I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

AVG is flagging that the core Windows Utility has been changed - that is the sort of thing that malicious software often does.

comment Move open Excel document to separate window
Microsoft be damned for locking me into a single Excel window! Isn't your OS called Windows - plural? Welcome to Window 7!

comment Damaged HDD recovery woes
There you go then - I don't see any reason to worry about which OS is better at handling a broken drive. Maybe get a refund and buy Seagate instead, but I think you are probably unlucky, or have some sort of environmental factor that is breaking drives in your computer.

comment Damaged HDD recovery woes
SpinRite tries to read every sector on your drive up to 2000 times, then copies the data elsewhere on the disk. That is fine on small drives, but if you are running this on a drive larger than 100Gb then you can forget about using your computer for anything else for a week! I tried to use SpinRite 6.0 to recover a 150Gb drive a few years ago - it was not worth the effort or expense.
