In case you have issues on your Windows 2003 concerning VSS, Microsoft has an update rollup available for download to fix certain issues with VSS:
Ever since the official announcement of the iPhone 4S, I'm reading basically everywhere on how disappointed the fans were about the iPhone 5 not being announced, but instead the iPhone 4S was...
To all those sites and fans (which in my opinion aren't really fans): why are you nagging about the iPhone 5? There never ever was an official announcement or rumour about the iPhone 5 ever being announced or released. The iPhone 4S is the next generation of the iPhone. So what's it's not called the iPhone 5? It's only a name, invented by those spreading rumours in the first place. It never was announced by Apple at all. So cut the cr*p and move on...
For those using the Quick Launch bar in Windows 7 and have "misplaced" their Show Desktop and Window Switcher icons, can download the shortcuts in the attached archive to replace them.
When running a Synology, take care when you require (or don't want) public (a.k.a. guest) access to shares.
To allow access, first check whether the guest account is not disabled. I found out it was disabled after joining the device in a Windows domain. Disabling the account is a good way to effectively cut off all public access.
If you require guest access on some shares but not on all, be sure to set the ACL for Guest in Privileges Setup to No Access for shares that have to be locked down. Not explicitly setting this will allow public access on that share.
If you're planning on running WordPerfect 9 on a Terminal Server, be sure to provide full access for your users on the registry key HKLM\Software\COREL (64-bit: HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\COREL).
This fixes the Cannot initialize error when starting WP as a regular user.
If the Show Desktop icon is deleted from Quick Launch, the procedure below will recreate the file.
Open Notepad and enter the following text:
[Shell] Command=2 IconFile=explorer.exe,3 [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop
Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf (note the SCF extension) then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear.
A new type of rootkit has recently been seen. While most modern rootkits use the MBR and unused sectors of a harddrive, this one also misuses NTFS metadata to inject malicious code into a running OS.
By default, Thunderbird shows the namespaces of IMAP folders as a seperate folder containing the subfolders belonging to that namespace. An example of this is when you use Google Mail and have IMAP access configured.
An add-on exists for Thunderbird which gets rid of the namespace folder and sorts all subfolders in the root tree:
This is particularly useful for Google Mail where the sent mail, trash and other system folders are stored in a namespace called [GMail]. This way, these folders are stored directly in the root of the tree rather than in a subfolder named after the namespace.
In case of an infection with phony anti-spyware software (such as Anti Spyware 2009), where the EXE file association has been corrupted, use these Registry fixes to reset them to default behaviour.
