How to create a locked folder in Win XP

To create a locked folder we need to create two batch files. The first batchfile will “lock” the folder (actually it will turn the ordinary folder into a link to the Control Panel using an address code), and the other one  will “unlock” it. When someone tries to access that folder, he will be redirect to Control Panel(we can in fact type in any address code so that the user could be redirected to wherever we want). You should hide these batch files, especially the second one.
1. Create a folder, that you will use to store your protected data. For this example, I created a folder called “locked”, and put that folder in My Documents.
create a locked folder
2. Open Notepad and copy this code ren “FOLDERNAMEFOLDERNAME.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
“FOLDERNAME” change in to name of your folder, in this example “FOLDERNAME” is locked.My code looks like this ren locked.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} locked
Save notepad file like lock.bat in My Documents. In option Save as Type, select All Files
create a locked folder
3. Open another notepad file and copy this code ren FOLDERNAME.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} “FOLDERNAME” , Save file as in Step 2, just choose a different filename , like unlock.bat
After this we can see in My Documents something like this:create a locked folder
If we open (double click) lock.bat our folder will turn into a link to Control Panel, and the files will not be visible. until we use unlock.bat

How to Hack Into a Windows XP Computer Without Changing Password

Yesterday I talked about how to “Recover Windows Login password within minutes“. Another method to login to a password protected Windows even if you do not have the password is by making Windows accepting any passwords.
There is a far better way to get into Windows XP. It is easy and it does not reset the password. Hack into a computer running Windows XP without changing the password and find out all and any passwords on the machine (including admin accounts). You do not need access to any accounts to do this. Of course, do not do this on anyone elses computer without proper authorisation.
Bypass Windows Login screen 

Steps to Hack into a Windows XP Computer without changing password:
1. Get physical access to the machine. Remember that it must have a CD or DVD drive.
2. Download DreamPackPL HERE.
3. Unzip the downloaded and you’ll get dpl.ISO.
4. Use any burning program that can burn ISO images.
5. After you have the disk, boot from the CD or DVD drive. You will see Windows 2000 Setup and it will load some files.
6. Press “R” to install DreamPackPL.
7. Press “C” to install DreamPackPL by using the recovery console.
8. Select the Windows installation that is currently on the computer (Normally is “1″ if you only have one Windows installed)
9. Backup your original sfcfiles.dll by typing:
ren C:\Windows\System32\sfcfiles.dll sfcfiles.lld” (without quotes)
10. Copy the hacked file from CD to system32 folder. Type:
copy D:\i386\pinball.ex_ C:\Windows\System32\sfcfiles.dll” (without quotes and assuming your CD drive is D:)
11. Type “exit”, take out disk and reboot.
12. In the password field, type “dreamon” (without quotes) and DreamPack menu will appear.
13. Click the top graphic on the DreamPack menu and you will get a menu popup.
Hack Windows Login Dreamon
14. Go to commands and enable the options and enable the god command.
Bypass and hack user account passwords
15. Type “god” in the password field to get in Windows.
You can also go to Passwords and select “Logon with wrong password and hash”. This option allows you to login with ANY password.
Note: I was unable to bring up the DreamPackPL for the first time because I have Kaspersky Anti-Virus already running in background. I believe most antivirus already labelled this tool as a Hack-Tool. A Hack-Tool is NOT a virus. DreamPackPL helps you bypass the Windows Login screen and it is not destructive.

Automatic Shortcut Viewer For Removable Storage Media In Desktop

You might have seen in Linux based OS like Ubuntu, whenever you insert a removable storage media in to your computer a shortcut to the storage device automatically appears in the desktop. If you are one of those who are keenly interested to get such feature in your Windows 7 or Windows XP or Windows Vista than have a rest on reading this article.

There are some free software that helps you to make this thing really possible. Upon researching various tools like these, I found one of them very useful and worthy to use.

This freeware I am talking about provide the user with automatic shortcuts to their USB and other drives that appear and disappear from the desktop as the user plugs their media in and out. The hero’s name is Desktop Media.

The best thing about this utility is that it uses very small amount of your Randomly Accessed Memory.
Automatic shortcut created
When drive is removed
Besides usual removable media shortcuts you can also add network shortcuts and even shortcut to your fixed drive.
To enable the plug and play shortcut just download and install the 300 KB file from the link below

The system tray icon will always show up in the system tray or notification area.
If you don’t want to see Desktop Media in system tray you can hide it from the options menu. Right click on the Desktop Media icon and choose Options, uncheck Show Tray Icon.
Hope this tutorial was helpful and useful.

When you’re trying to fix a computer or are setting it up for certain functionality for a business, it can be quite annoying always getting error messages when you know what your doing. Today we take a look at disabling those messages in XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
Note: Error Reporting can be valuable if Windows isn’t working correctly and shouldn’t be disabled unless you’re a system admin or power user. This is not recommended for the average home user. 
Error Reporting is enabled by default on XP, Vista, and Windows 7. If an error occurs, a detailed message regarding the error pops up and you’re prompted to send the information to Microsoft. This is so they can gather error info from millions of PC’s and helps them create patches and Service Packs. In some cases it will check the error and provide solutions to fix it. When you’re setting up a machine for specific functionality, the messages get very annoying. There are a number of reasons why an experienced user or tech would want to turn them off, so lets begin.
Disable Error Reporting in Windows 7
Open up the start menu and type in problem reporting settings into the search box, or head to Action Center –> Change Action Center Settings –> Problem Reporting Settings. If you used the search, use the “Choose how to report problems” item in the list:
Then you can easily choose the option from the list:
Again, you probably should leave it enabled, but this will let you disable it.
Disable Error Reporting in Windows 7 with Group Policy
Note: This method used Local Group Policy Editor which isn’t available in Home versions of Windows 7.
Click on Start and enter gpedit.msc into the search box and hit Enter.
Local Group Policy Editor opens and you want to navigate to User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Error Reporting and under Setting double click on Disable Windows Error Reporting.
Change it from Not Configured to Enabled, then click Apply and Ok and close out of Local Group Policy Editor.
