comment Can I remove and put back the heatsink of my processor without reapplying thermal paste
Agreed. (I couldn't type in my answer fast enough. :) I've had excellent luck with the Arctic Silver products. They make a cleaning kit called "Arcti-Clean" that includes a solvent to remove the old paste. Paper coffee filters work great for cleaning off the old paste without leaving any lint behind.

Thanks! That seems to have worked perfectly for me. Not sure if I just never tried this or if something has been fixed in VMWare Workstation 7 (I just upgraded) but either way, thanks!

comment Remote connection to a PC over internet
I have to put in another vote for Log Me In. It auto-configures everything in Windows and traverses NAT firewalls beautifully. It's been bulletproof for me over the last few years.

comment Back / Forward mouse buttons do not work in VMWare Workstation 6.5 Guest OS
Thanks - This setting does work, but with one caveat: You have to enable USB on the guest and then "connect" the mouse to the guest via the [VM --> Removable Devices] menu. This does enable the back / forward buttons, but it also disconnects the mouse from the host OS! Since I frequently switch back and forth between the guest and the host, this is not really a workable solution for me. If you were staying within the guest OS for extended periods of time, though it would work well. If there is no further workaround, I will probably still accept this answer as correct, though.
