Sir pl tl me that whch antivirus is suitable for window 8


Windows 8 includes an automatically loaded updated version of Windows Defender
which is a full antivirus based on Microsoft Security Essentials.
(Windows Defender
for XP, Vista, and Windows 7 was only antispyware.)
So if you upgrade the protection
is automatic and is on by default at installation.

Windows Defender and Windows SmartScreen fight viruses and other malware

Registry Hacking


<b><u>Display legal notice on startup</u></b>:<br />Wanna tell your friends about the do's and dont's in your computer when they login in your absence. Well you can do it pretty easily by displaying a legal notice at system start up.<br />REGEDIT<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system]<br />"legalnoticecaption"="enter your notice caption"<br />"legalnoticetext"="enter your legal notice text"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatic Administrator Login:</b></u><br />Well here's the trick which you can use to prove that Windows XP is not at all secure as multi-user operating system. Hacking the system registry from any account having access to system registry puts you in to the administrator account. <br />REGEDIT 4<br />[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]<br />"AutoAdminLogon"="1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>No Shutdown:</b></u><br />Wanna play with your friends by removing the shutdown option from start menu in their computer.<br />Just hack it down !!!<br />Regedit<br />HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer<br />"NoClose"="DWORD:1"<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Menu Delays:</b></u><br /> Another minor and easy tweak to remove any delay from menus sliding out. For this you will need to use regedit (open regedit by going to Start -&gt; Run..., then typing 'regedit' and pressing enter). The key you need to change is located in HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. The actual key is called MenuShowDelay - all you have to do is change the value to 0. Remember, you will have to re-boot your computer for this tweak to take effect.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>GPEDIT.MSC And Autoplay</b></u><br /> A great tweaking file that comes with XP is gpedit.msc. Go to Start -&gt; Run... and then type in 'gpedit.msc' and press enter. This is effectively the Policies Editor, and it comes in handy often. For example, if you hate CD autoplay like I do and want to permanently disable it, you can use this tool to do so. Just run gpedit.msc, then go to Computer Configuration -&gt; Administrative Templates -&gt; System. In here you can see the value 'Turn Off Autoplay'. Right-click on it and then click 'Properties'.<br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Increasing options in add/remove programs: </b></u><br /> Not a fan of MSN Messenger? don't want Windows Media Player on your system? Fair enough, but if you go to Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel, by default none of Windows XP's 'built in' programs are visible. it's fairly easy to change, though... just open the file X:\Windows\inf\sysoc.inf (where X: is the drive letter where Windows XP is installed) in Notepad. You should see a section of the file something like this: <br /> [Components]<br />NtComponents=ntoc.dll,NtOcSetupProc,,4<br />WBEM=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,wbemoc.inf,hide,7<br />Display=desk.cpl,DisplayOcSetupProc,,7<br />Fax=fxsocm.dll,FaxOcmSetupProc,fxsocm.inf,,7<br />NetOC=netoc.dll,NetOcSetupProc,netoc.inf,,7<br />iis=iis.dll,OcEntry,iis.inf,,7<br />com=comsetup.dll,OcEntry,comnt5.inf,hide,7<br />dtc=msdtcstp.dll,OcEntry,dtcnt5.inf,hide,7<br />IndexSrv_System = setupqry.dll,IndexSrv,setupqry.inf,,7<br />TerminalServer=TsOc.dll, HydraOc, TsOc.inf,hide,2<br />msmq=msmqocm.dll,MsmqOcm,msmqocm.inf,,6<br />ims=imsinsnt.dll,OcEntry,ims.inf,,7<br />fp_extensions=fp40ext.dll,FrontPage4Extensions,fp40ext.inf,,7<br />AutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,au.inf,hide,7<br />msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br />RootAutoUpdate=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,rootau.inf,,7<br />IEAccess=ocgen.dll,OcEntry,ieaccess.inf,,7<br /> This is a list of all components installed at the moment. I've taken the example of MSN Messenger - the program entry called 'msmsgs', third-last line. You can see the word 'hide' highlighted - this is the string which tells Windows not to display the component in the Add/Remove Programs list. Fix this up by simply deleting the word 'hide' like so:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,hide,7<br /> To this:<br /> msmsgs=msgrocm.dll,OcEntry,msmsgs.inf,,7<br /> Now, after restarting, you should be able to see MSN Messenger in the Add/Remove Programs list. If you want to be able to quickly view and remove all components, simply open the sysoc.inf file and do a global find and replace for the word ",hide" and replace it with a single comma ",". <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Automatically Kill Programs At Shutdown:</b></u><br /> don't you hate it when, while trying to shut down, you get message boxes telling you that a program is still running? Making it so that Windows automatically kills applications running is a snap. Simply navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop directory in the Registry, then alter the key AutoEndTasks to the value 1. <br /> <u><b><br /></b></u><br /><u><b>Speeding Up Share Viewing:</b></u><br /> This is a great tweak. Before I found it, I was always smashing my head against the table waiting to view shares on other computers. Basically, when you connect to another computer with Windows XP, it checks for any Scheduled tasks on that computer - a fairly useless task, but one that can add up to 30 seconds of waiting on the other end - not good! Fortunately, it's fairly easy to disable this process. First, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace in the Registry. Below that, there should be a key called {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}. Just delete this, and after a restart, Windows will no longer check for scheduled tasks - mucho performance improvement!<br /> <b><u><br /></u></b><br /><b><u>Create a Shortcut to Lock Your Computer</u> </b><br /> Leaving your computer in a hurry but you don't want to log off? You can double-click a shortcut on your desktop to quickly lock the keyboard and display without using CTRL+ALT+DEL or a screen saver. To create a shortcut on your desktop to lock your computer: Right-click the desktop. Point to New, and then click Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard opens. In the text box, type the following: rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation Click Next. Enter a name for the shortcut. You can call it "Lock Workstation" or choose any name you like. Click Finish. You can also change the shortcut's icon (my personal favorite is the padlock icon in shell32.dll). To change the icon: Right click the shortcut and then select Properties. Click the Shortcut tab, and then click the Change Icon button. In the Look for icons in this file text box, type: Shell32.dll. Click OK. Select one of the icons from the list and then click OK You could also give it a shortcut keystroke such CTRL+ALT+L. This would save you only one keystroke from the normal command, but it could be more convenient.<br /><br /><span>Note: Before you can change any registry take backup.</span><br />

How to add Windows 7 new keyboard shortcuts to Windows Vista.


If you have liked the new hotkey keyboard shortcuts which Windows 7 has introduced, you can add the same in Windows Vista or XP too

Download and use an app called Windows 7 Shortcuts. Shortcuts Included:
Win+Left/Right arrows: Dock the window to each side of the monitor
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window
Win+Down arrow: Minimize the window/Restore the window if it's maximized
Partially Included:
Win+Space: Note from the developer: AHK won't allow multiple windows to be made transparent easily. Therefore, I've changed it to make the active window transparent until it is released.

How to widen my screen


    • 1 Use the zoom in and out shortcut with your mouse. Many programs such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Microsoft Word allow users to zoom in and out quickly using their mouse and keyboard. Hold down the &quot;Control&quot; (&quot;Ctrl&quot;) key, and then move the mouse wheel forward to zoom in or backward to zoom out until the text fits your screen to your liking.
    • 2 Use the zoom command from your program&#039;s menus. If you don&#039;t have a mouse with a wheel or the mouse zoom shortcut does not work, try locating a &quot;zoom&quot; command in the &quot;View&quot; menu of your program. Many programs have an option to zoom in and out under the &quot;View&quot; menu, which will make text larger or smaller. You may have to select &quot;Zoom in&quot; or &quot;Zoom out&quot; several times before the text is the right size.
    • 3 Change your screen resolution. Altering your screen resolution can change the size of windows and text on your screen. Right click the desktop, select &quot;Properties&quot; (Windows XP) or &quot;Personalize&quot; (Windows Vista and 7), click the &quot;Settings&quot; tab (XP), or the &quot;Display Settings&quot; link (Vista) or click &quot;Display&quot; and then &quot;Adjust Screen Resolution&quot; (7). Adjust the resolution slider up or down, click &quot;Apply&quot; and then click &quot;OK.&quot;

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
Shortcut.
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck

Desktop icons lost


Sadly, there is no straightforward command you can use to recover them, but well, there are three ways, really, that you can get your icons back, depending on which ones were lost, that you are referring to. for this, I'm assuming you're running a more recent version of Windows.
----- For Windows XP ------
1) for recently deleted icons- check your Recycle bin, they could still be there.

2)for system-installed icons, such as My Computer, and Internet Explorer- you can recover these by going into your Display Properties (Start -> Control Panel -> Display). Select the Desktop tab, and click on Customize Desktop. Make sure the "General" tab is selected, then, under the "Desktop icons" section, tick off the icons you want to restore. click on "Ok" when you're finished, and Presto! those icons are up on your screen.

3)If the above two options don't work, you may have to add them manually ( a pain, I know). To add a shortcut in this fashion, right-click anywhere on the desktop, and select New -> Shortcut. you will have another window appear on your screen, asking you where the file you are making a shortcut to is located, and what you want to call it. follow the steps, and when you're finished, you should have a working icon. (another option would be to reinstall the software that made the icons, but that's also a pain in itself.).

----for windows vista ----

1) check the Recycle Bin (same procedure as Windows Xp, although, if your recycle bin option is deleted, then you have a problem that can be solved by using #2)

2) For system-installed shortcuts- follow This excellent tutorial.

3)Manually installing shortcuts- same as for XP.
