Tweaks and Fixes for Windows® XP

If you need Windows® XP support for anything other than what is provided on my site, click HERE.  Clicking on a link will open a new window with the description of the file and its usage. Click on the DOWNLOAD link on the new page to download the file. Some of these files are in VB Script format, and some are in Visual Basic 6 EXE format. The VB6 Runtimes are installed with Windows XP, so no further software installation is necessary.  In the rare case that a control is required, that isn't shipped with XP, the program will have an installer.  Note: Some of these items are User specific settings. It may be necessary to run each VBS/EXE file while logged into to that User's desktop.  If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled.  These scripts are not malicious, but they do make changes to the System Registry.
