comment Window7 troubleshooting .exe is not opening
This does not always work. I'm seeing a case where creating a new user profile does not solve the problem although it should as we are fixing HKEY_CURRENT_USER. I'm going a little crazy right now. Microsoft offers this: support.microsoft.com/kb/950505#LetMeFixItMyselfAlways which is more extensive but also not helping.

comment How to fix corrupted filesystem (shows as RAW) in USB device?
I've successfully used this to recover data from a 300GB USB harddrive. I did not manage to repair the partition table. It's still RAW although I set it to NTFS and a P or * partition several times. It always talks about rebooting, which does not make sense with a USB hdd I think. I've tried unplugging, safely removing in Win7 and even rebooting and turning off the computer, unplugging, booting and plugging back in, all to no avail. Still, we got the data back, so I think this is a great tool. Thanks a lot!

comment Handling MS office documents on Linux without root access
You don't have to do that. The documents actually are zip files that contain a folder structure with xml inside.

comment Handling MS office documents on Linux without root access
You might be able to do something with the XML that is contained within the word 2003 docs. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office_XML_formats, also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WordProcessingML. I don't know why no-one has ever built a parser for this stuff in Perl.
