Automatically run programs when starting Windows

If there are applications or commands that you run every single time you start your computer (Email comes to mind) you may want to consider setting things up so that these programs run automatically during the Windows XP startup. This can be done quite easily in XP by creating shortcuts and shuffling them around.

Here's how: Windows XP has a startup folder located at 'C:\ Documents and Settings\ (your user name)\ Start Menu\ Programs\Startup.' Shortcuts placed into this folder will be run automatically when Windows XP starts up.

If you already have shortcuts for the programs you desire to use, copy and paste them into the startup folder. Otherwise, go to 'start\programs,' select the program you would like to create a shortcut for, right click it and select 'send to' then 'desktop.' This will create a shortcut on the desktop that you can then use

check orkut through RSS feed

With orkut being blocked in almost every school, college and office, it has become quite difficult to catch up with the latest scraps that your friends send to you. But many would say that there are loads of proxy sites to log into orkut but again are they safe? or do you trust your username and password being sent to google servers via these proxy sites? Atleast I don’t. So here is the safest way to do it. I m going to share a trick that you can use to check your scraps regularly without even signing into orkut.

First thing you need is your orkut uid (i.e. userID). To get your just go to your profile page and you will find something like this in your address bar.

(Look for the numbers in bold, this is your uid!)

Now use this link and replace the with your own . The full address will look something like this.

And you are done just copy and paste the complete address in the address bar and see your scraps without even signing in! You can even add this address to your favorite RSS Feed Reader and read your scraps directly from it instead of using a proxy site for orkut.

Difference between COMMAND.COM and CMD.EXE?

As you probably know, MS-DOS was the predecessor to Windows. It was character mode only, and you ran programs by typing their name at the command prompt. MS-DOS was created when 16 bit processors were becoming popular, and its widespread adoption is credited with kick starting the rise in popularity of the personal computer.

Then two things happened: Windows, and 32 bit processors. Fast forward to today, and MS-DOS has pretty much disappeared from the landscape - Windows, and its rich graphical interface, is everywhere. The same is true for the 16bit processor. Most all contemporary machines are built on various flavors of 32bit processors.

What does all that have to do with COMMAND.COM and CMD.EXE? It's quite simple really: CMD.EXE is a command line processor for 32bit Windows. Much like MS-DOS before it, it provides a character-mode only user interface into which you can type commands to run programs. CMD.EXE is a 32 bit program that is fully a part of Windows - in fact it's what gets run when you select Command Prompt on the Windows Accessories menu.
COMMAND.COM, on the other hand, exists only for compatibility and 16bit programs. It exists solely for those programs which have not been updated since the days of MS-DOS. It's designed to run 16bit applications, and operates just like the old MS-DOS did.
On the surface, they're very similar. Even though CMD.EXE was a complete re-write, it's based on the same concepts and similar syntax. But the differences become quickly apparent. Let's used your "CD" example from above.

In CMD.EXE, you can change to the "Program files" directory by doing this:
cd "\Program Files"

Note the quotes around the directory name. Try doing that in COMMAND.COM and you'll get this:
cd "\Program Files"
Parameter format not correct - "\program
The problem is COMMAND.COM doesn't know about long file names (filenames longer than 8.3) or filenames that have spaces in them, and it doesn't have a way to quote the name. So if you still need to, how do you CD to that directory in COMMAND.COM? Well, first you need to find out the alternate, 8.3 name of that directory ... its short name:

dir /x
Directory of C:\
08/21/2005 09:50 AM PROGRA~1 Program Files
(I've removed some of the lines of output for brevity.) The "/X" parameter to DIR tells it to include the "shortname" in the output. In this case that's "PROGRA~1", a machine generated alternative name for "PROGRAM FILES". Now we can CD to that in COMMAND.COM:
cd progra~1
Volume in drive C is
Volume Serial Number is B026-62CA
Directory of C:\PROGRA~1
08/21/2005 09:50 AM .
08/21/2005 09:50 AM ..
03/24/2005 04:42 PM Adobe
The bottom line is actually quite simple: use CMD.EXE unless you know you need COMMAND.COM for compatibility with some older 16bit program. And even then, if you try and run a 16 bit program in CMD.EXE, it will typically run it within COMMAND.COM for you anyway, so you still may not need to know or care.
And in case you're wondering, yes ... something similar is coming down the road as 64 bit processors begin to arrive. The 64bit version of Windows does, I believe, include another command processor, one for native 64bit command-line programs.

Speedup Windows XP in Minutes!

1. Disable extra startup programs

Several items add up to the start up list when you install different software. Such programs are loaded when your system boots and remain in memory (RAM), they also continuously use processor. Here are is what you have to do to make them go away:
Goto Start>Run
Type "msconfig", without quotations
Hit enter key or click the OK button
A window will show up, you have to click the startup tab, as shown in the figure
In the Startup tab you will see several boxes and some of them will selected (checked). All you have to do is to uncheck extra items that are of no use. If you run an antivirus program it is not recommended to uncheck it.
After making you choices press the OK button, you will be prompted to restart computer to apply changes.
After restarting your computer a dialogue will be displayed. You can check the option for not showing this dialogue every time your PC reboots.

2. Disable Extra Services

On menu opened by msconfig command, there is also another tab for Services. Click it and check "Hide All Microsoft Services" option. This option will display you list of third party services. Uncheck the services that are undesirable. As usual you have to reboot to apply the changes.

3. Adjust Display Settings

XP has a very cool looking user interface, but it consumes a certain amount of memory. To make it a little lightweight you have to:
Right click My Computer and select Properties
Click the Advanced tab
Go to Performance>Settings (have to click settings button in the performance section)
Uncheck all except: Use visual styles on windows and buttons Use drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop Show translucent selection rectangle Show shadows under mouse pointer Show shadows under menus
Finally click Apply and OK

4. Remove Widgets and Background

Different third party widgets and visual styles like for Vista like look and feel make your system slow. If you remove such packages you system will perform better on CPU and memory intensive tasks. Selecting default and no wallpaper as background also gives better performance than that of "high quality" wallpapers.

5. Folder Browsing

When you try to browse folder, Windows automatically searches for printer and network files. This is a performance overhead. To fix this you have to follow following steps:
Open My Computer
Click Tools>Folder Options
Select the View tab and unselect the check box for Automatically search for network folders and printers
Click Apply then OK and finally reboot to apply the change.

6. Indexing Service

Windows XP comes with a very heavy and not so good "Indexing Service". The service "claims" to makes indexes of different files on your computer so that they can be retrieved easily. The service consumes a large amount of memory, and it has no major advantage either. To disable it you have to:
Go to Start>Control Panel
Double click Add or Remove programs.
Select Add/Remove Windows Components, a new dialogue, as shown in the figure, will appear.
Uncheck the Indexing Service, if not already unchecked
Click Next to finalize

7. Size of Page File

Page file size is not constant by default. Due to this operating system has to resize the file each time when more space is required, this is a performance overhead. All you have to do is to set the file size to a reasonable limit. Follow the steps:
Right click My Computer, Select Properties then Advanced tab
Click the settings button under the performance section
Click the Advanced tab
Click Change button under the Virtual memory section
"Virtual Memory" dialogue will appear (also shown in the figure below)
Highlight the drive containing page file, which is C: by default
Select the Custom size radio button and give same values in Initial size and Maximum size fields.
Click Set and OK buttons to apply the changes
If your system has a sufficiently large memory (1 or 2 GB) then you can even disable paging.

8. Enable Direct Memory Access (DMA)

Go to:
Right Click My Computer, select properties
Select the Hardware tab
Click the Device Manager button
Double click IDE/ATAPI controllers
Keep on checking if DMA is enabled for each, you have to double click each option click Advanced Settings tab (as shown in figure) The tab may or may not be available for each option. It is only available in Primary and Secondary Channels.
Set the transfer mode to "DMA if Available" both for Device 1 and 0
Perform the same operation for other items in the list, if applicable.

Vertical Text Selection In Word

Here is a nifty tip for selecting text in Word that many people don’t know about. Normally when you select text in Word, you do so horizontally, from right to left or left to right. However, what do you do if the text you need to select is vertical; for example, what if you want to bold the first word on each line? You can select and bold each word individually or you can make a vertical selection.
To make a vertical selection, hold down the ALT key as you drag the mouse pointer to select the text. If you want to select the first word on each line, hold down the ALT key and drag the mouse pointer up or down to highlight each word.
When you’re using this tip, remember that you can make a vertical selection anywhere in your document.

A More Secure Way Of Performing Administrative Tasks In XP

Most network related tasks must be performed by an administrator. An administrator account does exist by default. However, to increase security, it is usually recommended that you rename the administrator account to something else and create your own user account to log on with.
Once you have your own account, you can add it to the built-in administrators group to give yourself the necessary permissions to perform network related tasks (as well as other system tasks). In Windows XP, you can do so using the following steps:
1.Right click My Computer and click Manage.
2.Expand Local Users and Groups.
3.Highlight Groups and double click Administrators in the details pane.
4.Click Add. Enter the name of the user you want to add to the group. Click OK.
5.Click OK.
The user account you just added to the administrators group will now be able to perform network related tasks on the computer.

access blocked sites

Approach 1: There are websites Anonymizer who fetch the blocked site/ page from their servers and display it to you. As far as the service provider is concerned you are viewing a page from Anonymizer and not the blocked site.
open dis sites
>> math tunnel
>> kproxy
Approach 2: To access the blocked Web site. type the IP number instead of the URL in the address bar. But if the ISP software maps the IP address to the web server (reverse DNS lookup), the website will remain blocked.
Approach 3: Use a URL redirection service like or These domain forward services sometimes work as the address in the the url box remain the redirect url and do not change to the banned site.
Approach 4: Use Google Mobile Search. Google display the normal HTML pages as if you are viewing them on a mobile phone. During the translation, Google removes the javascript content and CSS scripts and breaks a longer page into several smaller pages. [link] View this website in Google Mobile
Approach 5: Enter the URL in Google or Yahoo search and then visit the cached copy of the page. To retrieve the page more quickly from Google’s cache, click “Cached Text Only” while the browser is loading the page from cache.
Approach 6: A recent Oreilly story on accessing blocked websites suggested an approach to access restricted web sites using Google language tools service as a proxy server. Basically, you have Google translate your page from English to English (or whatever language you like). Assuming that Google isn’t blacklisted in your country or school, you should be able to access any site with this method. Visit this site via Google Proxy
Approach 7: Anonymous Surfing Surf the internet via a proxy server. A proxy server (or proxies) is a normal computer that hides the identity of computers on its network from the Internet. Which means that only the address of the proxy server is visible to the world and not of those computers that are using it to browse the Internet. Just visit the proxy server website with your Web browser and enter a URL (website address) in the form provided

bypassing firewall

There are a number of ways to go about all of them have been outline here.
1. Using Google services to bypass or ublock a firewall to access blocked sites like Orkut, Myspace, Bebo
In this hack we try to exploit Google’s Translation service to bypass the firewall to access orkut. If you notice the url it is translating from English to English.Use the given link below and try logging in to orkut. the link may break out from the frame example when you initially login into Orkut. It might redirect you back to in which case again use the given link above.Next is using the Google Mobile Search to access blocked Websites. is not a great option since it displays them as it would look like when you are viewing them on a mobile phone. Also it strips out all the javascript content and CSS scripts and breaks a longer page into several smaller pages.Example
2. Using a Proxy Server For bypassing or unblock Filter /Firewalls at office
First find a “proxy server.” Simply search the internet for “proxy servers”. (Even a good proxy server might not work later. Therefore, learn how to find them. For these instructions, we will use an actual proxy server in Taiwan with the technical specs “address″ and “port 8080″. Try these links List of Proxies A directory of free web-based proxy services and A Directory of free proxy servers ) Then proceed as follows:Internet Explorer 6.01. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and then click LAN Settings.2. Under Proxy server, click to select the Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.3. In the Address box, type the IP address of the proxy server.4. In the Port box, type the port number that is used by the proxy server for client connections (by default, 8080).5. You can click to select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box if you do not want the proxy server computer to be used when you connect to a computer on the local network (this may speed up performance).6. Click OK to close the LAN Settings dialog box.7. Click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.
3. Using IP resolution to bypass or unblock weak firewalls to access blocked sites
This is for all those pathetic souls out there who are sad and worried sitting in their office cubicle behind a firewall/filter, which has rendered your dear old orkut inaccessible :-)!
Well, just as something to do with my free time today as my brain was unable to solve a bug in my current code, I decided to break open the filter settings of orkut being inaccessible :-)!
Need to keep trying and trying hard @ breaking stuff
A lil bit know-how of using computers… Essentially the mantra of Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
Ability to browse
That’s right - anybody with the basics of browsing can break open the filter for orkutting
Principle behind the breakingThis section can be skipped by the people who are not interested in learning why you can break open a filtered site! Essentially what your filter is checking for is the domain name to be blocked. IOW, the filter would search for ur HTTP header for the domain name to be say and will block any headers from proceeding to the website :-)!
Now, how can we hack this?
The answer is much simpler than it seems actually. At least for my case, I just replaced the domain name by its corresponding IP address. For e.g. the time when I wanted to access
I went to Convert Host Name to IP Address or Find IP address of a host - e.g. find IP address of host name of and found out the IP address of
Replace the occurrence in the URL on your web-address by the corresponding IP. Boom, everything starts working!!

Increasing internet speed

Log on as the administrator,then go to start->run->gpedit.msc.Now expand the 'local computer policy' branch and now expand 'administrator template ' branch and the 'network branch'. Highlight the 'Qos packet scheduler' in the left window. in the right window double click the 'limit reservable bandwidth' setting. In the setting tab check the 'enabled' item where it says 'bandwidth limit %' change it to '0' using the scroll bar or the keyboard.the effect of this change may be instant on some system while for some it may be needed to reboot.

Renaming more than one file in one go

Select all the files you want to rename then right click and choose rename.Type a new name (logs) and press enter and the subsequent files in the series will be named as logs1, logs2,... To specify the starting number for the series, type it in parentheses after the new file name, and the files in the series will be numbered in sequence starting with the number you typed.
