Windows XP user's tracker
While I have administrative access on almost all the PC's I maintain, I'm not too keen on someone using WindowsXP built in user tracking feature to monitor my movements. Luckily, there's an easy registry fix to stop this!
If you'd simply like to stop Windows from monitoring your activities load regedit (Start -> Run then type regedit and press the OK button) then scroll to this path HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows->CurrentVersion -> Policies -> Explorer. From there modify or create the NoInstrumetation DWORD value and give it a value of 1.
If you'd like to disable this feature completely follow this path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows->CurrentVersion -> Policies -> Explorer and create or modify the NoInstrumentation DWORD value and give it a value of 1. Once that's done, reboot your computer and you're set! No more Windows tracking your movements.
