comment windows command line: can I tell Service pack number?
I know; that's what I stated in my answer. If the key doesn't exist, then there is no service pack, thus it is SP0. If the key does exist, it'll tell you the service pack. So either way, you can figure out what service pack (if any) is installed.

Hm... problem with that is, it opens a GUI tool, which may not be what the user is attempting to do.

comment Having issues with troubleshooting Windows 7 wireless management
Your original post was likely to be closed for being too subjective, so I reworded it for you. When posting in the future, please consider the language you use. People are more likely to help you out if your question is phrased politely and in technical, rather than emotional, terms. I agree with @ChrisA that it would be helpful to know more information. What, specifically, can't you do in Windows 7 that you used to do in Windows XP?

comment My damaged Hard Disk doesn't pass SMART test, and Linux won't boot with it connected, even from a Live CD (Windows does). Is there any way to fix it?
+1 for the warning. If a drive is having issues, you're far better off just replacing it. Hard drives are cheap these days.
