Making XP better (Part 1)
 
  1. You may be interested to know wat ur system does while booting windows(behind that boot screen). (only in Xp and above)
    Code:

    Step 1: start->run and type "msconfig"
    Step 2: go to boot.ini tab
    Step 3: Check the /SOS option
    Step 4: Reboot

    Now u can see wat the operating system is doing in the background. If u can't understand here is a brief explanation.
    First it will load all the drivers necessary to make the OS work.
    Then it will check all the volumes,whether a checkdisk is needed or not. If the volume is not clean, then it executes checkdisk.
  2. To display a custom message at logon
    Code:

    Step 1: start->run and type gpedit.msc
    Step 2: In that navigate to Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->Security Options
    Step 3: Look for a value "Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on"
    Step 4: Double click that and type wat ever message u wish to display.
    Step 5: If u want to give a title for tat message,Look for a value "Interactive logon: Message title for users attempting to log on". Doblue click that and enter the title for that window.
    Step 6: either log off or reboot.

  3. Sometimes, due to viruses U can't find the Help option in the start menu.
    There are many ways to make it work, But the easiest way is go to run and type
    Code:

    hcp://
    help window will appear, then u can search the thing u need. If run option is also disabled go to any browser and type the same in the URL.
