Do you use the Run feature in Windows XP?

For most, this feature remains unused (or


rarely used). Why is that? Well, first off nearly all of the Run Commands Correspond to a
particular Control Panel Item or a Utility, Tool or Task that can be accessed through
Windows. There are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had that
can be accessed through the Run feature. The main reason most people don’t use the Run
feature is because they don’t know the Commands. So, to solve that problem, I decided to
put together the following listing, which lists 101 Run Commands and what they
correspond too…

Shutdown xp one click

Shutdown Your PC with a single click!


And that too without any worry of hung up programs.
Its simple, I don't know if it has been published before, but it a nice trick and can save
you money too!

(Note: ">" this symbol represents next step.)

> rightclick on the desktop > select 'New' > select 'Shortcut'
> a text box opens > write [shutdown.exe -s -f -c "Good Bye" -t 10] (without brackets)
> click 'next'
> name this shortcut as "Turn Off"
> click 'finish'
> rightclick on the newly formed shortcut > select 'properties'
> click 'Change Icon'
> click 'ok'
> select the icon you want
> click 'apply' > 'ok'

Now you've made the shortcut, time to test it!


BUT wait,

it'll shutdown your pc in 10 secs.


Make an "Abort shutdown" shortcut in case you accidently click on it.

For abort shortcut follow same steps as above,


but in the text box write [shutdown.exe -a] (without brackets)
and name it "Abort"

Now, test by clicking on the 'Turn off' shortcut. a window appears saying 'good bye'
Before the time runs out click on the 'Abort' shortcut to stop it. The window will vanish.

Explaing things;

shutdown.exe is a program that resides in system32 folder.


It has many attributes, see all of them by opening this file in command prompt. You can
even turn off all computers on a network simultaneously
or restart it at predefined times by making a sheduled task.

-s : shutdown
-f : forcible shutdown (ends hung applications automatically)
-c : comment (here, "Good Bye")
-t : countdown timer (in seconds)
-a : abort shutdown

Forcible shutdown command has saved me money many times when I leave an overnight
download. Sometimes download managers get stuck leaving the internet connection on,
until you wake up and turn it off. With this trick, you can be sure that at a predefined
time, computer will surely turn off regardless of any hung up application.

Good bye,

Incrace broadband spped


This is for broad band connections. I didn’t try it on dial up but might work for dial up.
make sure your logged on as actually "Administrator". do not log on with any account
that just has administrator privileges.

-start - run - type gpedit.msc


-expand the "local computer policy" branch
-expand the "administrative templates" branch
-expand the "network branch"
-Highlight the "QoS Packet Scheduler" in left window
-in right window double click the "limit reservable bandwidth" setting
on setting tab check the "enabled" item
-where it says "Bandwidth limit %" change it to read 0

Effect is immediate on some systems, some need to re-boot. This is more of a "counter
what XP does" thing. In other words, programs can request up to 20% of the bandwidth
be reserved for them, even with QoS disabled, this is no big deal and most programs do
not request it. So, although QOS has caused a big stink because people think it reserves
20% of their bandwidth, you can still disable it, just to be sure, hehe
