Registry Tweaks

Recommended Posts

I've searched a bit but haven't seen this one posted yet. Nothing earth shattering, but could be useful to somebody.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\tabletoobe]"ShowTabletSplash"=dword:00000000      ; TabletPC - Disable Tutorial Splash Screen

Why'd you want to "empty" your TIF cache....

Unattended install after a re-format.... certainly no files can be existing there....

If you do want to anyway set the size of the cache automatically through registry, you can find it here:

comprehensive pre-configuration of Internet Explorer 6 options in XP's unAttended setup

(its described there for setting cache to 2 MB - you need to set the size in KB in hex)

;-----  Stores more DNS entries so that your computer

;"NegativeCacheTime"=dword:00000000  <-----------


i read somewhere that those registry names are for win2000 for xp should be ...

  ;-----  DNS in Windows XP

  ;To stop Windows XP from caching negative responses

"MaxNegativeCacheTtl "=dword:00000000

illusions is right about the caching of negative DNS entries. This is the tweak I've been using as well.

;Disable caching negative entries, cache positive entries for 4hrs

Both are described in M$ Knowledge Base Article here.

Hello everybody :whistle: ,

Is there a tweak to empty your "Temporary Internet Files" and set the settings to 1% for example?

These are the values u want, tho i set to 30mb limit. There really isn't a need to clear TIF cos it helps in faster surfing. Limiting the cache is good enough. So its better to leave out "Persistent".

;Sets TIF limit to 30mb, Clear TIF on shutdown
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\Cache\Content]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Cache\Content]

These are my Notes on that, don't set to 0 DELETE

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;If you find DWORD values MaxCacheEntryTtlLimit and/or NegativeCacheTime in the
;registry location, delete those. When present they will prevent Windows XP using the correct settings.
;After doing this flush the DNS cache for the changes to take effect
; @command prompt    ipconfig /flushdns
;  wshshell.Run "cmd /c ipconfig /flushdns"





EDIT:2 Added the reg

Why do people just keep on about the attached registry tweaks....

Give em all in one place and peep's will install all and then complain. That's why I prefer to use an app to do it so i can test and undo.

Having fun yet? :w00t:

I'm trying to figure out what you mean

Both of those are wrong man or


I think Microsoft has the correct way since, uhhh they wrote it. What you see on that MS link is the application of Regini.exe, it does not mean AlwaysUnloadDLL is on separate line as a Reg Value, it's a Key with a @ value.

whever which is right one , it does not matter any more

This registry key is no longer supported in Microsoft Windows 2000 or later

so ~ see it in http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;196480

I should probably add this here.  I had a problem with my ati mobility card, and this lil bugger was the culprit.  I'm taking it out of my unattended, and you may want to also if you have an ati card.

The following registry key will screw up SP2 with ati mobility and possibly other cards.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]

Sure with any ATI graphic card and XP1-some-hotfix or XP2

if u set "LargeSystemCache"=dword:00000001 then u might never see any of desktop of your account

I encountered a problem with one of HoverHeads tweaks...

;-----  Active Window Tracking  for XP

;-----  Value: (0=disable, 1=enable)

;-----  This tweak allows you to bring running programs to the foreground just by

;-----  moving you mouse of the application window. This is similar to the X-Mouse

;-----  feature found on UNIX operating systems.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

"UserPreferencesMask"=hex:ff, 3e, 00 00



Doesn't seem to work on my Logitech MX700 mouse (with the 9.80 Logitech drivers).

set "UserPreferencesMask"=hex:ff, 3e, 00 00 to "UserPreferencesMask"=hex:fe, 3e, 00 00
