comment Can't turn on Microsoft update in Windows 7 x86
It's worth noting... or is to me, at least, that this same issue impacts the server versions of Windows as well, or at the very least Server 2008 R2 (don't have any 2012/2012 R2 servers I can test this on at the moment). Anyway, thanks for helping me figure out why I couldn't use Microsoft update on a bunch of my servers.

comment How to gain access to Windows Users folders on a read-only backup medium
Sounds like a UAC issue. See if you can access the folder(s) with an elevated command line (like PowerShell), rather than Windows Explorer.

comment How to delete a file in Windows with a too long filename?
Pure genius, man. Saved me a huge chunk of time when some idiot saved an email with the whole damn email as the file name... and made me wonder why I hadn't thought of it before, especially since I was using robocopy to preseed some file servers at the time. :)

comment Samsung 700z Laptop Unusual Screen Flickering
While it's powered on, pour some water into the GPU. You'll be able to honestly diagnose the problem as a massive short circuit in the GPU to satisfy your boss, and move onto something more useful, to satisfy yourself.

You've clearly wasted too much time on this already. If it's under warranty, return it and let Samsung deal with it. If it's out of warranty, time to buy one that is in warranty.

Firewall get turned on? SSH server not running? Lots of things can cause this.

comment What is this Filezilla Connections Timeout setting for?
Well, if it's less than the "no transfer timeout", it would kick in first, yes. The "no transfer timeout" setting is used to prevent connection keep-alive techniques that rely on, for example sending a LIST command every so often. Regarding the topicality of the question, you are free to edit it (such as adding your comment into the question), which will put it in a review queue for community members to vote on whether to reopen it or not, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. I wouldn't have put it on hold unless I was confident the community would have eventually. But, you're free to try.

It tells you how many seconds a client can be idle for before it is disconnected.
