remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can tickle it and make it
disgorge everything. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file
/windows/inf/ sysoc.inf, search for the word 'hide' and remove it. You
can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select
Add/Remove Windows Components and there will be your prey, exposed and

Creating Shutdown Icon or One Click Shutdown:

to your desktop. On the desktop, right-click and go to New, then to
Shortcut (in other words, create a new shortcut). You should now see a
pop-up window instructing you to enter a command line path.
Use this path in "Type Location of the Item"
the C: drive is not your local hard drive, then replace "C" with the
correct letter of the hard drive. Click the "Next" button. Name the
shortcut and click the "Finish" button. Now whenever you want to shut

Increasing Band-Width By 20%:

Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for their own purposes like Windows Updates and interrogating your PC etc

To get it back:

Click Start then Run and type " gpedit.msc" without quotes.This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:
Computer Policy then Computer Configuration then Administrative
Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to Limit
Reservable Bandwidth.
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth.
It will say it is not configured, but the truth is under the 'Explain'
tab I.e."By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20
percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use this setting
to override the default."
So the trick is to ENABLE reservable
bandwidth, then set it to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve
nothing, rather than the default 20%.It works on Win 2000 as well.
