@Rajkumar is this question still valid? Because these versions are probably long gone by now

comment Delete File with SSH Access on Linux
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

Enough with the bickering, if you have something to add, post it as an answer or take your discussion to chat

comment wireless adapter stuck on “aquiring network address”
This is really more a comment, we don't know whether he has all the updates or not, so we can't really tell if that's the problem either

Care to explain why that should work?

comment My computer is playing audio without any program open
Try safe mode and see if it persists when you plug in a headset. It might just be static noise

Could you perhaps tell us something more about Screenpresso?

comment “Ads not by this site” displayed by ads injected into certain web pages
So basically: uninstall any plugins or toolbars of which you don't know if they do nasty stuff. You're better off without them

comment Fastest browser to run over a forwarded X11 session
@DanielAndersson please don't go around and leave comments like that on every question you answer. Users don't have to accept an answer, even though you're absolutely right, it would help if they explained why not. But such is life

comment How can I do a bulk caller ID lookup (reverse phone lookup) on a list of phone numbers?
First off, this isn't really a computer problem, because you're not using an existing software program to do so. Second, you don't provide us with any information about the format of the phone numbers, so any solution would have to guess how they are stored and what output would be most useful. I think you'd need to think the problem through a bit more, pick a tool to solve it (Excel perhaps?) and ask how to solve it using that. If it involves programming, it doesn't belong here, but like this your question will be closed on Stack Overflow as well

comment How can I regsvr32 my controls at a user (HKEY_CURRENT_USER) level?
I meant it rather that it would be helpful if you explained the syntax, what each part means, so others will know which options they might need

comment Why are half of my Metro apps in Japanese?
I reckon it didn't like an existing non-English language pack (can't recall picking one) and defaulting to supported non-English language packs

comment Why are half of my Metro apps in Japanese?
Actually its only Metro related stuff that's affected, most of the other UI elements, like Settings were still in English. But these steps indeed did the trick, that'll teach me not to do a clean install!
