Tweak up your registry and get rid of trojans
to optimize the Windows performance by removing unwanted programs from
startup using windows registry. Applicable to Windows XP, Vista,
Windows 2000, windows 98 and windows server.I will start
hacking tips with a very useful and easy to do job. Most of us face
this problem of computer slowing down; windows operating system takes
ages to load when started, windows explorer hangs up and also how to
find out whether your computer is infected.
Follow these steps:
- Start and click on run in case of windows XP, Server, windows 98, and 2000 but in vista type directly in search box
2. Type Regedit in the run box to open registry editor
3. Go to file menu and click on export to create a back up of registry,
save it on your drive other than your default windows directory.
Find out the current programs which are starting up with windows After opening Registry editor click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
You will see something like this on right hand pane in your registry editor
Now it’s time to get rid of the programs those slow down your operating
system and possible may be a Trojan horse hiding in your hard disk.
click on any program to delete the entry, which you don’t want to be
loaded during startup; personally I would only keep anti virus program
Now you can repeat the same process with HKEY_LOCAL_USER entries and keep only Cftmon.exe for your computer sound to be working
deleting the unwanted program registry entries, restart the system and
feel the difference in speed. If you are confused about which entries
to be deleted from registry editor or want to know whether it’s a
Trojan or useful program, you can write to me at hackerstips @ gmail . com
