    Post Tech Forum Links

    We would like to dedicate this space to Alan Norman. Alan passed away in March 2005.

    Alan volunteered to be the Tech Forum moderator in 2001 when we started these forums based on the new software. He is part of the Tech Forum and will always be remembered by the people who he helped directly or indirectly.

    Microsoft error code lookup tool

    This link lets you download the Microsoft error code decoder tool, "err.exe". After extracting it, you run it from a command line. For example:

    err 0x0000008e

    Heres a few I find useful.

    Windows XP services guide. BlackViper (the No1 guide around) is MIA so here's the next best.
    http://www.theeldergeek.com/services_guide.htm
    and just in case BlackViper pops up again
    http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/service411.htm

    For checking whether those entries in your task manager are really supposed to be there.
    http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

    Nice sites for networking tutorials and information/reviews on network devices and terminology.
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/
    and a more broadband-centric site
    http://www.speedguide.net/

    Registry tweaking site. Used to be regedit.com.
    http://www.winguides.com/registry/

    File extension database

    nLite is a tool for permanent Windows components removal and pre-installation Windows setup. After removal there is an option to make bootable image ready for burning on cd or testing in virtual machines. With nLite you will be able to have Windows installation which on install doesn't include, or even contain on cd, unwanted components. Also good for service pack driver integration.
