Good list for 'God Mode' or GUIDs.

Other than creating a system folder using the GUIDs, some GUIDs work directly from the Run box ("Windows key"+R). Copy and paste shell:::{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} into the Run box and press OK to get All Tasks in Vista and Win7.

shell:::{D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524153} or shell:common administrative tools will get you the common administrative tools for XP to Win7.
