New simple Windows hacks

I have some secret Windows tips and tricks here. Many are problems which you may encounter, but for which Windows does not provide a ready made solution.

Display a banner each time Windows boots

1. Start -> Run
2. Type regedit
3. Go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WinLogon
4. Create a new string value in the right pane named LegalNoticeCaption and enter the value that you want to see in the menubar
5. Create a new string value and name it LegalNoticeText. Modify it and insert the message you want to display each time Windows boots.

Shutting down Windows the fastest way

1. Start -> Run
2. Type rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows

Internet Explorer
Your browser logo shows something other than the IE logo. Maybe you have installed your ISP software and you have a different logo on the top right. How do you remove it?

1. Close all browser windows
2. Start -> Run
3. Type RunDLL32.EXE IEdkcs32.dll,Clear
4. Click on OK, and start Internet Explorer. You should find the old spinning IE logo.
