    Exclamation Expand your Recovery Console Rights

    Expand your XP Recovery Console Rights:

    [Short tip]
    Recovery console, installed as described above, is a fine thing to have in emergencies.
    While using it, though, you'll find you are given very limited folder and file copying rights by default.

    So before we use it, let's expand those rights with a simple adjustment:

    Once Recovery Console is installed, boot into normal Windows with an account having Administrative rights.
    Navigate from "Start", "Programs", "Administrative Tools", Local Security Policy", "Security Options", double-click "Recovery Console: Allow floppy copy and access to all drives and all folders." Select Enabled, then click OK.

    To make this policy immediately effective, either reboot, or at a command prompt type: secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy

    Load Internet Explorer the Fastest Way Possible
    Edit your link to start Internet Explorer to have -nohome after it. For Example:
    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome
    This will load internet explorer very fast because it does not load a web page while it is loading. If you want to go to your homepage after it is loaded, just click on the home button.
    Hey thx for the tips
    One question tho.
    can someone be more specific about the one i quoted.
    I might be having a brain fart but i'm not sure how to do it properly.

    TY

    Right Click on the E icon (the Icon you click to open Internet exploder)
    select Properties from the Drop down menu.
    in the Box that has TARGET beside it you will see
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
    Replace it with
    Code:
    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome
    note the nohome is outside the quotes..

    Click Apply
    Click Ok
    Click your IE icon to see If I am correct or not..
    Cheers..

    Other things you can do to speed up your system would be: Right click on My Computer and click Properties- then choose the Advance tab - Next click the performance setting button, under the Visual effects, uncheck all except the last 4. this will remove some minor graphical details that you normally dont see in Windows XP. once you have done that click ok to exit. this will increase your speed while playing around in windows. Someone else here posted some script that also seamed very good. This tool will clean up Windows XP very good. Sorry I dont remember who made this so I cant give credit to that person. But here it is:

    @echo off
    rem Temp File cleanup script

    if (%os%) == (Windows_NT) goto NTXP
    goto 9x

    :NTXP
    setlocal
    echo.
    echo Deleting Temp Files
    echo.
    del /f /s /q "%homedrive%\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%systemroot%\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%systemroot%\prefetch\*.*"
    del /f /s /q " %systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\cookies
    \*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\local settings\temporary internet

    files\*.*"

    cd %userprofile%\..
    del /f /s /q "default user\cookies\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "default user\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "default user\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "default user\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "administrator\cookies\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "administrator\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "administrator\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "administrator\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "localservice\cookies\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "localservice\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "localservice\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "localservice\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "networkservice\cookies\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "networkservice\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "networkservice\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "networkservice\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%userprofile%\cookies\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%userprofile%\local settings\temp\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%userprofile%\local settings\history\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%userprofile%\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*"

    echo.
    echo Finished deleting
    echo.
    endlocal
    goto end

    :9x
    del /f /s /q "%windir%\temporary internet files\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "%windir%\cookies\*.*"

    :end

    Copy this text and paste it in notepad and save it as a batch file.

    How to enable Hibernation!

    Under Windows 98, Me, or 2000 there was an option in the shutdown dialog box to enter the computer into hibernation (where all the content of the RAM is copied to the hard disk). The shutdown dialog box of Windows XP doesn't offer any longer the hibernation button {only in some cases}. Some users may get confused about how to enable the hibernation mode. If this mode is supported by your motherboard (ACPI) you have to do the following:

    1: Click Start and Shut Down,

    2: Point the standby button and maintain the shift key pushed,

    3: A new hibernation button appears: click it while still holding the shift key: voila your PC will hibernate.

    Well personally I have found nothing wrong with just pushing the power button, with regards to the first one "shutting down xp faster..
    Practise what you preach.

    I think Hibernation only works in XP Pro.

    Can someone with XP Home prove me false
