  1. @mritter that is a bummer i was just about to send you my config file until you posted that last comment,, thanks for looking into the issue,, its nice to see im not the only one with this problem.. let me know if you still want mine,, its nothing much just kinda chicken scratch at the moment,, most things are place holders.

  2. hi, im finally getting a chance to update my old version of wpi from a few years back,, well im having a small cosmetic issue that kinda bugs me, can you tell me how to fix the line spacing for the categorys,, it seems in the picture below,, the security category, is bunched in with the tweaks with out any line spacing..

    any ideals ? btw the theme is vista ultimate but its not theme related atleast i dont think so but i could be wrong, but anyways ive tested this out with kels vista theme too. same issue


  3. well this isnt my work im just ccp the info for you,, i hope it will help

    Need to find out where programs launch themselves from? Check out the following or if you want to know for without a lot of searching. A good solution is to download AutoStart Guard, the Freeware Autostart Viewing, Alerting & Control System for Window.

    * RunServiceOnce subkey : designed to start service programs before user logs on and before other registry subkeys start.

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce registry key

    o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce registry key

    * RunServices subkey : loads immediately after RunServicesOnce and before user logon.

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices registry key

    o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices registry key

    * Run subkey : The Run subkey in HKLM runs immediately before the Run subkey in HKCU.

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key

    o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key

    * RunOnce subkey : primarily used by Setup programs. The HKLM subkey version of RunOnce runs programs immediately after logon and before other registry Run entries. The HKCU subkey version of RunOnce runs programs after Run subkeys and after the Startup folder.

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce registry key

    o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce registry key XP also has RunOnceEx:

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx registry key

    * RunOnce\Setup subkey : specifies programs to run after the user logs on

    * Explorer\Run subkey :

    o HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run registry key

    o HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run registry key

    * Userinit subkey : there is an entry for userinit.exe but subkey can accept multiple comma- separated values. Can't find where program starting? Look here.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Userinit registry key

    * load subkey :

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\load registry key

    * All Users Startup folder : very common place to find autostart programs for whoever logs on

    Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder

    * Startup folder : the most common location for programs to automatically boot from

    Documents and Settings\user\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder If you migrated from NT, the path is Profiles\user\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

  4. ok guys we have a acer aspire 5301 laptop and its been reset a few times so this is kinda routine but this time i have an issue

    to start off the laptop loads the windows fine its currently running xp pro and its running ok normally

    but every now and again we do a clean install to upgrade secuirty fixes blaa blaa blaa via xpcd's

    well any ways this time upon doing the clean install,, we get about to the point of loading all the files but then thats it,, it wont go as far as hard drive layouts, meaning partitioning and so forth

    it comes up with an error saying some thing like setup can not continue because the system cant find any hard disks

    does any body have any ideals on why this error is happening,, at first i thought maybe it took a knock and got a loose cable but then i thought that couldnt be the cause because if i just let the laptop be,, it will load up just fine the os thats on it right now

    this is a very strange issue,, does any body have any ideals on what we should do ?

  5. You guys should give this site a look: Viper.

    Enjoy, John.

    hmmmm very interesting,, sorry to point this out but it dosnt seem like youve noticed/read the second post in this thread,, all youve done,, is link to the very same site,,,

  6. well that looks good an all but keep in mind it dosnt show the changes for sp3,, so unless your only going to use sp2 then its not really all that helpful

  7. well your problem is here


    even though you create a $oem$ folder it dosnt mean a folder named $oem$ is being created in the system drive it just carrys files over to their proper locations

    try omitting the $oem$ portion in your line like this and see if that works for you

  8. hi all, well a friend of mine brought me their pc because its having problems,, well to start off it was a ntldr currupt and i fixed that,, and then the list went on..

    but any ways now to the problem,, the pc is an older HP about 4 or so years old,, and afte its running for say 5 or so minutes, the pc shuts off almost completly,, the processor, all fans,and the monitor,, but yet the hard drive keeps runing ,, this is a very strange problem,

    does any body have any ideal on what this issue could be caused by, ??

  9. ahh i see well thanks alot guys for your advice,, and no post count isnt really a big issue because if it was i would of padded it years ago,,

    this was more like an annoyance / curiosity thing..

    thanks again..

  10. hi this is a strange problem, i noticed today,, that even though ive posted 3 times today and a few posts in the last few days, my post count hasnt changed, and i really have no ideal on how long this has been going on for, and im sure ive had the same post count for a good while now..

    is any body else having any problems like this ?

    mods can you tell me please whats going on ?


    after posting this post,, my post count went up by 1,, making its 1940,, but whats strange is that ive posted 4 times today now,, and its only counting once..

  11. GIGABYTE UNITED INC.announces the launch of their full range of Dynamic Energy Saver motherboards, including X48, X38 and P35-based motherboards, delivering unparalleled power savings of up to 70% and up to 20% improved power efficiency with the simple click of a button.

    "With more than one year of intensive design and testing, GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver represents a truly amazing revolution in motherboard development," said Johnson Lin, CEO GIGABYTE UNITED INC . "With one little click, users are able to take advantage of up to 70% CPU power savings without sacrificing computing performance. Imagine the potential for power savings on a global scale if every motherboard in the world was able to provide similar power savings."

    Featuring an advanced proprietary software and hardware design, including high quality components from Intersil, GIGABYTE Dynamic Energy Saver is a unique technology that provides exceptional power savings and improved power efficiency. The unique multi-gear power phase design of GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver allows for the most efficient switching of power phases depending on CPU workload. When the CPU workload is light or at idle, the Dynamic Energy Saver downshifts gears and only allows the minimum required power phases needed to accomplish the task to operate. By turning off the power phases that are not needed, GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver is able to dramatically save power, up to 70% compared to traditional motherboards, that would normally have been wasted. As soon as the workload increases, Dynamic Energy Saver recognizes that more power is needed and is able to shift into higher gear, turning on power phases as they are needed.

    Unlike traditional power designs that keep all power phases active at all times no matter what the loading, GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver features multiple gears, allowing the CPU to maintain optimum power efficiency from light all the way to heavy loading. In a traditional power phase design, each gear needs to operate at less than optimum efficiency, causing gaps in power efficiency. With the ability to switch on and off gears before they start to loose efficiency, GIGABYTE's Dynamic Energy Saver is able to provide up to 20% improved power efficiency.
