comment Stop avast! from attacking my own programs
It didn't work for me either (see "no effect" above), but temporarily disabling Avast (for testing purposes) usually did. If I were testing it today, though, I'd try the exclusion-list solution first, (see Pow-lan's answer).

comment Can you zip a file from the command prompt using ONLY Windows' built-in capability to zip files?
The OP's question is an excellent one (@quackquixote 's strange accusation notwithstanding). Since Windows does provide this as a single click under SendTo, there ought to be a command usable in a BAT file. So it's a good question even if the answer is No and one has to (ridiculously) resort to using a third-party tool that may or may not be equivalent.

comment Regex find proper case and exclude some word in notepad++
I'm not sure why this was closed after it was answered. I had no trouble understanding it, although it's not native English. I'll try editing it a little.

comment My broadband switches off when waterpump switches on
When you say 'switches off' do you mean that it literally powers off, or just that you lose wifi reception? (I'm assuming it's a wi-fi router that you're using wirelessly.) Only in the latter case would I suspect anything related to radio interference, maybe.

comment Insert Filename Headers into Numerous XLSX files
TIP: programming questions will probably get better answers on stackoverflow. E.g. see stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/vba . Also, I find that in MS Office you can first record a macro and then go tweak the VB code that it produces (Alt+F11). Or better, record it and then copy just the relevant macro lines into a new macro, since the recorded one will be way more verbose/specific than you need.
