-- Clean up the registry. CCleaner is free and worth running. It will also remove unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space.

Those are the easy and free things you can do. If your computer is still slow you need to move on to the bigger guns.

1)-- Upgrade RAM. This is the one killer trick that will make almost any computer run faster. With an older PC, you will rarely have enough RAM to run today's memory-hogging operating systems and applications, and adding a high-capacity stick or two of quality RAM will give you a quick speed boost. Adding RAM is fairly simple, even for a novice, and you should be able to do the job in 5 or 10 minutes.You can run a free test at http://www.crucial.com and find out what kind of RAM (memory) your computer needs.

2)-- Reinstall Windows. If the above tricks haven't helped, it may be time to wipe the slate clean and start again, reformatting your hard drive, reinstalling your applications, and restoring your data files from a backup. You'd be surprised how much more responsive a freshly reinstalled Windows system can be, as you've wiped out years of temp files, garbled registry entries, old versions of software programs that have been upgraded repeatedly, and all sorts of other electronic junk. Reinstalling is easy if you have the "recovery disk" that came with your PC, and only a bit more involved if you're using a retail copy of Windows XP. Just be sure you back up everything you want to take with you before you pull the trigger!

3)-- Upgrade your hard drive. This is a more complicated solution, but if you're reinstalling Windows (per the prior tip) you might consider upgrading to a bigger and possibly faster hard drive, too. Hard disk storage is a performance bottleneck on every machine, and magnetic disks degrade over time. Some performance issues could be caused by a failing hard drive, even, and upgrading to a new model could really put some zip back in your system. As a bonus, you can use the original hard drive for backups or occasional storage, if you put it in an enclosure.

Tweek Bandwidth for XP

Increase XP network or adsl by 20%, A nice reg hack to Increase BROADBAND:

this ones simple:

this is for broad band connections. I didn't try it on dial up but might work for dial up.

1.make sure your logged on as actually "Administrator". do not log on with any account that doesn't have administrator privileges.
2. start - run - type gpedit.msc
3. expand the "local computer policy" branch
4. expand the "administrative templates" branch
5. expand the "network branch"
6. Highlight the "QoS Packet Scheduler" in left window
7. in right window double click the "limit reservable bandwidth" setting
8. on setting tab check the "enabled" item
9. where it says "Bandwidth limit %" change it to read 0

reboot and your all done.

Some simple Xp tips

1.Remove "Logoff" from the start menu >>

>> You might want to remove the "logoff" buton from the start menu if u never use it.this involves a registry tweak .go to the start menu , click "run" and type in "regedit". this will take u to the registry editor .Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer.Right click in the right pane and create a new DWORD value .Name this value "StartMenuLogoff".Give it a value of "1" and restart your computer .'Logoff' will no longer be visible in the start menu.

2.Bypass The Rcycle Bin When Deleting Files >>

>> Right-click on the recycle bin and choose 'properties'.In the 'Global' tab, check the box that says"Do not move files to the recycle bin ..."That's it.No more taking out the garbage!

3. The 'Copy To..' And 'Move To..' context options >>

>> To add the 'Copy To..' and 'Move To..' context menu options, create the follwing registry keys: HKEY_CLASSES-ROOT\AllFilesyatemObjects\shellex\contextMenuHandl ers\ Copy To HKEY_CLASSES-ROOT\AllFilesyatemObjects\shellex\contextMenuHandl ers\ Move To
For 'Copy To', set the value to "{C2FBB630-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}", and for 'Move To', set the value to
"{C2FBB631-2971-11d1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}" .Henceforth, when you right-click on a file or folder, above the 'Send To' options,you'll see two new options-"Copy To Folder" and"Move To Folder".
Using this, you can copy or move files or directories to other folders.

4. REmoving the short cut sign >>

>> Shortcut icons have a small curved arrow in the lower-left corner. To remove this arrow:
1. Start the Registry Editor.
2. Locate the keys
3. Delete the value IsShortcut under both these keys.
4. Close the Registry Editor and restart

5. Speed up your modem >>>

>> Even if your modem is working well, the baud rate of your COM port might not allow you to reach top-speeds. To improve the port's speed:
1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel >
2. Under the Device Manager tab, click the '+' sign next to Ports (COM & LPT).
3. Select the port your modem uses (usually COM2), click Properties, and on the Port Settings tab set the Bits per second to 115200 bps.

6 . Adding items to send to >>

>> Send To is an option available when you right click any file in Windows. You can use this feature not only for copying or moving files, but also for quickly opening files with programs they are not associated with it. For example, you could create a shortcut to Notepad and send any ASCII text file (like .HTM files) to Notepad.
1. Browse to the \Windows\SendTo folder using Windows Explorer.
2. Right-click an empty space on the window and select New > Shortcut.
3. In the Create Shortcut window, use the Browse button to select the program or the directory for the shortcut.
4. Click Next and Finish to create the shortcut.

7. Automatic logon >>

>> If Windows asks you for a user name and password every time it is started, you can have it log on automatically:
1. Open the Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Winlogon and add the following String values:
2. Double-click on each of them to enter their respective data. Set the value of AutoAdminLogon to 1. Enter your user name and password in the DefaultUserName and DefaultPassword items respectively.

8 .Short cut of Shutdown - Restart >>

>> It is possible to shutdown or restart Windows immediately, without waiting for a confirmation.
1. Right-click on the Desktop and click New > Shortcut.
2. In the Command line box, type 'C:\Windows\rundll.exe user.exe,ExitWindows'.
3. Click Next, name the shortcut Shutdown Windows and click Finish.
Similarly, to create a shortcut to restart, type 'C:\Windows\rundll.exe user.exe,ExitWindowsExec' for the Command line.

9. When keyboard lights aren't enough, hear the sound of locking

>> Sure your keyboard has small lights (LEDs) to indicate if your CAPS, NUM and SCROLL lock keys are on or off. When you're busy typing you might accidentally hit one of these locks which might force you to retype.

Here's how to make your computer beep whenever any of the lock keys change state:

* Go to the Control Panel

* Double click Accessibility Options

* Turn on the ToggleKeys checkbox

* Click OK

10. Renaming Desktop Icons

>> You can easily rename various Desktop (System Icons).

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT. Navigate to the following Registry brach:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\CLSID

The Desktop Icons are located in the sub keys as follows:

My Network Places: {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
My Computer: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
My Documents: {450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
Recycle Bin:{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
Default IE Icon: {871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}

Double click the Default value in the above keys and enter the text you desire. Right click on the Desktop and select Refresh to see the changes.

To undo the changes, just right click on the Default value and select Delete. Refresh the Desktop to see that things are back to normal.

11. Remotely shutdown a computer

>> Probably the most useful trick of is being able to shut down the computers on a network.For this
create a new shortcut using right-click -> New -> Shortcut and type 'shutdown.exe -i'. Open the newly created shortcut and there you have it. You can shutdown a computer on your network or even schedule a shutdown.
Choose 'Add' and type the IP address or name of a computer on your network.

12. Change Start Menu display speed

>> I didn't bought a brand new Pentium 4 and 1 GB of RAM just to wait until Start Menu shows the menu I hover.
Open the Registry Editor by typing 'regedit' at Run (Start -> Run). Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop and change MenuShowDelay to a smaller value, 50 for example.

13. Customize Internet Explorer title bar

>> You may wonder... this can't be very useful. Well, you can use it to personalize computers if you are a local computer manufacturer, or personalize all the browser in your company with your company's name or your own name.Open Group Policy utility either by selecting it from Administrative Tools or using Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc. In the right side of the window navigate to User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Browser User Interface and double click the 'Browser Title' item in that list. Check 'Customize Title Bars' and input the title you wish.

14. Closing Error Reporting (Win XP)

>> Error reporting, what is it and why does Microsoft want you to have it on? Basically whenever your computer crashes Win XP makes a little report of what went wrong and then sends it to Microsoft so they can improve the Windows Operating System. Generally it sounds like a nice idea, but do you really want to be sending reports about your computer to Microsoft? I personally don't and they allow you to shut off this feature. Here's how you do it:

1. Open your control panel
2. Click on Performance and Maintenance
3. Then click on System
4. Go to the Advance Tab
5. Click on the Error Reporting button at the bottom
6. Select Disable Error Reporting
7. Click the "But notify me when a critical error occurs"
8. Click Ok Twice.

You can leave out step 7, but I like my operating system to tell me when its had a major error, mainly because I can look up the cause of the error and hopefully find a solution to it on the net or at Microsoft. There you have it, error reporting to Microsoft is off and you don't have to worry about sending a report to Bill Gates.

Hope these tricks helps u in some way .

How To Limit Your Children's Access Times On A Computer

How to regulate your children's access times on a computer

If you want to regulate your children's' access times on their computer when you can't personally supervise them Windows XP provides a tool to do this.

To access this tool you must log on with an administrator account.

After you log on, use the Windows Command Prompt.

Click Start/ Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt.

At the Command Prompt type the following:

net user AccountName /times:

Replace "AccountName" with your child's Windows account name.

Finish by adding specific times to the end of the command as shown below.

These will be the times during which your child can log onto Windows as normal.

Any time not included is restricted.

You can specify a day or days along with a time range.

For example, use the following to allow computer use only on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.:

net user AccountName /times:Sa,9AM-5PM

You can also specify a range of days.

For example, use the following to allow computer use Monday through Friday from 4p.m. to 10 p.m.:

net user AccountName /times:M-F,4PM-10PM

You can even set different schedules together.

For example, use the following to allow computer use Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.:

net user AccountName /times:M-F,4PM-10PM;Sa,9AM-5PM

To indicate days of the week use the abbreviations M, T, W, Th, F, Sa and Su.

To indicate times, use only whole hours.

If you use multiple schedules separate each with a semicolon as in the above example.

To remove the restrictions you set use the following command:

net user AccountName /times:ALL

In combination with the above, you can use a filtering program which prevents children from accessing inappropriate web pages (or any specific pages you want to restrict).


How to burn an iso image to a cd
This tutorial will help you burn an image to a cd.

For this tutorial I will be using Nero because its the best one to use or you can use magic iso or ultra iso but for me Nero is fast. :)
If you would lke another tutorial with a different program post it here and I will be glad to help. Bare in mind that I used an old version of nero that came with my pc, but the old nero should have the same thing just better graphix

First pop in a cd to your disc drive( easiest step :thing:)( Depending on how big your iso image is you might need a dvd rom instead of a cd rom.)
(Example: 678 mb=cd rom; 2 gigs=dvd-rom, anything over 700 mbs will need a dvd-rom)

Second open up Nero:

Next go to the copy and back up icon and click on burn image to cd:
After that, you will get a window
After that make sure that you change the files of type to "all files" or else you wont be able to view your iso image
Next go to the location where you have saved you iso file and click on it
After you click on your iso image you will get a screen
hoose the options that you find reasonable and finally press next

You will get a screen that looks like this indicating that your image is burning to your cd:
Finally, just wait til the process is done and you will have successfully burned an image to a cd.
