Task manager disabled

My friend called me up & asked to solve his problem.Task manager on his PC got disabled automatically.Initially, I thought he has installed some new software(he installs something or other regularly)but later I found that there was some program that has changed it to prevent its detection.May be, U too might be facing the same , I m writing the steps that can enable task manager again.

1. Go to "Start" -> "Run" -> Write "Gpedit.msc" and press on "Enter" button.
2. Navigate to "User Configuration" -> "Administrative Templates" -> "System" -> "Ctrl+Alt+Del Options"
3. In the right side of the screen verity that "Remove Task Manager"" option set to "Disable" or "Not Configured".
4. Close "Gpedit.msc" MMC.
5. Go to "Start" -> "Run" -> Write "gpupdate /force" and press on "Enter" button.


Happy now,just after enabling it.Scan your PC with updated anti-virus.Also, go through task manager to find the program that is running in background .hen u find such program search for that executable program through search feature & if that program is stored some where in unusual location other than c:’windows or Program files.Than u know what u have to do........;-)

How to get rid of spammers

This is some what easy method.It is based on the service provided by You can create a temporary e-mail address that will forward all incoming mail to your usual e-mail address. Simply enter your e-mail address and the life time of your spambox and they will generate you a temporary e-mail.

5. Double click on the following value:


6. Change the value to whatever you wish.

  4. Open the CLSID folder
  5. Open the {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} folder
  6. Open the ShellFolder folder

Recover Outlook Password

I was going through a site which provides the tool to recover password for ms outlook file .pst (data file ).Its completely free.

System Requirements

This utility can recover the PST passwords of Outlook 97, Outlook 2000, Outlook XP, Outlook 2003, and Outlook 2007. You don't have to install MS-Outlook in order to use this utility. You only need the original PST file that you locked with a password.

Password Encryption in PST File

The password encryption in the PST file is very weak, and for each password-protected PST file, there are many passwords that can open it.
PstPassword provides 3 different passwords for each password-protected PST file. It's possible that one of them will be the original password that you typed, and it's also possible that none of these passwords will be identical to the original one. However, all 3 passwords provided by PstPassword will open the PST file without problems.

Is your PC slowing down!

If your computer seems slower than it used to be, it probably is. My one-year old Dell laptop is much slower now than when it was new. Over time, computers get slower for a variety of reasons: files become disorganized, unnecessary software consumes resources, unused network drives slow startup, or too many programs automatically run at startup. Larger, serious issues can dramatically slow your computer's performance too. You may have a virus or need to troubleshoot problems by clean booting.

Remove Autostart Programs

The next step in restoring your computer's performance is to identify any unnecessary programs that start automatically. Often, programs configure themselves to run in the background so that they appear to start quickly when needed. Some of these programs show an icon on your taskbar to let you know that they're running, while others are completely hidden. These autostart programs probably won't noticeably slow down your computer as it starts up, but they will steal away trace amounts of memory and processing time as your computer runs.

Windows XP comes with the System Configurationtool (Msconfig.exe), an excellent way to manage the startup process. To start it:


Click Start, click Run, type Msconfig, and then press Enter.


On the Startup tab, you'll see a list of all the programs and processes that are set to run when Windows XP loads.


Speed up your overall start time by clearing the check box next to any item you think you don't need.


Click Apply, and then restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Disconnect Unused Network Connections

If you've ever had a network with more than one computer, you probably found it useful to share files between the computers by mapping a network drive. Network drives allow one computer to read and write files to another computer's hard disk as if it were directly connected. I use network drives all the time, and for me, they were the most significant source of slowness.

The problem with network drives is that Windows XP will attempt to connect to the network drives when Windows starts. If the remote computers don't respond immediately, Windows will wait patiently. Additionally, some programs will attempt to connect to the network drives when you browse for files and folders. If you've ever tried to open a file and had to wait several seconds (or minutes!), it's probably because the program was trying to establish a network connection—even if the file you are opening is on your local computer.

I am not as patient as Windows, and I'd rather not wait for unused network connections to respond. To reduce this problem, disconnect any unused drives by following these steps:


Open My Computer.


On the Tools menu, click Disconnect Network Drive.


Select the network drives that you no longer need, and then click OK.

Defragment Your Computer
You need administrator privileges to defragment a drive or volume. Although fragmentation is complicated, it's easy to defragment your computer by following these steps:


Open My Computer, right-click Local Disk, and then click Properties.


On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now. The Disk Defragmenter opens.

3.Click your first hard disk, and then click Defragment.
4.If you have more than one hard disk, repeat this process for each hard disk

Free Up Wasted Space

Removing unused programs is a great way to free up disk space, which will speed up your computer. Another way to find wasted disk space is to use the Disk Cleanup tool by following these steps:


Open My Computer, right-click Local Disk, and then click Properties.


On the General tab, click the Disk Cleanup button. Disk Cleanup will spend a few minutes examining your disk.

3.Select the desired check boxes in the Files to Delete list, and then click OK. Disk Cleanup will spend several minutes clearing space.
