comment “Trusted Sites” settings in Google Chrome
An answer was added to the linked thread in 2011: "Basically Chrome is using the Windows Internet Options. Therefore you can go straight away to Control Panel in Windows - > Internet Option Internet Options -> Privacy -> Sites - > Allow or Deny the sites." So it seems the the chrome is now using Windows settings directly.

As with most microsoft links - the VS2010 link is broken now. I have no idea why ms keeps doing this.

comment Excel 2010: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened. — Is there an error log?
Another option is to change the properties of the downloaded file. Once the file is downloaded, select properties and you should see in general tab: " The file came from another computer and might be blocked to protect this computer" and an "Unblock" button next to it. Once you choose unblock the file will open ok

comment Excel 2010: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened. — Is there an error log?
thanks Kobinator, unfortunately I did not find the solution that would eliminate the need for work around. From the solutions that I use apart form the changing protected view settings is adding the site to the trusted site list in the browser so the file will not be flagged as unsafe and will open ok

comment Undo send email in Outlook
there is no such a thing as real "undo send" in gmail, what gmail does is delays sending for a few seconds (5 to 30 depending on your settings) so it gives you a chance to undo your action if you spot a mistake quickly enough. The email is not being send during that time.

comment Excel 2010: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened. — Is there an error log?
Just to clarify, I wanted to fix the file so it opens on any machine with Excel 2010 even when the Protected View is enabled as disabling it can be against the security policy of some of the users. As I mentioned I think I found a source of the problem. It is "data validation" and more precisely, the "Error Alert" part when that is set for a cell and the file is saved in "XML Spreadsheet 2003" format it does not open when emailed or downloaded, when it is in standard spreadsheet format it opens fine just in "Protected View"

I think I found the source of the problem and it seems to be a bug in Excel 2010 handling of "XML Spreadsheet 2003" and protected view. I will add details tomorrow

comment Excel 2010: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened. — Is there an error log?
I yes the file is in the "XML Spreadsheet 2003" format and it is generated programatically. It worked fine with Excel 2003 and 2007 but it is now causing issues with the 2010 version.

comment Excel 2010: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened. — Is there an error log?
Thanks David, I came across that as well and it is actually solving the issue of opening the file. The problem is that I do not have the control over the excel settings as those are on our client machines. I wanted to find out what is the problem with the file itself so I could correct it at the source, I was hoping that some error log would give me some pointers

comment Microsoft Home Use Program - use more than one computer
thanks Mike, I actually started the installation and looked at the "microsoft software license terms" and it indeed says under 2. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS. c. Portable Device. You may install another copy of the software on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device. It is Office 2010
