Disable checking for scheduled tasks when browsing Win9x shares

Accessing Win9x/Me shares can be slow, this can be caused by remotely checking for scheduled tasks and printers on the Win9x/Me machine.

To disable this checking go to this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Explorer \RemoteComputer \NameSpace]

There you will find these sub-keys:

{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} (Scheduled Tasks)
{2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} (Printers)

By deleting these sub-keys the checking will be disabled.

Note a backup should be made of the registry keys before deleting them in case one need to restore it.
