  1. For some strsange reason that looks familiar Heres the RemoveSunJavaUpdateCheck.reg The ZoneAlarm is in this key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zone Labs\ZoneAlarm\Registration] export it.
  2. Enable Quick Reboot (Windows NT/2000)NOT!! here on XP From the web 1 : Enables quick restart with Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Del, at the risk of losing data, by forcing all current applications to close. Uses the same API as the Resource Kit shutdown /c utility. You had better avoid enabling that entry. But I am adventuresome and tried it, it didn't work here. All you wanna do is close Explorerr process and restart it, what I provided will do just that. I tried it on several key's need a reboot to take effect and it work's. I'm not saying it will work for all, like the icon's.
  3. Heres what I use to kill the explorer process which is supposed to reinitialize cause it kill's everything. Make sure you have changes saved before applying. If you move an icon on desktop then that's not saved and they will go back where they were. Its funny try moving a few and you'll see. kill.vbs strComputer = "." Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = 'explorer.exe'") For Each objProcess in colProcessList objProcess.Terminate() NextI remember Refresh in a previous version but haven't found anything supporting it in XP
  4. Using killerbee's method 1 thing need's changed [Environment] DestinationPath=C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org1.1.1Thats the normal install folder for 1.1.1 otherwise thats simple enough thnks killerbee
  5. K i see now and thats good to remember. I had trouble with that once before and my solution was in my batch i just used a CD in first line to dir it's already in and it work's without having to change my prog's path since I use a lot of call's to AddBackslash(App.Path) & " I guess you can see that would create a problem if I forgot to add the ChDir back in the prog
  6. Mine is a little different perhaps its the ,extra after jrecore "%systemdrive%\Install\SunJava\j2re-1_5_0-beta-windows-i586.exe /s /v /qn ADDLOCAL=jrecore,extra IEXPLORER=1 MOZILLA=1"That works for me.
  7. Well thank you back cause I just never looked up that number stuff. Got it copied now and will change mine to 128 Path is required I believe because normally the command in the registry has the %1 on the end which return's path to highlighted file. Maybe theres a work around but I haven't looked that hard yet. Using those in runonceex you definetly want the path or variables.
  8. If you are the only user on Windows XP, you could save some time by having Windows XP log you into your user account automatically. There are a few requirements for this to work: The Welcome screen must be available Select Start > Control Panel and click User Accounts Click Change the way users log on or off Check to make sure that Use the Welcome screen is selected Guest account access must be turned off Select Start > Control Panel and click User Accounts Click the Guest account Click Turn off the Guest account There must be only one user account on the computer The user account must not have a password Select Start > Control Panel and click User Accounts Click the user account Click Remove the password Note: This will only work when the computer is NOT on a domain.

  9. Head's Up My two cents on this I've been a faithful MS user since 3.1, I've tried Linux but its too ugly IMHO Crap is changing On my server PC I don't have SP2 installed I've had 1 copy of XP Home update since day 1. I've formatted the HD a hundred times before Unattend, even swapped HD's for bigger ones, reinstalled on at least 6 different PC's as time progressed, but only 1 at a time. The original CD shattered inside a CD drive but I had a backup which i've used for about 2 year's to reinstall. I had a MOBO crash on my server recently that was running this copy, I have 4 different paid for licensed copies BTW, 1 Pro. Bought a cheap replacement PC since all it run's is the NIC's and installed my copy with SP1 slipped and then done all the updates. For the first time ever I get that message about I gotta call. After a phone call to MS they activated it but the lady told me that the original ProductKey for a valid CD was no longer valid meaning I can no longer use that to install. I asked her several ? about this and she simply told me that's the new activation thing. In other word's I asked her if I reformat this PC and install that mean's I can no longer use any kind of ProductKey= She said NO, that I would have to call and activate this each time from now on. How many times do you have before they say NO, I heard is was 8 That sucks and as soon as they get Linux working for my server software then this MS crap is gone on that PC. I may now become a wacker since MS is forceing us into it. How many time's can you use your Unattended before this bite's you? That was my backup method. Problem's, then Unattend I'm wondering if some update along the way changed all this and which one is it? I don't think is was SP2 alone. If I ever figure that out then it will never be installed. I know SP1 changed some things. Any thought's?
  10. I think we talking about diff OS Those aren't in my Run key in XP.
  11. Uggh I have it on the CDs But I have a method I'm working on also. Simply eject and insert next. Can't do without my MSDN either Lotsa luck
  12. Add the path, i just merged your's from a command prompt like this. rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\Install\RunOnceEx.infAlso mine has a 132 in my registry and yours says 128, I am not sure which should be probably Gosh know's since he does the inf's more.
  13. You wanted a script to do it but heres a cmd file. You can remove the pause from it unless you want to see the results. First you NET STOP that Messenger service then set its start value to a 4 to prevent it from running on boot. This is NOT MSN Messenger The PreventRun stops msn messenger from loading at start. save below as Messenger.cmd these are all 5 single lines but it gets wrapped here. NET STOP Messenger REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Messenger /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f REG ADD HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client /v PreventRun /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f pause EXITI can whip this up in vbs or several other's can if you need it that way.
  14. Now that would be an undertaking. 5 CDs
  15. Maybe I don't quite understand If in VB use the Kill Kill App.Path & "\sp1.cmd"In batch file use simply del del c:\test
  16. Strange least here all I do is add the first part and it automatically add's the HKLM key's. Same with the Open w/Wordpad all I do is add the key and it add's the HKLM key's. My original Notepad stuff is same thing as here but read the note about office 97 if you have that. Mean's you got a problem BigDaddy I heard of that before and am looking, i'll put it here if i find.
  17. Perhaps this could be it. Maybe need the HKLM keys then it appears on right click of unknown files. REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open] @="Open w/Notepad" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open\command] @="notepad.exe %1" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\open] @="Open w/Notepad" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\open\command] @="notepad.exe %1" The default when you just double click an unknown file is to open that search web garbage and can be changed to open the dialog lets you select the registered programs. REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system] "NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001
  18. You can add flags but I don't think theres a way to stop it. SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY% /v Flags /t REG_DWORD /d "30" /f0x00000010 Create Error Log File Create C:\Windows\RunOnceEx.err file if errors occur 0x00000020 Create Execution Log File Create a C:\Windows\RunOnceEx.log file with status of commands http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;fr;q232509
  19. Pro gives you extra settings and ability to add custom rules. Its installed the same way with the zapSetup_45_594_000.exe /s /noreboot I've been unable to make it import settings at start, but thats easily done with the xml file you save occasionally, I actually have a clean file with minimum settings so I can start over if I choose, just a few program's and Zones and Pro rules. With the reg file at least the serial number is setup. Heres my runonceex i use on my XP Home machine. REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /VE /D "ZoneAlarm Pro" /f REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\Install\ZoneAlarmPro\ZoneAlarm.reg" /f REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V 2 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\ZoneAlarmPro\zapSetup_45_594_000.exe /s /noreboot" /f REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V 3 /D "pskill zclient" /f
  20. I'll have to try killerbee's method myself. I had already made another solution before I found above. Its a cmd file called from RunonceEx with a vbs doing the Sendkeys. Let me know if anyone want's, I won't waste space posting it. EDIT: killerbee's method works easier
  21. With Pro version its an XML to set your settings up. I haven't finished that yet.
  22. Updated to call the vbs script from the cmd. That works in VMWare and normally by just adding to RunonceEX and logging off. For some reason the vbs script would not execute in VMWare.
  23. This is messy but works You'll have to figure out exact key sequence you need. After merging my reg file It already has my serial number EZvirus.vbs Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") ' Give time to extract and load WScript.Sleep 10000 ' Welcome WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 2000 ' License Agreement WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 2000 ' Product License Key WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 2000 ' Setup Options WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 20000 ' Typical WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 500 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" WScript.Sleep 8000 ' Update Warning WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 1000 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" ' Restart = No WScript.Sleep 5000 WshShell.SendKeys "{TAB}" WScript.Sleep 1000 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" ' Apply Update WScript.Sleep 3000 WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}" Set WshShell = Nothing WScript.QuitMy EZvirus.cmd Reg extracted from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\Anti-Virus cmdow @ /min /HID regedit /s %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\EZvirus.reg start %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\EZvirus.vbs /b start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\EZvirus.exe %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\aup_5443.exe EXITNotice the aup_5443.exe. That updates it to latest at end. In RunonceEX I call EZvirus.cmd [EZAntivirus] REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /VE /D "EZAntivirus" /f" REG ADD %KEY%\iAdd /V 1 /D "cmd /C start /min /wait %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\EZvirus.cmd" /f
  24. I've been using EZ Antivirus for quite some time so I'm a registered user reason I have the serial dialog. Here's the setup.iss I got [installShield Silent] Version=v5.00.000 File=Response File [File Transfer] OverwriteReadOnly=YesToAll [DlgOrder] Dlg0=SdWelcome-0 Count=3 Dlg1=SdLicense-0 Dlg2=SdOptionsButtons-0 [sdWelcome-0] Result=1 [sdLicense-0] Result=1 [sdOptionsButtons-0] Result=111 [Application] Name=Anti-Virus Version=0.5 Company=ComputerAssociates Lang=0009I run it with this start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\setup.exe -s -f1%systemdrive%\Install\EZAntivirus\setup.issBut I still get the 2 dialog's before the Serial one. After I put in the serial it creates a file I am unable to open/copy or anything in the Temp dir. Perhap's I need to merge the reg first see if that work's.
