Registry Tweaks, Part-1


Recommended Posts

Since some people are already slipstreaming SP2 here's a couple new registry settings.

These keys control the new xp popup blocker

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\PlaySound

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\BlockUserInit

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\PopupMgr

Each value is a reg_sz. The value is either a yes or a no.

The manager plugins registry keys are stored at


I don't think this key actually has the extensions. Instead it references the class id of the plugin.

While using regmon to find the registry keys, these registry keys were also listed. I don't know if they're related or regmon just happened to catch them. Either way here's more registry keys, they belong in HKCU\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

I believe you set it up how you want it and then export this key

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\0]


;Set Power Configuration

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg]


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\0]

Don't turn monitor off with Minimal Power Management

I like screensaver to run so I choose Minimal


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\4]




[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Controls Folder\PowerCfg\PowerPolicies\4]




[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power]









[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power]









Notes: This tells monitor to never shut off in Minimal Power management

If you Notice PowerPolicies\4] theres a 4

That means the Minimal Power management

But this is what changed after setting it to not turn monitor off.

Also you need to disable Hibernation in the Power Options features.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power]

also my bios has it does that mean I've an onboard graphics ram?

Sorry for not responding. That just means what amount of RAM will be reseved (if needed, in most cases it won't) to video card overflow. Just so long as you set the AGP Appature (sp? sorry it's late) to 64 or lower the NTFS tweak should work fine. :)

SP2-tweak only!

if you have trouble with activeX (i.e. several pages are not displayed properly anymore), try this reg-hack:


Change both keys there to zero

I also, have been spending hours and hours looking through the site. This is the best source of unattend/xp tweaks I have ever seen. Very impressed. Because I'm so impressed with the wealth of knowledge in here I decided I'd throw up a VERY annoying problem I've been having for years.

I have a gateway computer with gateway keyboard. I am using default xp drivers for the keyboard (even though I have the same problem when using gateway's drivers)

When the . or the 0 on the numlock keypad are depressed xp will load OE or Outlook 2003 (depending on what I have installed at the moment). This happens on XP, and 2000, and 2003. Is anyone aware of an OE reg key that will disable any possible use of keyboard hotkeys to launch the program? Since this has been tested with mulitple OS's I'm confident it's the keyboard but Im hoping it is resolvable through the registry. Any suggestions? (besides buy a new keyboard) :)

is this right space to ask for registry tweaks? or is it contribution only?

*i have question for several tweaks*

1. how to expand the control panel"?

2. how to show control panel in old style mode?

3. how to show quick launch by default?

4. how to disable 'hide inactive icon' ?

it'd be great if anyone has the answer :)

*and anyone know code to restart the machine after all the silent program install in .cmd ? or does it go under [GUIRUNONCE] ?
