It would be better to use a VBscript, since those can create messages. I'll edit my post to include an example.

comment How do I keep Windows (Vista) boot manager from automatically coming up when booting up computer
Could you clarify what you mean by "the boot manager coming up"? What options are being displayed by the boot manager? Is it prompting you to go into safe mode, or displaying multiple OSes, or what?

comment Can my server “download” files?
Depending on what you're trying to do, this might be more appropriate for Stack Overflow, as it could involve extensive programming. Once we find out more about your exact situation, we may want to consider moving it to Stack Overflow.

comment After returning from standby mode, Windows 7 asks for login twice
I've seen this as well. It started happening on my family's desktop, and drives them nuts. (This is on a computer not on a domain, but otherwise same problem. So cached credentials as suggested below can't be it.) I spent hours looking into it, never figured anything out. I'd love to know what solutions people can think up. I may even return to post a bounty...

comment How to disable Windows system sounds - permanently - but not application sound
Sounds good. Odd that the sounds came back... perhaps system file checker or a windows update replaced them?

Thanks! Happy to help. Sometimes the easiest solutions aren't readily apparent... your solution was certainly creative, but this would probably be more straightforward for future searchers who find this question.

comment How to disable Windows system sounds - permanently - but not application sound
I didn't see this question when it first came up, but since you edited, it got bumped to the top again. See the answer I just posted; I think it may do what you're trying to get at, without having to delete/move the system sound files.

comment How to stop Firefox warning about downloading executable files?
It appears that option is only shown if there are multiple actions available. In this case, because I have the DownThemAll addon installed, it gives me the choice since it could either download it regularly or with DownThemAll. It appears that you can change this behavior manually in preferences though. On the Applications tab of the Options dialog, find "Binary file" and choose "save file" from the dropdown menu: grab.by/6PnU
