Win 7 64bit RC1 Tweaks

Hi Folks

Thought I would start a new thread about tweaks for the above o/s.

I recently upgraded to win7 RC1 64bit but found that at the sec there are not a lot of GUI front end software for tweaking the o/s, there were a few registry edits doing the same thing which was cool.

Anyways I thought I would start a thread with these tweaks in it for anyone who was interested, if anyone has any other tweaks please post them

I thought that we could end up with a simple registry file that would perform all the tweaks in one click.

Anyways if your interested in the tweaks I found please copy and paste the below (all in bold), into note pad then rename the file XXXXX.reg (XXX being wotever you want to call the file):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers\Copy To]

@="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers\Move To]

@="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

"AutoEndTasks"="1"

"HungAppTimeout"="1000"

"MenuShowDelay"="8"

"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"

"LowLevelHooksTimeout"="1000"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer]

"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001

"LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo"=dword:00000001

"NoResolveSearch"=dword:00000001

"NoResolveTrack"=dword:00000001

"NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l]

"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="2000"

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]

@="Take Ownership"

"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]

@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"

"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]

@="Take Ownership"

"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]

@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"

"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"


Please include everything that is in bold

Once saved just double click on the file and allow it to write these to the registry and then reboot and the tweaks are done.

As with any tweaks please dont hold me responsible and make sure you back up before trying these

If u want a guarantee then buy a toaster, but all I can guarantee is that these tweaks worked on my system and there is nothing malicious in the script

Tweaks

Hi

They generally speed up some of the windows default settings like the kill apps and show menu, which are generally set slow in the windows registry. This isnt overclocking but it will just sharpen up win7 so it feels faster and gets rid of some of the annoying features.

I am not gonna list them one by one but if u take a line of the script and google it u will find the long winded answer on wiki or another site.

I wrote the registry file for personal use tbh as I spent the time reading and finding all the tweaks and all the explanations I just wanted a 1 click file to save me having to do them all individually. This thread really was just to save u guys that time, and also to maybe find some more tweaks to make win7 even better

EDIT: Retracted, it's merely setting up a Run As Administrator command in the explorer shell.

Tweaks

These tweaks are aimed more for the experienced user

They only disable annoying stuff within win7 that experienced users dont want to see, the administrator stuff is more for taking ownership of files so u dont get about 10 prompts to alter a file.

I would always be weary of any registry file I found posted on a forum and you are all free to edit the file to take out anything you are unsure about but these tweaks are posted in good faith with nothing intended to mess up someones puter or put any1 at any kinda risk.

As for spyware the script does not take you to any kinda of website or install anything on your PC and as long as you have a decent firewall and anti virus installed, the script will not put you in any more kinda of danger than you normally are. If you havent got a decent firewall and AV installed then win7 aint gonna stop you getting a nasty rash

Like I said before make sure you backup before using and you will not have a problem, if you are unsure dont bother with tweaks

Incorrect.

There are batches of wildfire malware out there that do-not get picked up by ANY antivirus/antispyware, until ur infected and have to deal with it afterwards.

Most common at present are the ones claiming to be antivirus themselves, and the ones offering to remove viruses u don't have for a varying fee.

The higher the level the programs have to write to where-ever they chose in ur OS, the more prevelant and trickier to remove they could be.

The top ones are the basics. Changing how fast the menu opnes. Killing dead apps etc. All good.

Looking at the last two I believe that its nothing to do with the C drive.

It just uses the command prompt as the admin group so that you can run stuff normally without having to right click, run as, admin

LoL

Makes you wish you had never started a thread lol

Like I said this script was for personal use and disabled the stuff I did not want to see all the time, and speeds a few things in win7 up, I have a firewall that warns me when a app trys to access the net or change settings on my PC so personally I dont need win7 to prompt me.

Like I said above you are free to edit or not to run this script lol

I just thought for those of you who know wot the settings relate to and also dont want to be prompted everytime this would save you a few minutes of your life

The final command with the "/t" being a take away of those rights ?

I don't understand why it takes ownership, does nothing, then takes it away.
