i don´t know about that anymore, Camarade.

Do you think it would be a good idea?

@gugutz, sorry for the late answer
Having infs instead of reg files is handy when it comes to localization because you can use vars (and end-vars ?).
I think files should be kept as .reg and entries that needs localization should all be moved in the same inf (same, because there are not many of them).

:)

@gugutz, I´ve just updated the tweaks collection.

FYI: I get an error message and the print folder is emptied when setting print spooler service to your suggested manual setting. Maybe it's my particular printer driver but I have to set mine to automatic in order to add or display existing printer.

EDIT: seems others recommend keeping this service automatic too: http://www.theelderg...int_spooler.htm

Afaik, Automatic is the only working state : manual does not work correctly. For instance if you start Word and the spooler service is not started, it won't see the printer until you start the service AND restart word. :}

thanks, currently I do all current user tweaks in cmdlines and local machine in runonceex is this good enough or should current user be reimported 2nd time after 1st boot?

also the following tweak is wrong I think.

; Show Hidden Files and Folders

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"Hidden"=dword:00000000

should be

; Show Hidden Files and Folders

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"Hidden"=dword:00000001

many thanks.

@some1, i havent updated my site yet. i´m have been a little lazy about it, but i´m already working on it.

@lurk&jerk, you are right, i had trouble installing a network printer because of this service too. Next version it will be set to auto.

@Chrysalis, yeah, this shouldnt be like that. Gonna fix that as soon as i get home.

thanks to all.

Calculator is set in win.ini afaik.

Or maybe too. But monitoring the register, I had nothing changed and in my µA install, I change win.ini and it works.

What does this service do?

; Indexing Service
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CiSvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004

and this?

; Windows Audio Service
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AudioSrv]
"Start"=dword:00000002

and this?
; Windows Time Service

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time]
"Start"=dword:00000004

Does this service disable all removeable storage support like USB flash drives?

; Removable Storage Service
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtmsSvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004

@Sgt_Strider:
Indexing: Speeds up searching by indexing files, see this link.

Windows Audio: Provides and controls all audio support for Windows, see this one.

Windows Time: Syncronizes the system time with a timeserver.

Removable Storage: No it doesn't, may however affect tape drives or others.



Read some more on the subject of services for example here, or search.

No offence, but you really need to start searching for the info before asking in the forums.

Just wanted you to know that about half way threw the other software reg file you switch from english to portugese or spanish. I'm sure i can translate it back so no big problem for me however i thought you'd might like to know.

Just an observation:

In the readme, it says that Windows Management Instrumentation Driver Extension is one of the vital services that should be set to automatic, or at worst, manual. In my experience, that service is not only not vital, it's completely useless and can be safely disabled.

I've left it disabled on (at least) 500 systems over the years that ranged from domain/web/file/print servers to all types of workstations. Never had anything even try to access it, much less any problems from disabling it. Since it doesn't seem to frivolously start, leaving it on manual is probably safer than disabling it, but I'm somewhat of a control freak, so I just really like seeing all that MS crap with "Disabled" next to it and know, at least on some level, *I* still control my box, not Microsoft. :)

I've seen it once started on Win2000 when a driver was missing. What does it REALLY do, I don't know.

Great collection! :lol:
I'm looking inside the files to use the reg tweaks I want

Are you sure about deleting Special Accounts? I was told they are needed
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts)


HelpAssistant--------->Remote Assistance
IUSR_----------------->IIS
IWAM_----------------->IIS
NetShowServices----->Windows Media server
SQLAgentCmdExec--->SQL Server?
TsInternetUser-------->Terminal Services
VUSR_----------------->Visual Studio Analyzer
