Misc Windows XP Hacks (Numlock, Browse speed)

Author:black - Fri Jul 20 15:46:24 2007

If your numlock is enabled during the login screen every time your pc boots, fix it this way:

Go to:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Control Panel\Keyboard\
set InitialKeyboardIndicators to 0

The S-1-5-18 is the Security ID for the Builtin User, which the Logon process runs under.

(Rather annoying 'feature' which pops up on my laptop every time I reboot it during connected by remote desktop)


If you experience lag while browsing other computers, you can disable your computers automatic browsing of printers or scheduled tasks.

Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameSpace\

Here you will find two sub keys. Not values, Keys.

One is "{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D}" which tells Explorer to show printers shared on the remote machine. 
The other, "{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}," tells Explorer to show remote scheduled tasks.

Remove eighter key corresponding to the 'feature' you don't like.
