Windows Vista - Utilities, Tweaks, Knowledge and fixes
- Vista will not go to sleep: Search, find and install the "HID non user input data filter"
- Temporary disable Vista's UAC:
Create batch file with the 2 lines below:
Taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
/F means that the task is
killed forcefully, and /IM stands for the image name,
i.e. the file name of the process. Be careful with the
second line. I had a typo in it which left me with an
empty desktop. In such a case you can launch
explorer.exe with the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT-DEL -> File
-> New Task (Run…)).
You have to run this batch
file with admin privileges (right click on it and
navigate to “Run as administrator”). The UAC prompt will
just be displayed once. After that you won’t see it
again in this session. Note that not only those
applications where its icon contains a UAC shield will
be launched automatically with admin privileges, but
also those programs which should never be elevated
(Internet Explorer for example).
- Disable Hibernate in Vista: From CMD, under admin privilege, type:
PowerCFG -H OFF or ON
- Restore language bar in Vista: When
language bar does not whow: This problem seems to be
related to a bug in the task scheduler. Here's how I
fixed it in my system:
Start task scheduler (Administrative tools) and
select View -> Show hidden tasks.
Go to Task Scheduler Library/Microsoft/Windows/TextServicesFramework,
where you should find a task named MsCtfMonitor.
This task should run at user logon, so check the
history tab looking for any errors. If you run this
task manually you'll probably get the language bar
back until you log off.
If everything seems ok but still no language bar
after a reboot, then start regedit and go to
Under this key is a set of GUIDs that should
correspond to existing tasks under the key
On my system there were a few keys that did not have
corresponding values under tasks. Backup the key,
remove any bad entries, then reboot.
My guess is that the scheduler finds a bad task key
at logon and stops without running any remaining
- Create System Restore points, previous Versions.
Use this file, and
schedule it in your Vista's task scheduler.
- When double click on a folder, it opens in its own window.
Open CMD, Run this : regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
