  1. if the laptop lid is closed it enters sleep on no battery when i noticed it would lockup upon resume being a black screen or the "locked" screen with cursor disabled and nothing responding with the power light green as if it resumed normally which only a reboot would resolve. 99% related to the same sleep but some dell users were experiencing and a few had some solutions but i own a different laptop then them being a emachine D620 which im not sure where to disable wake on usb if its even possible and what not. in the mean time i have disabled sleep and will ahve it in hibernation if anyone has any ideas please share. also i could go into sleep and out of sleep its only when its been in a sleep peroid of awhile "i dont know how long" would it freeze upon resume. im guessing its when the laptop goes from sleep to hibernation over a peroid of time maybe? ive heard that it auto hibernates over a peroid of 320 minutes or something in sleep.
  2. so randomly every now and then it would tell me i dont have permission to delete a folder or to save a file to disk here and there but if i were to wait say oh 1-2 minutes it would perform the action without issue.... if i unzip a folder i may delete it without issue, if i unzip that folder and go into the folder i must wait a minute or two to delete the folder/files. No files are in use by windows being installers etc... i have gone over numerous things to be checked to ensure i have FULL OWNERSHIP and ADMIN rights over the account im using with UAC completly off. has anyone else expeianced this at all? at first ithoguht it was a FF bug since i couldent save to my desktop but after i couldent delete zip files then i noticed there was something wrong. It WILL allow me to delete the files inside the folder then delete the folder but not delete the folder while the files are inside the folder.... I do have multiple Services disabled and i have disabled the user group policies under gpedit.msc "i renabled them later" i thoguht it fixed it but apparently not. also have tried re-enabling ALL services. maybe im missing one idk. i dont believe i disabled any critical service related to file permissions or what not. If UAC is on it will have another pop up prior to this one in the screen show askign for permission then this one pops up after... http://phishcave.com/upl/l0HNahqsM4.png Unable to find any related information other then simular bugs related to firefox and some other vista issues which are resolved by giving ownership which in my case i have ownership over the whole drive... open to any suggestions of things to check or fixes. if any furthur details are needed please ask.
  3. figured it out just needed to register hmmapi.dll
  4. no one can tell me what files/registry entries are needed to make this work? i have the registry entries in place with the hotmail register program but it tells me the file is missing still so theres a shorcut somewhere missing for this to work. not sure what and where...
  5. installing windows live mail works fine but i STILL CANNOT get it to HOTMAIL. I DONT WANT WINDOWS LIVE MAIL just a simple shortcut in startmenu section.
  6. no i do not believe i kept anything to do with that new mail client. considering all im trying to accomplish is a shortcut in startmenu to www.hotmail.com why would i need anything more then a simple reg entry and the file located somewhere...
  7. yea in xp it was usbport.sys which you could patch manually with a public tool but idk of any public ones to patch the vista or what file that needs to be patched.
  8. I recently installed Vista ultimate Vlited down and noticed theres no option to set the default email program. after downloading a tool called RegisterHotmail.exe i managed to create the hotmail into the default program area. allthough when i click on the shortcut it tells me it may have been moved renamed etc... and asks if i want to remove the icon instead of opening hot mail in either firefox or ie7. I believe its just not opening the shortcut link and i would liek to know if im missing a registry setting somewhere for the shortcut needs to be put in place somewhere.
  9. For some reason before addind other context menus to my computer through registry it would show. Ive figured out if i remove [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\services] "SuppressionPolicy"=dword:4000003c it will show and work fuctionally. What exactly does the suppressionpolicy do? ive tried finding information on it but cant seem to figure it out. Will there not be any issues by simply removing it? Under any website/forum describing how to add Services to context menu of my computer shows that it is needed to be added. Though so far i have experiancd no issues by removing it.
  10. Nice package of tweaks i went through the ALL folder and reconfigured some a few things to my settings.

  11. Could you possibly add the abiltiy to add your own values for certain tweaks in a future verson Ex. The menu delay/Time to kill process etc... I currently have a reg file to do all that but it maybe handy for others who dont know about it to beable to set different values according to there preference.
  12. for nvida coudlent you just have the Decompressed driver folder to your windows directory before you make the iso cd? i believe if the inf file is in the same folder it will perform the install thoguh im not 100% sure
  13. Is there any way possible to combine the two cds to install XP pro with home edition instead of having to upgrade every time? Both copies are legit so im curious if theres a way to do this. If theres no way how would i go about my install for least amount of issues? 1.Install norma XP Home SP1, Then Install XP Pro with Slipstreamed SP2/Hot fixes 2.Install Home Slipstreamed and hotfixed then upgrade to XP pro Trying to consolidate everything to one install if its possible. Do you think if i contacted microsoft for a windows XP pro with sp 2 cd they would deliver?
