    for the right place it's HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion-> Explorer -> -> Remote Computer -> Name Space......

    U missed the CurrentVersion bit out

    One thing life has taught me: "Love" Fades Fast....
    It's sad and hurts when you realize someone who used to be your other half is now gone, and you're left feeling half empty. I wish it had never happened to us - but to my "love" that faded somewhere down the road of life.. I still got nothing but love for you.. You're in my heart and on my mind. But gone..Forever.A memory 03/28/2002 12:08:17 AM

    Goto Control Panel & set it back to Classic View
    Open Admin Tools
    Open Local Security Policy
    Expand the Local Policies tab
    Select the User Rights Assignments
    On the right-hand side find the key "Deny access to this computer from the network"...if guest is in here then remove it
    Now find "Access this computer from the network" key & add Guest in here...if Everyone isn't in here then add it too.

    when you install XP it doesn't enable the guest account for security reasons...sometimes even when you do enable this it still happens...


    Now for the faster shutdown which has worked every time that ive seen...

    Open up REGEDIT and goto "HKCURRENTUSER\Control Panel\Desktop\" and set the key "HungAppTimeout" to 5000(which is default) and make "WaitToKillAppTimeout"
    4000 (20000 is default).

    Also, go to "HKLOCALMACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\" and set the key "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" to 4000 too. That should make the shutdown complete in 4 secs.

    Hope this all works!!! :thumb: :)


    Edit: here is another tweak that i thought waz highly necessary...if you are trying to access another computer thru the network & it takes forever to load their files then this is what you need to do! open up regedit & goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Explorer -> -> Remote Computer -> Name Space...
    Remove the {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} folder...

    also another one...if you have QoS Packet Scheduler enabled then goto Run type in gpedit.msc....now expand the "local computer policy" branch...expand the "administrative templates" branch in the Computer Configuration branch...expand the "network branch"..select the QoS Packet Scheduler branch...now in the right window double click the limit reservable bandwidth key...Enable this & change where it says Bandwidth limit % from 20 to 0...XP seems to want to reserve 20% of the bandwidth for itself...so if you try & download a big file then it'll download faster a lot faster now & make your computer gernerally faster...

    my system won't shutdown because i haven't got ACPI installed (im assuming because i didn't install it at setup) which (only a theory, nothing can prove it unless i do a few reinstalls) that when ACPI isn't installed you don't have the APM tab in Power Options in control panel...so if you have APM tab in Power Options found in control panel, try enabling that and give it a go...

    tell me how all of these go :) :thumb:
    btw, keep on checkin this thread for more tweaks...


    Edited 15th of April, added power off fix...

    When I try to change the registry to make the shutdown time faster, as in the tip given here:

    "Open up REGEDIT and goto "HKCURRENTUSER\Control Panel\Desktop\" and set the key "HungAppTimeout" to 5000(which is default) and make "WaitToKillAppTimeout"
    4000 (20000 is default).

    Also, go to "HKLOCALMACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\" and set the key "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" to 4000 too."

    I can't change the registry values because my registry does not have HungAppTimeout or WaitToKillAppTimeout in HKCURRENTUSER\Control Panel\Desktop\

    I did find them both in HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

    Does anybody know if that will work as well? Or, since I don't have those two values in HKEY_LOCALMACHINE, will my shutdown time be fast regardless, since there is no value of 20000?

    Thx for the help!

    Hello, first
    Although my rating writes "newbie" on this board, I'm no PC newbie at all :devil:

    Now for the challenge: since I'm a tweaker since W3.1, I couldn't help tweaking XP via various proggies or manu propria, with no problem at all until recently, when I stumbled into something peculiar, totally new to me

    Brief, I seem to have lost the "stand by" button (It is grayed out now; inactive), along with the shut down and sleep function keys on the keyboard

    Note that this happened after a HD format & clean install. They were not the first ones, but just now this happened. I tried another clean install, with the same result... Have you any clue about what could've caused this?

    Thanks in advance! : peace2: :cheers:
    LS

    @ edit: My PC is p3/800, 128 MB RAM, no UPS, and same hardware configuration in last 2 years
    One is to see, another to look

    what's "QoS Packet Scheduler " and how do I know if I've got it?

    (I ask because my boot up is quick, but my shut-down is slow)

    thanks,

    Sunshine

    go to start-->control panel-->network connections
    Right click on the icon of your local area network. Chose properties.
    In the next wondows that pops up, you will see QoS packet scheduler mentioned (if you have got it installed ofcourse).

    about wat it is...look for dagger's explanation of packet scheduler on page 2 of this thread. its a good one!
