comment GNU screen changes vim syntax highlighting colors
My problem was different, screen itself changed some colours (e.g. custom bash prompt went from orange to red) but oddly running vim in screen did use my custom colours. So just a comment, not an answer: simply the suggested command TERM=xterm-256color screen worked for me. I couldn't find a way to add this to screen configuration file so I just aliased it, alias screen='TERM=xterm-256color screen'. Screen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06 on Oracle Linux 2.6.32-431.5.1.el6.x86_64

comment Possible causes of web page opening at same time every day?
It was Syncplicity. I can't discover why it does it, and can't find a way to block it either, so I have resorted to this pentadactyl autocommand to instantly close it again. autocmd PageLoadPre slashdot.org tabclose

Ah-ha: in the Security section of Event viewer I see a process ID starting the browser that (from task manager) I find is Syncplicity.exe. I don't see what business that tool has opening this link, but I'll disable it, see if it happens tomorrow, and report back.

@Dave The former - whatever the default browser is, that's where it opens the page. - Edited the question to clarify.

comment Bat file to change group policy
This question [serverfault.com/questions/91520/… on serverfault covers exporting and importing security policy settings. You could run those commands in a batch file. From a quick glance it uses secpol.msc, which overlaps with gpedit.msc mentioned in your linked answer, although I couldn't see the settings mentioned in your linked answer in either tool on my system, so not 100% sure if this link is relevant. Worth a look anyway.

comment Delete all files in folder by date in file name
Last modified date wouldn't help - what about Creation date? You can use 'dir /t:c' to get that.
