Hi karthee,

Every version of Windows since Windows 95 has used a Registry, which is essentially a database containing the configuration information for the OS, its peripherals, and any installed software. The Registry is among the first things that Windows loads at startup, and it tells the OS everything from how menus and the Desktop should look and feel, to where all the vital files and programs reside, to which hardware is installed on the system.

The Registry actually includes a series of data files stored in different folders in your Windows subdirectory, all according to which OS version you’re using. For instance, in WinXP Home or Professional, the Registry has six files located in the Config folder at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG. Win98 SE and WinMe have different files in other locations, but in all cases, it’s easier to access the Registry via the Registry Editor.

The Registry Editor, the Regedit.exe program, resides in the Windows subdirectory. But the quickest way to open the Registry Editor is to click Run from the Start menu, type regedit in the field, and press ENTER.

Now that we told you how to open the Registry Editor, we should also warn you that it’s unlike other Windows programs because it saves any changes you make on the fly rather than waiting for you to decide to save your changes. Yes, the Registry Editor will save any changes you make as you make them and apply those changes to the respective files and settings on your system. You cannot negate your edits or deletes simply by bailing out of the program without officially saving anything. This means that any user venturing into the Registry Editor must take special care to track any changes made and protect him or herself by backing up the Registry before tinkering with it.

Hope it's help's you.

Enjoy!

Hope to hear more from you soon

tnx
-micro

Internet Explorer 9 Crashes Fix

youtube-ie9.jpg

Internet Explorer 9 crashes are caused by a number of problems that can occur inside Windows. Because this program is used by the Windows system itself, it's highly recommended that you're able to repair any of the potential problems that it may have, as well as ensuring that your computer is able to run as smoothly as possible with all the important options that it requires to operate. This tutorial is going to show you how to fix the errors that IE9 will often have.

What Causes Internet Explorer 9 Crashes?

  • Your PC will have problems with its files & settings
  • Windows will be outdated
  • The "registry" of your PC will be corrupted or damaged
How To Fix Internet Explorer 9 Crashes Step 1 - Update Windows The most important step to take is to update Windows. This will allow your computer to run much smoother, as it will be able to process the files and settings which it requires to operate the files it needs to run. To do this, you should follow these steps:
  • Click "Start"
  • Click "All Programs"
  • Click "Windows Update"
  • Download all updates
Step 2 - Disable & Re-Enable Internet Explorer 9
  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.jpg, type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates in the left pane.
  2. Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.
  3. Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
  4. Click one of the following:
    • Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9, and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer).
    • Restart later (to wait until you shut down or restart your computer).
Step 3 - Clean Out The Registry
  • Download a Registry Cleaner
The most important step is to download a registry cleaner and let it fix any of the errors which Windows may have. A registry cleaner is a type of software which is able to scan through your system and get rid of the various problems that your system will have inside its "registry database". If you're experiencing problems with this part of your PC, it's important that you're able to clean out any of the problems that your system will have, in order to allow Internet Explorer 9 to work properly again.
I recommend you should download Frontline Registry Cleaner to fix the problems you're experiencing with Internet Explorer 9. This tool is the most effective at getting rid of the various problems that Windows may have with its registry - allowing your system to run much smoother as a result.

Retrieving acess data which is password protected thru VB


You will need to use a connection string. But - before you can configure the string correctly, I'd need to know how the data is stored (Access, SQL, ODBC, etc). You can find examples online. Just know that you are looking for "Connection String." Here's two examples:
1. For MS Access (Jet files):
' Set up the connection string.
m_strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=" & strDestDBPath & ";" & _
"Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=5" ' NOTE: Use Type=5 for Jet 4.x.

2. For SQL database:
g_strADOConn = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;" & _
"Data Source=SERVER_NAME;" & _
"Initial Catalog=DATABASE_NAME;" & _
"User ID=mssql_userid;" & _
"Password=mssql_password;"

Validating in jsp


JavaScript Form Validation JavaScript can be used to validate input data in HTML forms before sending off the content to a server.
Form data that typically are checked by a JavaScript could be:
  • has the user left required fields empty?
  • has the user entered a valid e-mail address?
  • has the user entered a valid date?
  • has the user entered text in a numeric field?
Required Fields The function below checks if a required field has been left empty. If the required field is blank, an alert box alerts a message and the function returns false. If a value is entered, the function returns true (means that data is OK):
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{
alert(alerttxt);return false;
}
else
{
return true;
}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_required(email,"Email must be filled out!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this)"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>
E-mail Validation The function below checks if the content has the general syntax of an email.
This means that the input data must contain at least an @ sign and a dot (.). Also, the @ must not be the first character of the email address, and the last dot must at least be one character after the @ sign:
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_email(email,"Not a valid e-mail address!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this);"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>

Mun MSCONFIG and shut off everything you don't really need to run in the background. Reboot and do a full virus scan and a full malware / spyware scan. Next, run a greigtry cleaner program. All of these will work together to speed you up but the registry cleaner will really make the difference. It all but tripled the speed of my laptop.
