  1. If you still see 100% with Process Explorer and it still does not show which process is eating CPU then most likely it is a rootkit that is hiding itself. In that case, reformat a few times!!!
  2. I use http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Locate/1044509669/1 myself...
  3. Hi, Nice update! You should let the user cancel the "Force Registry Reload". Also, yes you ask if user wish to quit via the exit button, but not the X. Simple enough. Private Sub frmMain_Closing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Closing ' Display a MsgBox asking the user to save changes or abort. If MessageBox.Show("Sure you wish to quit?", "VistaTweaker", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question) = DialogResult.Yes Then Also, that would be nice if the tooltips where instead displayed under Description as well. Makes it more user friendly. I always think it is more friendly to disable buttons when they are useless. For example, disable the Clear Tab button when the user has already clicked it. Same goes with Check All, Uncheck All, etc. Makes everything more obvious to the user on how everything works. At least in my humble opinion. Just noticed the "drag image" on bottom right of window next to Read... . This makes the user think you can change the size of the window when you can not. Perhaps you are working on that? Just checking... Like how everything dims out when you view about. But perhaps dim the tabs as well, that is System, Windows UI, etc. Would be even prettier. lol
  4. Hi, Anyone out there have the tool that was created years ago by a member here in which you can rename a KB windows hotfix from the context menu? It renames files such as WindowsXP-KB888076-x86-ENU.exe to KB888076.exe . Thanks, Will
  5. Please don't quote entire posts in the future. It is completely unnecessary.
  6. Simply change: EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes to: EncryptedAdminPassword=No You can not encrypt your password if you want autologin to work. Still not working? Trying this reg:
  7. Yes, though it is a lot easier to just hide it. So first hide windows messenger on windows/microsoft update. Restart PC into safe mode via F8. Copy this file: %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb To: $OEM$\$$\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb
  8. i haven't thought about it yet. but at the very least, will be free. Hey,That's all good, but open source is best, if possible. At least major releases? For example v0.5, 1.0, 1.1, etc. ? If not, it's all good. I just love OS. Good job btw, looks great! Will test function later in the week, when I have more time... Though here is a quick suggestion... I noticed check all and uncheck all (perhaps should be renamed to select all and unselect all, sounds better) really do that. Um, I expect that only the tweaks on that tab would be checked or unchecked, not every single one. Perhaps that should be Enable All Tweaks, Disable All Tweaks, or something. Thanks, Will
  9. RTM and Retail are the same exact build! There are no differences. It is exactly the same. Bit for bit! Just to be clear! Retail just means it's sold at a store. That's all! RTM just means that build is the official build of the software. So Vista RTM and Retail are both Windows Vista build 6000. A pre RTM build would be a lower build number. Such as the beta and RC releases.
  10. Here is what I use, which works just fine: ;Active Desktop Safe Mode Wallpaper [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\General] "Wallpaper"=hex(2):25,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,72,00,6f,00,6f,00,\ 74,00,25,00,5c,00,5c,00,57,00,65,00,62,00,5c,00,5c,00,57,00,61,00,6c,00,6c,\ 00,70,00,61,00,70,00,65,00,72,00,5c,00,5c,00,57,00,61,00,6c,00,6c,00,70,00,\ 61,00,70,00,65,00,72,00,2e,00,62,00,6d,00,70,00,00,00 ;Current User Wallpaper [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "TileWallpaper"="0" "Wallpaper"="%systemroot%\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Wallpaper.bmp" "WallpaperStyle"="0" ;Default User Wallpaper [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop] "TileWallpaper"="0" "Wallpaper"="%systemroot%\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Wallpaper.bmp" "WallpaperStyle"="0"
  11. Hi, This should help. At least you can see which registry keys they are... Take Care, Will
  12. This is an english forum buddy. Anyways:
  13. Hi, Another one: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Remove Intel Graphics Options Context Menu From The Desktop [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxcui] This removes the intel graphics options context menu from the desktop which results in the menu loading a lot faster on older computers with intel graphics. Take Care, Wil
  14. Could also be bad registry entries at: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\DefaultIcon]
  15. Hi,Yeah sorry have not had the time to update it. And not going to now since Vista Service Pack 1 beta is due any day now (which will include all of them). Well I personally do not do any Vista unattended installs. I simply install the hotfixes in an image I have created with the new built in imaging software in Vista Ultimate. And of course install them on my live system as well. And thanks toastycheese678! Take Care, Will PS: No real new updates until SP1 is out. I have switched back to WinXP until then. Vista was p***ing me off too much!

  18. Perhaps you could try installing with other RAM then and then once it is installed and booting correctly then put in your 2GB and see if it will boot. May I ask why you wan to run Win98SE so bad? You could always run it as a virtual PC with Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 or VMware Player . Both are free!!
  19. Are you talking about P2P or just websites and services like slacker.com, winamp, youtube.com, etc? If P2P that should be pretty easy to explain. Talk about how they are infected with virus, spam, malware, etc. If you just mean in general then yeah good luck!! lol So you make it sound like it is a bandwidth issue? Not enough bandwdith, too many users, what? Perhaps talk about workplace ethics and how playing video games, listening to music, and watching tv/videos, is counter productive. And that any serious business would not allow this. Like of course not. In the end they will probably still hate you. Sorry for the bad news!!! ha-ha
  20. Just get a router with a hardware firewall and anti-virus. Best solution!!! I highly recommend http://www.astaro.com/products/astaro_security_gateway . They have a great software solution as well. But I personally never use anti-virus or firewall on my PC at home.
  21. Perhaps this makes a difference? http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Vista...ge/1159994557/1
  22. Um, so what would you like us to do about this? Um, buy a new one? I believe only USB 2.0 drivers that meet speed requirements are supported. They are so cheap today, just buy a new one m8!
  23. Like I said 3aces, that is one that minimizes to the system tray not the task bar. Nitroshift, search google m8. Should find a few hundred!
  24. Um, not see that anywhere. There are tons of them that allow you to minimize to system tray (notification area) though....
