    Server 2008 SuperFetch

    By default, the Superfetch service is installed on a Server 2008 system but left disabled. If you try to enable it, the service won't start. This is easily fixed with 2 registry entries lifted from a Vista installation. The registry entries in question are: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters] "EnableSuperfetch"=dword:00000003 "EnablePrefetcher"=dword:00000001 If you want a cookie-cutter premade .REG file, you can download it here. For those following my '2008 as a Desktop' saga, I'm happy to report I have Diskeeper running under Server 2008 now too. The only thing I am missing from Vista these days is Dreamscene.

    Outlook Auto Complete

    On the computer with the saved AutoComplete names, go to drive:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. Note Depending on your file settings, this folder might be hidden. To view the files in this folder, do one of the following: ShowMicrosoft Windows XP ShowMicrosoft Windows 2000 Right-click profile name.nk2, and then click Copy. Tip You can copy the file to removable media, such as a floppy disk or a CD, and then copy the file to the correct location on the other computer. Or you can attach the file to an e-mail message and send the message to yourself. On the new computer, open the attachment in Outlook, and then save it to the correct location. On the computer where you want to populate the AutoComplete feature, copy the file to drive:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook. If the Outlook user profile name is different on the computer where you are moving the .nk2 file, you must rename the file with the same Outlook user profile name after you copy it to the correct folder. For example, if you move Kim Akers.nk2 from the original computer with an Outlook user profile name of Kim Akers, and you copy the Kim Akers.nk2 file to the new computer, you must rename it with the Outlook profile name being used on the new computer. When prompted about replacing the existing file, click Yes. Open Outlook to view changes.
