comment How to limit speeds on my “Linksys Wireless-G Home Router - WRT54GH”?
I agree with the tomato suggestion. It seems more stable and more user friendly than DD-WRT, especially with QoS features. It's not too difficult to install, but do be careful to follow their instructions if you choose to go ahead with this. Make sure your model is supported though - I haven't heard much about the WRT54GH before. Is it a new model?

comment Capture registry change and re-apply them when needed
Hm. I see your point there, and would definitely look at process monitor as mentioned in the other post. However, I believe that you will probably find it easier in the long run to use the official methods rather than trying to figure out each reg setting yourself, especially since some settings aren't even stored in the registry.

comment how to delete invisible files
That's true. However, in this case, it would work to copy the files which need to be kept to somewhere else, then restore them once it's been wiped. Flash drives are usually small enough that reformatting works. If it were a regular hard drive, I wouldn't recommend it.

comment how to add an average line to the graph in excel 2007 or 2010
What do you mean by "you can't see value on trend line"? If you want to see the equation of the trendline, that's an option when you customize the trendline. If you mean you can't see the use of a trendline, it's so that you can see the best-fit line for the dataset.
