comment How do I make my play/pause keyboard button work correctly in iTunes 10 on Windows?
I just found the reverse with iTunes 11 - unchecking 'Enable full keyboard navigation' allowed my play/pause keys to work with iTunes.

This has been discussed before, but not specifically dealing with VS2010 SP1.

@Michael - Normally I would agree, but in this case, it is Visual Studio he is talking about. There are many cases where VS has to be opened with admin privileges during development.

I know nothing about emacs, but have you tried it without the dashes, eg "Consolas Bold"?

comment How to configure Thunderbird to connect to an IMAP email account
There are a lot of questions on SuperUser tagged with Thunderbird and IMAP, those might help. What mail server are you trying to connect to? Some mail servers use non-standard SSL ports (Gmail, for example), so you might want to check to see if the mail server has any specific instructions for setting up IMAP.

comment How can I set one browser to use JRE 1.5 and another to use JRE 1.6?
I've run into an issue with some software we use at work that requires Java 1.6u22. Upgrading to 1.6u24 causes the application to completely not work (not just some features, the program wouldn't even launch), so now a bunch of PCs in my office are running a 6-month old version of Java until the vendor gets around to updating the software.

comment vista antivirus virus starts even in safe mode
@edmicman - Check out my edit - you'll want to grab Microsoft's Sysinternals Suite - it's got all kinds of tools (process explorer, autoruns, etc) that can help you out.

comment Cannot access microsoft and symantec sites AND I am not infected with conficker
Malware Bytes is an excellent malware-removal tool - it's a standard part of my toolkit. Most of the "FakeAV" malwares also block websites.

comment How do I install Google Chrome beta/dev for all users?
You didn't end up with the dev version - that's currently at 11.0.696.16 (although I expect it to go to 12 soon, as the beta channel just got version 11 today)

comment My Dell laptop overheated after I installed Debian squeeze on esata drive
The cooling fans are usually run by the BIOS, not the operating system. You might want to check your BIOS and make sure everything looks right.

comment iTunes sees my iPhone, but Windows 7 x64 doesn't
Have you tried using a new iPhone cable or a different USB port on the computer? I wonder if it's not recognizing it because of a short in the cable. As well, should you need to, you can make an appointment at the nearest Genius bar and see if they can figure out what's wrong - it could be something wrong with the phone's dock connector.

comment How do I change the space I allocated to my virtual hard drive in VirtualBox?
It's quite easy to use up 20 GB of space for applications, especially if you're using the virtual machine as a development environment.

@Michael - looks like Microsoft changed the way their Malware Encyclopedia. I've updated the link to the proper location.

comment Why does System Properties display two different frequencies?
Your CPU will automatically jump up to 2GHz when it's required - idling at a lower speed lowers the power requirement as well. If you still want to turn it off, set your Power Profile (Control Panel -> Power Options) to the "Always On" power scheme (instructions from Intel)
