"Ever pull up Task Manager (Alt-Cntl-del) and look under processes and wonder what the heck are all those processes that are running. Well I came across this great link. First open task manager and place off to a corner. Next pull up the System Configuration Utility (Start-Run-MSCONFIG), click on the Startup tab. Place this window in the lower corner.

Now run this internet link: http://www.answersth...es/tasklist.htm

You will see the page is laid out numericaly & by alphabeticaly. Look at the first item running in the Task Manager Processes. Click on the first letter of its name on the web page. Locate the actual name of the process. If its something not needed or wanted you can end the process. See if you can locate it on the Task Manager List and see if its on the startup list, services list, etc.. If it is un-check it to keep it from starting next time you boot.

Example: WBLoad.exe (Widow Blinds used to load AlienGUISE package). Don't delete."

ATT Parents - wanna block those pesky rugrats from staying on the pc all night?

So did I, and I found this today. Bwhahaha

This is a cool little function that I found could be useful for parents!!!
1. Open Help and Support and type "logon hours" (without the quotes) in the search box.
2. Go to Full text matches and click on "Net user". See the examples for setting a user's logon hours. Some examples would be:

or just type cmd in the run box:
3. Open a Command Prompt window and type similar to below.

net user billyjoe /time:M-F,08:00-17:00
net user joeybilly /time:Sa-Su,8am-5pm
net user mrmagoo /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00
net user bob /time:all (this one means this user can always log on)

4. Enter the appropriate "net user" command for the user(s) you wish to restrict access for.

Simple. Bwhahahahah, he won't know what's hit him ;)

The logon restriction is great for restricting logon privledges but it does not log them off, for that you need: WinOFF :cool:

I am extremely surprised that no one has posted the following. I've tried a good 10 or 20 Optimization/Tweaking Guides (just for speed) and this one is by far the best. Once you get past the good 10 pages of background info, the author leaves you with at least 50 more of solid tips and tweaks (as well as recommendations for excellent applications). Well, without further ado, here it is:

TweakGuides.com

It also contains Tweaking Guides for most popular first person shooters out there.
