  1. From WinsuperSite's Windows XP Tips It seems that a lot of people are interested in removing Windows Messenger for some reason, though I strongly recommend against this: In Windows XP, Windows Messenger will be the hub of your connection to the .NET world, and now that this feature is part of Windows, I think we're going to see a lot of .NET Passport-enabled Web sites appearing as well. But if you can't stand the little app, there are a couple of ways to get rid of it, and ensure that it doesn't pop up every time you boot into XP. The best way simply utilizes the previous tip: If you'd like Windows Messenger to show up in the list of programs you can add and remove from Windows, navigate to C:WINDOWSinf (substituting the correct drive letter for your version of Windows) and open sysoc.inf (see the previous tip for more information about this file). You'll see a line that reads: msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7 Change this to the following and Windows Messenger will appear in Add or Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components, then , and you can remove it for good: msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,7

  3. I also tried this out today, wasn't too pleased with the spyware results it bought up. i.e. Flashget as spyware when it clearly wasn't when registered, it just bluntly labelled every single file in the Flashget directory as spyware.

    Adobe Reader SpeedUp

    All it does is move the less-used plugins to a folder called plugins_BAK and leave the necessary ones in the plugins folder. I just use a batch file to do all this instead of installing Adobe Reader Speed Up.

    Alcohol 120% v1.9.2.1705

    I'd avoid installing by MSI. The Windows Explorer integration for mounting images doesn't get installed. (unless that's changed in newer alcohol versions?)

    Nero Burning ROM

    What is the point of signing up to another username, and choosing a different country flag? We're not stupid, you're using the same IP Address as jacmatsu.

    RunOnceEX doesn't work

    12. Very often we see meaningless subjects in topic title. They give no clue of what the posts are all about. For example: - Oh no! - Help - I'm mad - Please help - Question - I need your help - Hmmmm .... This should be avoided. Users should enter something more specific in topic title so that it is easier for others to help. A few good examples: - Strange problem with DirectX9b redist - RunOnceEx install problem (double installation) - Change Internet Explorer's Icon back to default http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=18408 No capitals in topic title either!

    Instead of lots of threads on gmail invites, we're sticking to using one only: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=25957 please use that for invites. And um... no caps in topic title either Thread Closed
  15. CDImage works fine for making DVD images, even used the one I provided on the site to make my own DVD ISO (without any modification to the switches whatsoever). Then burned it to disc with Nero. Astalavista, making a bootable ISO in Nero isn't easy, you have to set settings and have a boot.img file handy. CDImage automates all this with the batch file provided.

    Issues with uA_SP2

    taskkill.exe is included in Windows XP. hh.exe is the application used to view .chm files, such as AdAware's Help file. Killing hh.exe will end process on the help file. I would also suggest a 5 second gap before ending process on adaware.exe and hh.exe (use sleep.exe for this, on the downloads page) as taskkill executed too early in my case. TweakUI's setup file is not the same as other powertoy's installer packages, so /s /v/qn won't work. See: http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/applications/powertoys.htm
  17. If it says it can't find the file, did you check to see if it actually exists or not in C:\Install\WMP10\ ? Please use CODE tags when pasting seperate pieces of code, its hard enough trying to comprehend all of that. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=21582

    I replaced the original Calculator with Calculator Plus, the currency and metric conversion makes it so much better.
  20. The way I do it (but takes up excess space on the CD, unless SFX archived) is to get the zip versions of Firefox and Thunderbird: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir...win32-0.9.3.zip http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thu...0.7.3-win32.zip and extract them each to \$OEM$\$Progs\Mozilla Firefox and \$OEM$\$Progs\Mozilla Thunderbird and that's pretty much it, no switches. Finish it off by removing the read-only attributes in one of your batch files: attrib -R "%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\*.*" /S /D attrib -R "%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Thunderbird\*.*" /S /D

    Really Big Problem

    You should follow this guide so you can autologon with your own account, and then apply the registry entries from there: http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/autologon.htm
