Creating a hidden folder in Windows Xp/Vista/7

Have you ever needed a folder on your desktop but hate looking at it?
Here's how to make a "Invisible" folder.
Step One - Making the folder name blank
Create a new folder on your desktop (or wherever you want it) right click the folder and hit rename
hit backspace to delete all the text while renaming it hold down alt and hit 2 5 5 on the right side of your keyboard(Not the numbers above your letters!) then click anywhere on the desktop. If you have a laptop you have to hold alt and the function key then hit the corresponding numbers on your letter keys. Your folder name should be blank if not try again.
Step Two - Making the icon clear
Now right click the folder hit properties go to customize then hit change icon scroll to the right until you see a blank icon click it then hit ok then ok again.
Your folder should be pretty much invisible :)

How to Edit The “NEW” Context Menu in Windows 7

Have you ever wanted to know how to edit Window 7's "NEW" context menu? I have looked every where

on the net and couldn't find anything about editing it without software, well i figured it out! :)This is very useful especially if your into writing scripts or programing.
Normally you have to open up notepad or what ever text editor you use and save the file with the file extension you want (.vbs .bat .js .cpp .reg ect..)
but with this registry tweak you can have all of them in your "NEW" context menu.
(NOTE: This only Works with text based file extensions like .vbs .bat .js .reg ect…)
(WARNING!!!: Editing the registry can be dangerous DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING YOU HAVE NOT CREATED YOURSELF!!

Ok lets get started!
1.Open Up the registry editor. (press start  and in search box type regedit.exe and hit enter)
2.Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and find the file extension you want. I will use .bat
3.Make a new sub key and call it "ShellNew"

4.Then make a new string value and name it "ItemName" and set the value to "@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\notepad.exe,-470″
5.Now make another string value and name it "NullFile" and leave the value blank.
When your done it should look like this now it should be in your "NEW" context menu.

To delete the ones you don't want just delete the "ShellNew" sub key under the file extention you wish to remove.
Well i hope you find this useful ive never see this on any other site i had to figure it out myself :)

How to Show/Hide Hidden Files With VB Scripting

Have you ever wanted a quick way to enable/disable your hidden files instead of having to go to explorer and hit tools then hit folder options ect every time! Well with this simple little script you don't have to! All you need to do is copy this code and paste it in a text file named "Anything.vbs" and if u have rocket dock or any other docklet program just make a shortcut to it drag and drop it on ur dock and there you go.

VB Script:

Option Explicit
Dim dblHiddenData, strHiddenKey, strSuperHiddenKey
Dim strKey, WshShell
On Error Resume Next
strKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced"
strHiddenKey = strKey & "\Hidden"
strSuperHiddenKey = strKey & "\ShowSuperHidden"
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
dblHiddenData = WshShell.RegRead(strHiddenKey)
If dblHiddenData = 2 Then
WshShell.RegWrite strHiddenKey, 1, "REG_DWORD"
WshShell.RegWrite strSuperHiddenKey, 1, "REG_DWORD"
WScript.Echo "Showing Hidden Files "
WshShell.RegWrite strHiddenKey, 2, "REG_DWORD"
WshShell.RegWrite strSuperHiddenKey, 0, "REG_DWORD"
WScript.Echo "Hidding Files "
End if

Dark Crypt 1.0

This is a project i have been working on it took me about 2 hours to make with vb 2008. It is a file encryption program that uses Aes, Des, Triple Des, Rc2 And Rsa. It can encrypt any file but if you use Rsa and the file is over 1 meg the program will hang so just let it do its thing it will encrypt it i dont know why it does that :) . You can also encrypt it in hex or base 64 plus it is fully portable. Download:Dark Crypt 1.0
