  1. If you want a clean install, the latest installer has a switch for silent installs.

    mirc62.exe /S

    Otherwise just sfx the whole folder and create shortcuts

    Then import these two registry values with regedit /S mirc.reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



    All other reg entries, including uninstall, will be made first time mirc is run.

  2. i suggest these tweaks are added

    ;Changes Time Interval Between System Restore Points to Once a Week (Default is Once a Day)

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore]


    To me it seems more useful to lower the length of time that restore points are kept.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore]

    This will purge restore points older than 7 days, instead of the 90 days that is default.

    If I haven't needed to restore in 7 days I doubt i ever will, or that doing so would be useful :)

  3. 1 more i just thought of:

    in xp, after installing windows, i had to tell it that "my documents"folder (with my music, my videos, my pictures, and many more things inside it) was in another place. i did it by rightclicking on my documents on the start menu, properties, and MOVE.

    on vista, i could do that separately, for my music and my pictures, but the same properties option was not present on my docs (or some other folder i might have misnamed here).

    is there a way of telling vista that my documents folder is in another placE ?

    Right click on Documents > Properties > Location > Move >...

    read my question again or ask for a better explanation of my problem if you dont understand, thx.

    Maybe you should read your question again... ;)

  4. You need to create the reg key outlined below, it is not present by default.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    In the above

    Place0 = Desktop

    Place1 = %systemdrive%\

    Place2 & Place3 = obvious :)

    Place4 = My Computer

    Here's a few default values you can use in place of absolute paths

    Desktop: 00000000

    My Documents: 00000005

    My Computer: 00000011
