I figured out the problem before I saw this answer, but since it includes the actual solution (non-printable characters in the front) I'm selecting this as the accepted answer.

comment Windows command FOR /F isn't working?
Yes, that command shows me the contents of temp.txt. Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm unclear what I was supposed to learn by trying it.

comment Windows command FOR /F isn't working?
Yes, I am in the directory. I also tested with a full path to the file, but I'm trying to eliminate as many irrelevant details as possible.

comment Is there a way to set your monitor to any arbitrary resolution and aspect ratio (like 1000x400, etc.)?
16:9 is as wide as they come, I'm seeing a lot of 16:10 instead. The old standard was 4:3 (16:12).

comment How to fix Windows 7 jumpy display?
I can't find My Computer on Windows 7, but typing Visual Effects in the search box took me right to it. The crucial setting was "Enable desktop composition" - when I turned that off, all was right again.

Thanks, I didn't quite know where to find those settings. I can't try it right now, but I'll report back later.

I've tried a complete reinstall of Windows, but it didn't help. It was just a quickformat though, I have 2 partitions and I have stuff I want to keep on the second partition.

comment What's the best way to do a one-time Windows Vista backup in order to perform a clean Windows 7 install?
@John T: If I understand your dd answer, it creates a single file that is a bit-for-bit copy of the original disk. That's great for when you want to restore as-is to a fresh disk, not so great when you need to pick and choose. Good point about some files being uncopyable on a running system though.

comment How to change tab stops for a single paragraph in Microsoft Word 2007?
Thank you, this worked perfectly even though AutomaticallyUpdate was already False. Unfortunately I was forced to use a table instead of tabs because of other formatting problems.
