  1. I had copied a registry file from somewhere else, I didn't understand about the contents inside that file. Anyone know what does it mean?
    The contents of the file are as:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
    @="Command &Prompt Here"
    @="%windir%\\System32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"%1\""
    @="Command &Prompt Here"
    @="%windir%\\System32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"%1\""
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

    I found it from the website. It is said to be able to increase the performance of the PC

    What was your reason for doing that?

    It's a bunch of convenience hacks..

    You should never, ever apply registry patches without knowing exactly what they are supposed to do. Instead of using this obscure pile, find some proper source that tells you exactly what each of these do.

    The AutoEndTasks trick can be very dangerous, for example.

    Thanks for reminding me. Fortunately, I haven't tried that file yet and I will confirm what they are before applying them.
