boost full speed to your broadband connection

It's Risky ...
I am not responsible for any mishappening... Be CAUTIOUS!!!

1.Go to===>> "My Network Places" properties , highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose "Advanced" then "Advanced Settings". Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.

Continue as indicated below steps:
1. from the Windows XP CD in the support directory from the support cab, extract the file netcap.exe and place it in a directory on your hard drive or even in the root of your C:\\ drive.

2. next, open up a command prompt window and change directories to where you put netcap.exe then type "netcap/?". It will list some commands that are available for netcap and a netmon driver will be installed. At the bottom you will see your adapters. You should see two of them if using a 3Com card. One will be for LAN and the other will be for WAN something or other.

3. Next type "netcap/Remove". This will remove the netmon driver.

4. Open up control panel ==> system ==> hardware==>device manager and look at your network adapters. You should now see two of them and one will have a yellow ! on it. Right click on the one without the yellow ! and choose uninstall. YES! you are uninstalling your network adapter, continue with the uninstall. Do not restart yet.

5. Check your connection properties to make sure that no connection exists. If you get a wizard just cancel out of it.

6. Now restart the machine and go to your connection properties again and you should have a new connection called "Local area connection 2". highlight the connection then at the menu bar choose "Advanced" then "Advanced Settings". Uncheck the two boxes in the lower half for the bindings for File and Printer sharing and Client for MS networks. Click OK.

8. Choose connection properties and uncheck the "QOS" box

9. Restart the machine and enjoy the increased responsiveness of IE, faster page loading, and a connection speed boost...

How To Log On Automatically On Windows Vista

Sometimes you don't have extremely important or sensitive information on your computer ( for example a gaming computer ) and you don't like to log in every single time you reboot your computer.

You can set your computer to log in automatically.

1. Type control userpasswords2 into the Start menu search box and press Enter to go to Advanced User Accounts Control Panel.

2. Uncheck the box "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer", and then press Apply. Enter the right username and password in the boxes shown. Press OK.

Now your computer will log in automatically each time you start it.

Create Your Own Logon Message {Cool Trick}

Create Your Own Logon Message You can create a message that will appear when you log on to your computer.

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK. In the Registry Editor, drill down to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\Winlogon

Right-click LegalNoticeCaption,
click Modify,

type My Windows XP Machine, and then click OK.

Right-click LegalNoticeText, click Modify, and then type your message.

Close the editor and your new message will appear at every log on.

This tip applies to computers that are part of a domain.

For stand-alone or peer-to-peer networks, the custom screen appears just before the Welcome screen.

You may need to have an administrator account on your computer to make changes to the registry. Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system.

At the very least, you should back up any valued data on the computer before making changes to the registry.

But you can also dig some private pictures directories.

Try this little code in Google, you may find lot of Non public pictures

Quote:
intitle:index.of +"Indexed by Apache::Gallery"

You can also narow your search by adding a word at the end, for example:
Quote:
intitle:index.of +"Indexed by Apache::Gallery" +dbilla

Maybe some of you guys use Apache Gallery for your own private pictures.

If you want to verify if your own private pictures ares indexed, just paste this code in Google.

Enabling right click on sites that disable it !

This is a tip on how to Enable right click function on sites that disable it.

Lots of web sites have disabled the right click function of the mouse button... it's really, really annoying. This is done so that you don't steal (via right-click->save picture) their photos or images or any other goodies. Unfortunately, it disables ALL right-click functionality: copy, paste, open in new window.

The solution is simple, just get used to right clicking and hitting the Esc "Escape" Key "NOT at the same time but very close to it" right click first then Esc. Until you are allowed access to the context menu to copy/save the file/photo.... Sometimes it takes a couple of tries but with practice comes perfection.

Make fake viruses in windows [Advance]

We Take no responsibility for any of this tricks , Do it at your own risk

1. Fake computer virus error message

This one is by far, the easiest and all you have to do is to make a new text document with notepad, type msg * YOUR MESSAGE and save as anything.bat. As always, make sure that you select All files instead of Text Document.


2. Forced shutdown trojan.

This will display a custom error message and start a countdown which will shut down the computer.

Right-click your desktop and create a new shortcut.
Paste the following code into the Location box in the Create Shortcut menu:
shutdown -s -t 30 -c
“Your message here
Replace 30 with the length of the countdown you want (in seconds) and place your custom error message between the quotes. Click next and name the shortcut to something the victim would be likely to click on such as
“Internet explorer” or “My Documents”, etc.

Next you
’d want to change the icon. Right-click on the shortcut you made and click properties. Find the Change Icon button and click it. Choose a suitable icon for the name you chose earlier.


And that
’s all! Now you just have to sneak the shortcut onto the victim’s desktop and run!

Note: to stop it, open Run from the start menu and type shutdown-a.


3. Endless Command prompt windows trojan

This will open up a series of command prompt windows that will never end.
The basic idea is that there are two .bat files that open the other one when opened, so the other one opens the first one again and the windows just won
’t stop coming.

How to do this:
1. Fire up notepad and type: start 2.bat
2. Save it as 1.bat (make sure you choose all files when saving it)
3. Make another new text document and type: start 1.bat
4. Save it as 2.bat into the same folder as the other one.

All you have to do to start it is to click on either of them.

The only way to stop it is to wait for the windows to become so numerous that they are a group on the taskbar. Then you can use Close group to get rid of the bastards.

4. Fake Command prompt trojan viruses

This is also a good way to make the victim believe that a worm is gnawing at their hard drive and that they can
’t do anything to stop it.

Open up notepad and type @echo off

* To make text appear, type it after an echo tag.
* To have the the commands wait for the user to press any key type pause

(Note: if you write pause >nul it won
’t display Press Any key to continue…)

* To have a complete high-speed description of files in the drive of the .bat file, type dir /s
* You can also initiate any other command we covered earlier, such as shutdown, error message, etc.

And why no include all of these in one fake virus?

Add the Quick Launch Bar to the Taskbar in Windows 7

The above screenshot is the Windows 7 taskbar after changing back to XP/Vista mode, and adding the quick launch bar back. Looks just like Vista doesn
’t it?

Adding the Quick Launch Bar Back to Windows 7

To add the toolbar back, you
’ll want to right-click on an open area of the taskbar, and choose Toolbars \\ New Toolbar from the menu. You should probably also unlock the taskbar at this point.

Now
’s the slightly tricky part… you’ll want to paste the following path into the location bar:

Code:
%appdata%\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Quick Launch
Make sure that the location bar shows the full path, like the next screenshot, before you choose the
“Select Folder” button.

You
’ll immediately notice the Quick Launch toolbar on the taskbar, but it’s all the way over on the right, so you’ll want to click on the dotted lines and then drag the toolbar all the way to the left (which is slightly tricky sometimes). Note that you’ll need to right-click and unlock the taskbar before you can move the toolbar.

There we go, it
’s over on the left… but now you’ll want to adjust the regular taskbar toolbar to be closer to the left, so use the dotted lines to drag it over as well.

The normal Quick Launch that we
’re used to doesn’t have text, so right-click on the dotted lines and uncheck “Show Text” as well as“Show Title” from the menu.

Once you
’re sure it’s the way you want it, you should check the “Lock the taskbar” again.

And there you are, the quick launch bar has returned and there
’s virtually no way anybody would know this is Windows 7.
