Hi All :) ,

I want to be able to create some unattended registry keys that will be capable of turning off & on services and components.

could someone provide some basic instruction on how you would go about this & some freeware utils to undertake .reg keys for XP Home.

Regards & Best Wishes,

ispy :)

I'm wb orientated so I would recommend it as a freeware tool to disable those services.

Since you do not need to remove the services but rather disable them, then you might as well use scripts with options to match the user preferences.

wb can also run during the unattended install portion of windows XP to apply your registry modifications.

Without uninstalling anything, you only need to modify the "start" key of the respective service and a .reg file is also a good solution.

Look here for an example of a .reg file:
;Disable Quality of Service Packet Scheduler

&#91;HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\PSched&#93;

&#34;Start&#34;=dword&#58;00000004

source:
http://www.msfn.org/...php/t39776.html


From memory I'm not sure about the possible "Start" values, maybe some other member can help and provide the missing details.

Good luck.

:)

Hi Nuno/rawral :) ,

Many thanks for the reply & advice, I seem to have dropped lucky on this occasion & have found the relevant keys albeit they will need tweaking a touch ("Start"=dword:0000000X just alter 'X' to whatever you want 2=Auto, 3=Manual, 4=Disabled but be careful [Novices] as XP Needs certain services set to auto or it could damage your system!) & are listed as follows:

All these services can also be "Tweaked" in Nlite also to preset the users choices! On top of this I have found a nifty util on MSFN which probably some will know about But I will post the details elsewhere & edit this post later on as it is related to this post (Freeware & portable) :) .

Hi Nuno/rawral :) ,

Many thanks Guys for the replies!

@ Nuno - No problem only to pleased to help
@ rawral - Great utils, went to NirSoft for regscanner found these in addition to regscanner, free & portable Kewl:
@ Peter - & last but not least psc for "reg2WBS, .reg to WinBuilder script," nice one!

1) RegFromApp - Generate RegEdit .reg file from Registry changes made by application.
2) RegDllView - View registered dll/ocx/exe files on your system and unregister/delete unwanted registrations.
3) CleanAfterMe - Clean Registry entries and files in your system

From: http://www.nirsoft.n...regscanner.html

I particularly like number 1) RegFromApp I think this will prove very useful in the future!

Regards & Respect,

ispy :)
