Neat Tweak

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by NotBold_Fortune, Nov 28, 2003.

  1. I got this off of X-teq Setup:

    When you right-click the mouse in Internet Explorer, the program checks it codepage settings in the Registry. It if finds a blank codepade, then it will try to locate a replacement. Doing this wastes a lot of time and processor cycles, so by removing the empty entries, the process can be speeded up.

    In X-teq, go to: All X-Setup Plugins > Internet > Internet Explorer > System > Clean Up Code Page References.

    It found 79 error invalid codes for me. These are the references for NLS Files = Multiple Language Resource Files. Character Translation; National Language Services driver (font or font map), we discussed in our Slimming Down XP threads.

  6. If you're using English for the U.S., most likely.

  8. You can view the changes it makes to your registry here:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\Codepage]

    Actually, it's more of a registry "cleanup" tweak than anything else. Normally, you would see the 79 entries it deleted for you with empty spaces next to the .nls numbers.
