comment Is it illegal to download TV Shows that I pay for? (Bittorrent)
@New-To-IT How exactly am I not paying the cable company for the episode? I pay my bill, and that show is currently stored on my DVR. Did you actually read the question?

Good idea. Tried it though - no luck.

comment My VPN appears to be making my cable internet connection 5X faster?
@AndréDaniel - That was my initial guess too, but it seems like TWC would have better throttling than that. Anyway, I've verified that I'm actually getting that speed, so I'm just going to enjoy it while it lasts =o)

comment Stop Windows 7 Explorer from automatically expanding folders
None of the answers are any good. The point isn't to make explorer not expand to the current folder, it's to make explorer show the current folder by not expanding a bunch of other default crap. Read the question folks.

comment Windows 7 Internet Connection Dropping Randomly
@techie007 - Yes, it's the only DNS server for this box. It does forward to an external server at the ISP. It's the same setup I had in XP, and was working. I haven't tried a new cable yet, since this started at exactly the same time I installed windows 7. I will try a new cable right now though.

Hmm. That probably means the picture itself really is BW then. Oh well - thanks!

comment Remote printing doesn't work. Remote XP, Local Windows 7
It's an HP of some type. I forget the model. I'll check next time I see it, but it was working for this printer before, so it's probably not host based?

comment Remote printing doesn't work. Remote XP, Local Windows 7
She says it worked previously, when she had XP on both ends. The only thing that's really changed is the local box changed to 7.

comment Windows Server 2008: how to remove “favorite links” from Explorer?
Really seems like there should be a way to just get rid of the favorites and keep the folder tree...
