comment How to selectively load device drivers in Windows 7
I'd speak to the laptop manufacturer - they may have a way of configuring this behaviour - certainly worth a try.

comment What things should I run daily, weekly, monthly on my Windows machine?
Most decent backup programs have an encryption option anyway, but Truecrypt is useful for other stuff. But my main concern was with the loss of data, rather than the effect of it being in evil hands...

comment Select full file name when renaming on Windows 7
Yes, so was I... It was a welcome & long overdue feature, but you knew once is was implemented, that someone would be hankering for the 'good old days'... On the rare occasion where you change the extension, is it too much trouble to press CTRL-A (or use the mouse)?

comment Is there way to use Windows Easy Transfer on Windows Server 2008
Thanks David, but I've got access to plenty of backup solutions. The joy of Windows Easy Transfer was that it bundled up various application settings along with each user's documents, favourites etc... I've started doing the process manually... it's not the end of the world, but it's slightly frustrating...
