This thread was inspired by the one started by Problemchyld but I thought it prudent to start another as I plan to maintain the pack and provide regular updates.
[See below for the change log]
Here is the list of tweaks contained in the attachment:
ADV_IE.REG ---- The 'Advanced Internet Options' tweak from Auto-Patcher for Windows 98SE. Adds many more options to the Advanced Internet Options tab.
ADV_WE.REG ---- The 'Advanced Windows Explorer Options' tweak from Auto-Patcher. Adds many more options to 'Folder Options' in Windows Explorer.
AR_DIS.reg ---- Disable CD autorun
AR_ENA.reg ---- Enable CD autorun
COPYMOVE.reg -- adds Copy to... and Move to... menus to explorer shell
DEL_MSN.reg --- deletes the MSN icon from the desktop after first boot to desktop (useful for unattended boot CDs)
DMA_ON.INF ---- The 'Turn on DMA access to hard disks and CD/DVD drives' tweak from Auto-Patcher. It turns on DMA access for hard drives and for all future drive additions.
DOSHERE.INF --- adds 'Command Prompt Here' to Right-Click Menu when clicking on a folder

Other files inside the pack:
