comment Where can I find Internet Explorer v6.0.2800.1106CO?
It sounds like your client might just be a bit unreasonable. One solution: look up a vulnerability that only affects that version of IE. Then get him to visit a site with that vulnerability. When his system gets hosed, offer to fix it for him, and in the process, install a newer version of IE. Ok, I'm kidding there. But really, if he has "security concerns" he shouldn't be running an outdated browser full of security vulnerabilities... have you tired pointing out that to him?

comment How to delete (invalid) files with colon in their name under Windows?
Will it let you rename them or move them to a different location? If you can move them, try putting them all in one directory, then deleting that directory.

comment Windows 7 permission denied error
+1 for Live CD. That way, you don't have to install anything and risk messing up the data on the drive even more.

That is correct. If I find any which aren't, I'll edit the post, but I can't think of any at the moment.

comment Does PPSX works on any PC or do I have to install something?
To clarify Mehper's answer: PPSX is the "presentation" extension, meaning the file will open directly as a slideshow, rather than for editing. The content and file format are identical to a PPSX, it just gets handled differently when opened. Any computer with PowerPoint 2007 or newer, or with the converter for Office 2000/2003, or with PowerPoint Viewer 2007, should work fine.

comment Dual display from DisplayPort
OEMs can decide whether to include a VGA, DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort connector, or a combination thereof. However, while the chipset supports outputting to both DVI and DP at the same time, that does not mean that all computers with that chipset will have both ports; this particular computer likely doesn't.

comment How to force Windows to think the hard disk drive is smaller than it is?
@MainMa - that depends. Server motherboards can be much more expensive, so if it is server hardware, that might not be practical. Also, computers from big OEMs like Dell and HP don't always follow the standards for sizes, ports, etc. especially in an old computer. Good suggestion, but may not be practical in all situations.
