  1. I have windows 2003 enterprise setup on my workstation and I would like to run a webserver. After installing IIS6 from Add Remove Windows Components, IIS refuses to function. I had it working on this system prior to a reformat, so I know it does work on this machine. After installing IIS the World Wide Web Publishing service does not show up in services.msc, as it did before. When I try to start IIS Admin serviec I get the following error: Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified. My services are heavily tweaked and I think the problem might stem from it, here is the configuration: Auto: -Cryptographic Services -DHCP -Event Log -HHTP SSL -IIS Admin -Network Connections -PnP -Remote Procedure Call -Security Accounts Manager -Windows Audio -Windows Managment Instrumentation -Workstation Manual: -Applicaion Managment -Machine Debug Manager -RPC Locator -Windows Installer -Windows Managment Instrumentation Driver Ex Disabled: -everything else Do you guys have any suggestions? Thanks, Urfage
  2. Included here is a registry file I've compiled from various sources. I use this reg file after every new install and find it to save massive amounts of time when it comes to tweaking a new installation. Some of the tweaks are based on user prefrence, be sure and go through and read what each tweak does and edit the file as you see fit. If you have any suggestions, changes, or questions please feel free to reply to this tread. Here it is: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;XP and 2k3 ;This will allow you to autologin. ;Replace DefaultUserName value with the Username you want to autologin with. ;Replace DefaultPassword value with the password corresponding to the Username specified.

  4. Here is a solution it is untested but should work... Open regedit Navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon Chage "Shell" string value to: cmd.exe /c start /high explorer.exe That should start explorer at high priority. For more info open cmd and type start /? Remember this is untested, I'm not sure it will parse the command line options, but you can try it out. To you other guys that replied: quit being punks. -urfage
