    Hotfix repack

    Welcome to MSFN Actually there is someone that has already done this for you. Check out my post here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=89060 There are 3 ms xp sp2 update packs out there and all are little different. Ryans seems to be the most popular since hes been doing it the longest. vote for your favorite one if you try & compare them.
  2. yep. I wish there was a way to get rid of pic & fax viewer without issues like this but there is not. Also does not allow user pics which I dont like that either. The pic and fax viwer is a huge security issue. I have gotten some really nasty spywear from it.
  3. Ok simple question from experence only not being partial to any persons pack here. Who's pack would you recomend someone to use? If there is another you use outside of these please post the name and your experence. Please give details on your experence. I myself have used ryans and have now considered using one of the others in hopes that issues I'm having may disappear. Minimal reg entries are my concern & Xable's pack seems to try to do that but does it have any drawbacks that I may not see comming? Here is ryans page that explains the 3 packs for more detail. http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2423
  4. I also was wondering if having these 2 reg tweaks in place could be the issue. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server"=dword:00000014 "MaxConnectionsPerServer"=dword:00000014 They control the amount of connections you can get. I have never had an issue with them but I was wondering if anyone has had an issue with these? Am I using them correctly (formatting)?

  6. I just found something interesting. There was a Windows update on Aug 11,2006 is a fix for DNS resolution error. This would have been part of ryans update back back in august (2.1.1). Has anyone had issues with this update? What about hfslip users? This might be the update that is causing issues. Does anyone know how to remove an update from ryans pack or somehow isolate the files for removal. PLEASE ADVISE!

  8. wow what a strage problem. Thats actually kinda cool I never thought you could get all those control panel applits to show up under my computer. I have just 2 that I added. Perhaps I might add 1 or 2 more. As for your question just add a reg entry with the strings you want deleted to cmdlines or during runonce that should remove them once your into windows.
  9. Actually the extra fonts are used for MS equation which is part of MS office. My girlfriend could not use it with those fonts gone. But puting them back is easy.
  10. Thats a reg entry in nlite. Its under show version info on desktop. Personaly I like that. But if you need to turn it off search for show version info reg entry. Then just change the value. Glad I could help. Now do you got any idea about my wireless packet issue located in this tread. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=88507 I could really use anyones help. It seems that this is a prevasive issue with many nlite users but a fix eludes this group.
  11. gkar I actually disable my nic and 1394 from networking as I exclusively use wireless for my connection with every pc I have. As for your other suggestion I have done it on the wireless card and the others are disabled so why would that make a difference? Also I incorporate these reg entries into my install so dosn't that make all the networking adaptors get setup the same. Perhaps adding these reg entries either later or earlyer in the install would make a difference? I have seen reg entries that can not be added after or some before a certain point. However, i'll try anything now. So Ill see what happens when I reset them all then disable 1394 and my nic and try wifi again. THANKS
  12. Here is my last session file. I'll try anything to fix this but I did a really large install a while back and removed almost nothing & it still had this issue. THANKS TUX for taking a look.
  13. Well I have access to 2 different access points & it does occur on both. However it occurs on one sometimes more then on the other. Like the other day I was using the weaker signal (my friends) and was able to get packets to go back and forth but was losing the signal due to its strength. I could perfectly connect to the other access point (mine) and the signal was stronger but no packets would go back and forth. That was one of the first times I had that happen. Later that day about 3-4hrs later I got connected to mine and I never reset the router. After using my friends connection for a while mine eventually started to work out of the blue. This is why I know its not at the router level. I also have some wired pc's to the router and they never act up. With these types of occurances & the way this acts on dial up it leads me to believe this is something in the tcp/ip protocal. Perhaps a setting that I have never changed but microsoft did with an update a few months back and it only affects wireless and dial up respectively. Perhaps its some kind of conflict at the protocal level. Like the packets are slamming into each other instead of doing what there supposed to do. The problem goes away once you have a connection that starts to behave after 10-20 mins or if you stay connected like I do for days. My parents on the other hand dont have the option to stay connected for days and have to deal with this every time they dial up. My mom says she does not even enjoy the internet anymore. I really hope I can uncover what is causing this and change or fix it.
  14. No way tux you have this problem to? Does anyone with dial-up have this. I mean on dial up its really really really bad. You cant even use the internet because of this problem. I dont know how to fix it on my parents pc.
  15. ok this is really strange no one has anything. I was really hopping someone in this great community would be able to help me a lil with this.
  16. HI ALL-- Basicly every time I turn my pc on I have to wait once connected to the wireless network to actually get a response back . This wait is never less then 5 mins and usually never more then 20 mins. I have tried everything I can think of to figure out why my pc basicly has to have a warm wifi card/modem to work. Please read below if you can help. My pc has wireless & my parents has dial up A few ms updates back this happened around Ryans 2.1.1 I think it started & I'm completely lost as to why. Here is what I have tried and why I'm certain something in Ryans pack could be the culprit or at least something thats new in one of the updates that MS added or a reg entry outside of TCP-IP. Here is what I have tried: 1. I have reset all TCP-IP setting to both optimized and standard reg entries of windows xp. I used SG TCP Optimizer to do this then captured those reg entries and included them in my install cd. SG TCP Optimizer can be found here: http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php 3. Tried renewing my IP. Pinging my conection and all that. 2. I have tried updating drivers, yet the old ones do the same as the newer ones and the old ones were part of my install before the problem appeared. 3. I have tried putting back stuff removed from previous nlite discs that I could always remove without issues yet nothings made a difference. I have used nlite since the early alpha stage (.95 I believe, 04 sometime) and have narrowed down a lot of components that can and can not be removed over the course of using it. Things are always changing within the updates and new depedancies are always popping up. 4. Also reg entries are always changing or changing how they work. I have been lucky so far and been able to find the problem entries that cause the issues through trial & error, yet since there is no program I know of that checks if reg entries still work. I can't be certain that this is not some unrelated reg entry causing this issue. When I have imported my reg entries manually I get no error messages for a bad entry. I have gotten this type of error in the past and was able to find the problem key that way. I can post my entries if someone thinks that might help to uncover this mystery problem. I basically have the standard entries (all from msfn) and a few I have created for my own GUI display options. DIAL UP PROBLEM: This is slightly different problem on dial up as it is on wireless. On dial up what happens is the send and receive packets freeze's and you get no activity. Then all of a sudden you get a large burst of say 1,000 packets and then another burst of 1,000-2,000 but no web pages can be displayed in the time. Then after about 20 or more mins the connection responds and it starts to both send and receive packets. After that long delay it seems to act normal until you have to dial up again and then it's back to the 20+ min wait as before. WIRELESS 802.11b/g Problem (does not occur on a lan connections at all cable or dsl): On wireless the sent packets is going up but no receive packets come in for roughly the same amount of time as the dial up wait. So I sit for about 10-20mins seeing packets going out with connection connected with 2-4 bars of signal and no responses coming back. Just like in the dial up all of a sudden it starts to work as it should and the connection responds pages download (there are no bursts like on dial up). This issue does not always reappear when the connection is lost either it seems to be a one time thing after a restart or first start up. If the wireless connection is left alone downloading a file it will continue to respond once a new request is started. However if you leave the connection ideal for to long both dial and wireless will start this whole 20+ min waiting thing over again. That is the problem in a nut shell and this one is a total annoyance if anything. I recently got Ryans newest update pack 2.1.4 hoping and praying this would go away as mysteriously as it appeared. Unfortunately the problem is still there with this version as well. Also IE6 & IE7 both suffer from this problem so its not browser related that much I know for sure. So the only possibilities I can think of are: Registry key Something removed with nlite Something in an MS updates Something special to ryans update after 2.1.1 or 2.1.4 time period. Or something else that I have not thought of. I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE has a simular issue or has an idea whats going on & how to fix. PLEASE POST anything.
  17. Anyone else ever seen this issue. I am very interested to hear from people that use wireless and have also used nlite. ANYBODY?
  18. Well different people go to different topic areas. Its a fact that some people will always go to there favorite forum and that there are regulars in various areas. I really really need an answer and need any feedback i can get as this is a huge stumper for me.
  19. Basically the title and sub title says it all. I am absolutely desperate to find an answer to this mysterious problem. SO ANY IDEAS you guys have would be great. I'll TAKE ANY Suggestion, no matter how off the wall it is. I would have posted this in the nlite forum but it's more of an xp core issue then anything. A few ms updates back this happened around Ryans 2.1.1 I think it started & I'm completely lost as to why.

  20. or do you mean make one file from 2 or 3 configs? But then the question is what of the differences?
  21. HELLLLOOOO Hellooooo hellllooooo .... .... .... IS Anyone THERE there there there....
  22. Hello gdogg.. I'm new to your project and started looking into your work here. I read a lot of this forum but 58 pages is way to much to get through. Anyway I have started the nlite part of the install but added back in a few things I use for my laptop. Anyway I have a few questions I hope you can answer or maybe someone who knows your work can answer. 1. Where are these steps after nlite that I keep hearing about? Where are those referenced. I went to your page and got the 2.5beta & cant find anymore then the nlite guide part of your install. 2. Why do you use Nlite 1.0rc7 and not at least 1.01 the most stable version of nlite? 3. I was reading that media player classic did not work, does it still not work? 4. Can you explain a little better how your system ends up being virus free. Do you do things like change the name of common exacutables & files in windows and redo reg entries for those files? OR is it way more then that. From my reading here I have drawn the conclution thats what your possibly doing. 5. The one things I'm the most interested in is performance comming back by using a variation of your install. I really wanna keep a lot of my apps like office 2k3 and mpc and I know a small install has to be faster but I dont mind having one bigger then 57mb. Heck anything around 300-500mb would be fine. What i'd like to get is an outline of what you did that made the biggest boosts in performance? Maybe the top list of performance gainers? I know thats a lot to ask for but if you got a forum or post you can point me towards thats great. 6. What is the status on this project? whats the time frame of 3.0 beta? Hope you or someone else can answer my qestions. Thanks
  23. I know for a fact you can shrink the win xp shell32.dll to below 3mb. I have DONE it. All I did is clear 80% of the icons that are old out and it was less then 3mb. You could import the old win2k icons into the xp shell and that would make it i bet less the 500k bigger then 2k ver of the file. Having versions from other OS's is just asking for instability to come knocking. Is 500k worth all that? Heck is a 1 mb worth all that?
