Registry Hack

Each time after rebuilding my PC. I do the following :
These hacks were ones I made so that additional options would show up when I either right-clicked on a folder or a file, in explorer.
Gives you a Copy To and a Move To option in your right click menu and you can select which location to copy or move the selected file. Saves me a lot of time.

Start the Registry Editor
Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ AllFilesystemObjects \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers \
Right-click the ContextMenuHandlers entry, and from the menu select New > Key
Name the new key Copy To
Repeat step 3, but this time for the name (step 4) choose Move To
Change the (Default) string value found in the Copy To key to {C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}
Change the (Default) string value found in the Move To key to {C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}

Disable the automatic shares on your computer (ones like C$, Admin$):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters]
“AutoShareWks”=dword:00000000
“AutoShareServer”=dword:00000000

And to reenable them:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters]
“AutoShareWks”=dword:11111111
“AutoShareServer”=dword:11111111

Change the DVD region.
Open regedit>>Go to HKEY_LOCAL_SYSTEM/Software/Microsoft/Windows
Click on current version
Modify DVD_Region string data value to which ever region you would like. This is great for watching imports.
