How To: Make Your Windows Vista’s Admin Account Acts Like in XP, Always in Full Control

We know UAC(User Account Control) feature in Windows Vista, and we all know how to disable UAC and this is not the purpose of this article, because even after you Disable UAC in Windows Vista, you’ll have other prompts about folder/file permissions errors sometimes (It occurs in strange, unexpected occasions, like deleting an empty folder for a program left by the uninstaller), or you’ll need to right click and select “Run as Administrator” for most applications to work/install correctly.

That’s because Microsoft made the Windows Vista administrators accounts (in local administrators group) run as standard users, unless we give permissions for every and each administrative tasks, with a little difference when UAC(User Account Control) is turned on/off.

Remember that cute “Administrator” account you see when you login to Windows Vista in safe mode? That’s the built-in administrator account that’s installed by default, and disabled by default too, after a little digging-in I made this tutorial that will let you enable and use this account in normal mode, and with a little other tweak, enjoying an Windows XP like administrator experience, while UAC is left ON (or off, it doesn’t matter), but with no prompts or right clicks.

For Windows Vista Ultimate /Business/ Enterprise versions :

* Click on Windows Vista Start, and type in “secpol.msc” in the search area and click Enter. (You may receive a prompt from UAC,(User Account Control) approve/login and proceed)
* In the left list, choose “Local Policies“, then “Security Options“
* Set “Accounts: Administrator account status” to Enabled.
* Set “User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account” to Disabled.

For Windows Vista Home Basic / Home Premium versions:

* Click on Windows Vista Start, and type in “cmd” in the search area, right click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run as Administrator” option from the opened context menu.
* In the opened elevated command prompt type in “net users Administrator /active:yes” (Note the capital “A” in Administrator) and press Enter, you will get a confirmation as “The command completed successfully”.
* Click on Windows Vista Start again, and type in “regedit” in the search area and click Enter to open the Windows Vista registry editor.
* Then navigate to the following Windows Vista registry key:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Policies\\System]
* Double click on “FilterAdministratorToken” and set it to “0“
* Now log off your Windows Vista computer to take effect and login to Administrator account.

Now you are the master of your Windows Vista domain! I recommend if you’re going to use this method is to apply it as soon as you do a fresh install of Windows Vista, so you can simply delete whatever administrator you created in the setup process, and make this one the “real” administrator for your PC, also you can rename this new admin account or change its password like any other account from “User Accounts” in the Control Panel.

How To: Create Shortcuts in Windows Mobile

Shortcuts are small files containing the location of another file, or the command line required to launch an application in Microsoft Windows operating systems. They are commonly placed within the Windows Start Menu as a convenient way to access common functions of your Windows Mobile device. By creating and organizing your own shortcuts you can customize the features you have quick access to on your Windows mobile device.

Creating a Shortcut in Windows Mobile

You can create shortcuts directly on the Windows Mobile Device by using the built in File Explorer application. In order to create a shortcut in Windows Mobile, first navigate to the file you want a shortcut for and tap and hold the stylus over the file to display a context sensitive popup menu. From the menu select the “Copy” option.

Now navigate to the location where you want to place the shortcut and tap and hold the stylus over a blank area (such as after the last file in the directory listing). This displays a similar context sensitive popup menu from which you can select a “Paste Shortcut” option.


A shortcut to the file will be created. By default the newly created shortcut will have the name “Shortcut to TOMSTRICKS” where TOMSTRICKS was the original file name. By using the standard file rename functionality you can rename the shortcut to a more suitable name.

Uses of Windows Mobile Shortcuts

Shortcuts are used within the Windows Mobile operating system for a wide range of purposes. By placing your shortcuts into specific folders you can obtain special functionality. Some examples include:

* \\Windows\\StartUp - shortcuts to applications placed in this directory will automatically be started whenever the Windows Mobile device is reset.
* \\Windows\\Start Menu - shortcuts placed in this directory will appear in the Windows start menu.
* \\Windows\\Start Menu\\Settings - shortcuts placed in this folder will appear on the System tab of the Settings application that is accessible via the Start Menu.

How To: Disable Background Programs or Services in Windows Vista

A Windows service is a executable program that runs in the background of the Microsoft Windows operating systems.Windows service performs specific functions and is designed not to require any user intervention to run.Windows services usually are configured to start when Windows is started and run in the background all the time. Although they can be started manually if needed. An example of a windows service is your anti-virus program or another security program that is used for real-time protection.

If you don’t want to uninstall a program or service completely in Windows Vista, you can prevent the program or service from starting with Windows. Many programs offer an easy way to prevent this behavior. You should try the following:

* Click or right-click the program icon in the notification area. Look for an Options, Preferences or Properties command. Sometimes, the program offers an option for having the program start with Windows.
* Start the program and look through the program menus for a similar option.
* Check the Startup folder on the Windows Vista Start menu. Often, programs place shortcuts there to load components at startup.

If a program does not offer a friendly way to prevent it from running with Windows, you can move on to the more powerful System Configuration utility (often called MSCONFIG, after the name of its executable file).

To use System Configuration Utility in Windows Vista:

windows services

* Click on Windows Vista Start. In the Start Search window, type msconfig. (You can also press WINKEY+R to open the Run dialog and then type msconfig.exe)
* Under the search results, click msconfig.exe.
* Enter your administrator credentials and click Continue if you are prompted by Windows Vista User Account Control(UAC).
* In the System Configuration window, the Startup tab shows all the programs that are scheduled to start with Windows.Resize the columns so that you have a good view of the name and manufacturer.
* Go through each item, clearing the check box for programs you don’t want to start with Windows.
* Click OK, and then restart the computer.

Also You Can Remove a Background Service From Windows Vista Using Command Prompt:

* Click on the Windows orb and type CMD and press Enter to open a command prompt
* Type the following command, substituting the name of the service found above for the term servicename, and press Enter.

sc delete servicename

for example: sc delete CLTNetCnService

* If the deletion was successful, you’ll see the following response.

[SC] DeleteService SUCCESS

* Type Exit to close the Windows Vista command prompt and reboot your computer.

Now onwards the service has been removed from your Windows Vista computer.

Check Performance of Your Computer With Windows Task Manager and Resource Monitor

Microsoft Windows Task Manager provides information about applications and processes that are currently running on a computer, and also provides real-time performance information about the processor, memory, and network usage. You can start Windows Task Manager in the following ways:

* Right-click any open space on the Windows taskbar and click Task Manager.
* Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and select Start Task Manager.

The main tab in the Windows Task Manager window that measures performance is the Performance tab

The Performance tab is divided into the following sections:

* CPU Usage indicates the percentage of processor cycles that are not idle at the moment. If this graph displays a high percentage continuously (and not when there is an obvious reason, like such as a big application), your processor may be overloaded. If your computer has two processors, two graphs are shown.
* CPU Usage History indicates how busy the processor has been recently, although the graph only shows values since Task Manager was opened.
* Memory indicates the percentage of the physical memory that is currently being used.
* Physical Memory Usage History indicates how full the physical memory has been over time, although it also only shows values since Task Manager was opened.
* Physical Memory (MB ) indicates the total and available physical memory, as well as the amount of memory in the system cache.
* Kernel Memory (MB ) indicates the memory used by the operating system. Paged kernel memory is available only to system processes. Non-paged kernel memory can be used by applications when necessary.
* System provides totals for the number of handles, threads, and processes currently running. A process is a single executable program. A thread is an object within a process that runs program instructions. A handle represents a specific input/output (I/O) instance. A process may have multiple threads, each of which in turn may have multiple handles.

Monitor Your Computer Performance With Resource Monitor

On the Performance tab of Microsoft Windows Task Manager, you will also notice a button named Resource Monitor. Click this button (and enter your credentials when prompted by Windows Vista User Account Control(UAC) to open Resource Monitor

The Resource Monitor window is divided into several sections:

* Resource Overview. This section shows graphs that are identical to those shown in the Task Manager Performance tab.
* CPU. This section lists processes that are consuming CPU cycles, much like the Processes tab in Task Manager.
* Disk. This section shows in real time what processes are reading and writing to disk.
* Network. This section shows in real time what processes are sending and receiving on the network.
* Memory. This section shows in real time what processes are committed to memory.
* Learn More. This section features links to various information in Windows Help about monitoring resources.

How To: Create a CON Folder in Windows Vista or in XP

“An Indian discovered that nobody can’t create a FOLDER anywhere named as “con“. This is something pretty cool….and unbelievable . At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened!!!”

In Microsoft’s Windows operating systems like Windows XP or in Vista we cant create folders with names CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9 directly from GUI. This is because, DOS device names are reserved words, and cannot be used as folder or file names.As a variable can’t be named as keyword so as the folder.When parsing a reference to a file or folder, Windows correctly checks for the case in which a single DOS device name is used in the path, and treats it as invalid. But in computers there is nothing is Impossible. We can create folders with these names in Microsoft Windows Vista or in XP.If you try to make a folder named “CON” (case insensitive)in Windows Vista or XP renames it back to what it was. So creating a new folder with the name “CON” just renames it to “New Folder”.The bug seems like a variable that got treated as a string or vice-versa. Trying to create the folder from a cmd prompt failed with an error “The directory name is invalid.”.This also works when you try to create a file called “CON”, or “CON.” “.CON” shows up the way it should.Moreover, if you try to use a reserved name to name a file such as a Notepad or Microsoft Word document you will generally receive an error message.

Is it possible to create a folder which is names as CON in Windows Vista or in XP.YES because it is still possible to create these folders using the command prompt.Here is the instructions to create it.

* Go to Windows Vista or in XP command prompt

C:\\>md \\\\.\\e:\\con

* NOTE:”con” can be replaced by any other names such as “prn”, “nul” “com1″ “com2″ “lpt1″ etc.
* To delete the folder use the following command

C:\\>rd \\\\.\\e:\\con

NOTE:The folder can only be deleted from the command prompt.You cannot remove it by right-click delete

Anoher Method:

Create Folder While name Type CON and then stroke the key ALT+0160 on numeric key pad.(CON -> ALT+0160).Then you can create CON folder and other described folders.It means that when you type a folder name with simple ALT+0160 you can create empty folder.There is no name for a folder.Here we are using “CON ” (CON with space).This is the tricky logic here.

Note:- Actually you’ll have to press the number’s of the number pad or else it won’t work. That is, create a new folder, rename it Con but don’t press enter yet. Hold down Alt and type 255 on the number pad and then press enter. (for laptop users, press Fn key and press the letter keys k-i-i to make use of number pad).

How To: Prevent Windows Vista From Connecting To Ad Hoc Wireless Networks To Secure From Wireless Threats

Some words about Ad Hoc wireless networks:

If you have two or more computers equipped with wireless adapters (WiFi cards), it is possible to easily connect them in a network by setting up a so-called “ad hoc” network, that is, a computer-to-computer network, without using an access point.If one of the computers on the Ad Hoc network has an internet connection, it is possible to share it with the other computers on the network, like in the case of a traditional local network.Each machine in effect acts as both an access point and as a client. Ad Hoc wireless networks are great for small meetings or for transferring large files from one machine to another in an area where a network connection is unavailable.The technical term of this mode of operation is IBSS - Independent Basic Service Set.This is dangerous sometimes because your Windows Vista computer could be hacked or penetrated in unsecured ad hoc wireless network.One of the most easiest ways to secure your computer from wireless threats, is to prevent Ad Hoc wireless networking in Windows Vista.

Here are quick steps to filter this ad hoc wireless network connecting feature in Windows Vista:

* Go to Windows Vista Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> then right click on Command Prompt (cmd.exe) and click Run as administrator.
* Command prompt window will open, then type netsh wlan show filters and hit Enter button to show the wireless filter setting on this computer.
* You can then type the command netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=adhoc to block ad hoc network connecting feature.

Note: If you see Error: function WlanSetFilterList returns 5. The requested operation requires elevation. after issuing the above command, you did not run this command prompt as administrator. Rerun the Windows Vista command prompt as administrator and you will have no problem.

* If you type netsh wlan show filters again, then you will see the filter you just set.
* Your computer will not get connected to any ad hoc wireless network anymore.

Note: You can type netsh wlan delete filter permission=denyall networktype=adhoc to delete this filter in case you really need to connect to ad hoc wireless network with your Windows Vista computer.
