comment Excel freezes when copying a few cells multiple times
If you have disabled all addins and are still getting the problem, there is a small chance that you have a disk issue. It might be worth doing a "Repair" on Excel and then some disk checks. That would certainly cause the effect you are seeing - if the disk has a problem at a particular point - try a copy of SpinRite if you can.

comment Easy way to find out which process is locking a file or folder in Windows?
NOTE: Unlocker installs Adware if you are not careful. From their website: "Promotional feature: Fully optional Delta toolbar."

comment User authentication between websites
There really isn't anywhere near enough information I'm afraid. In theory, why aren't both servers doing the authentication direct via LDAP? If the LDAP server is common, they will both see the same data.

@Scott, not a duplicate as the OP wants a non-VBA solution.

comment Need advice with making a customized linux distribution (From scratch or pre-existing distro?)
Sounds like you are well on the way. I'd say that the great benefit of Debian is its widespread support and it acts as a common standard for many other distro's as you've already seen. It might not quite be the simplest but it embodies many of the best standards.

comment rsync on Windows not transferring large files
Useful to know that Cygwin may have cracked that issue. Unfortunately, it can be a bit slow to start up. I use Cygwin for some Photo processing scripts I use for auto renaming based on meta-data.

comment rsync on Windows not transferring large files
Personally, I use LinkShellExtension for handling links from Explorer. It handles Hard/Soft links and junctions nicely. I used to us SyncBack for backup and sync of files and folders (there is a free version though I used the paid version). Though I stopped using it since I moved to CrashPlan for backups and Dropbox/OneDrive/Copy.com for cloud file sync. About to get a Synology NAS so I might start using it again or will use the Synology tools.

comment How can I disable control mouse wheel on windows?
@CharlieRB, not phrased as a duplicate so may not be though detail is lacking in the question. I'd recommend that the OP updates the question with a little more detail. I don't think this is possible without using some form of advanced mouse driver such as the Microsoft or Logitech ones.

Maybe an upgrade to Office 2013!! I'm not seeing things like that here.
