  • Add new menu entries to My Computer's context menu (mycomp.reg)
  • Enable Superfetch/Prefetcher (BootXP.reg)
  • Set stisvc service to Manual, disable NoSaveSettings policy and enable NoNetCrawling (wia.reg)
  • HungAppTimeout 5000, WaitToKillAppTimeout 4000 (desligarrapido.reg)
  • Set menu show delay to 0 (menuiniciarrapido.reg)
  • Set (Default) value in the 'Printer' CLSID in RemoteComputer (remotecomputer.reg)
  • Remove 2 namespaces in RemoteComputer, including 'Printer' CLSID (?) (speedup.reg)

The bootleg was made using nLite 1.3.5.
