Re: Failed hack!

The items I changed were DisablePagingExecutive and
LargeSystemCache. Well, what a disaster!

No a good choice, Alan! Sorry to hear about the problem.

See:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=323608

"SYMPTOMS
Your computer may stop responding (hang) if you run Windows 2000
with the DisablePagingExecutive setting turned on.

"CAUSE
The problem occurs because memory management does not return the
resident available pages that are used by a driver when the driver
is unloaded from the session space. This causes Windows to act as if
it has no available physical memory.

"STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft
products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This
problem was first corrected in Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack
4."

-----------------------------

If you had installed the Command Console, you may have been able to
change the registry entry by booting to the "Windows Recovery
Console". It's available for Windows 2000 and XP. Might not work
if you have damaged the hard disk structure though.

Better luck next year!
David
