There may be times when you have installed Windows 7 and then you felt the need of Windows XP also. So finally you decide to dual boot windows 7 with windows xp. If you install windows xp, then there won’t be any option to boot into windows 7. So now you’ll need to restore the bootloader of Windows.

Follow these steps (with acute care):

  1. Install Windows XP in a different partition (other than Windows 7)
  2. After installing, bootloader will be gone. Don’t worry, that’s bound to happen. Because Windows XP writes its bootloader over Windows 7.
  3. Insert Windows 7 DVD and boot from it and click on “Repair my computer”.
  4. In the next step, click on “Command Prompt”
  5. Type these commands:

bootrec /fixmbr (press enter)
Bootrec /fixboot (press enter)

So that’s done. Restart the Computer and you will see that the Windows 7 bootloader will be restored. If not, then install EasyBCD.

  1. Install EasyBCD and start this utility
  2. Click on Add New Entry
  3. Now simply select the type and change the name as per your wish and click on Add Entry and then click on Save


EasyBCD

This is an amazing utility, which can help you very much in this. Through this, you can even change the timeout to show operating systems, select the default OS, move up and down entries and much more. What’s more, this is just 1.3 MB in size. Go ahead and use this nifty utility. After doing this, just restart the PC and you will be able to see two options, XP and 7 🙂

Whenever I open Run and type regedit and press enter a messageprompt appears saying Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator“.

Let’s see how can we fix it.Here i got 3 Methods to fix this Problem which i have collected them from Net.

Method 1:

You can use a simple UnHookExec.inf to enable registry editing.

1. Download UnHookExec.inf
2. Right click on the downloaded file and select install.

Method 2:

For enabling you can also use the remove restrictions tool(RRT) by Sergiwa.com, if the method 1 doesn’t work for you.

1. First Download Remove Restrictions Tool
2. Run and check the registry tools and click apply.

Method 3:

If the above two methods does not work for you , you can also try executing a small vbscript which I found on major geeks.

1. First Download EnableRegEdit.vbs
2. Double click on the downloaded file to enable registry editing.

I hope at least one of the above will help to fix the trouble.

How To Clean Your RAM Using Notepad

 

Cleaning your RAM using notepad

Many friends of me ask where can I download a software which can keep my RAM free? And I found these software are nothing but using some lines of code which can be implemented by using notepad or any editor tool. So if any one does not have any software, you can use it by doing the following things which I am going to mention.

Steps to Clean Your RAM Using Notepad:

Step 1: Open Notepad
Step 2: Type FreeMem=Space(10240000000)
Step 3: Save it as “CLEANER.VBS” in any location you like.
Step 4: You can edit the code and write 512 instead of 1024 if you own a 512mb RAM or change to anything you like.
Step 5: Run it !

After this final step your RAM will be free.

Hope you enjoyed it. :)
