    REG HACK: display what files are being read during windows load

    I read about this Reg Hack which shows which files are actually being executed while windows is loading (rather than just saying loading personal settings):-

    ************************************************** *************************
    Show Verbose Security Status Messages (Windows 2000/XP)

    This setting allows you to configure Windows so that you receive verbose startup, shutdown, logon, and logoff status messages.

    This may be helpful to in troubleshooting slow startup, shutdown, logon, or logoff behaviour. Open your registry and find or create this key:-

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Policies -> System

    To enable verbose status messages create a new DWORD value called "verbosestatus" and set it to "1". (verbosestatus REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1))

    An additional value called "DisableStatusMessages" forces status messages to be disabled, make sure this value does not exist or is set to "0".
    (DisableStatusMessages REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (0))

    Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

    I got this from

    Any ideas for putting a PC in this? :)

    or you can just hit the "ESC" key right before the splash up screen.. .. no need to do a registry hack, since that can take the turn for the worse if done incorrectly ..
