TweakUI for Windows XP

To begin with tweaking, I start with TweakUI. It lets you change some of the hidden settings in Windows XP.

Tweak UI Version 2.10 requires Windows XP Service Pack 1 or above / Windows Server 2003. If you have a Windows XP system without any Service Packs installed, download Version 2.00.

The Windows shell-development team did some extra programming and put together a set of tools called Power Toys. If you’re a power user, go ahead and try them out, but be forewarned that Power Toys aren’t supported by Microsoft because they’re not part of Windows. This group of “toys” lets you adjust your Windows user interface, including menu speed, window animation, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Version 2.1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.

Cannot change Homepage

Many time due to spywares or malwares you cannot change the Internet Explorer homepage. Even after running Anti-spyware like Spybot its not working. In such cases use the following trick to change it.

 In Regedit, navigate to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel
In the right-hand pane, right-click the “HomePage” value, then select Modify. Change it to: 00 00 00 00

Also change either or these to zero 0 instead of 1 if present:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] – DWORD “NoSetHomePage”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions] – DWORD “NoSetHomePage”=dword:00000001

If you don’t have this key, browse to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

and in the right hand pane, double click “Local Page” and set equal to “C:\WINDOWS\System\blank.htm” (no quotes) which will hopefully set your Home Page to blank and then allow you to subsequently modify it using Internet Options.

I’m sure this will solve the problem.

Warning:
Editing Registry may cause OS failure. Edit registry only when you are sure of it. Make a backup of registry before editing.

Tips for Windows XP

Windows. For computers this is means for user interaction and to use the power of computing. Though many hate MS Windows for the virus infections, trojans and malwares but its still the best OS. And the version XP is so far the best MS OS.

In order to run windows properly you require some tweaking. Some tips increase performance and productivity.  The dedicated “Windows Tips” section is for this. It will cover such things and all the problems I solve in many of the forums I visit. They will be posted here.
