today, i found a new security hole in windows XP which is very important to all the admins of winXP.Its very easy to bypass the windows XP Admin logon window. When u started yr computer , u got a message something like that: Admin or (whatever u make a account!!!) Password: ….. XXX XXXX……… some people think that its impossible to break through this, but through this article u can make it easy to break this cripy. In order to break the Windows XP admin logon , you simply boot yr computer through Windows 2000 CD and boot up a windows XP box and start windows 2000 recivery Console, its a troubleshooting program. Windows XP then allows us to operate victim’s computer as an Administrator without a admin password, even if the Administrator account has a strong password. You can also operate other user accounts that may be present on, even if those accounts have passwords. Finally u can do anything u want on the victim’s computer, copy/delete the files whatever u want . {Extracts frm an article by }

9) Remove program from your desktop

Whenever you have to remove any software/package/program you have to go to control panel then add/remove programe and for that either go to my computer or start menu. My way is the sleekest one. All you have to do is make a new shortcut on ur desktop and set its target to “control.exe appwiz.cpl” there id space between control.exe and appwiz.cpl and write without quotes. this simply would launch Addremove programs wizard.

10) Shutdown Button on Desktop

Right click on ur Desktop and create new Shortcut and type “C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Shutdown.exe –s” without quotes in the popup box which will appear asking for a path of shortcut . Now when u will double click this shortcut it will give u shutdown message and ur computer will shutdown after some seconds. U can customize ur shutdown button with same icon which original shutdown have Just go to the properties of ur shortcut and click change icon tab select any icon u like and click apply. Similarly u can also put restart button on ur desktop just replace –s in above line by –r If u don’t want shutdown button on ur desktop u can the go to start >run and type Shutdown –s or –r they will do the same job. If someone tries to shutdown u remotely on the net then u can stop shutdown process but typing shutdown –a in Run. Shutdown –s = Shutdown & restart Shutdown –r = Restart Shutdown –a = To abort shutdown

11) Remove Hibernation File

If you do not use hibernation, make sure you do not have it enabled, which reserves disk space equal to your RAM. If you have a hidden file on the root directory of your C-drive called hiberfil.sys, hibernation is enabled. To remove that file: Go to Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, Hibernate tab, and uncheck the Enable hibernation box.

12) Free some disk space with XP and some fast.

If you have NTFS partistions then you should stop the indexing service. This service slows your navigation of files. Whenever you click the file the XP adds that to its database for quick search. To turn it off select your all hard disks. Then right click and go to properties. And uncheck “Allow indexing service check Box”.

13) Turn Off AND On System Restore.

The system Restore option is useful for some people but for most people its a sheer wastage of RAM and HDD. So according to me it should be turned off. To Change system restore settings Press Win Key + Pause/Break Key (near num lock). Go to System Restore. and change your settings.

14) Prevent XP from Unauthorized Access

This is the best way to prevent unauthorized access while connected to the internet. Go to my computer properties, and select Remote tab. Uncheck Both the Check Boxes. This help you to prevent your computer from unauthorized access, while connected to the net.

15) Change Drive Letters in Windows XP

When you add drives to your computer, such as an extra hard drive, a CD drive, or a storage device that corresponds to a drive, Windows automatically assigns letters to the drives. However, this assignment might not suit your system; for example, you might have mapped a network drive to the same letter that Windows assigns to a new drive. When you want to change drive letters, follow these steps: Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. Under Computer Management, click Disk Management. In the right pane, you’ll see your drives listed. CD-ROM drives are listed at the bottom of the pane. Right-click the drive or device you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Change, click Assign the following drive letter, click the drive letter you want to assign, and then click OK.

16) Run safely any of downloaded EXE’s.

When ever you download or copy any EXE, do not execute it straight first scan it, and then right click that exe and select Run as and then Select the current user option alongwith, protection option. This is usefull in some cases.
