    [​IMG]Most of you might be aware of the fact that it is possible to use Windows 7 and Vista for 120 days without activation. This is actually possible using the slmgr -rearm command which will extend the grace period from 30 days to 120 days. However in this post I will show you a small trick using which it is possible to use Windows 7 without activation for approximately an year! Here is a way to do that.
    1. Goto “Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories” . Right click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run as Administrator“. If you are not the administrator then you are prompted to enter the password, or else you can proceed to step-2.
    2. Now type the following command and hit enter
    slmgr -rearm
    3. You will be prompted to restart the computer. Once restarted the trial period will be once again reset to 30 days. You can use the above command for up to 3 times by which you can extend the trial period to 120 days without activation.
    4. Now comes the actual trick by which you can extend the trial period for another 240 days. Open Registry Editor (type regedit in “Run” and hit Enter) and navigate to the following location

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

    5. In right-side pane, change value of SkipRearm to 1. 6. Now you will be able to use the slmgr -rearm command for another 8 times so that you can skip activation process for another 240 days. So you will get 120 + 240 = 360 days of free Windows 7 usage.
    120 days using “slmgr -rearm” command before registry edit +
    240 days using “slmgr -rearm” command after registry edit
    = 360 Days

    How To Become The SYSTEM User In Windows XP






    If you think Administrator has the largest privileges onto the computer, then you are wrong. There is a user who is named SYSTEM. SYSTEM has full control of the operating system and it’s kernel. If you open windows task manager (press ctrl+alt and delete) you will see that System User controls several processes. These processes cannot be closed by Administrator. In this tutorial we will see how to trick Windows into running our desktop as System. So we’ll get a much greater privileges over computer.
    1.Open Command Prompt. Go to Start , then Run. In Run option type cmd and click OK. After this will open Command Prompt, or Start->All Programs ->Accessories->Command Prompt
    [​IMG]
    2. In Command Prompt write at 13:55 /interactive “cmd.exe” and press enter , the time is usually a minute or two ahead of your present time in the 24 hours format.
    [​IMG]
    After a minute or two will appear new Comand Prompt Window wit different title bar. It has changed from cmd.exe to svchost.exe.
    [​IMG]
    3. End current explorer.exe process. Open Task Manager, select explorer.exe and click End Process.
    [​IMG]
    4. In new Comand Prompt with title svchost.exe write cd.. and press enter , then write explorer.exe and press enter.
    [​IMG]
    After this you will become SYSTEM user,

    Save The Current Windows Session And Restore Them Later




    Have you ever needed to restart your Windows, but you may not want to lose the open windows and current situation of your desktop. Hibernation also loads the windows session but it does not actually restart your PC actually. If you really need a cold boot then you’ll obviously lose the current situation. You might have wished that you could save the current session of Windows as you can do in browsers like Opera and Firefox. You’ll never notice it’s need until you have lots of windows open and working in all of the windows at once.
    Well if you are worrying about this then no more worries. I am here with a step by step tutorial to guide you through every step you need to save the current session of your desktop for later restoration.
    You’ll need Cache My work which can be downloaded from here.
    After the page is loaded click on green download button as illustrated in image below:
    [​IMG]
    After you downloaded the program, install and open it.
    [​IMG]
    Using this tool is very simple and easy. Just check on the boxes favorable to you and click on save.
    [​IMG]
    Next, go to Tools > Option. In new option window check on Restore Previous explorer windows at next logon.
    [​IMG]
    Now you may close the window.
    Now onwards, it will start to cache your windows when system is being booted and reload the cache in next system start.
    Just like hibernate, it stores the current cache of windows to seprate location of your hard drive. Since catching needs writing hard drive, you’ll feel that your system is being slow while shutting down and loading up. This is not a big deal as it takes time to read and write data to and from hard drive.
    Using this technique will possibly save a lot of time. This also enables you to get familiar with the environment you were in the screen before windows restart.
    Hope this tutorial was helpful.

    Disable Auto Hide Windows Taskbar Forever


    This tutorial might not be very useful but whoever needs it, here it is. Sometimes some user may keep setting the auto hide and personally you may find it annoying. So in that case, you would like to set it so that it permanently stays there.
    Hopefully, there is one another method, that is, making separate user account for you. But still I am going to teach you how you can disable the auto hide feature of Windows Taskbar.
    Though it is possible to disable autohide feature from Registry editor, we are not going to do this. Because tweaking registry may risk your current computer status. Instead, we’ll be using Local Group Policy editor.
    Open Local Group Policy Editor by going to RUN > and typing gpedit.msc.
    [​IMG]
    In the left column, go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar.
    [​IMG]
    In the right column, look for Prevent Changes to Taskbar and Start Menu Settings under Setting column.
    [​IMG]
    Double Click to Open it. By default, it is set to Not Configured and choose Enabled.
    [​IMG]
    Next Click on OK, and then close Policy Editor Window.
    Whenever someone wants to access the Taskbar property, he’ll be denied.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    To re-enable it, follow same procedure and Click on either Not-configured or Disabled radio button and Press OK.
    Hope you loved it.

    How to create a locked folder in Win XP


    To create a locked folder we need to create two batch files. The first batchfile will “lock” the folder (actually it will turn the ordinary folder into a link to the Control Panel using an address code), and the other one will “unlock” it. When someone tries to access that folder, he will be redirect to Control Panel(we can in fact type in any address code so that the user could be redirected to wherever we want). You should hide these batch files, especially the second one.
    1. Create a folder, that you will use to store your protected data. For this example, I created a folder called “locked”, and put that folder in My Documents.
    [​IMG]
    2. Open Notepad and copy this code ren “FOLDERNAME” “FOLDERNAME“.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
    “FOLDERNAME” change in to name of your folder, in this example “FOLDERNAME” is locked.My code looks like this ren locked.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} locked
    Save notepad file like lock.bat in My Documents. In option Save as Type, select All Files
    [​IMG]
    3. Open another notepad file and copy this code ren “FOLDERNAME“.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} “FOLDERNAME” , Save file as in Step 2, just choose a different filename , like unlock.bat
    After this we can see in My Documents something like this:[​IMG]
    If we open (double click) lock.bat our folder will turn into a link to Control Panel, and the files will not be visible. until we use unlock.bat
