Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Use Two hard drives keep Windows Running Fast on C:\ moving your ProgramFiles to D:\

I like to keep my main drive running mean and lean with mainly just the OS running on my C: drive

On my second drive I usually call this D: I like to install the majority of all my programs however, windows always wants to install programs to “c:Program Files” to avoid changing this everytime copy and paste the bold into a reg file and double click it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion]

"ProgramFilesDir"="D:Program Files"
"CommonFilesDir"="D:Program FilesCommon Files"
"ProgramFilesPath"=hex(2):25,00,50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,6d,00,46,
00,69,00,6c,00,65,00,73,00,25,00,00,00

Remember you have to reboot for your changes to show also the Common Files will need to be changed the hex code is the %ProgramFiles% declaration.

NOTE: I change my CD/DVD-ROM to either V: W: or R: using the Computer Management Disk Manager to keep it out of the way

mower cranks with throttle in choke. after cranked and throttle moved to fast or any other position. The mower dies as if someone turns it off??


Ok I assume what you are trying to say is that once it starts with the choke on and you turn the choke off it dies.
This behavior usually means that the engine is leaning out. This means that it is not getting enough gas. Often if you put it back to choke fast enough it will keep running though very roughly.
The problem is the main metering jets are plugged or there is some kind of obstruction in the carburetor. This is assuming of course that the tank is full of gas and the fuel filter is clean.

what is the main problem with mower not wanting to move forward or reverse?


if the engine is running, but the mower is not moving generally you have a problem such as:

1) the main drive belt between the engine and transmission has failed

2) the main drive belt is good, but the hydrostatic transmission has failed.

first issue can be resolved by about anyone with a good selection of tools, a twelve pack, and a couple warm sunny hours. second issue means you are going to get a new mower unless you have an expensive mower and it is worth spending 1500 dollars to get a new transmission for it.

AFTER COMPRESSING MAIN DRIVE, TFGHT IS COMPRESSED CAN UP PLEASE HELP


Compressing the main drive using a Windows Programme, shouldn't give any problems.
I don't understand what you mean by TFGHT. What is that?
Using the compression utility, can de-compress as required, try running it again and decompress it noting what error messages are displayed, if any. Then try again, when it has recovered, or fit a larger Hard Drive maybe?
