  1. Windows 7 trial period extension

    LOL not any more than I have to - it makes my brain hurt every time a lawyer speaks.
  2. log in as user with no password?

    Assuming it's your home network (or is it a real work network - that would be different), in the Control Panel / User Accounts, under your user, click "Remove Your Password", log off and back on. Windows 7 that is...............
  3. Windows 7 trial period extension

    No sarcasm or evil intent intended (is that grammatically correct?), but it feels like I've just witnessed the proceedings of a "Hair Splitters Convention".
  4. tracert loop problem

    After viewing this post I check TRACERT on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit installation. From my system, I selected IBM.COM just for the hell of it. It got there in 19 hops, but continued with the last 11 of the 30 available hops, timing out all the way
  5. Mount NFS on Win 7

    Hi Blekthor; I cannot find "Services for NFS" within Windows Features. Do I need to install something externally? I am using Windows 7 Home x64. Thanks in advance. sorry partner, it's not in Windows 7 Home - only in Ultimate and Enterprise
  6. looking for a keyboard

    For plenty of keys to program, I like the Logitech gaming keyboards http://www.logitech.com/en-us/search?q=g15
  7. 2 PC 1 User

    One simple solution is using a KVM switch that allows multiple computers to use one set of Keyboard, Mouse, and Monitor - such as that listed in the NewEgg link. A simple Google search will turn up many types/costs. http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=143&name=KVM-Switches
  8. pst files

    I don't think Outlook 2007 PST files are backward compatible with Outlook 2002. You would have to export to a comma separated file and then import into 2002. A PITA.
  9. Windows update error 80072EE2

    You might try uninstalling the NIC and it's drivers and rebooting and letting Window 7 re-discover the NIC. I've seen this mentioned on a number of boards. Some have temporarily disabled Microsoft Security Essentials and then re-enabled in addition to the above.
  10. Need some help please guys

    I often had similar issues with terrible old Vista. I finally installed Unlocker 1.8.9 from this location. http://download.cnet.com/Unlocker/3000-2248_4-10493998.html I haven't seen the same issues with Windows 7
  11. How to disable WRP? Answer in post #12

    Just curious as to why you want to disable something that protects the registry, system files, etc. Not trying to accuse anyone of anything, but often some have tried this to bypass wga.
  12. Mount NFS on Win 7

    Open Control Panel Select "Programs and Features" Select "Turn Windows Features On or Off" in the upper left hand corner In the window that appears go to "Services for NFS" and check the appropriate boxes.
  13. I can't change my homepage in IE8

    You might see if this works....... Log on with an administrator account not guest or limited Create the following registry file ==================================================================================== Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel] "Homepage"=dword:00000000 ==================================================================================== Note the blank line after "Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 There must also be a blank line after the "Homepage" line Do NOT include the ================ lines. Save the file as a .REG file Right click on the file and select "Open With" and then select "Registry Editor" Answer the questions and that should do it. If you want to reverse this and re-LOCK the homepage, change the dword's last 0 to a 1
