comment Which programs using my internet connection?
Yes, this is a part of Windows. I currently have 10 open, but I've seen up to 20+. Look at the ones that are using the network.

+1 for ImgBurn, does the job nicely. Do wonder what he's trying to do though.

yes, shared folders would be the best way to do this. You need to have Guest Additions installed in the guest for this to work though.

comment Stop UAC/Secure Desktop from dimming the screen
I think the reason the desktop is dimmed is to highlight the UAC box. While disabling UAC would work it's not the answer to your question. Have you looked into seeing if there is a regisrty key which defines the colour and density of the dim?

I'll take a look at the screensaver suggested by Psychoholic below, and then I'll submit a report too. Good Idea, I didn't think of that.

broadcom don't provide a 2008 driver, so I've put Win 7 on it instead. Thanks though.

I'm open to suggestions, is there a Debian package for streaming? Thanks for the suggestion about VLC, seems to be ok for LAN streaming, but over internet it gets a bit more tricky.

I'll try and find the drivers via the way given in @DHayes answer. I know it should work but we shall see.

comment Streaming Media Server Software Recommendations?
Marked as community wiki, potentially subjective. Unsure if there are any subdomain.stackoverflow.com sites better suited so posted here. Also tags for both "stream" and "streaming" should probably be merged.
