hidden files folders

The steps are :-

Open registry( select run command from start menu and type regedit and then press enter)
In the left pane goto path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware\Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Explorer \Advanced \Folder \Hidden \SHOWALL
Delete the value CheckedValue in the Right pane by right clicking it and selecting delete. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue by right clicking in the Right pane and then selecting new -> DWORD Value and then changing the name to CheckedValue. (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0×00000001) by right clicking the CheckedValue in the Right pane and selecting modify and changing the value data to 1.
This should let you change the “Hidden Files and Folders” option.

speed xp startup

Hack 6: Boot XP Faster

Is Windows XP booting too slowly? Here's how to speed up your boot-time with a quick Registry tweak.

1. Open the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > ContentIndex.

2. In the right pane will be a value called "StartupDelay." Double-click on StartupDelay to open it. Change the "Base" from Hexadecimal to Decimal, and enter 40,000 (the default setting is 480,000).

3. Exit the Registry Editor and restart your computer. Your computer should boot up considerably faster--while this worked for me on my Windows XP laptop, values lower than 40,000 didn't produce a noticeable difference.

Home Cleaning Solutions

From Mary Hunt

Homemade Cleaning Solutions Are Cheap and Green

As politically incorrect as it may sound, I admit to making my own household cleaners to save money, not to avoid toxins or to help clean up the planet. That these concoctions just happen to be “green” alternatives is a terrific bonus.

All of these solutions should be mixed thoroughly in an appropriate container (spray bottle or other container with a tight-fitting lid), labeled clearly and kept out of reach of children. See below for how you can get my complete collection of Cheapskate Solutions, which includes hundreds of recipes for household cleaning, health and beauty, garden and craft solutions.

BLACK LACQUER CLEANER: Strong tea, allowed to cool to room temperature. Dip cloth into the tea and rub the lacquered surface well. Dry well and buff with a soft, clean cloth.

CLEANER FOR PAINTED CABINETS: 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 cup household ammonia, 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1 gallon warm water. Wash cabinets this solution and a sponge. Rinse off with a clean sponge and water. Wipe cabinets completely dry. Note: For stubborn areas, press a hot, damp cloth against grease deposits until they soften. Then, proceed as directed above.

ALL-PURPOSE SPRAY CLEANER: 2 cups rubbing alcohol, 1 tablespoon liquid dishwashing detergent, 1 tablespoon non-sudsing household ammonia, 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Mix in a gallon jug. Fill jug with warm water and shake. Put solution in a spray bottle. Great for cleaning windows, chrome and bath fixtures.

HEAVY-DUTY WINDOW CLEANER: 1/2 cup ammonia, 2 cups rubbing alcohol, 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent, water. Mix ammonia, alcohol and detergent in gallon jug. Fill to top with water. Shake well before each use. This solution is great for cleaning really dirty windows, taking tape marks off windows and for removing soap film from shower doors.

ANTIBACTERIAL SPRAY: 1 quart cool water, 1 teaspoon liquid chlorine bleach. Mix ingredients in a spray bottle. Use this solution to clean and disinfect surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom. Make up in small batches to use immediately. As bleach evaporates, it loses its germ-killing properties.

SKUNK SCENT REMOVER SHAMPOO: 32 ounces hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid. Mix ingredients together in large bottle with cap. Use as shampoo on pets, children and spouses. Rinse well.

VINYL SIDING CLEANER: 2/3 cup Spic and Span, 1/2 cup powdered Tide laundry detergent, 1 quart liquid chlorine bleach, 3 quarts hot water. Mix ingredients in 2 gallon bucket and allow to stand for 4 to 5 hours. Pour into ordinary garden sprayer and apply to vinyl siding. Leave solution on siding for five minutes and rinse with hose.

Cheapskate Solutions, a 60-page resource booklet packed full of formulas and recipes for cleaning solutions, health, beauty, and so much more, is available as a digital download or a printed booklet. The digital download is $5.00; the printed booklet is $7.00. Order online at, by phone at 800-550-3502, or mail your check to Debt-Proof Living, PO Box 2135, Paramount, CA 90723.

high end laptops


Lenovo has unveiled the latest range of ThinkPads, which includes the T420s - a lightweight notebook with a battery life of up to 30 hours.

The PC maker revealed six models on Tuesday: the T420s, T420, T520, L420, L520 and W520. All come with better power management and voice calling features, with the latter boosted by dual array microphones and keyboard noise-reduction technology.

The highlight of the crop though is the T420s, which has a whopping battery life of 30 hours - achieved of course with an extended battery pack
