2. Lock Windows to protect computer
You
can lock Windows to protect the computer when leaving the station
easily by creating a shortcut with the path rundll32.exeuser32.dll,
LockWorkStation. The Windows key + L is also a shortcut to this feature.

3. Edit sysoc.inf to list all software
To
show all software that can be removed from your computer (including
protected Windows services), you can manually edit (using notepad for
example) the sysoc.inf file located in Windows\inf\. Just remove the
word hide next to the software pack.
*Note* - use this at your own risk. Removing critical components of the system will make Windows instable.

4. Windows XP comes with IPv4 and IPv6
Windows
XP comes both IPv4 and IPv6 support. To enable IPv6, you can install
the protocols needed with the command "ipv6 install" in the
command-prompt. Then type ipv6 /? to see the options. The installation
will not remove the IPv4 protocols so your current configuration will
still work.

5. Access Task Manager with shortcut
To access the Task Manager easier, you can make a shortcut that points to %windir%\system32\taskmgr.exe.

6. Stop treating ZIP files like Folders
If
you don't want your Windows XP to treat ZIP files like folders, you can
disable this component by running regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll at the
command prompt or Run dialog. If you start missing it, you can enable it
by typing regsvr32 zipfldr.dll.

7. Run program as diffrent user
You can run a program as a different user. Right click an application and select Run As command.

8. Switch users leaving applications opened
You
can switch users leaving the applications opened too (*NOTE* use this
only when needed since it could lead to system instability).

Go to Task Manager - processes and end the process explorer.exe.
This will end only your session and not all applications.
Then
go to Applications tab, click New task and type runas
/user:Domainname\username explorer.exe. A password prompt will appear to
login to the desired username. The user's session will start, with all
your previously applications running.
I recommend to open first a command-line prompt and type runas /? to see all the options available.

9. Rename multiple files in Windows at once
Rename
multiple files in Windows at once. Select them all, right click and
select Rename. Enter the desired name. They will be renamed using what
you specified, with a number in brackets to distinguish them.

10. Task kill feature in Windows
Windows
has a task kill feature similar to Linux. Go to a command prompt and
run the command tasklist to see running processes with PID numbers. Then
type tskill to end the specific task. This forces an instant closing of
the task.


11. Edit features with GPEDIT.MSC
You can edit many features by running gpedit.msc. You can add log on/log off scripts here and many features.

12. Edit accounts in the command prompt
You can edit accounts by running "control userpasswords2" at the command prompt.

13. Use systeminfo.exe to see System Information
You
can use the systeminfo.exe command in the command prompt to see System
Information, including all Windows updates and hotfixes.

14. Disable system services for maximum performance
There
are system services that you can disable to free up the system's load.
To access the interface that permits you to make changes to system's
services, type services.msc and the command prompt.
This is a list of services that are *usually* useless and can be safely disabled.
Alerter
Application Layer Gateway Service,
Application Management
Automatic Updates
Background Intelligent Transfer
Clipbook
Distributed Link Tracking Client
Distributed Transaction Coordinater
Error Reporting Service
Fast User Switching Compatibility
IMAPI CD-Burning
Indexing Service
IPSEC Services
Messenger
Net Logon
Net Meeting
Remote Desktop Sharing
Network DDE
Network DDE DSDM
Portable Media Serial Number
Remote Desktop Help Session Manager
Remote Registry
Secondary Logon
Smartcard
SSDP Discovery Service
Uninterruptible Power Supply
Universal Plug and Play Device Host
Upload Manager
Webclient
Wireless Zero Configuration
WMI Performance Adaptor

*NOTE*:
Make sure you don't need them since some applications you're using
could depend on them. If you make any application to fail by disabling
any of the services, go back and enable it again.

15. Repair Windows XP by using the XP installation CD
If
your system failes to start due to an error related to missing HAL.DLL,
invalid Boot.ini or any other critical system boot files you can repair
this by using the XP installation CD. Simply boot from your XP Setup CD
and enter the Recovery Console. Then run "attrib -H -R -S" on the
C:\Boot.ini file and delete it. Run "Bootcfg /Rebuild" and then Fixboot
