Could be useful but it is well to remember that is an unofficial trick which could be disabled at any time.

Have seen it before but this might prompt me to give it a whirl on my old XP.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes I did wunder if it might get "phyxed" by M$-land if it becomes too popular... Mind you they have a lot to answer for in many eyes... Their continuing efforts to force users to upgrade massive systems - purely to generate more money for M$-land - hasn't been too well regarded; especially after the recent ransomware attack, and the effects that had on the NHS at least...

The cost of upgrading NHS kit is humungous; likewise for many other outfits... And I can't see the NHS being willing spend at this time?

Hadn't realised it is "olde" trick though...

I think XP was a victim of its own success. Not sure whether XP or Win 7 will win the cup on longest lived system. You are right about MS feathering their own desks but don't all of those massive outfits....

Haven't tried yet but the reg file won't work as the backslashes are missing (as one comment mentioned).

Use the one on here instead:

Also follow the links and note the warnings.
