comment How to reset / reinstall the networking on Windows 7
My "Network Connections" (Netmon) service, which "manages the network connections folder" tends to hang (max out one core) and not restart when I tell it to.

Back when I had my windows networking troubleshooting training (mid '90s) they said that 90% of networking problems are cable related.

Are there specific windows services I should look for? I didn't see any that were obvious to me.

Ah, thanks, I forgot to mention there is no 3rd party wireless control application. Also I uninstalled the LogMeIn software. I'll try reinstalling it I guess.

comment Missing environment variables in Windows 7
@Synetech: Lately it has been happening every time, but not after the same interval. Haven't discovered the pattern yet, expect that it frustrates me until I reboot.

comment How can I limit the usage time for an user profile in Windows?
I tried using the Windows 7 Parental Controls and they were terrible. A pain to configure, all the internet features only work with IE, since the management is web based it takes a while to get the computer to sync with the changes. To top it off, uninstalling it does not disable it, and disabling it completely it really difficult. I would suggest not touching the built in features at all!

comment Remove associations with applications in VMWare Fusion
I tried it and it didn't work. Do I need to reboot or something? I looked for the VMWare uninstaller, but couldn't find it. Finally I threw away the application. Is there a common place all the uninstallers can be found, or are they just scattered around?
