Risky Tricks >>Worth Trying

CAUTION: Plz Backup ur registry before editing itHow do I get the "Administrator" name on Welcome ScreenTo get Admin account on the "Welcome Screen" as well as the other usernames, make sure that there are no accounts logged in.Press "ctrl-alt-del" twice and you should be able to login as administrator!finally worked for me after i found out that all accounts have to be logged out firstFix Movie Inteferance in AVI filesIf you have any AVI files that you saved in Windows 9x, which have interference when opened in Windows XP, there is an easy fix to get rid of the interference:Open Windows Movie Maker.Click View and then click Options.Click in the box to remove the check mark beside Automatically create clips.Now, import the movie file that has interference and drag it onto the timeline. Then save the movie, and during the rerendering, the interference will be removed.Speed up the Start MenuThe default speed of the Start Menu is pretty slow, but you can fix that by editing a Registry Key. Fire up the Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop \ MenuShowDelayBy default, the value is 400. Change this to a smaller value, such as 0, to speed it upStop Windows Messenger from Auto-StartingIf you're not a big fan of Windows Messenger simply delete the following Registry Key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MSMSGSDisplay Hibernate Option on the Shut Down dialogFor some reason, Hibernate may not be available from the default Shut Down dialog. But you can enable it simply enough, by holding down the SHIFT key while the dialog is visible. Now you see it, now you don't!How to rename Multiple files in one go ?A new, small, neat feature for winXP deals with renaming files. Its real simple:Select several files in Explorer, press F2 and rename one of those files to something else. All the selected files get renamed to the new file name (plus a number added to the end).Internet Explorer TaskbarWinXP will group multiple open windows (IE windows for example) into one group on the task bar to keep the desktop clear. This can be annoying at times - especially when comparing different web pages because you have to go back to the task bar, click on the group and then click on the page you want and then you only get one page because you have to click on each one separately. I think the default for this is 8 windows - any combination of apps or utilities open.You can modify this behaviour by adding this reg key at:Change number of windows that are open before XP will start grouping them on the TaskbarHKEY_CURRRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\add reg_Dword "TaskbarGroupSize"modify "TaskbarGroupSize" entry to be the number of windows you want open before XP starts to group them on the task bar. A value of 2 will cause the Taskbar buttons to always groupDNS CACHINGwhen you connect to a web site your computer sends information back and forth, this is obvious. Some of this information deals with resolving the site name to an IP address, the stuff that tcp/ip really deals with, not words. This is DNS information and is used so that you will not need to ask for the site location each and every time you visit the site. Although WinXP and win2000 has a pretty efficient DNS cache, you can increase its overall performance by increasing its size.You can do this with the registry entries below:************begin copy and paste***********Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters]"CacheHashTableBucketSize"=dword:00000001"CacheHashTableSize"=dword:00000180"MaxCacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000fa00"MaxSOACacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000012d************end copy and paste***********make a new text file and rename it to dnscache.reg. The copy and paste the above into it and save it. Then merge it into the registry
