CHANGE MANUFACTURER NAME OF YOUR COMPUTER IN SYSTEM PROPERTIES

1. Create your logo image (if you don’t already have one) and put it in the following system folder:
• C:\Windows\System32\oobe\your-logo.bmp
• Note: You could put it anywhere, I suppose, and path to it accordingly, but the current OEM logo is probably here, and I prefer to be consistent with system files.
• The logo must be in the .bmp format and should be 120×120. Larger images will be automatically sized accordingly (and sometimes appear rather distorted).

2. Back up your system registry.

3. Run regedit and navigate to the following registry path:
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

4. If your computer is an OEM product, look for the two string values Logo and Manufacturer in the right panel. If it isn’t, you’ll have to create those two new string values. To do so, right-click on OEMInformation | New | String Value | Logo. (Repeat for Manufacturer.)

5. Right-click on the string value, select Modify, and enter the updated information for each value.

6. In the Windows System Properties panel, you’ll now see your updated personal information.

Top 5 registry keys for Windows 7

As administrators roll out Windows 7, the following questions and associated registry keys may help them achieve their desired user experience .

create-32-bit-dword-registry-key

  1. How do I turn on/off User Account Control (UAC)? How can I change my admin account to get full administrator rights on Windows 7? How can I write create files and directories on the root of the C: drive?

Each of these issues can be addressed via the following registry key:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Value: EnableLUA
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: [see below]
0 = Disable UAC.
1 = Enable UAC. (default)

Disabling UAC is not recommended because it weakens the security posture of the system. But if you accept the increased risk, disabling UAC will give your admin account full admin capabilities on the system and allow your to write files and directions anywhere on the system. This will also disable all other UAC-related registry key settings. If you are scanning your enterprise and want to ensure all systems are configured to use UAC (as recommended), look for a value of “1.”

  1. How can I prevent the computer from rebooting after patches are installed?

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Value: NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: [see below]
1 = The system will not be restarted if a user is currently logged on.
0 = The logged on user will be notified that the system will reboot in five minutes. (default)

By default, the computer automatically reboots after a Windows Update or after Windows Server Update Services installs patches. Users logged on at that time will be given a five-minute warning before reboot. By setting this value to “1,” the system will not automatically reboot if a user is logged on. Instead, a warning message will be given, and the system will not be rebooted. Note that some patches may not be fully installed until a reboot has occurred. Although this registry key setting helps address unscheduled reboots, it’s still important to reboot the system shortly after patch installation to ensure system stability and patch effectiveness.

  1. What registry key turns on/off Automatic Update?

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Value: NoAutoUpdate
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: [see below]
0 = Automatic Updates are enabled. (default)
1 = Automatic Updates will be disabled.

If you’re using a third-party patch management application or you like to “let it ride,” then disable Automatic Updates. Otherwise, keep this value at “0” so that Microsoft security updates are automatically installed as needed. You may need to add this registry key and value to your system if it doesn’t already exist.

  1. How can I require users to enter Ctl-Alt-Delete to log in?

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Value: DisableCAD
Type: REG_DWORD
Data: [see below]
0 = Users must press Ctl-Alt-Delete to log into the system. (Default for domain joined systems)
1 = Users do not need to press Ctl-Alt-Delete to log into the system. (Default for nondomain joined systems)

Unless Auto Login is enabled (see below), users must always enter a password to log in to the computer. The Ctl-Alt-Delete key sequence provides a secure mechanism to initiate the log-in process. Computers that are part of a domain require this key sequence by default: Nondomain joined machines and home-user systems do not. Instead, users select their usernames from a list displayed onscreen and then enter their passwords. Legal notice text (if configured) is not displayed when DisableCad is set to “1.” To ensure all of your corporate systems — both those joined to a domain and those not joined to a domain — require users to press Ctl-Alt-Delete, make sure this value is set to “0.”

  1. How can I ensure that users need to enter a username and password to log into the computer? How can I enable/disable Auto Admin Login?

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Value: Autoadminlogin
Type: REG_SZ
Data:
0 = Auto Admin Login is not enabled (default) 1 = Auto Admin Login is enabled

If enabled, the following values may be required:

Value: DefaultUserName
Type: REG_SZ
Data: username
Value: DefaultPassword (this value may not be present)
Type: REG_SZ
Data: password
Value: DefaultDomainName
Type: REG_SZ
Data: domainname or computername

The Auto Admin Login registry setting enables a system to start and log in as the specified administrative user account without requiring an interactive login. While this is a potentially dangerous setting, it may be required on some systems in an enterprise. If the DefaultPassword value is entered in the registry, the password string will be visible in clear text to anyone who can read your registry (locally or remotely).

If you need to use Auto Admin Login, you should use the alternate password storage mechanism so that the password won’t be stored under this key in clear text. Run “netplwiz” from the command line, and uncheck the box “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.” This will store the password with the local security authority. However, this option is not available on a domain-joined system. In that instance, the only way to enable auto login is to use the full set of registry values above. Also, when implementing Auto Admin Login, you can’t require Ctl-Alt-Delete (DisableCAD=0, discussed above).

When doing a security audit of your network, make sure to identify all instances of Auto Admin Login where the DefaultPassword value exists. I hope this value isn’t for your Domain Administrator account.

These five registry keys should help your configure your desktops to suit your needs. As always, test all registry changes before rolling them into production.

My Computer Tweaker: Massive Collection Of Windows Registry Tweaks Under One Roof

There are several ways to change the look and feel of Windows, the easiest among them being applications that modify different aspects of the operating system. Windows Tweaker is one such application with 100+ tweaks for system utilities and UI related components. However, many power users go beyond just mere apps and manually tweak the group policy editor and Windows registry to achieve the level of customization that is not possible through regular means. A lot of times, soon after a registry hack becomes common, someone makes a one-click tool for it, allowing novice users to take advantage of the tweak. Though that requires you to install a different tool for each registry tweak. Today, we present you a portable application called My Computer Tweaker that allows you to choose from a large number of handy registry tweaks to apply on your Windows 7 computer without worrying about not having a fallback plan.The tweaks are divided into several categories, including Desktop and Taskbar, System, Security, Visual Effects, Media Center etc., making it easy for you to choose the ones that best suit your requirements.

When Windows 8 was launched, we compiled a list of some of the best, local group policy editor tweaks and windows registry hacks for our users. For editing the registry, first of all you need to know what you are doing. Making wrong changes to the registry without having any idea on how to revert them can make apps malfunction, or even make Windows unusable. My Computer Tweaker allows you to safely make these changes while providing you with the option to revert everything back to the way it was, without having to manually modify or backup the Windows Registry.

The registry tweaks are available on the main interface, divided into several categories, where each category contains a large number of related registry hacks. You can customize elements related to the Desktop, Taskbar, Windows Explorer, shortcuts, context menu items, system security, visual effects, Internet Explorer and Media Center.

1

In order to apply the tweaks, just select the once you want, scroll down, and click the Apply button. You will be asked to confirm the action and create a system restore check point to have a backup in case something goes wrong. Some tweaks can be applied directly, while others will require you to restart the computer before changes take effect.

My Computer Tweaker is designed to work with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.

List of registry keys affecting IIS7 behavior

Few months ago, I collected all the registry keys IIS7 processes read. I then gathered the information about these registry keys from available information on the internet. I have been sitting on this information for quite a while hoping to make it complete and finally I got enough time during this holiday period to finish this. Below is what all I could gather. Keys affecting FTP/FTP7 and Asp.Net are not included in this article. There are few IIS7 keys omitted from this list either because I couldn’t think of why people would like to change it or because we don’t want to people to modify those. If you see any information missing or incorrect as per your knowledge, please send me a message.
Common (keys read by many parts of IIS)

1. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\InetStp\Configuration\MaxWebConfigFileSizeInKB (REG_DWORD)
Nativerd.dll uses the value of this registry key to determine the maximum allowed size (in KB) of web.config files. Configuration system will produce error “Cannot read configuration file because it exceeds the maximum file size” if it encounters a web.config larger than this size. Configuration system assumes a default value of 250 (100 in Vista RTM). Changing the value of this key will require a process restart.

2. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters\LastPriorityUPNLogon (REG_DWORD)
This registry key switches the order in which IIS processes try to do a user logon.  Default value is 0 (false) which means UPN logon is not last priority. IIS uses the UPN format first and then the “domain” and username” fields.  Setting this key to non-zero switches it so that IIS uses domain and username first and then the UPN logon.

3. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters\UserTokenTTL (REG_DWORD)
This key controls how long IIS will cache a user token before releasing it and recreating it (as needed). Default value is 900 (seconds). This key is used by token cache module in worker process and also by WAS. Read more about it here.

WAS

4. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS\Parameters\ConfigIsolationEnabled (REG_DWORD)
Default value of this key is 1 (configuration isolation enabled). Setting this registry to key to 0 will disable configuration isolation and worker process will try to read applicationHost.config directly. Any value other than 0 or 1 is assumed as default value. If you disable configuration isolation, you might need to change ACLs of %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config folder to grant worker process read access to applicationHost.config. As configuration isolation feature is not available in Vista RTM, this key is not valid on it.

5. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS\Parameters\ConfigIsolationPath (REG_SZ)
This regkey dictates the folder path where temp apppool config files are created by WAS. Default value of this key is %systemdrive%\inetput\temp\apppools. If you change this location make sure that LocalSystem has full access to the folder. This is not valid on vista RTM as the configuration isolation feature is not available.

6. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS\Parameters\AlwaysLogEvents (REG_DWORD)
If WAS detects an invalid object for some reason, it doesn’t allow object to log errors.  This registry switch allows users to see these errors. Default is 0 which means WAS won’t log events. Any non-zero value enables logging.

7. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS\Parameters\UseSharedWPDesktop (REG_DWORD)
Read about it here.

IISADMIN

8. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IISADMIN\Parameters\EnableABOMapperLog (REG_DWORD)
This registry key can be used to enable ABOMapper logging. When set to 0 (default value), ABOMapper doesn’t log any information. When set to non-zero value, a log is created as %windir%\system32\abomapper.log and ABO will spew debug information in this file. You need to restart iisadmin after you change this key. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931208 has more information about it.

9. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IISADMIN\Parameters\LazyWriteTime (REG_DWORD)
This registry key can be used to make ABOMapper buffer the configuration changes for sometime before it commits the changes to disk. Default value of this registry key is 0 which means lazy writer is OFF by default. Setting this key to value greater than 0 turns on Lazywriter with the lazy write time equal to the time set in the registry (interpreted as number of milliseconds).

10. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters\ConfigPollMilliSeconds (REG_DWORD) (not there in vista rtm)
Default value of this key is 0 (disabled) which means configuration system will rely on change notifications for tracking changes to configuration files. Positive value of this key means configuration system will check configuration file last modified time every N milliseconds to find changes to configuration files and will not use directory monitors.

11. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters\ObjectCacheTTL (REG_DWORD)
This regKey is used by both user mode file cache and kernel mode output cache. Both these caches run a scavenger every ObjectCacheTTL seconds. Read more about it here.

12. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters\DisableMemoryCache (REG_DWORD)
When this regKey value is set to non-zero, file cache is disabled. By default value of this key is assumed to be 0 and file cache is enabled. Read about it here.

13. HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\InetInfo\Parameters\MaxCachedFileSize (REG_DWORD)
This regKey is used by file cache to determine maximum size (in bytes) of file which can be cached. Any file of size greater than this value is not cached. Default value of this key is 256KB. Read more about it here.

Remove Shutdown and Restart Buttons In Windows 7

Sometimes you might have a shared computer where you don’t want the users to be able to do a Shutdown or Restart. Today we take a look at using Local Group Policy Editor to remove those buttons from the Start Menu in Windows 7.

Note: This process uses Local Group Policy Editor which is not available in Starter or Home versions of Windows 7.

1

Disable Shutdown, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate Buttons

To open Local Group Policy Editor, click on Start and type in gpedit.msc and hit Enter.

2

In Local Group Policy Editor navigate to User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar and double click on Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands.

3

Now you want to enable this setting and click Apply and Ok. You can leave a note to yourself in the comment box, which I find comes in handy when changing a lot of settings in Group Policy.

4

Now when you look at the Power options in the Start Menu, the only options available are Log off, Switch user, and Lock.

5

The setting goes into effect right away for all users of the machine. The button to turn off the computer if the user hits Ctrl+Alt+Del will be gone as well.

enjoy!!!!!!!

Disable Win+X Shortcut Keys on Windows 7 or Vista

Windows 7 and Vista have all the same Windows+X shortcut keys as other versions of Windows, such as Win+E for explorer and Win+D for the desktop, but adds in all of the Win+<num> keys to launch the shortcuts in the Vista Quick Launch menu (or switch to apps in Windows 7), as well as Win+X for mobility center, etc. But what if you want to disable all these extra keys?

Manual Registry Hack

Just open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box and navigate to the following key (create if it doesn’t exist)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

55

Create a 32-bit DWORD value called NoWinKeys and set the value to 1. You’ll need to log on and back off for the changes to take effect.

Make sure that you log off and back on in order for this change to take effect. You could also restart explorer.exe through task manager if you wanted.

ADD/PIN Recycle Bin or various useful System to Windows 8, and 8.1 Taskbar

Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 allow you to add or pin your favorite to Taskbar so that you can access them more quickly and simple whenever you using your computer.
There’re many different ways to do this so we’ll learn how to ADD/PIN Recycle Bin and various useful System shortcuts like: Control PanelMy Computer,Programs and Features, etc to Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Taskbar.

I will show you an example is: How to ADD/PIN Recycle Bin to Windows Taskbar and the same with each others.
Step 1:
First you’ll need to create a new shortcut. To do this, right-click on Desktop and select “New -> Shortcut“:

1

Step 2:
That opens the Create Shortcut window below where you type explorer.exe shell:RecycleBinFolder for the location. Then clickNext:

2

Step 3:
Name it, type: Recycle Bin for the shortcut’s title. Click Finish to close the Create Shortcut window.

3

Step 4:
Now you should have a second Recycle Bin shortcut on your desktop. However, it will not have the Recycle Bin icon. You can add one by right-clicking the shortcut, and selecting Properties to open the Recycle Bin Properties window. Then you select the Change Icon option to open the window below. There type SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll in the field “Look for icons in this file“, if not, copy %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll  to this field then click OK, all Icons will showing. Then you should be able to finda couple of Recycle Bin icons. One is an empty Recycle Bin, and the other is one filled with paper. Select either icon, and click OK. Click Apply and OK to close the Change Icon window. Then your desktop shortcut should also have a Recycle Bin icon.

4

Step 5:
Now add the new Recycle Bin to the taskbar. You can drag and drop it from the desktop to the taskbar, or right-click the shortcut and select Pin to Taskbar. Either way, you’ll have a Recycle Bin shortcut pinned on the Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 taskbar.

It’ll launch “Create Shortcut” wizard. Now you’ll need to enter the command to open desired system shortcut. You can use any of following commands to create the desired shortcut:

Quote:explorer shell:MyComputerFolder (for My Computer shortcut)
explorer shell:RecycleBinFolder (for Recycle Bin shortcut)
explorer shell:ControlPanelFolder (for Control Panel shortcut)
explorer shell:Administrative Tools (for Administrative Tools shortcut)
explorer shell:ChangeRemoveProgramsFolder (for Programs and Features shortcut)

explorer shell:NetworkPlacesFolder (for Network shortcut)

explorer shell:Profile (for your username folder shortcut)
explorer shell:Public (for Public folder shortcut)
explorer shell:My Documents (for Documents shortcut)
explorer shell:Common Documents (for Public Documents shortcut)
explorer shell:My Music (for Music folder shortcut)
explorer shell:CommonMusic (for Public Music folder shortcut)
explorer shell:My Pictures (for Pictures folder shortcut)
explorer shell:CommonPictures (for Public Pictures folder shortcut)
explorer shell:My Video (for Videos folder shortcut)
