B.A. Regedit

Any of you that do websites and like to open .html and similar files in notepad to edit scripts, this is the coolest windows registry edit ever you can download the zip file with the .reg in it (run it and it automatically adds itself to your registry) or do it manually.

CODE
http://www.geocities.com/ichbindeingott5/winxp-notepad.zip

Manually: regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell add the key "notepad" it's default value should be "open with notepad" now, under "notepad", add the key "command" it's default value should be (with the quotes) "c:\windows\system32\Notepad.exe" "%1"

ok, exit regedit and go right click on ANY file...
you new option: Open with notepad.

I know this one works on XP and 2000, you can PROBABLY enter it manually on windows 9x, but I have not tested that.

I know maybe not everyone cares... but this was fun for me because I love tweaking my computer and it makes some web design stuff easier for me :D

When i downloaded adobe acrobat, all i seem to have is a file that opens with text edit and is alot of numbers. What do i do to download it correctly?


Hi,
The file you have downloaded is OK. The problem is with your PC.
When you double-click an .EXE file, the program may not launch, instead it may open in Notepad (displaying the .exe contents), or may launch in any other application like notepad. It is due to the incorrect .exe file association caused accidentally or probably due to a virus activity and you get the result similar to the following:

SOLUTION
Download EXEFIX-XP
EXE-FIX (VISTA) OR EXEFIX-VISTA
EXEFIX utility and save to Desktop. Double-click the file to run it. This utility fixes the .exe file association in the registry automatically.

You may also use REGISTRY PATCH (for Windows XP)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

did not pass genuine windows validation


This problem has 2 solutions.
the first is called the hook (in my terms). if you possess a genuine windows XP key then activate it online
else i.e. (crook)
there is a registry key for the genuine validation. it will make your windows genuine.

1. Open a 'New Text Document' (Notepad) and type in the following:
(better copy and paste as it is)


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]
"CurrentBuild"="1.511.1 () (Obsolete data - do not use)"
"ProductId"="55274-640-1011873-23081"
"DigitalProductId"=hex:a4,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,35,35,32,37,34,2d,36,34,30,2d,\
31,30,31,31,38,37,33,2d,32,33,30,38,31,00,2e,00,00,00,41,32,32,2d,30,30,30,\
30,31,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,86,56,4e,4c,21,1b,2b,6a,a3,78,8e,8f,98,5c,00,00,\

00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,38,31,30,32,36,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,b5,16,\
00,00,83,83,1f,38,f8,01,00,00,f5,1c,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,66,e5,70,f3
"LicenseInfo"=hex:33,b7,21,c1,e5,e7,cd,4b,fd,7c,c6,35,51,fd,52,57,17,86,3e,18,\

4a,d9,db,64,5c,c4,e2,0f,34,f3,ea

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents]
"OOBETimer"=hex:ff,d5,71,d6,8b,6a,8d,6f,d5,33,93,fd


2. Save the file with File Name XP GENUINE.REG
In place of XP GENUINE you can give any name of your choice but the important things to take care of when
saving this notepad file are
save the file name with .REG extension coz its related to registry

3. After saving, open it with Registry editor and your registry will be edited accordingly making your windows XP genuine forever. (if it prompts for a confirmation to edit the registry choose YES)

Restart Your PC and enjoy the genuine version.

1) to edit registry go to start / select run and type regedit. from there you are able to edit registry values.
