Is there a way you can get "gpedit.msc" on vista home premium.
I have seen the web sites telling you how to do this, but the comments at the bottom have put me of a little, people have been following the instructions only to become stuck, just one example is the link below

http://www.techmynd.com/enable.....ista-home/

Is there a sure fire way of doing this, so you can just follow instructions so it will work.

I have noticed that i already have a few of the files, ( gpedit.dll , gptext.dll , fde.dll , wsecedit.dll )
And in the registry, i have a DWORD value " LmCompatibilityLevel 3 "

So i think its just a matter of knowing what to do, as this has worked for some people.

Thanks everyone
windows vista home premium, sp2, 32 bit...

i think we dont have it in it but still if you wanna add

btw it wont help you a lot even in xp 'cause by default it reserves 20% of bandwidth (but it works when windows is downloading something) which is not every time
if you doubt it then try its effect by going to any speed testing site and see the difference

thanks Aguro.
I had seen this page before, only it had comments at the bottom, for some reason thet are not there, the comments where basically people having problems when they tryed this.
Anyway the only way to know is to try it myself.

As i already have some of these files, i am not to sure how to go about this when i download the group policy files package.

QUOTE
Copy WindowsS\system32\gpedit.msc,fde.dll,gpedit.dll,gptext.dll,wsecedit.dll.
UNQOUTE.

I would only need the gpedit.msc.

And also backing up the registry, do i backup the whole registry, or specific keys

gpedit is for group policy

you should take all those dlls because these dynamic link libraries are supporter for the application(s),
you can try making system restore point

I am also curious (since i presently don't have vista right now )
but stealing it from reserved bandwidth for updates is not going to be great
but maybe theres 1 more thing which you can use to increase your cache hit time by 1403 times and decrease the cache hit time by 1403 times (when data is not fully found within the cache it then asks for download, but if cache hit occur it will load from hard disk(generally) and save downloading and hence you get faster net but even at time of cache miss(when data not found) there is delay in asking (which you can decrease)

Thanks Aguro..
As i say i am new in this area, and did not know about this "bandwidth" i diden't even know Bandwidth had anything to do with getting "gpedit"

I am still in two minds about trying this ?

but anyway i have just downloaded the "group policy files package" and copied them into system32 folder.
And then went to the next step, which was "start > CMD

regsvr32 fde.dll

When i try this, and its the same for all the files in the package i get.

" the module "fde.dll" was loaded but the entry point DLLRegisterServer was not found.
Make sure that "fde.dll" is a valid dll or OCX file "

I just new it would not be that simple following these instructions.
Shall i quit now while the goings good.. :)

i think you'll need
AMd files aswell
this articles explains a few things and also tells about other ways to increase the speed

for Vista (HOME)

read with http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931865

other way round

Vista Home Basic Internet Explorer Problem
If you’re annoyed by Internet Explorer’s incessant barking that you’ve lowered your security settings , launch “gpedit.msc” from either the Run command or Start Search field, navigate through Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Vista Components / Internet Explorer. In the rightmost pane, double-click “Turn off the Security Settings Check feature” and set it to Enabled.

Hello Aguro

Yes all the "amd files" are in C:\windows\INf
Restarted the computer, and i am still getting

" the module "fde.dll" was loaded but the entry point DLLRegisterServer was not found.
Make sure that "fde.dll" is a valid dll or OCX file "

Would this have anything to do with the registry value " LmCompatibilityLevel 3" i did see somewhere that you have to change this to "0"
