Create a folder and name it: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}


take a look at what you get.


This should work on Vista 32 bit, but causes crashes on the 64bit.

It gives you the ability to make just about every system change you can think of from one spot. I am still playing with it to see everything I can change with it.

Something to try once I upgrade out of the RC version (Don't wanna muck about in this current scenario even though I know it won't make any difference).

I was just holding off until the local retailers started selling it. They got it last month and I'll likely get the official license sometime this month or next so I'm in no rush. :)

Wow. Why was this not made public? This is so much easier than the fucking confusing control panel in Vista.

Maybe they think this makes it easier for the average guy to screw up his computer, blaming Microsoft and increasing their support calls because of all the changes that are now easily accesible and he/she may have no clue until about what they did until it is to late.

Which is why the general public thinks OSX is better than Windows.

There's a lot of truth to this. Both systems have hidden files and command line, etc.

But man does window make it a bitch to do basic stuff and in turn make it seem like its soooo hard to use or master. They feed the beast, man.

Actually, I was talking about the fact that Mac locks everything down to the Nth degree, while Windows still retains the ability to be changed and reprogrammed.

Mac is great if you want to do everything the way Apple wantsa you to. There is not much free style though.

Ah see I was going the other way. Not so much with major stuff, but with the minor things and the basic surface appearing of changing things.

I also agree with you there.

So even though I have Vista64 and there are multiple warnings about trying this, of course I said "fuck it! What's the worst that could happen?" and I created the folder.
Holy christ. :lol:
Windows Explorer started chain crashing immediately. I restarted, same thing. I turned it completely off and back on. Same thing. I started it up in safe mode and it was completely fucked and nonresponsive then (so much for safe mode!). Did a little research on my smart phone and found the solution. I had to use the command line and break out some old school DOS shit to erase that goddamn directory right the fuck outta of its little cocksucking lair.
No god mode for me.
:mad:

and that is bad, why?
Especially if their way is so simple to use?

I did get to experince the singular thrill of throughly fucking something up and then quickly defucking it.
I still can't believe how troublesome just naming a file could be. :lol:

The exact same thing happened to me. I knew I should'nt do it ;-).
Had to reboot in the failsafe mode and erase the folder from the desktop.

Seriously if you're running Vista 64 don't do it.

That has to be a Peter Griffin Pencil Sharpener moment, you knew what it'd do but you had to try it anyway. :D

Absolutely. But no star wars references were made, so not really. :wink:

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and it worked great for me. It even got a program that I was having problems with the work correctly. I'm VERY happy!

I don't believe I said it was a bad thing Mario. It is a matter of preferences. You do not need to defend your love of Mac to me.

It's just a matter of preference. I like the fact that I can whittle windows down to 25 running processes, and completely adjust how my gui looks if I want to.
