Was introduced to computers really young by father and brother, started BASIC (CP/M!), a bit of assembler and C, but then Pascal and later Delphi. Growing up, added SQL, HTML, CSS, ASP(JScript!), Cold Fusion, PHP, regexes etc.

comment Windows 7 resizes desktop when I switch of a monitor
Tried 'obstructing' pin 19 on the HDMI connectors and 'Rigorous detection' in the nvidia control panel, but doesn't work, 'Regorous detection' didn't do anything by the way except ask if I want to detect televisions or not.

comment vlc dshow:// how to limit playback time
I'm not sure what the time displayed for a dshow stream is, but it makes --stop-time unusable, --run-time works though, so I accept this answer. Thank you.

comment WinXP: window focus messed up
Are you sure you only added RAM? I've seen this behaviour before, but only because some (unwanted) hidden application was hogging the focus. Check what is run on startup. (see support.microsoft.com/kb/179365 )

comment How do I save an image PDF file as an image?
interesting to know, Adobe Reader has a setting to override the dpi of images taken with the snapshot tool, when set to 300dpi, you'll get snapshots that are ready for print (by default the screen resolution is taken, which generally is too low to re-use in other work)

comment Data Execution Prevention in Windows Live Messenger
Do you use a virus-scanner? Have you tried to uninstall and re-install? Because the first thing that comes to mind is a corrupt exe of dll file.

comment Killing the Windows Shell
Related: it's advisable to enable the "Open folder windows in a separate process", so you can kill the one explorer.exe that hangs, and still have the task-bar (with all of the systray-icons and their state) in a separate explorer.exe
