comment what's the simplest way to have a local mail server for demonstration purpose?
Yea- because when you isntall Windows Server with Exchange.. It is there out of the box no messing around. Setting up other users is easy as pie.. because the exhange sets up the other users on other domain users.. in 1 click.. user1 sent to user2 .. isntant. Installing 3rd party.. you will spend half your life configuring smtp/pop accounts.. ontop of a server

comment How to allow non-admin users to run a VBS script that requires higher privileges?
VBScript cannot do that unfortunalty :( There are programs to force an elevation.. but you still need to put the password in.. is that what you want? But doing it silently ... no Why? Because of hackers who made life hell at MS so now we have all this bollocks security.. The only way is to write a .NET app and sign it with a UAC certificate for your domain/computer so it can securely elevate it self silently...

You want to send emails to ? yourself? because you said there is no internet... If you install Windows Server with Exchange then it will work.. or you can use ubuntu with postfix too..

comment improving a heavily used LCD's screen life, some questions
I have a 12 year old laptop that i converted into a picture frame that runs 24/7 - no fade'ing is noticable on it.. Then i have several other notebooks i use daily.. Acer.. i notice its not so bright any more.. Dell.. no problems.. HP-very good but some cable problem from using to much.. Its only depends on the quality of the screen.. Turning it ON and OFF too much can damage it more than leaving it on! MOst of my computer run 24/7 .. just because 1 is not enough for me anymore...And i dont use screensaver.. but i dim/turn off dispaly after 1 hour.. because i am sleeping..

comment Windows Live Mail doesn't respond to clicking Allow Sender
Almost like a COM object.. Obviously Windows and Office developers have access to kernel level functions and objects.. which is all written in C/C++ ... which makes debugging (or hacking) more complicated.

you might find it hard to believe but most Office products use the IE component. The process name will be the actual program but whatever is used inside is most likely an IE window.. but it does not use .NET.. instead Office directly interfaces with the correct DLL's and can hide/masquerade components anyway they like. But it is strange that a new install gives you this issue.

seems strange- something is blocking the click.. you might also want to try lower intranet settings.. or if you have antivirus with internet security.. check those settings.. it is todo with with popup blockin.. or running local scripts.. because that is an IE window

comment word 2010 spell checker chokes on Camel Case
yea - the complaining is correct.. because it is grammatically correct. not technically correct. Unfortunately for this purpose you need to get a technical dictionary or some other kind of checker.. or mark technical terms to be ignored..

comment Sharing VPN access between two computers on the LAN
installing a VPN router on your side should help you get all computers to access the VPN'ed network.. but i think both sided needs it.. hence comment only not answer

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
It was requested by the government on those basis you mentioned to be implemented into each intel based computer so that data can be disposed off in a safe way to re use hardware on low level security.(eg public health sector-which is always under paid) Any high level security hardware.. gets Nuked from orbit or smashed to dust.. not banged with a hammer.. or melted into a door stop.
