It does not appear that VirtualBox supports a global proxy setting that applies transparently to all your guest operating systems, or even certain ones. That would definitely be convenient. You should be able to open Internet Explorer in your guest OS, configure the proxy in the same way that your host OS is configured. (Some Linux guest operating systems ...

A supplemental answer that improves upon other answers listed here. Be aware that tools like Eraser can only wipe the 'cluster tips' (the slack space at the end of any file smaller than a multiple of the cluster size) of files that are not in use or protected.

This works for me: FOR /R "f:\" %f in (*.mp3) do copy "%f" "C:\Documents and Settings\AL\Desktop\mp3\" I've omitted the backslash before your wildcard (*.mp3) instead of (\*.mp3) and put double quotes around the filename as argument of the copy command: copy "%f".

Short answer: No. Long answer: You would have to use 3rd party software to accomplish but it's not recommended, instead you should buy a new RAM module and let Windows manages the memory as he wants.

Under Ubuntu Linux, I found the search engine settings stored in "~/.config/chromium/Default/Preferences". Under Windows, it should be " C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences"

Your cheapest legal option is go buy a used copy on a site like eBay (these generally are from people who bought a retail copy and have extra license keys that are unused). Obviously, buyer beware, but eBay's reputation system should help you out there. Next cheapest would be buying an OEM license (usually around $100-105).

Windows Explorer does not use the Visual C++ runtime. The problem is caused by code injected into explorer.exe. From what you are describing, that code could have a dependency on Visual C++ 2010 Runtime and would fail to run when it is missing. Uninstalling the Visual C++ 2010 Runtime is not the solution, the Runtime is popular among developers and you may ...

I believe it is the "Server" service that will listen on 445. This might be called "Lanman" or "Workgroup" service in XP. Port 123 is for time sync (NTP) and does not seem typical for an XP workstation to be enabled. Not certain how to disable it however you can use netstat -a -b -o to find out what process/service is using what port.

Yes. Because copying a file is a system activity and not user activity. You can read everything in more details at Windows 7 sleeping during operations.

Yes. Installing a new motherboard won't automatically format the hard drive. Formatting is something you'd have to take explicit action to do. Now, if the hard drive is the one hosting the OS and that OS is Windows, you may run in to problems. If it's the same brand and model of motherboard, Windows may require reactivation and/or a new license key, ...

Simply change your network configuration from NAT to bridged. This will make it appear that your virtual machine is actually connected to your LAN just like any other computer. Then, you should be able to ping the IP of your VM from the VM's host, and vice-versa. If you can get ping to work, then you should be good to go.

Yes, you can. But you have to watch out for your external Hard Drive's file system. Macs are unable to work with the NTFS file system (the one Windows use) due to the system architecture, however if your hard drive is formatted in FAT-32, you should be able to copy them from one system to another fine. If your hard drive is formatted in the NTFS file system ...

If the external drive is formatted as FAT you will have no issues at all. If it is formatted as NTFS you can read it on the Mac but may have to jump through a few hoops, and you will definitely have to take extra steps to be able to write to it from the Mac. If you're using Mavericks I think it can read NTFS natively and you probably won't have any issues. ...

You should not have any problem. Just make sure the external hard drive is formatted with a file system compatible with both Windows XP and Mac OS X. (Probably it's already shipped with a compatible one but it is worth checking). Then just copy your data to the external drive and from there to the Mac. Alternatively, if the two computers are on the same ...

Sounds like the boot partition is the first partition on the drive. It also needs to be a primary partition and marked as active in the partition table if you haven't already checked.
