comment Windows 8.1: Flash video in Steam was working, then I installed Firefox, and now it is not
Thank you, but my primary goal is to not have to install anything extra. It was working fine. Installing FF broke it. I don't want to have to install something else to fix the thing that was broken by installing something. For now until I find a better solution, when I want to watch a video from Steam, I right click it, copy URL, paste the URL into IE and just watch it in IE.

Doesn't help. :(

Nope, Firefox is not my default browser and never was. What's funny is that if I click the link that's embedded within the Steam video that says "click here to install the Flash plugin," the link opens up in... Internet Explorer.

That makes sense... I feel silly for asking the question now. I'll dig through the dump. Thanks.

comment How to find out what is running on localhost port
It's netstat -b, but this question is off topic because it does not appear to relate to professional systems administration.

comment Can't change routes with VPN Client
Isn't it kind of the point for your VPN client to enforce that policy? The company probably has a security policy that requires you to not use split-tunneling, and circumventing that policy would be a security risk.

comment Cannot access Samba share from Windows 8, but I can in Windows 7
Ok... one other idea. How about the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa key, change the value of LmCompatibilityLevel to whatever it is on your Windows 7 machine, and reboot again

comment Performance issue on Windows 7 Dell Optiplex 990
Well that's obviously unacceptable behavior. But we don't have enough information to diagnose this. Do the professional thing and call your vendor and get them to explain how it is the PCs they sold you don't run Windows 7.
