  1. The malware file had been removed. But the startup/registry entry remains. A CCleaner registry clean-up might help...
  2. 1 great reason to upgrade ... Windows 7 is a lean, mean, fit Vista
  3. ^ Yes you must have received the serial 10 websites have been being declared by the Judges, and have been put up for a public vote. Click HERE to cast your vote for your favourite Windows Vista Website, and in the process also get to know some other real good ones !

  6. We are organising a contest to recognise some of the best Windows Vista Blogs and Websites. Steve Sinchak MVP of TweakVista.com, John Barnett MVP of VistaSupport.mvps.org, Kerry Brown MVP of VistaHelp.ca, Steven Bink of bink.nu, James Stables of Windows Vista Magazine, Emil Protalinski of Arstechnica and myself are some of the judges.

  7. There are several sites, mentioning tweaks about how to create a Flip 3D shortcuts on the desktopp: Basically as follows: Right click on your desktop. Select New > Shortcut. Copy-Paste RunDll32 DwmApi #105 into the location box > Next. In name enter Flip3D, and click on Finish. Copy/Cut-Paste your new shortcut where ever you want. But fewer mentioning how to reclaim the Flid 3D icon. Here is how how can use the original Flip 3D icon: A copy of the Flip 3D icon is present in each user profile, and also in the Default user profile. Follow these steps to restore the icon to your user account: Click Start, type the following and press Enter : %systemdrive%\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch Right-click the Switch between windows shortcut and choose Copy (Keyboard shortcut: CTRL+C) Click Start, type the following and press Enter: %userprofile%\ AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch Right-click an empty area in the folder, and choose Paste (Keyboard shortcut: CTRL+V) This way not only have you created the Flip 3D shortcut on your desktop, but given it back, its original icon.
  8. Here is a way to convert Google or any Gadget and use it on your Vista's SideBar. I have tried it successfully with Widgets from widgetbox too. You can transform almost any gadget into one that can live on the Windows Vista sidebar or your Desktop. Download & Install Amnesty Generator. Then, choose a Web gadget you'd like to turn into a Vista gadget, click a few buttons to display the gadget's underlying HTML code. Copy and paste that code into Amnesty Generator, change a few settings, such as the gadget's name or size, if you wish, and tell Amnesty Generator to turn it into a Windows Vista gadget. The gadget will appear in the Windows Vista Gadget Gallery. From there you can move it to the Sidebar or even your Desktop.

Rt-click on Computer and click on Properties. Here you will get to see your machines Windows Experience Index ! My hpdv6226us shows ALL OF 2.2 actually! But you can easily change this figure as follows ! Well, this is more of a gag tweak, actually ! Go to C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore and check for the latest xml file. Open it with Word. Navigate to Lines 12-19. They will show scores of your PC on various accounts. Although the scores are meant to have a range from 1.0 to 5.9, you can just change the main one in Line-12 to whatever figure you want. Save the file with the same name. You may have to disable UAC. Now check your WEI ! It will show you the figure you wrote ! And your "new" WEI will be permanently saved till you run the performance test again.
