Question 7 : Improving the Slow Boot up time:

Answer 7 : There are a variety of reasons why your windows XP system would boot slowly. Most of the times it this has to do with the startup applications. If you would like to speed up the bootup sequence, consider removing some of the startup applications that you do not need. Easiest way to remove startup apps is through System Configuration Utility. Go to Start then Run and enter MSCONFIG and go to the Startup tab. Deselect/UnCheck application(s) that you do not want to startup at boot time.


Answer 8 : You will need the following.. Windows 2000 / XP # Basic Knowledge of the Command Prompt # WinRar 1. Gather your image and the files you wish to lodge into it. Here I have a meeting.txt which I will hide inside my toshow.jpg. 2. Add the files you want to hide into a new RAR archive. (so meeting.txt.rar created newly) 3. Open Command Prompt and go to the folder where your files are located, e.g., 'C:\hidden'. 5. At command prompt type 'copy /b toshow.jpg + meeting.txt.rar lizard.jpg' (without quotes). (toshow.jpg is the picture I want to show, meeting.txt.rar is the file to be hidden, and lizard.jpg is the file which contains both. 6. Now test the lizard.jpg by double clicking it, and verifying it still opens. 7. Now try opening that same lizard.jpg file from menu: file->open of WinRar. It will show the original hidden file meeting.txt.

Question 9 : Perform a Boot Defragment

Answer 9 : There's a simple way to speed up XP startup: make your system do a boot defragment, which will put all the boot files next to one another on your hard disk. When boot files are in close proximity to one another, your system will start faster. On most systems, boot defragment should be enabled by default, but it might not be on yours, or it might have been changed inadvertently. To make sure that boot defragment is enabled on your system, run the Registry Editor and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction Edit the Enable string value to Y if it is not already set to Y. Exit the Registry and reboot. The next time you reboot, you'll do a boot defragment.
