      Here is a simple way to increase your internet speed by increasing the bandwidth upto 20% which is occupied by the computer for waste. The speed will increase by 20 kbps for sure

      Increase Your Internet Bandwidth - FOR XP USERS ONLY


      Here's a simple little thing you can do to increase your bandwidth by at least 20%.

      Ok here we go...

      1.) log on as Administrator.

      2.) start - run - type gpedit.msc

      3.) expand "local computer policy"

      4.) then expand "administrative templates"

      5.) then expand "network branch"

      6.) Highlight the "QoS Packet Scheduler"

      7.) on right window double click "limit reservable bandwidth"

      8.) on setting tab check the "enabled"

      9.) change "Bandwidth limit %" to 0

      You're done.It would be a good idea to reboot after this.

      Decrease Firefox Load Time:

      Most of us are having problems regarding the load time of Firefox in comparison to the other Browsers. I am suggesting a software called Firefox Preloader. Firefox Preloader is a utility that is designed to load parts of Mozilla Firefox into memory before it is used to improve the its startup time.
      Download: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffpreloader/
      It is recommended that you NOT use the "File->Exit" command to close Firefox or it's windows unless you are installing new extensions or themes. This will unload Firefox and defeat the purpose of this program. Firefox can be closed via 'File->Close' or the X button on the windows' title bar

      Enhance the Firefox functioning by installing Firetune 1.xx

      Wait and watch. If you common tasks have gone (the boxes in each folder then go again there and check »» USE COMMON TASKS IN FOLDER.

      Tired of MSN messenger, even after disabling it, but do not want to remove it. Simply go to C:\Program Files and Rename Messenger folder to Died Messenger. And if you use outlook express, It(messenger) will not start untill yo invoke it to stat.

      5)Do Not Highlight Newly Installed Programs
      Tired of that annoying little window that pops up to tell you that new software is installed? If it gets in the way when you’re logging off, turn it off completely. To do this:
      Click Start, right-click at the top of the Start menu where your name is displayed, and then click Properties.
      In the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box, on the Start Menu tab, click Customize.
      Click the Advanced tab, and then clear the Highlight newly installed programs check box.
      Click OK, and then click OK again.

      6)Turn Off Automatic Updating.
      Some people might have thought that after using pirated XP copy and Connecting to the INTERNET their copy becomes some slower. So just turn off Live Update.
      How to Turn Off Automatic Updates?
      Click Start , click Control Panel , and then double-click System.
      Click the Automatic Updates tab, and then click Turn off automatic updating. I want to update my computer manually.

      7)Using the Ultimate Configuration Tool (Professional Edition Only)
      One of the most full featured Windows XP configuration tools available is hidden right there in your system, but most people don't even know it exists. It's called the Local Group Policy Editor, or gpedit for short. It just like old Poledit.exe.
      To start this editor:
      Select Start and then Run, then type the following:
      After you hit Enter, you'll be greeted by gpedit, which lets you modify almost every feature in Windows XP without having to go to regedit.

      8)Login in Adminsitrator
      There is a security hole in windows XP which is very important to all the admins of winXP.Its very easy to bypass the windows XP Admin logon window. When u started yr computer , u got a message something like that:
      Admin or (whatever u make a account!!!)
      Password: ..... XXX XXXX.........
      some people think that its impossible to break through this, but through this article u can make it easy to break this cripy.
      In order to break the Windows XP admin logon , you simply boot yr computer through Windows 2000 CD and boot up a windows XP box and start windows 2000 recivery Console, its a troubleshooting program.
      Windows XP then allows us to operate victim's computer as an Administrator without a admin password, even if the Administrator account has a strong password. You can also operate other user accounts that may be present on, even if those
      accounts have passwords. Finally u can do anything u want on the victim's computer, copy/delete the files whatever u want . :)))

      9)Remove program from your desktop
      Whenever you have to remove any software/package/program you have to go to control panel then add/remove programe and for that either go to my computer or start menu. My way is the sleekest one. All you have to do is make a new shortcut on ur desktop and set its target to "control.exe appwiz.cpl" there id space between control.exe and appwiz.cpl and write without quotes. this simply would launch Addremove programs wizard.

      10)Shutdown Button on Desktop
      Right click on ur Desktop and create new Shortcut and type “C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Shutdown.exe –s†without quotes in the popup box which will appear asking for a path of shortcut . Now when u will double click this shortcut it will give u shutdown message and ur computer will shutdown after some seconds. U can customize ur shutdown button with same icon which original shutdown have Just go to the properties of ur shortcut and click change icon tab select any icon u like and click apply.
      Similarly u can also put restart button on ur desktop just replace –s in above line by –r
      If u don’t want shutdown button on ur desktop u can the go to start >run and type
      Shutdown –s or –r they will do the same job. If someone tries to shutdown u remotely on the net then u can stop shutdown process but typing shutdown –a in Run.
      Shutdown –s = Shutdown & restart
      Shutdown –r = Restart
      Shutdown –a = To abort shutdown

      11)Remove Hibernation File
      If you do not use hibernation, make sure you do not have it enabled, which reserves disk space equal to your RAM. If you have a hidden file on the root directory of your C-drive called hiberfil.sys, hibernation is enabled. To remove that file:
      Go to Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, Hibernate tab, and uncheck the Enable hibernation box.

      12)Free some disk space with XP and some fast.
      If you have NTFS partistions then you should stop the indexing service. This service slows your navigation of files. Whenever you click the file the XP adds that to its database for quick search. To turn it off select your all hard disks. Then right click and go to properties. And uncheck "Allow indexing service check Box".

      13)Turn Off AND On System Restore.
      The system Restore option is useful for some people but for most people its a sheer wastage of RAM and HDD. So according to me it should be turned off. To Change system restore settings Press Win Key + Pause/Break Key (near num lock). Go to System Restore. and change your settings.

      14)Prevent XP from Unauthorised Access
      This is the best way to prevent un authorised access while connected to the internet. Go to my computer properties, and select Remote tab. Uncheck Both the Check Boxes. This help you to prevent your computer from unauthorized access, while connected to the net.

      15)Change Drive Letters in Windows XP
      When you add drives to your computer, such as an extra hard drive, a CD drive, or a storage device that corresponds to a drive, Windows automatically assigns letters to the drives. However, this assignment might not suit your system; for example, you might have mapped a network drive to the same letter that Windows assigns to a new drive. When you want to change drive letters, follow these steps:
      Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
      Under Computer Management, click Disk Management. In the right pane, you’ll see your drives listed. CD-ROM drives are listed at the bottom of the pane.
      Right-click the drive or device you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
      Click Change, click Assign the following drive letter, click the drive letter you want to assign, and then click OK.

      16)Run safely any of downloaded EXE's.
      When ever you download or copy any EXE, do not execute it straight first scan it, and then right click that exe and select Run as and then Select the current user option alongwith, protection option. This is usefull in some cases.

      17)Change the Default Opening Folder in Windows Explorer
      By default, Windows Explorer opens showing the My Do***ents folder. To change the default setting so that all top–level drives and folders are shown, follow these steps:
      Click Start > Programs > Accessories, then right–click Windows Explorer, and click Properties.
      Under Target field, which reads %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe, add to make the line read:
      %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C:\
      Click OK.{Extracts by Mr.xp}

      1 Identify a 16-bit Program
      Use Windows Explorer to open the folder that contains the program's executable (.exe) file. Right-click the .exe file, and then click Properties. A 16-bit program does not have a Version tab in this dialog box. {Extracts by Mr.xp}

      19)Use the Desktop Cleanup Wizard in Windows XP
      To start the Desktop Cleanup Wizard:
      Click Start , and then click Control Panel.
      In Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes under Pick a category.
      Under or pick a Control Panel icon , click Display. The Display Properties dialog box is displayed.

      In the Welcome to the Desktop Cleanup Wizard dialog box, click Next. In the Shortcuts dialog box, a list of shortcuts are displayed in the Shortcut to Clean Up list. The shortcuts that you click are removed from the desktop and placed in the Unused Desktop Shortcuts folder on the Windows desktop.
      If you do not want a shortcut to be removed from the desktop, click to clear the check box for that shortcut, and then click Next when you are finished.In the Completing the Desktop Cleanup Wizard dialog box, view the items in the Shortcuts box to confirm that you want them removed from the desktop, and then click Finish.
