Windows GodMode

GodmodeYou can easily create a folder that has every configurable option in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.  It works in all these operating systems. 

  1. Create a new folder on the desktop
  2. Name (or rename it) as  GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
  3. Open the folder and you’ll see a bunch of different configurable Windows options and commands.
  4. You can Right-Click the folder and select Pin to Start so it will always be on your Start Menu.

Here’s a video showing you how simple it is:  Remember it works in all Windows operating systems from Vista onward.

Copy this code: GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

  1. I tried this just to see what it looked like. My computer froze, I lost keyboard function, I could move my cursor where I liked but clicks were unresponsive. My taskbar was flashing about twice per second. I did the 3-finger salute and got Task Manager but I couldn’t kill explorer.exe as permissions were denied. I had to do a hard shutdown in order to get to where I could try Last Known Good, which didn’t work. Neither did System Restore no matter how far back I went. Even in Safe Mode I had the flashing taskbar and no way to do anything. I ended up taking my computer to a shop where my harddrive was slaved to another computer and the God Mode folder was removed. After that things became normal again once I rebooted my router. So I’m out 4 hours and $40 and I’m a bit wiser I hope.
    Here’s the link to the Wikipedia article on God Mode:
    If you read this you’ll see Vista x64 is particularly affected. Go ahead, guess what I’m using…

    • Sorry to hear your problems–I guess I dodged a bullet. When I had a Vista x64 machine I was able to create the God Mode folder (I put it on my C: drive folder and not the desktop) and did not have any troubles.

      When I upgraded that computer from Vista to 7, I had no troubles recreating a God Mode folder.

      By the way, when I created the God Mode folders, I named it with just that gibberish (the ED7…) and it was automatically renamed to God Mode.

      • Where I saw it it was called something else, so I don’t think it matters what you call it. Mine didn’t change it’s name to God Mode, it stayed the name I typed before the period.

  2. No probs herem installed on win 8 pro 64bit…this is so cool,thanks Jonco…
    Sorry you are having problems with this onedeafeye.

  3. Thanks for your comments. I guess that’s the cost of education. A bit of research first would have saved a lot of headaches. I’m just glad it was fixable!
    On the other hand, I’ve been wanting to try out Linux Mint or Ubuntu for awhile now, and unfixable would have been a good excuse to hit the deep end and see if I can swim.

  4. I had an XP box and was trying to hold on until Win7 was released. I missed it by about 11 months, so Vista was what I got. It’s not the best, but it’s not as bad as it’s made out to be either. As long as you don’t try stuff without doing a bit of research. C’est la vie. It’s the first serious computer problem I’ve ever had, so I really can’t complain. I just wanted to let other readers know that this isn’t a slam dunk, especially if you’re on x64 Vista.

  5. I’ve said it many times before, read the comments first.

    Like the millions of comments everywhere else to AVOID Vista.

    Do your research or suffer the consequences.
