  1. Just right click on one of the column's in Explorer like Name = right on it. Click the More. How many you want cause i see about 20+ you can choose.
  2. Aaron You know for years I turned that off, killed and anything possible I could to stop it. Its turned off by reg tweak right now or I thought it was. HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar LinksFolderName = "" Thats all my favorites and I did Not move them to the Links folder. However to get that I have to turn Links on in the toolbar and in my Favorites the Links folder is empty = thought it was off. Its something else I done and I'm working on it to make it better. I just wanted to know if there was another way to get it before I mess with this. So I assume what you're saying is I could move all my Fav's into the Links folder and it would do that.
  3. Looks normal except Crazy Browser Cursor XP avgamsvr - AVG antivirus related Did you install those?
  4. Use Bootvis to see whats hanging maybe? Mine used to take forever and it said it was USB driver delay in Bootvis. 822603 fixed it for me.
  5. Ooops spoke too soon its 26 seconds now. I've reformatted lately and haven't uninstalled stuff like webcheck and PCHealth this go around. Also my reg is well over 144000 and have a boatload of software installed. Also have to press enter at login screen, I know how to disable but usually run a password there. Removed pass for this test. Logon screen is about 23 secs The brown spot says Boot Done ( in 16.43 secs) From powered off Thats loading ZonealarmPro and my Antivirus and Logitech mouse Or am I interpreting this wrong?
  6. Uhh no, not shelling out money like that. The 100mb was a joke And yes there are things you can do to make it boot like that with a decent sys. Mine is just a Athalon 1800 512DDR. I work on so much stuff not sure exact combination but heres a few I use Disable autoexec processing Old style login with no pass - thats major Disable Auto Boot Disk Optimization - I turn on occassionally then off Disable chkdisk Turn off run desktop clean-up wizard Disable Last Access Disable 8+3 Remove Shared Doc's Kill Remote Namespace Tasks Kill Remote Namespace Printers Disable XPs zip and cab crap System Restore I run on 7 days but - delay it taking snapshot till 2 min mark on the daily. And more Several other things I've done mostly shown in Windows Tips 'n' Tweaks forum - be suprised unloading the garbage what it will do for you
  7. 20 secs is fast enough and this not an Uber PC Why shoot for the right price I'll sell my priceless 100mb
  8. Talking about the Bar with folder's at bottom.
  9. Ooops yeah I posted like to add to a reg file and people usually comment those. I fixed
  10. Instead of usual tweak that gives you Open with Notepad on right click on unknown file I've modified mine to use Wordpad. Wordpad is located here - by default. %programfiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe %1 Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Open With Wordpad on right click unknown [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open] @="Open w/Wordpad" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open\command] @=hex(2):25,00,70,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,6d,00,66,00,69,00,6c,00,65,\ 00,73,00,25,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,77,00,73,00,20,00,4e,00,\ 54,00,5c,00,41,00,63,00,63,00,65,00,73,00,73,00,6f,00,72,00,69,00,65,00,73,\ 00,5c,00,77,00,6f,00,72,00,64,00,70,00,61,00,64,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,\ 20,00,25,00,31,00,00,00 Here's the usual Notepad one. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open] @="Open w/Notepad" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\open\command] @="notepad.exe %1"
  11. Not Auto but if you right click an unknown give's you option of Open with Wordpad http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST&f=10&t=17735
  12. Food for thought - But irregardless of numbering when its added to the reg it will be in numerical order no matter what. So that tells us if we want to install something before something else then set the numbers that way.
  13. lol that only kicks in on me at work for some reason.DarkBringer has a good idea but i completely removed the cmdow line and put at end pause EXIT and thats where I figured out what was going on with mine.
  14. Disoriented One Then it was that DEL "%systemdrive%\Install\" RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\Install\ Aaron What I posted works for me cause I'm thinking when you run the batch it's loaded into memory or in process. My Install get's deleted but is it because of processor, memory or what? Maybe fast processor is running next line . I don't know. With the shutdown.exe -r -f -t 60 you have 60 seconds to carry out everything so that's plenty of time so moving it above certainly wouldn't hurt. Good ? or no. I may move mine above but i'm gonna test this a little, maybe write a bogus script that takes time then delete it and see what give's.
  15. Just noticed also that yours has this DEL "%systemdrive%\Install\" RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\Install\ Remove the DEL "%systemdrive%\Install\" cause you getting that with next line with the RD which removes entire dir and thats probably where its hanging.
  16. That narrows it down. Ok then if it hangs something else is wrong above that.Heres mine And it work's, like I said I had problem's with it hanging cause my user wasn't getting Admin and I corrected that.
  17. If you do have Admin rights which was one of my problem's but no longer. Move this line down to right above EXIT. shutdown.exe -r -f -t 60 -c "Windows XP will now restart in 1 minute..." EXIT I also use this format since its correct syntax. rd [Drive:]Path [/q] Work's for me. RD %systemdrive%\drivers\ /S /Q
  18. Yes I was wrong, thought that was it. But I would imagine those are some kind of sorting in the same manner. Didn't look close enough.
  19. In autologon.reg Spaces in there, eliminate them "DefaultUserName"="mrpop" "DefaultPassword"="abcdef"
  20. Dim obj, strA Set obj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set strA = obj.CreateTextFile("datetime.txt", True) strA.write(now()) strA.Close Set obj = Nothing Save that as Datetime.vbs and just run it. It will create the file in same Dir You can change this to whatever you want "datetime.txt" like "C:\App\datetime.txt"
  21. Uhh could'nt you just add a reg tweak to do this instead of all that? This is your C:\pagefile.sys 256 256 REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] "PagingFiles"=hex(7):43,3a,5c,70,61,67,65,66,69,6c,65,2e,73,79,73,20,32,35,36,20,32,35,36,00,00,
  22. Have to check it out myself. 6.8mb though See what it's got that mine don't.
  23. Just for knowledge Recently bought a 120mb Seagate for the price of 79.00 after rebates. Included is a utility they tell you to install first then shutdown hook up new as a slave , boot, start program. I created 2 partitons, one for unattend stuff. It allowed me to completely copy my existing C: to the new drive. Then tell's you to shutdown and swap cables over to new master. Thing booted without a hitch and I mean none. That tiny 8mb partition didn't even exist that is created when you normally create partitions with XP setup. Seagate's DiscWizard for Windows Thought that was painless as it comes and didn't think it would work but it did.
