Windows 7 Finished Requests

Recommended Posts

Personally I have no use for libraries so I've already removed them using the registry edit I referenced. I have no idea if you could make it an option to remove as opposed to hide; I guess you would have to ask others for what they would prefer - hide or removal.

Anymore requests ChiefZeke?

I've done some research using the link provided and i will be adding...

//Removes 'Libraries' from left panel of explorer

These are the tweaks 14 21 next in line to be added, if you want anymore please say...

//Mouse Hover Time

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

MouseHoverTime="20",String

//Double Mouse Speed

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

MouseSpeed="2",String

//Enable Large System Cache

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory

LargeSystemCache=0,DWORD

If the Large Cache option is on, the manager marks all the free memory, which isn't being used by the system and/or applications, as freely available for disk caching. On the flip-side (with a small cache), the manager instead only sets aside 4MB of memory for disk caching in an attempt to accelerate the launch of applications. Or in a more technical approach, if enabled the system will favor system-cache working sets over process working sets (with a working set basically being the memory used by components of a process).

//Disbale Superfetch

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

EnableSuperfetch=-,DWORD

//Disable Prefetch

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

EnablePrefectcher=0,DWORD

//Increase Icon Cache

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

Max Cached Icons= 2048,DWORD

//Disable Paging of Kernel

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

DisablePagingExecutive=1,dword

Disable Paging Executive

This will prevent pages sections from RAM going to the hard drive. If you have a large amount of RAM at least 256Mb (I suggest 512) you might want to keep the data in your RAM to improve your performance considerably due to reduced amount of hard drive swappage.

//Block Negative DNS Entries

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters

MaxNegativeCacheTtlValue=0,Dword

To force Windows 7 NOT to cache negative entries

//Keep Positive DNS Entries (4 Hours)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters

MaxCacheTtl=14400,dword

To force Windows 7 to keep positive entries in DNS Cache for only 4 hours instead of the default 24 hours

//Show System Files

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

ShowSuperHidden=1,dword

//Always Unload DLL

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

AlwaysUnloadDLL=1,dword

Explorer does not unloadDLL files from memory right away. They always remain in the memory for a period of time that is often quite lengthy. To unload DLLs when you are done with them navigate to

//Enable Boot Defrag

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction

Enable=Y, string

//Disable Last File Access Timestamp

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate=1,dword

//Disable 8.3 Name Creation

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem]

"NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation"=dword:00000001

Short names is something that is needed for DOS compatibility. Most of us will want to turn this off. The only time you'll want to leave this on is if you are supporting DOS or win 3x based clients.

//Enabled Avalon Effects

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer

"MILDesktop"=dword:00000001

"MILExplorer"=dword:00000001

; Disable Tool Tips

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

"ShowInfoTip"=dword:00000000

;get rid of the Windows Mail splash screen

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Mail]

"NoSplash"=dword:00000001

Disable Windows Media Player AutoUpdates

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsMediaPlayer]

"DisableAutoUpdate"=dword:00000001

;faster browsing with IE

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD\Parameters]

"BufferMultiplier"=dword:00000400

;Disable automatic restart in the event of a blue screen

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl]

"AutoReboot"=dword:00000000

;Enable DVD in Media Player Value: Yes or No

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Player\Settings]

"EnableDVDUI"="Yes"

how about them services ?:) and gadgets if possible..

Gadgets support has been added in the AIO Integrator.

I will work on Services :)

EDIT: It may take a while to add all services to the list, please list the ones you think are important to add and they will be added first.

EDIT2: Services support added but not all services in the list and will be added over time, again if you want specific ones adding them please let me know.

Will do that now, to be honest i'm quite shocked i did not already add it :)

EDIT 1: Found the issue, when i re-writing my W7T to C# i forget to write that bit of code. Silly me.

EDIT 2: Sorted.

EDIT 3: Build 18 released with your requested changes.

There is Clear pagefile at shutdown which is already avaiable, but you can permanently disable it. I'm not sure if it can be doing using a registry tweak.

Disabling the pagefile is NOT recommended at all, even with 4GB RAM.

I'm going to try and do this, any info, links, etc..

I used: http://hubpages.com/hub/Windows_7_-_Quick_Launch

and I found these:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee681712(WS.10).aspx or

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975784

The one I used seems to be the same as the two from Microsoft except is has pictures to help those that get lost.

Back in December 2009 I donwnloaded Win Integrator Setup.msi from http://www.msfn.org/...win-integrator/ on the possible chance I could use it in the future.

Today I went back to that forum and the program has died - no updates in over a year and no word from the person that created it.

But there were features it incuded that I would like to see duplicated in the Win7 Toolkit; if possible.

For example, when the Win Integrator is started and a source is selected the user is presented with a string of tabs. The Remove tab provides a list of items that can be checked and thereby removed from the installation image. Next to that tab is one called Features that also presents a list of Windows features that can be turned off or on as part of the installation routine. To me, two useful features that should be included in the Win7 Toolkit.

Have you implemented progress bar in the windows 7 taskbar?

I was just using your msu to cab extractor to extract the new solor updates today and thought it would be a nice feature to have in that and other tool/s

I have managed to get it working, and should hopefully be done by the next version :)
