Hide Hard Drives Partitions(C:,D:,E: etc.)

This is a great trick you can play on your friends. To disable the display
of local or networked drives when you click My Computer.
1.Go to start->run.Type regedit.Now go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mic rosoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
Now in the right pane create a new DWORD item and name it NoDrives(it is case sensitive). Now modify it's value and set it to 3FFFFFF
(Hexadecimal) .Now restart your computer. So, now when you click on
My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone...). To enable display of
drives in My Computer, simply delete this DWORD item that you created.
Again restart your computer.You can now see all the drives again.

Open Run and then type "gpedit.msc".
Now goto User Configuration > Administrative templates > Windows Component > Windows Explorer.
Click on Windows Explorer you will find the 3rd option on the right side of screen "Removes the Folder Option menu item from the Tools
Just check it, if it is not configured then change it to enable by double clicking on it and after applying again set it to not configured.
I hopes that you will find the option after restarting windows.

2. Save the file with the .reg extension.

Disabling Balloon Tips:

1. Start Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mic rosoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Advanced\
3. Create a DWORD value of EnableBalloonTips
4. Give it a value of 0


just Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes.
This opens the group policy editor. Then go to:
Local Computer Policy
then Computer Configuration
then Administrative Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler
and then to Limit Reservable Bandwidth.
Double click on Limit Reservable bandwidth. It will say it is not configured,
but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."By default, the Packet
Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a
connection, but you can use this setting to override the default."
So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then set it to ZERO.
This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%......

Dear Mr Anush Kumar

I personally thank you very much for the useful tricks. I really was affected "This copy of windows did not pass Genuine windows valediction" statement which appears on my right bottom side of my screen and it happens to disappear my screen savers often. But I tried your trick fully and it did not work, I think. Even after I did (copy and past) it shows the same screen even after restarting. Should I make the "Windows security alerts" to "ON" position.

After downloading from the Microsoft site then only will it be clear? I mean to say "The copy of windows....valediction" statement.

I copied from "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 .........................4a,46 ,53,f3,17" I hope it is OK. I request you to suggest that the copy and paste matter can be in a different colour so that we can easily identify.

What is the use of Bandwidth on a computer. Kindly explain.

Thank you very very much
V Jothiprakash

Kindly inform me accordingly.

This will work on places where there are many computer placed next to each other.

You can:

Interchange the keyboard / mouse cable of two computers.
For old computers that has ps/2 cable connected to their cabinet, you can put the keyboard cable to mouse port and vice versa.. Now every time the computer boot it will show an error massage of device not found.
Stick a tape to the bottom sensor of mouse.
Edit the mouse setting, by default right clicks is primary click used mainly for selection. And if you make the right click his left click and vice versa, this will drive him nuts. He will eventually figure it out but until it will be fun watching it.
