Windows 7: Desktop and Shutdown Tweaks Combined

Windows Home Edition 32 bit

I had a bad Win 7 OS on my C drive and a good Win 7 OS on my D drive. So I
formatted my C drive but the D drive Win 7 doesn't work so well so am
wondering if I transfer the D Win 7 OS to C drive, that maybe the performance
would improve????

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1

Well, RickyMan,

That's a thousand dollar question.

But I'm afraid that you need to post that question in the general discussion section because it doesn't have anything to do with this tweak but rather system configs and hardware.

I suggest that you fill out your system specs form with more details than Windows home 32 bit because there isn't much you can get when you go to the car shop and say ''my engine won't start it's a V8''.

Gotta know what's under the hood.

Hello Craig,

The items in the REG file stand for and do this below.

NoLowDiskSpaceChecks = Low Disk Notification 

LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo = Determines whether Windows traces shortcuts back 
to their sources when it cannot find the target on the user's system.

NoResolveSearch = Prevents the system from conducting a comprehensive search 
of the target drive to resolve a shortcut.

NoResolveTrack = Prevents the system from using NTFS tracking features to
resolve a shortcut.

NoInternetOpenWith = Specifies whether to use the Microsoft Web service
for finding an application to open a file with an unhandled file association. 

AutoEndTasks = Specifies whether user processes end automatically when 
the user either logs off or shuts down Windows .

HungAppTimeout = Specifies how long the system waits for user 
processes to end after the user clicks the End Task command button in 
Task Manager. 

MenuShowDelay = Specifies the interval from the time the cursor is 
pointed at a menu until the menu items are displayed.

WaitToKillAppTimeout = Specifies how long the system waits for user 
processes to end after the user attempts to log off or to shut down 
Windows. When the time specified in this entry expires, the End 
Task dialog box appears, stating that the process did not respond. 
If the value of AutoEndTasks is 1, the system ends the process

LowLevelHooksTimeout = This tweak changes the time to wait to kill 
a service, which is not responding

WaitToKillServiceTimeout = Determines how long the system waits 
for services to stop after notifying the service that the system is 
shutting down.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Hello, I have installed this. But some of my friends say it can be quite dangerous and say it could make my program's to stop working. Is it true?

The other problem is: I was quite dumb and didn't save my old register...

Hello Amar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is perfectly safe to use if you wanted to. I added step 2 in METHOD ONE to make it easy to undo this and restore the default registry settings.

hungapp > waittokill

Shouldn't HungAppTimeout be greater than WaitToKillAppTimeout?

Do you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not combined?
Hi, i want to know and why if you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not? One good thing about keeping them combined is that it makes it look neater and in a way gives you more room to add to the taskbar and perhaps the only downfall is the buttons are not labeled.
