By compiler:

This compilation of Tips is from my own database that I have been collecting from various resources on the web for several years. I am the author of none of these tips, Some of these tips I have used, others I find interesting but have not used.
I have however compiled them into the WinOrganizer/GoldenSection Notes format, for the ease of use and explorer type interface that makes it very fast and easy to find what you're looking for.

This tip works on ALL Windows 95/98/ME and NT4/2000 systems with MS Internet Explorer 4/5/6 installed.
This Registry tip speeds up internet/remote (using Windows Explorer and/or Internet Explorer) browsing process considerably on most MS Windows 32-bit machines connected to a network and/or remote computer(s).
This actually fixes a BUG in MS Windows OSes that scan shared (remote) folders/files across the network for Scheduled Tasks, and can add a delay as long as 30 seconds (!), because it uses extra time to search the remote computer(s). :(
To do this, open Regedit (Win95/98/ME) or Regedt32 (WinNT4/2000) and go to:

Highlight this value:


and delete it: right-click on it -> select Delete -> click OK.

RECOMMENDED: Export (BACKUP) this Registry key to a REG file FIRST, to be able to restore it (by running the REG file) if necessary. In Regedit: highlight the key name in the left hand pane -> click "Registry" from the menu -> select "Export Registry File..." -> type a file name in the "File name" field -> browse to the destination of your choice -> push the Save button.

This Registry change takes effect immediately.
Just start MS IE while connected to the network/internet to see the difference.

NOTE: Upgrading to a newer MS Internet Explorer release may add this key to your Registry during Setup, therefore you may need to delete it again after installing MS IE.
