  1. Windows Vista has an animated Vista Logo what is displayed before the Login screen. You can do a similar thing in WinXP. Just download the required BMP file

    After you downloaded the file open regedit and goto: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

    In the right-side panel change the Wallpaper String value to the Path of the downloaded BMP file.

    e.g.: If you saved the BMP file to "C:\Startup.bmp", you have to set the Wallpaper value to C:\Startup.bmp. If you saved the BMP file to D:\Startup.bmp you have to set the value to D:\Startup.bmp :icon_rolleyes:

    Now you'll get a similar Vista Logo before your Login screen in XP too.

    Enjoy :whistle:

  3. Next-Generation web-site made certain things clear thanks to their phone interview with Microsoft's Sam Glassenberg, who said: "DirectX 10.1 fully supports DirectX 10 hardware. No hardware support is being removed. It's strictly a superset. It's basically an update to DirectX 10 that extends the hardware functionality slightly."

    However, Sam confirmed that existing graphics cards may still not be able to use all the new features of DirectX 10.1. At the same time he stress that applications designed specifically for DirectX 10.1 are very unlikely to appear, because overall, the updates aren

  4. DropMyRights is a free program from a Microsoft employee named Michael Howard, that greatly increases the security of Windows XP and has not gotten the attention that I think it deserves.

    A big reason that Macs and Linux are safer than Windows is that running as a restricted user is the norm. Trying to run Windows while logged on as a restricted user comes with a host of problems, so the reality is that almost everyone runs their Windows XP computer as an unrestricted (Administrator) user. This is a shame, because it means that malicious software can be surreptitiously installed and once running, it can modify or delete critical Windows system files.

    The way DropMyRights makes Windows more secure is by running selected programs in a restricted environment (i.e. with lower rights) even when logged on to Windows XP as an Administrator.

    A Windows XP computer can be surprisingly vulnerable to malicious software, especially if you are not up to date on installing bug fixes/patches to both Windows and all your applications.

    * Did you know that Windows can get infected just by viewing a Web page? It can.

    * The old rule about not opening e-mail attachments is not sufficient anymore. Simply reading an e-mail message can infect Windows.

    * There have been instances where simply viewing a picture could have installed malicious software.

  6. hey rick, is there a way to remove styler from startup after 1st run via ure addon?cuz after its ran and done its thing, we dont need it to load and apply settings after each reboot,settings stay.but this brings me with one question, wouldint it be possible to just run styler.exe via runonce?or does the .exe export after its ran an entrie to send it to startup?

    Just use go to Start-->Run-->msconfig-->Startup and disable the styler from the startup. Reboot and styler will not show up again in your startup

    Hope this helps :icon_rolleyes:
