Clean Your RAM & Make Your Comp Speed Better

Clean your RAM
You may recognize that your system gets slower and slower when playing and working a lot with your Desktop or a laptop. That
’s because your RAM is full of remaining progress pieces you do not need any more.
Open the notepad and type

FreeMem=Space(64000000)
in this file and save it as RAMcleaner.vbs [ You should choose the
“All Files” option when u save it ]

Run the file and ur RAM may be cleaned :>
Of course u can edit the code in the file for a greater
“cleaning-progress”.

FreeMem=Space(128000000)

just try it out.. it worked for me.

Formatting fixes perhaps? Less bold, more just like how mine is right now. It's easier to read, and doesn't make it look like you're begging for attention.

If you're going to post tips, most users are on Win7, so focus on that. Pick some things that may be more helpful than enabling/disabling a drive letter or locking the homepage, I'd hope most people would know how to do that. Go for something challenging and new... I love challenges...

Megaupload Download Trick, skip timer and captchas.100% working..

If you want to download from Megaupload without captchas or countdown timers, here is a trick worth trying out. It helps to convert megaupload links into direct download links.
Megaupload Direct Download Link Generator

If you are having a download link from megaupload like
Quote:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GVOMXHQ2
then convert it to

Quote:
http://www.megaupload.com/mgr_dl.php?d=GVOMXHQ2
That is, just place "/mgr_dl.php?" just after the ".com/"

You can place this direct link in download managers for immediate downloads from megaupload.

No Coundown

No Captchas

Maximum Speed

FAQ---
Q-Not working!!!
A-A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

I got that error, and it said I already downloaded when I haven't. Weird.
Use a download manager to use this trick.. like DownThemAll! or orbit

Some Of Windows 7 Tricks and Secrets
#1 Windows Management. By now, you’ve probably seen that Windows 7 does a lot to make window management easier: you can “dock†a window to the left or right half of the screen by simply dragging it to the edge; similarly, you can drag the window to the top of the screen to maximize it, and double-click the window top / bottom border to maximize it vertically with the same horizontal width. What you might not know is that all these actions are also available with keyboard shortcuts:

* Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock;
* Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximizes and restores / minimizes;
* Win+Shift+Up Arrow and Win+Shift+Down Arrow maximizes and restores the vertical size.

This side-by-side docking feature is particularly invaluable on widescreen monitors – it makes the old Windows way of shift-clicking on two items in the taskbar and then using the context menu to arrange them feel really painful





#2 Cut Out The Clutter. Working on a document in a window and want to get rid of all the extraneous background noise? Simply hit Win+Home to minimize all the non-active background windows, keeping the window you’re using in its current position. When you’re ready, simply press Win+Home again to restore the background windows to their original locations.




3.# Multi-Monitor Windows Management. The earlier tip on window management showed how you can dock windows within a monitor. One refinement of those shortcuts is that you can use Win+Shift+Left Arrow and Win+Shift+Right Arrow to move windows from one monitor to another – keeping them in the same relative location to the monitor’s top-left origin.




4.# Command Junkies Only. One of the most popular power toys in Windows XP was “Open Command Prompt Hereâ€, which enabled you to use the graphical shell to browse around the file system and then use the context menu to open a command prompt at the current working directory. In Windows 7 (and in Windows Vista, incidentally – although not many folk knew about it), you can simply hold the Shift key down while selecting the context menu to get exactly the same effect. If the current working directory is a network location, it will automatically map a drive letter for you.




#5 It’s a Global Village. If you’ve tried to change your desktop wallpaper, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a set of wallpapers there that match the locale you selected when you installed Windows. (If you picked US, you’ll see beautiful views of Crater Lake in Oregon, the Arches National Park, a beach in Hawai’i, etc.) In fact, there are several sets of themed wallpapers installed based on the language you choose, but the others are in a hidden directory. If you’re feeling in an international mood, simply browse to C:\\Windows\\Globalization\\MCT and you’ll see a series of pictures under the Wallpaper directory for each country. Just double-click on the theme file in the Theme directory to display a rotation through all the pictures for that country. (Note that some countries contain a generic set of placeholder art for now.)





#6
The Black Box Recorder. Every developer wishes there was a way that an end-users could quickly and simply record a repro for the problem that they’re running into that is unique to their machine. Windows 7 comes to the rescue! Part of the in-built diagnostic tools that we use internally to send feedback on the product, the Problem Steps Recorder provides a simple screen capture tool that enables you to record a series of actions. Once you hit “recordâ€, it tracks your mouse and keyboard and captures screenshots with any comments you choose to associate alongside them. Once you stop recording, it saves the whole thing to a ZIP file, containing an HTML-based “slide show†of the steps. It’s a really neat little tool and I can’t wait for it to become ubiquitous on every desktop! The program is called psr.exe; you can also search for it from Control Panel under “Record steps to reproduce a problemâ€.

. View high quality videos
Youtube gives you the option to switch to high quality videos for some of the videos, however you can check if a video is available in high quality format by appending ‘&fmt=18′(stereo, 480 x 270 resolution) or ‘&fmt=22′(stereo, 1280 x 720 resolution) for even higher quality.

2. Embed Higher Quality Videos
While the above trick works for playback, if however you want to embed hig quality videos you need to append “&ap=%2526fmt%3D18″ and “&ap=%2526fmt%3D22″ to the embed url.

3. Cut the chase and link to the interesting part
Linking to a video where the real action starts at 3 minutes 22 seconds, wondered if you could make it start at 03:22? You are in luck. All you have to do is add #t=03m22s (#t=XXmYYs for XX mins and YY seconds) to the end of the URL.

4. Hide the search box
The search box appears when you hover over an embedded video. To hide the search box add ‘&showsearch=0′ to the embed url.

5. Embed only a part of Video
Just append ‘&start=30′ to skip first 30s of the video. In general you can modify the value after start= to the number of seconds you want to skip the video for.

6. Autoplay an embedded video
Normally when you embed a Youtube video and load the page, the player is loaded and it sits there waiting for you to hit the play button. You can make the video play automatically by adding ‘&autoplay=1′ to the url part of the embed code.

7. Loop an embedded video
Append ‘&loop=1′ to make the video start again without user intervention after it reaches the end.

8. Disable Related Videos
Publishing your content in the form of Youtube video? Don’t want people to see other people’s content that may be related but may as well be in competition to you? Just add ‘&rel=0′ to the end of the url part of the embed code and you just turned off the related video suggestions!

9. Bypass Youtube Regional Filtering
Some videos are only available in certain parts of the world. Your IP Address is used to determine your location and then allow or deny access to the video. Change the url from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=<somecode> to http://www.youtube.com/v/<somecode>

10. Download Video
Although not inherently a youtube trick but useful all the same for downloading videos. Just change youtube to kickyoutube in the url of the video and it will take you to kickyoutube.com with all the options for downloading the video you were watching.
