  1. I'm using 2007 for the moment but I'm thinking of switching to 2010 in the near future (perhaps after SP1 RTM is out)...
  2. Hi. I mean that when I press F1 (or click in the right upper corner on '?') to do/show nothing (instead of Help content or a window saying to insert the MS Office DVD). Thank you for any suggestion. Later edit: It would help also if somene will show me how to remove help files...
  3. Ok, Task Manager
  4. Thank you. Ok, but what should I look for? Faster read, faster write or something else..? 2 screenshots:
  5. I use Windows 7 x86 for quite some time. I noticed one thing: sometimes is just starting to access the HDD for minutes, slowing down other disk operations. It's not a virus. It's not a hardware problem. I deactivated Restore, Superfetch, Indexing, Windows defender (the scheduled scan) and Scheduled defragmentation. I installed clean, without other programs. Still no change... On the same computer I have another partition with Windows XP x86. Each primary partition is hidden when the computer is booting from the other one. In Windows XP I don't have this problem, even with installed programs. I saw it happening on other computers too. In Vista is worst... Does anybody has an idea which service/process from Windows 7 is doing this, why and how to stop it (safely)...?
  6. Yes, you're right And thank you. Later edit: I tested the programs and I don't see how to set the cache min/max values for every drive. NtCacheSetter sets min and max value but not for each drive. Anyway I tried some values but I didn't see a change in what Task Manager reports. SetSystemFileCacheSize is not for Windows XP. FileCacheTest is for testing.
  7. Thank you But I wanna know also how to change the size of the buffer, no just enabling/disabling it.. And could someone change the word "buufer" from the topic's title into "buffer"? I can't change anymore... Thank you.
  8. Hi. I wanna change the buffer size of the drives on my computer. For example I wanna increase it for a HDD or USB key, or to set it 0 for a ramdrive... Is it possible? And if it is, how...? Thank you for any help. Best regards, John
  9. Seems to work... Thank you.
  10. Thank you but I dont need a tutorial about that, I already know how to do it. The problem is not that I don't know how to use rt7lite's interface but the fact that these registry settings can't be added automatically because Windows 7 x64 doesn't allow that. I asked for a solution, preferebly with Rt7Lite; but if there isn't a solution with Rt7Lite I would accept a solution without.
  11. Hi. I have Windows 7 x64 SP1. I used rt7lite to make some changes in Windows 7 DVD. Among them is this one (changing Windows update settings): Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\ Auto Update] "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000000 "AUOptions"=dword:00000002 "IncludeRecommendedUpdates"=dword:00000000 It is taken from this topic: Is working fine on x86 but not on x64, if I try to add the reg file or add them with reg.exe; if I change the registry manually it works. I used Unattended section >> RunOnce: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /f /v "ElevateNonAdmins" /t REG_DWORD /d "0x00000000" REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /f /v "AUOptions" /t REG_DWORD /d "0x00000002" REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /f /v "IncludeRecommendedUpdates" /t REG_DWORD /d "0x00000000" I think the problem is that these settings are written only in x86 registers, not in both x86 and x64. How can I solve this...? Thank you in advance for any help. Best regards, John
  12. If you meant "forum" is kinda dead. I haven't seen the author on forum since last year. Plus Cosmin3 asked the same question there and didn't get a good answer. If you meant "topic", it's right here as sticky so I don't think it's a big deal if I asked in the same "neighborhood". But ok, I will ask there... Thanks anyway.
  13. Ok, I understand, but how do I integrate that reg file into Windows 7 DVD so it would change Windows Update settings..? Preferably using Rt7lite...
  14. Thank you. I tried installing in VirtualBox. The Windows Update settings were unchanged (still default). But when I started regedit I noticed that HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node is visible. If I try importing your reg file it goes into the node and does change Windows Update settings. If I manually change outside the node then it changes settings. So the question is: how do I "convince" regedit.exe and reg.exe to add/modify/delete registry entries (automatically) outside the node and not in it...?
