A central hierarchical database used in Microsoft Windows 98, Windows CE, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 used to store information that is necessary to configure the system for one or more users, applications and hardware devices.

The Registry contains information that Windows continually references during operation, such as profiles for each user, the applications installed on the computer and the types of documents that each can create, property sheet settings for folders and application icons, what hardware exists on the system, and the ports that are being used.

The Registry replaces most of the text-based .ini files that are used in Windows 3.x and MS-DOS configuration files, such as the Autoexec.bat and Config.sys. Although the Registry is common to several Windows operating systems, there are some differences among them.A registry hive is a group of keys, subkeys, and values in the registry that has a set of supporting files that contain backups of its data. The supporting files for all hives except HKEY_CURRENT_USER are in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config folder on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista. The supporting files for HKEY_CURRENT_USER are in the %SystemRoot%\Profiles\Username folder. The file name extensions of the files in these folders indicate the type of data that they contain. Also, the lack of an extension may sometimes indicate the type of data that they contain.

How to speed up your windows computer(xp,vista,win7)


This has been a question of a million people that "How can i speed up my computer" so today I will share some small infos that will help you to speed up your windows based pc/notebook/laptop with a very small knowledge about your computer.
#Your computer has some beautiful tools built in to help you speed up your pc. The main reason that makes computers slow are basically less memory, running more service/programs at once and some Regestry error which occurs due to various software install and un-install. Regestry errors makes your computer works more and get less work done. so this is what you could do

#1.open run/search box from the start menu nad type in this" cleanmgr" delete/cleanup the files you want to remove/ you don't need. That will give you some extra space to work with.

#2.Download ccleaner which is free software reomended by various computer experts. install and run the software. It will also help you to cleanup some extra space. you can use the regestry option to check for some simple regestry error and fix those.

#3.Open ccleaner and go to "tools">>startup and change the programs you don't want to start when you start your computer for exmaple. skype,yahoo,fax/printer service etc. This will decrease your computers bootup time.

#4.from the start menu open the run/search box and type in "dfrgui". this will defragment your computer and fix some regestry error.

#5. Download any good regestry cleaner. I will recomend Regestry Mechanics a software made by pctool the same sompany makes the best anti spyware " Spyware doctor".It will help you to fix almost all the registry error.

Now restart your computer and you can feel the difference by your self. thank you!

Error 1311: source file not found:E\LENOVO3000 Y410 USER GUIDE\VISTA\6.LAN\FILES6~1.cab , Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.


The cause of the error is a problem with the Microsoft® Windows® Installer program used by the software. It produces the error when the registry entry AllocateCDRoms at the following subkey is set to a value of 1.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon



Warning!
Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft has provided a wealth of critical information you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com/support.

Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined in ARTICLE-ID: Q132332 "How to Back Up the Registry" in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.

Start the Registry Editor and locate the following subkey:

goto start->run and type regedit to start registry editor

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon


Change the value for the AllocateCDRoms entry to 0.
Exit the Registry Editor.
