Windows 7: Hidden 'Rundll' commands for Win7

Hidden 'Rundll' command lines for Win7! :)

Just finished ripping right through the Windows 7 registry in a bid to find some 'true' hidden commands that are stashed away in there and here is my findings folk. They will work from either a batch file or the run box depending on how you wish to use them.

Most of these will work with older windows and should appear familiar to some of you, they are also NOT listed on other sites for Windows 7 yet and I also have tried and tested each one with 7, Have fun with them and if you like them don't forget to rep me!

I think I just worn down my F3 keys lifespan for the 'find next...' function of the registry!

I apollogise if this should be in a different section of the forums, and I wasn't sure if to post it as a tutorial or not. Feel free to move it Admin or Moderators if there is a better suited place for this.
