comment .htacess virus - does anyone know how to get rid of this thing?
@Harpreet - I agree with @Hello71 that it's bad form to just copy an answer verbatim from elsewhere, especially since you are now getting credit for somebody else's answer. I am not voting down your question, but I did edit it to make it more clear where the info originated from, and I would suggest making your answer community wiki, since that would prevent you from gaining unfair rep points from upvotes for an answer you didn't write (you'd keep what you already got), and would make it possible for any user to help contribute to this answer.

comment Laptop not powering down when lid is closed, but when lid is opened
Has there been any damage to the computer's screen/lid area? I have an old Dell which I've dropped a few times, and that messed up the trigger switch for detecting whether the lid is closed or not. Because of this, it only seems to detect that the lid is "closed" when it is being opened past a certain point.

comment Drag a windows that has no title bar and Alt-Space doesn't work
@subanki - I completely agree, this is a great question and fantastic subsequent answer. If you like his question, you should vote it up! It would be nice to see a way built-in to Windows, but I sort of doubt that exists, so this is quite handy.

@Nano8Blazex, it looks like the download contains both an AHK and a compiled EXE, so you wouldn't need AutoHotKey installed to use it.

comment Tool to adjust monitor's backlight brightness in Windows
Interesting. Sounds like it might be specific to the video card's drivers then... I've never seen anything like that before.

comment How to resolve odd behavior on wireless router, connections hang until DHCP lease is renewed
The other question would be if your router responds to ping under normal circumstances. If not, it might be set not to respond to ICMP packets.
