XP Pro or Home which is right for you?

Which edition of XP is right for you?

Microsoft Windows XP Pro contains all the features of the Home Edition, plus several more for business and advanced users. To determine if Pro is right for you, consider these points:

  1. Do you want to remotely access your computer to work on all your data and applications whilst away from your PC?
  2. Do you connect to a large PC network?
  3. Do you need to protect sensitive files?
  4. Do you need the ability to completely restore your system in the event of catastrophic failure?
  5. Would you consider yourself a 'power user'?

All the above are features of the Pro edition. Only Pro has the Remote Desktop feature, only Pro has Domains for network management, and only Pro uses Encrypting File System (EFS) for added security and has more robust options for backup and restore.

How To Stop Runtime Errors Appearing in IE


When you are surfing the web using IE, are you occasionally confronted with the following error?

'A Runtime Error has occured. Do you wish to Debug?'

Of course you can click 'No' and continue, but this can become tiresome. To prevent this message from displaying, follow these steps from within Internet Explorer.

How to Stop:

  1. Goto Start > Control Panel > Internet Options.
  2. Click Advanced tab and put a tick by the disable script debugging option.
  3. Click the Apply button and then OK to close the dialogue box.

These errors are often caused by Internet explorer's cache becoming defective. You can clear out this cache from within Internet Options On the General tab, click on Delete files. If that doesn't help, delete all the files in the folder Temporary Internet Files manually. You can usually find this folder at: C:\Windows\Temp\Temporary Internet Files.

How To System File Checker

The System File Checker tool gives you the ability to scan all of the protected files to verify their versions. The System File Checker tool also checks and repopulates the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dllcache folder. If the Dllcache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use either the sfc /scanonce or sfc /scanboot command to repair the contents of the folder. You must be logged on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker. The average user will only be concerned with first two switches.

How to open SFC Syntax:
Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command prompt and type SFC followed by one or more of the following switches:

  1. The /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command also repopulates the DLLCache folder with the most recent versions of protected files. This requires access to the Windows installation source files and also the installed Service Pack files. You are usually prompted for the location of these files during the scan operation.
  2. The /scanonce command scans all protected system files once. This command requires access to the Windows installation source files.
  3. The /scanboot command scans all protected system files every time that you start your computer. This command requires access to the Windows installation source files.
  4. The /cancel command cancels all pending scans of protected system files.
  5. The /enable command enables WFP for normal operation.
  6. The /purgecache command purges the file cache and scans all of the protected system files immediately. This command requires access to the Windows installation source files. This command is required after you run the /cachesize=x command.
  7. The /cachesize=x command sets the file cache size in megabytes (MB). This command will require a reboot followed by a /purgecache command to adjust the size of the on-disk cache.
  8. The /quiet command replaces all incorrect file versions without prompting the user.
  9. For XP and Windows 2003 systems only:The /revert command returns scan to the default setting (Note: do not scan protected files when you start the computer). The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command would be equivalent to the /Enable switch in Windows 2K.

How To Uninstall Programs manually if not appearing in Add/Remove

It sometimes happens that you want to remove an application but it doesn't appear in the normal Add/Remove listing.
When you run across one of these situations the items listed below will help in getting rid of the application. Be aware that these steps may not remove everything associated with the application and can impact other applications on the computer. Have a backup or restore point and use caution.

Open task manager and check that none of the processes for the application are running (and if they are end them)

Find the directory for the application and delete all the files in the directory. Delete the directory.

Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE and find the folder for the application. Delete the folder.

Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE and find the folder for the application. Delete the folder.

To remove the application entry from Add/Remove Programs (if present) open regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion\Uninstall and find the folder for the application. Delete the folder.

Some applications have Services attached to them. If this is the case, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services, locate and delete the service.

In Windows Explorer, navigate to the individual user settings and delete program references. Common places to check would be:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs and delete relevant

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and delete
relevant entries.

C:\Documents and Settings\%YourUserID%\Start Menu\Programs and delete
relevant entries. [Do this for each User ID listed]

C:\Documents and Settings\%YourUserID%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and
delete relevant entries. [Do this for each User ID listed]

If no entries were found in the previous step and the application launches automatically, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows and delete the entry.

How To Export a registry key to a 'Hive File'

Caution when using any Registry hacks as incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making any changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on your computer.

Follow below step to back up your valued data:

  1. Open Registry Editor
  2. Select the key you want to save as a file
  3. On the file menu, click 'Export'
  4. In the Export Registry File dialogue box. in Save in, click the drive, folder or network computer and folder where you want to save the hive.
  5. In File name, enter a name for the hive
  6. In Save as type, click Registry Hive Files. Click save.

How To Adjust Time Outs

The two most important things to know about Registry Editor are that it copies your changes immediately into the registry and that it has no Undo Command. The Registry Editor doesn't wait for you to issue a File, Save command it has no such command before making changes permanent. And after you have altered some bit of registry data, the former data is gone forever, unless you remember it and restore it yourself.Registry Editor is therefore a tool to be used sparingly and soberly and not to be left open when not in use.

There are a few things related to shutting down your system faster located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop:

  1. AutoEndTasks (set to 1) will automatically kill hung up programs for you.
  2. The next one is HungAppTimeout (set it to 1000).
    NOTE: Be careful when you adjust this setting: If you use a program that runs slowly on XP, the OS might falsely determine that it has hung. In such a case, you can increase the HungAppTimeout value by increments of 1000 until the false "hung" detections stop.
  3. Next up is WaitToKillAppTimeout. Which should be set to 4000 (default is 20000).
  4. Since we have the programs being killed after a certain amount of time you will also want to do the same for services. Change the WaitToKillServiceTimeout to 4000 as well.
  5. Always backup the Registry before making any changes

How to Changing Drive Letters


Change Drive Letters in Windows XP

When you add drives to your computer, such as an extra hard drive, a CD drive, or a storage device that corresponds to a drive, Windows automatically assigns letters to the drives. However, this assignment might not suit your system; for example, you might have mapped a network drive to the same letter that Windows assigns to a new drive. When you want to change drive letters, follow these steps:

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. It will appear a computer management box like below.

2. Under Computer Management, click Disk Management. In the right pane, you'll see your drives listed. CD-ROM drives are listed at the bottom of the pane.

3. Right-click the drive or device you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.

4. Click Change

5. Click Assign the following drive letter

6. Click the drive letter you want to assign and then click OK.


You will not be able to change the boot or system drive letter in this manner. Many MS-DOS-based and Windows-based programs make references to a specific drive letter (for example, environment variables). If you modify the drive letter, these programs may not function correctly.

How To Defragment Your Hard Drive

Turn off Hibernation Feature before you use Disk Defragmenter


If you use the Windows XP's Hibernation feature on your laptop or PC, you may want to delete the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk before defragmenting. When you put your computer in hibernation, Windows XP writes all memory content to the Hiberfil.sys file before shutting down the system. Then, when you turn your computer back on, the OS uses the Hiberfil.sys file to put everything back into memory, and the computer resumes where it left off. However, Windows XP leaves the Hiberfil.sys file on the hard disk, even though it's no longer needed.

The Hiberfil.sys file, which can be very large, is a special system file that Disk Defragmenter cannot defragment. Therefore, the presence of the Hiberfil.sys file will prevent Disk Defragmenter from performing a thorough defragmenting operation.

Follow these steps to remove the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk:
1. Goto Start > Control Panel and double-click Power Options.

2. Select the Hibernate tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box.

3. Clear the Enable Hibernation check box and click OK.


As soon as you clear the check box, Windows XP automatically deletes the Hiberfil.sys file from the hard disk. Once you complete the defrag operation, you can re-enable the Hibernation feature.
