To get this done, you need to install the proper update, downloaded from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917607.
Then, in the application that uses HTML Help, set its compatibility to Windows 98 / Windows Me.
If you're missing one of the required Windows Update services, you can use the attached registry fixes to re-register the services in Windows.
I found NcFTP to be a useful toolkit for use in scripting. Aside of a linux version, it also has precompiled binaries for Mac and Windows.
The toolkit contains different programs which are very useful for use in various scripting (such as automatic file upload/download, and more). Both regular FTP and SFTP are supported.
You may get error 8024A000 when checking for updates with Windows Update.
If you have recently changed your partition layout (resizing) or put in a new HD, you may get this error. The solution that seemed to work in my case, is to download and install the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver (I know, what has this got to do with Windows Update, right?). After installation, Windows redetects the disks and, for some reason, Windows Update suddenly comes to life again.
It's very easy to stop the currently running backup of Windows Server Backup. Run this at a command prompt:
wbadmin stop job
You can add -quiet to disable the prompt.
An Asterisk TAPI driver, which is actually usable on Terminal Server:
It's not freeware, but is absolutely affordable, and is usable on Terminal Server (multi-user profiles).
Google Chrome can start up in fullscreen (F11) by default. This is done by enabling Kiosk-mode during startup. To do this, set the shortcut to Chrome like so:
Windows 7 has a an application called Sticky Notes, which does just that. The contents and layout of the stickies are stored in a single file: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt
If you wish to backup or transfer your sticky notes, this is the file you need. When restoring, simply place the file in the same location and you're done with it.
If the scan-to function of your networked Brother MFC mysteriously stops working, it may be because of strict firewall settings. The scanner attempts to connect to the Brother ControlCenter software on your PC via a directed UDP connection to your computer. If this is blocked at your computer (by e.g. a firewall), the scan function no longer works.
To resolve, open up port UDP 54925 in your firewall.
For Network PC-FAX, you also have to open port UDP 54926.
Read here why it is not, and why you should migrate to Joomla 2.5 as soon as possible:
An interesting read about the "rules of engagement" (or rather, lack thereof) when dealing with Joomla websites:
Be careful when deleting a POP3-account in Apple Mail. Doing so will also remove all messages from the folders Inbox, Sent items and Trash, even if they are no longer on the server and only available offline.
To prevent this from happening, move/copy all messages to folders created inside the On My Mac section. These are folders that are kept locally and will not be affected when removing accounts. After which, you can safely remove the account.
Because Google Apps (Gmail) automatically puts a copy of your sent items in the Sent Items folder, it's rather redundant for Outlook to do this as well. Although Google Apps prevents the creation of doubles, it's better to just let Google Apps do it, as it's one less thing to upload (particularly useful on slow connections).
To turn off the copy of sent items in Outlook, turn off the option Save copies of messages in the Sent Items folder. You'll find this in the Outlook options in the Mail tab, section Save messages.
