  3. [Hide all Desktop Icons] To hide all Desktop Icons from Explorer but still enable right-clicking on the desktop there is the following registry hack : Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced Name: HideIcons Type: REG_DWORD Value: 1 [Removing the Recycle Bin] Removing the Recycle Bin icon however, isn't as simple! Using a simple registry hack, here’s how you can remove the Recycle Bin from your Windows XP desktop: 1) Press Windows key + R (This brings up the Run dialog box) 2) Type regedit and press Enter (The open up Registry Editor) 3) Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Explorer\Destkop\NameSpace\ 4) Right-click on {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} and click Delete. 5) You can now close Registry Editor. After a restart, the Recycle Bin icon will be no longer be part of your Windows Desktop! [internet Explorer] Hmmm., I did not find anything on this icon removal in registry hacks. BUT I think you may fine the icon for this in the registry section of the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Explorer\Destkop\NameSpace\ They should be a registry controller for IE's icon in there. = = To get these unattended / silent registry entries added..., use the following: = example: REGEDIT /S myregs\mytestreg.reg = = to remove entries in the registry..,eithr do it manually useing regedit..., OR in your file, in front of each entry..., use a "-"(minus) then space the registry entry... This should according to MS delete the entry(ies) in the requested reg file. Hope this helps.. =) La8taz, Daemeon2
  4. Hi there, I am new here but not new to making windows do what I want.(hehehe) I just created my first Unattended windows cd. It took me, off and on, over 6 months to get it figured out and somewhat working without any line number errors. My questions are as follows: 1) Activation in MS virtual machine 2007...? is this possible?? 2) a) Can one create a Pre-Activated XP disk? I have seen HP and Dell disk like these with a OEM code on the outside of machine and something entirely different code in the registry. But yet when they install.., they do NOT ever need to activate..UNLESS you try to install them on a Standard built computer.., then they nag you until you install them back onto that dell or HP computer. B) I was wondering HOW this is done and could this be built for a REGULAR PC Tower? c) Any special version of XP needed to build this cd ?(xp pro,oem,retail,vl..etc..) 3) What files are needed in the "preactivated" disk deal ? 4) a) IF the original OS is OEM XP Pro AND it is already activated..., will this and the files from it be needed to create an unattened xp pro retail cd? B) or do I use a OEM XP Pro retail installed oembios and files ?? c) do I do just one of these methods ONLY to get it to auto-activate? d) Can this method above be used to create a corporate cd that will install and autoactivate on ANY pc?? 5) the section of GuiRunOnce .............. I have (3) .cmd batch files that are supposed to run after the unattend logs in for the first time. In Virtual PC, none of them will run no matter how/what I try. The main part works awesome and does, from what I can guess, the right deal. How can I get this 3 files to kick off and run like they are supposed to??? 6) I read up alot on this deal and even learned that you can set up features for Internet Exploder like the "clear internet cache on closing" deal using the IEAKit. It has a ton of options the work on. But the unnattend os only want the install.ins file. After login.., it shows it setting up the features of IE and outlook express and when itwas done, I checked what it did in the options. Nothing and I mean NOTHING was set in my IE options nor even my Outlook Express. I dont know w-t-heck I am doing wrong on this, soooo plz help if ya can.. Thanks. 7) For many years I worked as a tech doing cpu repairs and os installs. On 90% of the os installs, I and my team had to call MS to get them to unlock (activate) the XP on those machines. This was a total pain in the arse and took up waaaaaaaaaaaay tooo much time. Lately, it seems, that I am having to reload alot on my main pc. ( {7} reloads in less than a month) I, myself, am truly tired of calling MS to activate my XP. They treat me like crap and they talk to me like I an some kind of dumb-arse. I want to eliminate this agravating process so I can get on with my pc fun and enjoyment of redesigning xp pro.(making it faster as I would say) This is why all the questions above on the activation issues. I even call MS and asked them about this deal. They want tons of $$$ for which I dont got. Soooo I am here asking as I must say.., this site has been the most informative site on unattended installs of XP I have ever seen. Many Thanks goes out to all that helped and to those that own this site. =) 8) Final question of the night. Are there ANY other user friendly applications that will create this unattended cd more easily ?? I bought Almeza MultiSet recently as for they state that it can do it as well. (it is like a installer recorder application and works --so-so on OS installs) The application "nLite" wont seem to install correctly on my machine..(4 reinstalls due to .NET issues and this software) I have hunted for months and these are the only two i can find and have knowledge of. M-A-N-Y Thanks in your reading and helping on these issues. I cant handle getting no more grey hair !! ;-) Thanks, Daemeon2 P.S. here is my winnt.sif file [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes FileSystem=* UnattendSwitch="yes" WaitForReboot="Yes" DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore TargetPath=\WINDOWS AutoActivate=YES [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=35 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=THISI-SARET-AILCD-OFXPP-ROSP3 (THIS IS A RETAIL CD OF XP PRO SP3) FullName="Daemeon" OrgName="" ComputerName=DAKILLER [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 Vrefresh=85 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone AreaCode=478 [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 Language=00000409 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [Branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes IEBrandingFile=INSTALL.INS [URL] AutoConfig=0 Home_Page=http://www.google.com [IEPopupBlocker] BlockPopups=Yes FilterLevel=Low ShowInformationBar=No [WindowsFirewall] Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall [WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall] Mode = 0 [Proxy] Proxy_Enable=0 Use_Same_Proxy=1 [Components] AccessOpt = Off Chat = Off Dialer = Off Fax = Off Fp_extensions = Off Fp_vdir_deploy = Off Freecell = Off Hearts = Off Hypertrm = Off Media_clips = Off Media_utopia = Off Minesweeper = Off Msnexplr = Off Pinball = Off TerminalServer = Off TSWebClient = Off msmsgs = Off zonegames = Off [Shell] DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\install\main.cmd %systemdrive%\install\regfix.cmd %systemdrive%\install\appinst.cmd Here is my .cmd files ***MAIN.CMD*** @Echo off ECHO.
