About Cyborg_Dell

  1. To BAH,
  2. OK, I know clippit jokes are a bit old, but I couldn't resist submitting this one... :Elaugh
  3. What you will have to do if you want Win 98, is format your HD, then install Win 98, then partition your HD, then install XP on the new partition..... Remember to back up your stuff....
  4. Biomechanical Robotic Entity Normally for Destruction and Accurate Nullification.... A bit long winded, but the reason I call myself Cyborg_Dell is that my right arm, leg, and hip are implanted with pins made from a titanium alloy, and that's also why I have Wolverine as my Avatar..... How weird is that ??
  5. I hope this helps.... ht*p:// ACPI Information from Microsoft...[/color:d2b9826e30] Please!! no active links, only to your own site or internal pages on the server,thnx cyborg :eek: [/size:d2b9826e30] Sorry bout that.....ooops
  6. From what I can see in your BOOT.INI, XP has taken your system by the balls and squeezing hard whispers "BOOT ME NOW !!"...... Ah no, seriously, it looks to me that even though you haven't performed an upgrade, XP thinks you have, by fast detecting your previous OS and booting from there, since both your target drives are set to C:. Can you see the second partition in Windows ?? That might help.....
  7. Create the following series of keys and values in the registry at [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID] or [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClassesCLSID]. The GUID, globally unique identifier, can be a random number, in this example "FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345" is used. See this article for more GUID examples. 1. Create a new key called [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSID{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}] and set (Default) to equal the name of the folder e.g. "My Folder". 2. Create a new sub-key under the main key called "DefaultIcon" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES...ABCD1DE12345}DefaultIcon]) and set (Default) to equal the filename for the icon you want to display e.g. "c:windowsmyicon.ico". 3. Create a new sub-key under the main key called "InProcServer32" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES...ABCD1DE12345}InProcServer32]) and set (Default) to equal "shell32.dll", also create a new String value called "ThreadingModel" and set it to "Apartment". 4. Create a set of sub-keys starting at the main key "ShellOpen My MenuCommand" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES...ABCD1DE12345}ShellOpen My FolderCommand]) and set (Default) to equal the command to execute when clicked, in this case explorer, e.g. "explorer /root,c:MyFolder". Change "Open My Folder" to command to display and "c:MyFolder" to the directory you want to use. 5. Create a set of sub-keys starting at the main key "ShellExPropertySheetHandlers{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES...ABCD1DE12345}ShellExPropertySheetHandlers{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}]) 6. Create a new sub-key under the main key called "ShellFolder" (i.e. [HKEY_CLASSES...ABCD1DE12345}ShellFolder]) and create a new Binary value called "Attributes" and set it to "00 00 00 00". 7. To place the folder (which is now a system folder) on the desktop add the following key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion ExplorerDesktopNameSpace{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}] 8. To also place it in My Computer create this key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion ExplorerMyComputerNameSpace{FD4DF9E0-E3DE-11CE-BFCF-ABCD1DE12345}] Now the folder cannot be deleted from the desktop or My Computer, nor can it be renamed other than removing the CLSID and the entries under NAMESPACE. This beats TweakUI's "Remove Shortcut Arrows" any day....
  8. I think you could set up a rule to do this, ie: no downloading of duplicate items [/color:fc91312981]
