How to tweak registry to boot faster windows xp

Let’s get straight to the point. This Windows XP registry tweak will make your system boot much faster. How much?
I can not say exactly how much faster, since it all depends on your computer specifications (processor, RAM, hard-drive and stuff like that…), but from my experience, this tweak decreased the time to boot-up for about 9-10 seconds.
Now you see how great this registry tweak is and it will get even better when you see how simple it is to apply. I will do my best to show you step-by-step and make it plain simple and of course with screenshots included.

How to make Windows XP start faster:

1. Click on “Start” on the taskbar.
2. Click “Run” located in the start menu.
3. Then in the “Run” panel, type: “regedit” without the quotation marks. (that will open up the Windows registry editor)
4. Then click on “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” and expand it.
5. Then click on “SYSTEM” and expand it.
6. Then scroll down, and expand “CurrentControlSet”.
7. Under that, expand “Control”.
8. Then, under that one, locate and click on “ContentIndex”. (so when you click on it, it needs to be highlighted and it’s options need to show up in the right panel of Windows XP Registry Editor)
So to sum up, here’s where you need to navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM  CurrentControlSet  Control  ContentIndex
Let’s continue… You have just 6 more steps until the finish line!
9. When you have clicked on “ContentIndex” and it is highlighted and you see the options and parameters on the right side of the panel… Among those, you need to scroll all the way to the bottom and find the Registry key named “StartupDelay”.
10. Double-click on it and a new window panel will pop-up.
12. The new window has a field to enter value (and a default value entered already). But before you change the value, you need to change the base from Hexadecimal to Decimal. Take a look at the screenshot below to see what I am talking about:
Now when you change it to Decimal, it displays a different value (480000 instead of 75300).
13. So now, all you need to do is change the value from “480000” to “40000” (forty thousand)
Many people ask me if they can change it to an even smaller value than 40000, but I would not recommend doing that. I tested it and it doesn’t work. I did not feel any difference in boot-up time when I change it to value less than 40000 (and no, you can’t put 0 either).
14. After you’ve completed all the steps above, click “OK” and close the Registry Editor.
And one just one little thing you need to do to finish all this registry tweaking…
15. Restart your computer.
Now you can notice big difference in time that your system takes to boot-up. Mine was faster for 10 seconds than usual. How much faster does your Windows XP boot now? Share in the comments below!

Disable Your computer might be at risk Popup in Windows

Since upgrading to XP SP2 a long time ago, I constantly get nagged by a popup message that tells me my computer might be at risk because I don’t have an antivirus software installed. Here’s how to turn off that annoying message.
Note: You should probably have antivirus software installed.
You will want to open up your control panel, and then open the Security Center icon.
On the left hand side of the security center window, you will see a resources section. Click the bottom link, “Change the way Security Center alerts me”
You can choose which alert to disable here. Since I don’t have antivirus software, I unchecked the bottom checkbox.
No more annoying popups!

Make Windows XP Boot a Lot Faster

There is a simple registry option in the Windows XP Registry that, if not altered, adds a delay time to the the XP boot process. However you can easily set this delay time to zero if you know where to look for it: Open the Windows Registry by entering regedit into a Run… prompt. The registry is parted in two frames, the one on the left containing a large list of keys and sub-keys, the one on the right displaying the keys’ values. In the list of keys, browse the following:
Left-click the ContentIndex-key to see its values, look for StartupDelay and double-click to modify it.
The default value is the hexadecimal number 75300, which is the decimal number 480000. Leave thehexadecimal button active and just change the value to 0 (you can also pick another value; to see which hexadecimal value you have to take for a decimal number, just switch to decimal, enter the value and switch back again).
After making this change, close the registry and reboot Windows to see how fast it has become.

Documents and Settings is not accessible. Error:Access is denied

In Windows XP you had the folder ‘Documents and Settings’ but in Windows Vista and 7 that folder has been replaced to ‘Users’ folder. You will also find ‘Documents and Settings’ in the operating system drive (i.e: C-drive) with a lock sign attached to it, which cannot be accessed. Upon trying to access you get an error “C:\Documents and settings is not accessible, Access is denied”; which is normal.

You may take ownership by following these steps:
Step 1:

a.     Locate the file or folder on which you want to take ownership in windows explorer.
b.     Right click on file or folder and select “Properties” from Context Menu.
c.     Click on Security tab.
d.     Click on “Advance”.
e.     Now click on Owner tab in Advance Security Settings for User windows.
f.      Click on Edit Button and select user from given Change Owner to list if user or group is not in given list then, click on other users or groups. Enter name of user/group and click ok. You can even click on administrator here, if you are logged in as an administrator.
g.     Now select User/group and click apply and ok. (Check “Replace owner on sub containers and objects” if you have files and folder within selected folder)
h.     Click ok when Windows Security Prompt is displayed.
i.      Now Owner name must have changed.
j.      Now click Ok to exist from Properties windows.
k.     Once you have taken the ownership of file or folder.

Step 2:
Grant Permissions to everyone (or your user account) -
a. Go to C: and then click right click on folder and choose properties.
b. Then go to security tab and click Edit then click Add => Advanced.
c. If you click on advanced now click on Find Now and choose everyone and click Ok.
d. Then again click Ok and now click on Allow => Full control => Ok.

DISCLAIMER: Affecting system settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly or may result in loss of data. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuration of ownership settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

Hope this helps!

How To Fix Boot/BCD 0xc000000f Error Windows 7

How To Fix Boot/BCD 0xc000000f Error Windows 7

After rebooting your computer you receive the following error:
Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1.insert windos cd and run a repair your computer option.
File: /boot/bcd
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
You may receive a similar error which lists the error code as 0xc0000034 or missing file: \windows\system32\winload.exe instead.
You may also receive further errors after trying to repair the bcd store using bootrec and bcdedit as follows.
The requested system device cannot be found.
The “Windows Boot Configuration Data File is Missing Required Information
The “Windows Boot Configuration Data File is Missing
An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data

Cause and Fix

The most likely cause of this error is that you tried to dual boot two operating systems and then later decided to remove one. This inadvertently may have deleted the bcd boot store. The trick here is to run the above commands in the right order and set your boot partition to active. Let’s get started.

Make sure your boot partition is set to Active

Boot from your DVD and choose the repair option. From the recovery console type “diskpart” and press enter and then type “list disk” to get a list of physical disks installed.
Running diskpart to fix bcd bood errorIn the example here I only have one disk in my machine, if you have more than one identify the disk which has the Windows boot partition on it and then select it. Select it by typing “select disk 0″ (in my case). Now type “list partition”.The Windows 7 boot partition is a 200 MB primary partition. As you can see here it was on disk 0. Select it by typing “select partition 2″ or whichever number matches your 200MB partition.
Set the partition to ActiveNow type “detail partition” and look where it says “Active”. If it says yes then move onto the next section otherwise type “Active” and press enter, Windows should report the partition is now marked as active. Now reboot and boot into the recovery console again.

Repair the MBR and boot sectors

From the recovery console run these commands in this order:
  • bootrec /fixmbr
  • bootrec /fixboot
Now reboot the machine again into the recovery console and type “bcdboot path to your windows folder“.  Your windows folder will normally be c:\windwows but in the recovery console it may show up as D:\windows so make sure you get the path right. In my case it was “bcdboot d:\windows”. This will will build a new bcd boot store and copy over all boot files needed to boot. Now reboot your machine one last time and it should work. If it doesn’t run the two bootrec commands again.
If you have any additional operating systems you want to add use the bootrec /scanos command.
If you still have issues you may have a system with a GPT disk. In this case you will have an EFI sytem partition that must always be active. See the following if you get Failure when attempting to copy boot files or suspect you have an EFI system.
