Removing large gap from WinXP "Add or Remove Programs"

1 comment :

I’ve been living with this annoying large gap in my "Add or Remove Programs" for quite sometime and tonight I’m wondering how to remove it although it hasn't caused any problems. After some googling around, finally I came across to a solution from experts-exchange.com. From my experience, it happen when I installed AutoCAD 2002 couple years back but didn't realize until tonight. Below are the instructions on how to fix it.

Open your regedit from START >> run... menu.

Now go to;

Now you can see that the "DisplayIcon" entry is having ",-1" value. That is causing the problem. Negative numbers will cause the gap. Edit it by removing the ",-1".

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2002\acad.exe,-1

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2002\acad.exe

And now, the moment of truth, open you "Add or Remove Programs"

Tadaa!! Good luck...

Copy FLV file from Google Chrome cache

To copy FLV from Google cache, the method is similar to copy FLV from Firefox cache. The cache location is at;

C:\Documents and Settings\YourLogin\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache


%AppData%\..\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

The method is quite similar, open explorer and go to cache folder like mentioned above.

Now watch full Youtube video in Google Chrome browser. Do not close your browser yet after that. Back to the cache folder, refresh it using F5 key and now you can see some new large file created in the folder. Sort by date modified for better visibility.

Copy it somewhere and rename it to *.flv . Now you may play the FLV using a favorite player.
