Things You Didn’t Know About XP

Filed under: Microsoft, Windows — Hogg @ 9:56 pm

Real Tech News gives a list of 20 Things the Average Person Doesn’t Know About Windows XP. There is some really useful info for power users or the average user who wants to become a power user. Here’s one of my favorites.

4. XP hides some system software you might want to remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can make it show everything. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file /windows/inf/sysoc.inf, search for the word ‘hide’ and remove it. You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select Add/Remove Windows Components and there will be the software and you can now uninstall it.

Now I can get rid of all of that MS junk that I never needed.
