comment What is the fastest (accurate) way to search for a string of text in files on a windows machine?
Notepad++ is great. Other programmer's editors like SciTE have similar functionality as well.

@Breakthrough Thanks. I installed the latest drivers directly from NVidia and it still does not seem to work correctly

comment Safety Guide for Riding in a Car with a Laptop?
Not an answer, but I have done this many times with several different laptops, including a very cheap netbook, over the years and have never had problem. In short, I don't think you need to do anything special or get any particular laptop. Of course it presents a hazard if tossed about in a collision (or other sudden change in acceleration), but that is true of every moderately heavy item that is not securely strapped down.

Sorry, I should have specified Windows 7. One does dual boot with Ubuntu, but that isn't relevent here. I'll give PsExec a try.

comment Copying truecrypt containers?
Cryptographically if multiple containers exist with the same master key but different data it does make certain types of attacks possible that would not otherwise be possible. This still does not make cracking it easy though, and for many users the risk is acceptable for the convenience of being able to copy and otherwise treat the container as a normal file.

comment Can I use my PC as a WiFi router?
@JonEricson I am speculating, but it sounds like you are making ad hoc connections and using internet connection sharing. While that may fully suit your needs, that is very different from using it as a WiFi router.
