Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

Boot to the Windows CD

Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the “R” key to repair Windows.

Log into your Windows installation by pressing the “1” key and pressing enter.

You may then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.

Type command: FIXMBR

Type command: FIXBOOT

Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is “d.” This letter may be different on your computer.

copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\

A faster and safer Firefox experience

August 11th, 2012 No comments

Here are a few tips to make your Mozilla Firefox experience faster, safer and more private. Most “average” users might not bother with these, but the more discerning types will find them helpful.

1. Install the following Firefox extensions – NoScript, Ghostery, Adblock Plus, OptimizeGoogle.

2. Type “about:config” (no quotes) in the address bar.

Toggle network.http.pipelining to “true”.

Toggle network.http.proxy.pipelining to “true”.

Then set integer value for network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to 40.

Right-click anywhere that’s blank on the page and then create a new item called “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its integer value to 0 (zero)

The Ghostery extension will allow you to selectively block hidden data-gathering activities such as traffic-ranking, click-throughs and such stuff like that, which can monitor what you do on the net. Some of that stuff is probably harmless but slows down your browsing experience during its data-gathering phase. The other extension recommendations are well-known as to what they do.
