comment RDP connections keep dropping
Hi Sam, thanks for your answer. Please note that this problem is independent of the RDP host. Also please read comments on the question, indicating that since installing & running Wireshark, the problem seems to have stopped for the time being.

@mnmnc - this is pretty weird. I downloaded and ran wireshark, and now suddenly the RDP connections are stable! Is that not just extremely strange?

@DaveRook - just started a ping as described to the remote host, during that time I set up a RDP connection, which dropped after about 5 sec. All this time, not one ping packet lost.

+1 and answer credit for the pics and the heads-up about only supporting up to 2GB! Thanks!

comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
From the page you linked: "Xcacls.vbs is only compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, with Microsoft Windows XP, and with Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Xcacls.vbs is not supported by Microsoft." I'm using Windows 7...

comment How to get a video to run transparently in the foreground?
No, that's not it. The key phrase here is "on top of other applications" - in other words, if you are writing a MS Word document, you can work on your document, while a near-transparent movie is playing over your screen, and not affecting your work.

Update: it seems that explorer allows me to set permissions on individual folders on the D drive, but not the entire drive itself. Any idea why that would be?

Nah, that still doesn't work... same behavior as if explorer was running as regular user... "Access denied" on everything.

comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
Curiouser and curiouser... I tried adding the user to "D" drive with full control rights, and it started going through the D drive, directory by directory, telling me "Access denied"! Something tells me I need to run the "Properties" box with admin rights! Any idea how to do that?

comment How to get full write permission on my second drive after dual boot?
Hey, @AviD, nice to see you here! Pardon my ignorance - I'm more a software guy than hardware - how exactly do you add a user to the ACL? If you're talking about right-clicking "Properties" on the D drive and selecting "Security" - my "Administrators" group (of which my user is a member) already has full access to the drive. Is there somewhere else to setup the ACL?

@the_drow: that contradicts what @Zack is saying here - that even Win7 32-bit cannot handle more than 3GB. According to you, why can my Win7 x86 VM not handle 4GB?

Is that limitation only for virtual machines? When I had Win XP (32 bit) on my main machine, it was using all 4 GB...?

comment New memory not working on Windows 7!
After a little more stress testing it turns out, as you suggested, that one of the memory sticks was defective. It might just have needed a little of extra time to complete its stress test, but this morning I came in to find a BSoD waiting for me. I clearly narrowed it down to one defective memory stick, so I guess the answer points should belong to you... :)
