Quick question about folder setting ...

;-----

;----- Display detail on windows explorer

;-----

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams]

"Settings"=hex:08,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,77,7e,13,73,35,cf,11,ae,\

69,08,00,2b,2e,12,62,04,00,00,00,10,00,00,00,43,00,00,00

How do i add attribute column to windows explorer as default?

What would be the regedit tweak to add to set control panel folder "only" to

display as icon ?

Also it it necessary to include these entries to remove all previous folder settings ?

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

i'm not sure if this is a regtweak or not.

i need to stop xp2's security warnings. for example, when trying to silently install ad-aware, i get a message about whether to run it or not, because the source was not verified.

how do i stop these warnings, so i dont get the messages (i want it the way it was before sp2, but i need my firewall to stay on)

I really like this one...

;Add register / unregister to the context menu for .dll files

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.dll]"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"

@="dllfile"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile]

@="Application Extension"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\Shell\Register\command]

@="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\Shell\UnRegister\command]

@="regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""

;Add register / unregister to the context menu for .ocx files

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ocx]

@="ocxfile"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile]

@="OCX"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\Shell\Register\command]

@="regsvr32.exe \"%1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ocxfile\Shell\UnRegister\command]

@="regsvr32.exe /u \"%1\""

Did you check my Service Pack 2 Registry Tweaks Mini-Guide on the previous page? Perhaps you should.. :) Last 4 tweaks are what you looking for.

Here's another that is quite useful to me, since I want firewall and security center disabled (disabling the service also disables the firewall). Of course we all know how to disable security center, but it hasn't been mentioned how to disable firewall, except through the use of winnt.sif.

;Disable Security Center
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Windows Firewall / ICS
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess]
"Start"=dword:00000004

Is it possible to divide up these registry tweaks into 2 catagories. One catagory for those settings that should be applied before anyone logs in (ie the settings that you want to apply to all users & disabling firewall / security center services). The other catagory for the tweaks that have to be loaded after a user has logged in (such as sort the start menu alphabetically).

I know it'd be a bit of work, but it would make life easier for everyone. :)

After applying those registry tweaks, will it still be possible to change those settings back, in windows, without applying registry tweaks again?

I have disabled "Windows Security Center" service by registry. Than it isn´t possible to enable it within Windows, normally, i.e without editing the registry!

Start -> Run -> services.msc

select the service and choose properties

you can run or set automatic there

one of the registry tweaks seems to be deleting the "luna" theme, and setting it to classic, because in display settings it shows classic but not the regular/new one.

Yep, it's ShellState. Here's mine it's same but with luna.
