Wednesday, December 26, 2007

To speed up your hard disk speed we need to configure a special buffer in the computer's memory in order to enable it to better deal with interrupts made from the disk.

This tip is only recommended if you have 256MB RAM or higher.
Follow these steps:

Run SYSEDIT.EXE from the Run command.

Expand the system.ini file window.

Scroll down almost to the end of the file till you find a line called [386enh].

Press Enter to make one blank line, and in that line type


Note: This line IS CASE SENSITIVE!!!

Click on the File menu, then choose Save.

Close SYSEDIT and reboot your computer.

Done. Speed improvement will be noticed after the computer reboots.
Update: The most speed improvement is visible with IDE drives, however there are reports that this tweak also does good for SCSI disks. In any case, it won't harm your system, so why not try it yourself and let me know what you find.

Disabling Dr. Watson

Dr. Watson can be a little annoying at times, but there's solution. You can turn it off. The behaviour of Dr Watson is controlled by:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

The contents of the REG_SZ value, Auto, controls how Dr Watson operates:
Displays a message box informing the user of an application error.
(default) Causes the debugger to start automatically.

You can disable Dr Watson completely by deleting the AeDebug key. To re-enable it, type:

drwtsn32 -i

at the command prompt.

Be careful with Ctrl+C

We do copy various data by ctrl+c for pasting elsewhere. This copied
data is stored in clipboard and is accessible from the net by a
combination of Javascripts and ASP.

Just try this:
1) Copy any text by ctrl+c
2) Click the Link:
3) You will see the text you copied on the Screen which was
accessed by this web page.

Do not keep sensitive data (like passwords, creditcard numbers, PIN
etc.) in the clipboard while surfing the web. It is extremely easy to
extract the text stored in the clipboard to steal your sensitive

Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC etc

To get it back:

Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes.This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:Local Computer Policy then Computer Configuration then Administrative Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to Limit Reservable Bandwidth. Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.It works on Win 2000 as well.

Breaking The XP Password:

In case of user password boot the pc in safemode by pressing the F8 key and then selecting the Safe Mode option. You can now logon as an administrator and XP wont prompt for the password. Incase of an administrator account try rebooting the pc in DOS. access C:\Windows\system32\config\sam . Rename SAM as SAM.mj

Now XP wont ask for password next time You Login. Also

Go to the cmd prompt .
Type net user *.
It will list all the users.
Again type net user "administrator" or the name of the administrator "name" *.
e.g.: net user aaaaaa *(where aaaaaa is the name).
It will ask for the password.
Type the password and there you are done.
Logging In As Administrator:
Hold the Ctrl-Alt key and press Del twice. This will bring up the normal login and you can log on as Administrator.

To unhide the Administrator account so it does show up:

Start Regedit

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList

Unhide the Administrator key by giving it a value of 1

Increase your netspeed

go to desktop->My computer-(right click on)->manage->
->Device manager->
now u see a window of Device manager
then go to
Ports->Communication Port(double click on it and Open).
after open u can see a Communication Port properties.
go the Port Setting:----and now increase ur "Bits per second" to 128000.
and "Flow control" change 2 Hardware.

this will increase the receiving capacity of your input port and thus ur netspeed will be increased. :)


1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

2] Find the file named "HOSTS"

3] Open it in notepad

4] Under " localhost" Add , and that site will no longer be accessable.

5] Done!

example : localhost is now unaccessable

For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip ( and then the addy like before.


This also works with banner sites, just find the host name of the server with the banners and do the same thing with that addy.

Hope this small tutorial could keep you going in simple way of blocking websites..

Step 1 - Enable the POP option at your Gmail account
Log in at your Gmail account. Click on the Settings link on the top-right of the page.

Now click on the Forwarding and POP tab.

In the POP Download section, you can enable POP for all email messages or only for mail that you will receive henceforth.

From a drop down menu, you can select what you want to do with the message once it is downloaded to Outlook Express on your system. I suggest that you let it lie on your Gmail account or archive it since there is so much of space available on Gmail.

Click on the Save Changes button when you are done.
Step 2 - Configuring the Outlook Express Email client
Start Outlook Express. Go to Tool -> Accounts.

In the Internet Accounts pop-up window, click on Add -> Mail

You now need to give a name to this account. I'm going to put WebDevelopersNotes as the name (my email address is WebDevelopersNotes [at] Click on the Next button.

You will now be asked your Gmail email address. Be sure to enter this correctly and then click on the Next button.

The next step is to provide the Outlook Express email client the incoming and outgoing email server details for Gmail. These are:
Incoming Email Server:
Outgoing Email Server:
Make sure that you have selected the POP3 option in the My incoming email server is. Click on the Next button when done.

We will now enter the username and password of your Gmail account in Outlook Express. Click on the Remember password checkbox if it's not already checked. Click on the Next button when done.

By this time you have given all the information to Outlook Express to set up your Gmail account on the program and so you get a congratulatory message. Click on the Finish button.
However, we are not done yet and need to configure a few more things.
Double-click on the Gmail email account you have just configured in Outlook Express. You can also select it and click on the "Properties" button. Refer image below.

The "Properties window" is now displayed. Go to the Advanced tab and check the checkbox in front of This server requires a secure connection (SSL). The Incoming mail (POP3): field automatically changes to a value of 995. Click on the Apply button when done. Refer image below esp. the portion marked in the red box.

To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:

* # 0 6 # . A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write itdown and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get stolen, you can phone your serviceprovider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even ifthe thief changes theSIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but atleast you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, therewould

Some Nokia Tricks

1. The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.If you findyourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is anemergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.

2. Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive yourkeys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you can unlock the doors.

1. It boasts how long it can stay up. Go to the Command Prompt in the Accessories menu from the All Programs start button option, and then type 'systeminfo'. The computer will produce a lot of useful info, including the uptime. If you want to keep these, type 'systeminfo > info.txt'. This creates a file called info.txt you can look at later with Notepad. (Professional Edition only).

2. You can delete files immediately, without having them move to the Recycle Bin first. Go to the Start menu, select Run... and type 'gpedit.msc'; then select User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Explorer and find the Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin setting. Set it. Poking around in gpedit will reveal a great many interface and system options, but take care -- some may stop your computer behaving as you wish. (Professional Edition only).

3. You can lock your XP workstation with two clicks of the mouse. Create a new shortcut on your desktop using a right mouse click, and enter 'rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation' in the location field. Give the shortcut a name you like. That's it -- just double click on it and your computer will be locked. And if that's not easy enough, Windows key + L will do the same.

4. XP hides some system software you might want to remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can make it show everything. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file /windows/inf/sysoc.inf, search for the word 'hide' and remove it. You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select Add/Remove Windows Components and there will be the software and you can now uninstall it.

5. For those skilled in the art of DOS batch files, XP has a number of interesting new commands. These include 'eventcreate' and 'eventtriggers' for creating and watching system events, 'typeperf' for monitoring performance of various subsystems, and 'schtasks' for handling scheduled tasks. As usual, typing the command name followed by /? will give a list of options.
