  1. I don't like themes, can I get a copy of the version without themes for testing?
  2. Any chance you can make it find the keys for remote systems? eg:My system boots a few different OS versions and each have different installed MS software. It would be nice to get 'all' keys from 'all' OS's and MS software from each drive at once. Works on XP Pro SP2 for: Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 Microsoft Windows XP Visual Studio .NET Professional 2003 - English
  3. Hope so. I will keep reading this thread and if I can help with anything else I will.
  4. @gdogg Just found this thread today, sounds great!! I have a link to some detailed info on how to get XP slimmed down. Also in the link is some info on Perfect Disk and a couple of tips on files it needs. This guy spent a lot of time checking out files etc. Click the link, then goto "Slimming Down Windows XP: The Complete Guide" and do a text search for "perfect". You will find the info. I'm not saying this is the greatest link ever, but it does have many details. Maybe you already have this link, maybe not. I just want to help and be a part of the project too Hope I can help.

  5. Well actually, there's really no such thing as a virus. It's all hype. Code is code, that's it. Some code does things YOU want it to do and other code does what someone else wants it to do without your permission or knowledge. Depends on your level of knowledge. I would suspect that anyone who writes a lot of code (while an anti vi app is running) has found that thier own code is considered a virus, even though writing a virus was the furthest thing from thier mind. Been there. We've been duped into believing in viruses to prepare us (scare us into submission) for planned future controls. The average user hasn't got a clue. Knowledge turns "viruses" back into dormant code.
  6. From the horses mouth... HOW TO: Use Xcacls.exe to Modify NTFS Permissions
  7. If your bios supports booting a usb device, usually all you need to do is use the old floppy as the bootsector when creating a bootable cd. Most good burning apps have a feature to create bootable CD's If you want to learn more and get adventurous Bart's site is the place to go. Barts Bootable CD's
  8. (Note: Post has been editted (updated) Post your current script to see what there is to work with. There are many ways to accomplish the same thing. I would start by naming the backup files by date, or day (1.bkf - 31.bkf etc). Then rename the 3 you want to keep while you delete the rest. One way to do it... A small example: set name=%date:~7,2% ntbackup backup systemstate /j "Command Line Backup 4" /f "c:\backups\%name%.bkf" if %name% == 20 goto _delold exit :_delold if exist c:\backups\17.bkf ren c:\backups\17.bkf bkf.17 if exist c:\backups\18.bkf ren c:\backups\18.bkf bkf.18 if exist c:\backups\19.bkf ren c:\backups\19.bkf bkf.19 if exist c:\backups\20.bkf ren c:\backups\20.bkf bkf.20 del c:\backups\*.bkf if exist c:\backups\bkf.17 ren c:\backups\bkf.17 old17.bkf if exist c:\backups\bkf.18 ren c:\backups\bkf.18 old18.bkf if exist c:\backups\bkf.19 ren c:\backups\bkf.19 old19.bkf if exist c:\backups\bkf.20 ren c:\backups\bkf.20 old20.bkf exit By renaming them with the "old" prefix, they will be deleted next month along with all other bkf files, and there will be no overwrite problem with the next months files named 17, 18, 19 .bkf
  9. If you are auto starting a cd the batch file needs no drive letter. As long as your batch file is in the root of the cd, or it's in the root of a folder containing the folder with the apps (standalone exe, and/or subfolders) Use a path relative to the batch file's location. eg: (With the batch file in the root of the cd, and the folder"Support_Apps" in the root of the cd) xcopy Support_Apps C:\Support_Apps /e /s /w (note: switches belong at the end of the command) eg: xcopy Support_Apps C:\Support_Apps /i /s /h /y /q I like to keep it quiet, get all files/folders, and not show errors or file copying to the user,.... me.
  10. Check your other thread. I posted a reply that may help. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=37572&st=0&
  11. This works too. (Win2K/XP) set hour=%time:~0,2% if "%hour:~0,1%"==" " set hour=0%time:~1,1% set folder=%date:~10,4%_%date:~4,2%_%date:~7,2% set subfolder=%hour%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2% md c:\logs\%username%\%folder%\%subfolder% If you want the date and time as the foldername you could use this: set hour=%time:~0,2% if "%hour:~0,1%"==" " set hour=0%time:~1,1% set folder=%date:~10,4%_%date:~4,2%_%date:~7,2%_%hour%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2% md c:\logs\%username%\%folder% Both are incomplete since I can't tell exactly what you are trying to do, but you should be able to figure out any additions you need. I just happened to be driving by and saw you were looking for something I was trying to do a week ago, and with the help of a friend we put this together. Hope it helps. cheers
