comment System load and keylock Indicator will not autostart in Linux Mint 17
chickaroo writes: "Not sure why cinnamon seems to completely ignore indicators, must be a hardcoded blacklist somewhere." -- Damn thing! I've just spent some hours blindly debugging the process of ignoring the "/etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-keylock.desktop" file. The blacklist seems to be looking for the string "indicator-". So if you rename the file into "indicator_keylock.desktop" or "keylock-indicator.desktop", you're done : ) ! To be debugged further (digged through the logs and source of cinnamon). BTW, the logs seems to be here: $HOME/.cinnamon/glass.log . Found it at the very end.

comment Is there a way to determine which service (in svchost.exe) does an outgoing connection?
All you are right. For me this feature works in XP only. It would be nice to investigate on what has changed in w7 in this regard so it doesn't work.

revised Is it sufficient to refresh an archival external HDD with chkdsk?
(1) several typos; (2) add the product description quote; (3) restructure answer's ending.

PS: if anyone knows about such tool for *NIX systems (or another one for Windows), I will appreciate your signal:)

comment Disable the Security Essentials End-of-Life Warning on Windows XP
PS: This key has no write permissions so it needs additional love:) PPS: the DWORD value data=6 means "Ignore". Check "Overrides tab" here: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb418783.aspx

comment Disable the Security Essentials End-of-Life Warning on Windows XP
@and31415 , Thank you for a beautiful workaround:) But today I noticed MSE started detecting this change as malware action. By removing it and rebooting, MSE gets red again. "Threat's" description: microsoft.com/security/portal/threat/encyclopedia/… So I turned off the automatics in MSE and added the "threat" to whitelist. After comparing registry dumps I think now we need to import this too: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Threats\ThreatIDDefaultAction] "2147685200"=dword:00000006

comment How do I get Thunderbird not to store emails on the remote server when using IMAP?
Igancio, another scenario is when you are reading email from several hosts and it's organized as bunch of folders (Old inbox, Sent-mail, Conference, Important, etc.) In such case it's important to retain the same structure of mail folders. Plus to have newest msgs on your server, so every host reading it could sync own local cache to the server (by appending new msgs to the old ones). So every important msg you got in your life can be access whenever/wherever you like. So POP3 won't help in this case. Every mail server has it's storage limits. So the solution is still needed.
