U prob already know this but neway when writting a web address in ur browser address bar type it in without the 'www.' and the '.com' then hit Ctrl+Enter this will save on typing the whole web site addy out. + also reduce the risk of RSI
think its just a MS Ie thing...

The ctrl + enter feature has been around for smome time now. However, on the translated versions of IE and Win XP the .com has been changed to the countrys own domain (.dk in Denmark and .sv in Sweden, and yes, there is no .sv domain. This is just an example of bad coding)). This can be changed to any domain of your liking without too much trouble. Just follow the steps below if you wanna change things on your pc. All you need is a program for compiling code like visual studio (or whatever program you use). If you dont have program to compile with you can download the free program resource hacker.
This is for the Swedish version of Win XP but I cant imagine there is too much difference from whatever language XP you're using.
1. Start by changing the name of the browselc.dll file that can be found in \windows\system32\dllcache to browselc.dll.back. This is to get around the windows file protection program in Win XP.
2. Make a copy of the file browselc.dll in the windows\system32 and keep it somewhere as a backup if something should go wrong.
3. Start resource hacker (or Visual studio or....) and open the file browse.dll (the one in windows\system32)
4. Expand the "string table" in the tree and find the folder named 809
5. Click 1053 and you should see some code
6. Find codestring number 12936. This says "http://www.%s.sv" (or "http://www.%s.nl" in the netherlands, anyway you get the picture)
7. Change the ending to the domain that you fancy. For example "http://www.%s.sv" to "http://www.%s.com"
8. Compile the script
9. Save the file. This is where the file protection program kicks in but we have already taken care of that. Note - If you have your Windows disk in the cd-rom the file will be copied from there instead
10. You will now get an error message but have no fear. Just press cancel and on the next question press yes and we are done.
Remember, this file is no longer protected by the file protection program (as if you care...)
That's it from me now. Happy surfing and have a nice day.
