After using Windows all those years i feed with look and feel given by the windows.So i come out and start goooling.......and find those good replacements.....But Before that what is shell...

What is Shell ?
The Windows shell is the main graphical user interface in Microsoft Windows. The Windows shell includes well-known Windows components such as the Taskbar and the Start menu. The process that hosts the Windows shell is Explorer.exe. The Windows shell is not a "shell" in the usual sense of the term, and the word here is used more generally.

Disable Word Document Editing

Multi-user editing is a new feature in Microsoft Office XP. With multi-user editing, you can open a document that is locked for editing by another user.
..............
You can turn off multi-user editing by adding a non-zero value to the
NoPromptToForkDocuments DWORD entry in the following Microsoft Windows registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Options

Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

1. Quit Microsoft Word.
2. Run -->Regedit.
3. In Registry Editor, expand the following subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Options

4. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.


5. In the New Value #1 box, type NoPromptToForkDocuments, and then press ENTER.

6. Right-click the NoPromptToForkDocuments entry, and then click Modify on the shortcut menu that appears.

7. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
8. Quit Registry Editor.

IE Proxy Settings

To setup a proxy settings using registry create a following registry key.Here to get get the proxy ip u can visit samair.ru.There are many other sites which provide proxy ip but this is one of my favourite.

Using Registry :

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
"ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
"ProxyHttp1.1"=dword:00000000
"ProxyServer"="http://ProxyServername:80"
"ProxyOverride"=""



Using I.E itself:

get one proxy ip from samair.ru or any other website.
then

goto Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections -->Lan Settings

Check Select proxy settings for lan
enter u r proxy ip and port there......

Thats it

Happy programming.....

Xp Tricks

Block Websites
Steps
1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
2] Find the file named "HOSTS"
3] Open it in notepad
4] Under "127.0.0.1 localhost" Add 127.0.0.2 www.orkut.com , and that site will no longer be accessable.
5] Done!
example :
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.2 www.orkut.com-
www.orkut.com is now unaccessable
For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip (127.0.0.2) and then the addy like before.
ie:
127.0.0.3 www.yahoo.com
127.0.0.4 www.msn.com
127.0.0.5 www.google.com

Hide System Drives
To disable the display of local or networked drives when you click My Computer.
1. Go to start->run.
2. Type regedit. Now go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Now in the right pane create a new DWORD item and name it NoDrives(it is case sensitive). Now modify it's value and set it to 3FFFFFF (Hexadecimal).

Now restart your computer. So, now when you click on My Computer, no drives will be shown(all gone...). To enable display of drives in My Computer, simply delete this DWORD item that you created. Again restart your computer.

Increase your Net Connection
Desktop->My computer-(right click on)->manage->->Device manager->
now u see a window of Device manager
then go to
Ports->Communication Port(double click on it and Open).

after open u can see a Communication Port properties.
go the
Port Setting:----and now increase ur "Bits per second" to 128000.
and
"Flow control" change 2 Hardware.

Renaming The Start Button:
To rename the start button, you will need a hex editor.
My preference is UltraEdit

Copy the \windows\explore.exe file to a new name (e.g. explorer_1.exe)
With the hex editor, open that file and go to offset 412b6
You will see the word start with blanks between each letter
Edit it be any 5 characters or less
Save the file
Boot to DOS

Copy the existing c:\windows\explorer.exe to explorer.org
Copy explorer_1.exe to explorer.exe
You will also need to replace the explorer.exe in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache file as well with the new one.

Note: If the partition is NTFS and you can't access the files from DOS:

Start Regedit
Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon.
Change the value of Shell from Explorer.exe to explorer_1.exe

Note: Explorer.exe is Default Xp Shell.So first Take Backup of explorer.exe

Disable Net with Command Prompt:

ipconfig /release all
Or
ipconfig /release *con*

Lock ur pc..
open notepad copy and paste the script below and save it .VBS extention
This wil create a shortcut.. run(click) it

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(wshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop") & "\LockWorkstation.lnk")
oShellLink.TargetPath = "%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe"
oShellLink.Arguments = "user32.dll,LockWorkStation"
oShellLink.Save

This will create a icon on u desktop known as Lockworkstation.Click on it to locak pc
Dont want to do this also then press
Windows+L (lock System)

Reset Xp To Original Settings
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /verbose

Want to Edit Registry
Many times it happens that virus disables the Taskmanager.At such situation to try to open regedit but it also disabled..at such situation wat to do ,no worry this single line will enable taskmanager without lauching registry

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

this will enable Taskmanager
Enable registry also
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Sms Sending Application:Resources



Want to Develop Sms Sending Application:Resources

Sms:Short Messaging Service.If any developer or non developer wants to develope and desktop application for sending sms then follow are some of the good resources to develop same.


Microsoft SMS Sender(Free Application)

Microsoft SMS Sender is a piece of free Windows software that can be used to send SMS text messages from a computer via a GSM mobile phone. Localized versions are available in more than 20 languages, including Arabic, simplified Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish. One major limitation of Microsoft SMS Sender is that it cannot receive SMS messages from the cell phone. Besides, it does not support message formats other than ordinary SMS text messages. For example, concatenated SMS messages, flash SMS messages, MMS messages, ring tones and logos are not supported.

Gnokii (For Developers and Non Also)

Gnokii is a free and open source command line tool that can be used to send and receive SMS messages through a mobile phone or GSM modem. It can also be used to read and write entries of the phone book and calendar, handle logos, load ring tones, etc. In addition, the Gnokii project contains a modem driver called gnokiid, which allows you to use some old Nokia mobile phones (for example, Nokia 5110 and Nokia 6110) that do not support AT commands as ordinary AT-compatible modems.
Gnokii works fine with mobile phones that support AT commands. Gnokii supports a lot of mobile phone models from Nokia, even some of those that use Nokia's proprietary protocol instead of AT commands for communicating with a computer. A list of the mobile phones and GSM modems supported by Gnokii can be found on its web site.
If you are not an SMS software developer, you may want to use XGnokii or Gnocky instead of the command-line program. XGnokii and Gnocky provide a good-looking and intuitive GUI, which is easier to use than the command-line program. XGnokii is included in the Gnokii package, while Gnocky can be downloaded separately from the Gnokii web site. Some screenshots of XGnokii and Gnocky can be found at here.
If you are an SMS software developer and would like to write a program to send and receive SMS messages via a mobile phone or GSM modem from a computer, you may find Gnokii useful. By making use of the functions of Gnokii, you do not need to learn how to program with AT commands in order to control the mobile phone or GSM modem. It is easy to write a script or program to drive the command-line Gnokii in the background. Another choice is to use libgnokii, the back-end library that provides basic functions to Gnokii.

Gammu

Like Gnokii, Gammu is a free and open source command line tool that can be used to send and receive SMS messages from a computer via a mobile phone or GSM modem. Gammu was started based on Gnokii's experience but it evolves independently. Besides sending and receiving SMS messages, Gammu can be used to perform many different tasks such as reading and writing entries of the phone book and calendar, handling logos, loading ring tones, managing bookmarks, changing WAP settings, making data calls, etc.
Gammu supports mobile phones that can work in AT command mode. Like Gnokii, Gammu supports lots of Nokia mobile phones, even some of those that use Nokia's proprietary protocol instead of AT commands for communicating with a computer. A list of the mobile phones and GSM modems supported can be found on Gammu's web site.
If you are not an SMS software developer, you may want to use Wammu instead of the command-line Gammu. Wammu is a program developed with wxPython. It provides a good-looking and intuitive GUI, which is easier to use than Gammu. Some screenshots of Wammu can be found at here.
If you are an SMS software developer and want to write a program to send and receive SMS messages from a computer via a mobile phone or GSM modem, you may find Gammu useful. By making use of the functions of Gammu, you do not need to learn about AT commands in order to control the mobile phone or GSM modem. It is easy to write a script or program to drive the command-line Gammu in the background. Another choice is to use LibGammu, the back-end library that provides basic functions to Gammu.
In addition, you can find two pieces of software, Python-Gammu and Gammu+, on Gammu's web site. Python-Gammu is a Python module that allows software developers to get access to Gammu's functions in Python scripts. Gammu+ is a C++ version of Gammu. Gammu+ and Gammu are released under different licenses.

gsmlib and xgsmlib

gsmlib is an open source and free library that works under a variety of OSs such as Linux, FreeBSD and MS Windows. You can use it to send and receive SMS messages with a PC through a GSM mobile phone or GSM modem. You can also use it to read/write SMS messages and phone book entries from/to the SIM card or store of a mobile phone. Besides the library, some command line tools that give access to the functions of the library are available.
gsmlib supports mobile phones that can work in AT mode. Most GSM phones can work in AT mode these days. A list of the mobile phones and GSM modems supported can be found on gsmlib's web site.
If you are not an SMS software developer, you may want to use xgsmlib instead of the command-line tools of gsmlib. xgsmlib is a graphical user interface for gsmlib. It runs under GNOME. Sending and receiving SMS messages with xgsmlib is easier and more intuitive than with gsmlib's command line tools. Some screenshots of xgsmlib can be found at here.
If you are an SMS software developer and need to write a program to send and receive SMS messages from a computer via a mobile phone or GSM modem, you can directly link the gsmlib library to your program and call its functions. In this way, you do not need to learn how to program with AT commands in order to control the mobile phone or GSM modem. Another way is to write a script or program to drive gsmlib's command line programs in the background.


Kannel

Kannel is a famous, powerful, open source and free SMS gateway and WAP gateway. You can use it to connect to a mobile operator's SMS center (SMSC), or using a GSM mobile phone or GSM modem as a virtual SMS center. Kannel can handle multiple SMS centers and virtual SMS centers. You can specify the SMS center or virtual SMS center that an SMS message should be routed to. This feature is useful in situations such as when you have multiple SMS center/virtual SMS center connections and some of them are cheaper or faster to deliver SMS messages.
Kannel supports the use of AT-capable mobile phones as virtual SMS centers. Most GSM mobile phones are capable to work with AT commands these days. A small list of mobile phones and GSM modems that are known to work as virtual SMS centers with Kannel is available on its web site.
The SMSC access protocols supported by Kannel include SMPP, CIMD, UCP / EMI and SMS2000 / OIS. In addition, Kannel has an HTTP / HTTPS interface that you can use to send and receive SMS messages.
As Kannel is a complex program with lots of functions, it may be hard to use for beginners.

OpenSMPP API

OpenSMPP API is an open source and free Java API. It can be used to communicate with an SMS center (SMSC) or SMS gateway using the SMPP (Short Message Peer to Peer) protocol. SMS software developers can use this library to connect to an SMSC or SMS gateway and send/receive SMS messages. OpenSMPP API was formerly known as Logica SMPP API since it was originally developed by Logica (an SMSC vendor). Later Logica did not maintain the API any more, but you can still find their web site at http://opensmpp.logica.com/ (note that the web site has not been updated for a long time). Now the SMS Forum develops and maintains the API. (The SMS Forum is a non-profit organization that controls the development of the SMPP protocol.)

SMPP Client Test Tool (SCTT) (After clicking on this link, you will see the SMS Forum Terms and Conditions. Accept it and you will see a form. In the "Select Item" combo box, choose one of the three "SMPP Client Test Tool" items, e.g. "SMPP Client Test Tool (Linux)".)
SMPP Client Test Tool is a free SMSC simulator provided by the SMS Forum (a non-profit organization that is now responsible for the development of the SMPP protocol). You can use it to test an SMPP client (e.g. your SMS messaging application) without a real SMSC or SMS gateway. The SMPP Client Test Tool can be run on three platforms: Linux, Solaris and HP-UX.

SMPPSim

Like SCTT, SMPPSim is a free SMSC simulator. You can use it to test your SMPP application without a real SMSC or SMS gateway. SMPPSim has a web-based graphical user interface (screenshots 1, screenshots 2). As SMPPSim is written in Java, it can be run on Java-capable platforms such as Microsoft Windows and Linux.

SMSLib (jSMSEngine)

SMSLib is an open source and free library for Java and Microsoft .NET. SMSLib for Java was formerly called jSMSEngine. With SMSLib, you can easily write a Java or .NET program to send and receive SMS messages from a computer via a GSM mobile phone or GSM modem without learning AT commands. If you write your SMS software in Java, you can take advantage of Java's code portability feature -- your SMS software can be executed in many different operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac OS. SMSLib supports concatenated SMS messages and flash SMS messages, but it does not support ring tones and logos.
SMSLib supports mobile phones that can work in AT mode. Most GSM mobile phones can work in AT mode these days.
Developing SMS software with SMSLib for dotNet requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SDK. For SMSLib for Java, it is recommended to use J2SE SDK 5.0, since the author of SMSLib wrote and tested SMSLib with J2SE SDK 5.0.
The SMSLib package contains a standalone SMS application called SMSServer. It uses SMSLib as its back-end library. You can use SMSServer to send/receive SMS messages without developing your own program. For example, you can prepare an XML file with the SMS messages you want to send, give the XML file to SMSServer and SMSServer will send the SMS messages out automatically.

GSMI/GSMD::Gnokii

GSMI/GSMD::Gnokii is a Perl module for Gnokii. Gnokii's readme file includes a brief description of it. Perl programmers can use this Perl module to get access to Gnokii's functions.

Webservicex.net
This is one of the cool and free Wcf service avaliable in net using which usercan send sms.
