    EduGod Mode

    I am looking at creating a package that allows full functionality of the "god mode" available in windows 7. I got the idea from @mattx admin bar, but wanted quick and easy access to use stuff built into Windows 7 without adding in anything extra packages, or without having to go round the houses to get some of the settings.

    So far in my list of things to include I have the following

    • Services
    • Indexing Services
    • Print Spooler Cleaner
    • Device Manager
    • Computer Manager
    • System Info
    • Check Links
    • Link Speed ~(to accurately test your network throughput)
    • Memory Monitor
    • Memory Triage
    • Performance Monitor
    • Partitioner
    • Defrag
    • Wireless NIC and Wired NIC Configuration
    • Add Remove Programs
    • Change Locale Settings
    • Rename PC
    • System Restore

    I am looking to include various package links (such as open up new document in Word, Excel, outlook etc for variants of office from 2003 - 2010).

    What would you all say to this and have I missed anything off?

    Surely Dos_Box will have more technological weapons to hand than a sword? Mind you, I expect nephilim will have some interesting gadgets as well. Hmmm - shape changers, morph fields, portable black holes?

    If someone can post up what doesn't work in win7 64bit that would be good so I can work on those too.

    Looks good, but there are a few issues on Windows 7 x64.

    Buttons which do absolutely nothing when clicked
    Check Disk, Defrag, GPResult

    Buttons which crash the application when clicked
    Component Servers, Disk Partitioner, Event Viewer, Hardware Wizard, MSConfig, Onscreen Keyboard, Performance Monitor, Presentation Manager, Printer Migration, Registry Edit, Repair Disk, System Restore, User Accounts

    Buttons which work
    Disk Cleanup, Display Switch, GPUpdate, MS Diagnostic Tool, Remote Desktop, Resource Monitor, System Info, User Access Control

    Other issues
    * Credential Wizard & Encryption Wizard open, but only a tiny part of their title bar is visible.
    * DXDiag, NetStat, NSLookup and Task Manager all open minimized by default
    * NetStat doesn't stay open

    Feature Requests
    * Make it a regular EXE with zero dependencies. Not only do ClickOnce apps not work on TS/RD servers, but they are annoying too.
    * Add button for Windows Update
    * Grey out buttons for features which aren't implemented yet.

    Just wondering, is this any different to the 'God mode' documented here?

    You can carry this around on a memory stick and just run it from there.
