comment why is it true that three backslashes are needed on windows for sed replace
@panny don't know what he's using, or why he's using single quotes in cmd. But I tried a version of his one, with double quotes, and it has worked fine, just two backslahes. AH he's using msys apparently.

I notice my answer only partially explains things, as it still doesn't explain the three. Why not two

comment Easy way to restrict permissions in an elementary school computer lab?
i'd be a bit surprised if windows xp flashed up as not genuine, without any internet access. for a start, the genuine advantage update, requires internet access to download - at least it did in sp2.

comment Why is my taskbar so thick?
It looks like if you choose "never combine" then you get the rectangular window like thing in the taskbar rather than the square button. But, they still occupy the whole taskbar vertically, even on "small icons". tinypic.com/view.php?pic=20h1rwy&s=6 His one for some reason doesn't occupy the whole thing vertically. Also, the reason for his ms word icon being expanded.. is those icons in the middle have no open windows. Also, maybe if he showed his whole taskbar we'll see something that causes the taskbar to be vertically large or perhaps it might be pokki's customization.

comment Why is my taskbar so thick?
why do you have some kind of weird ms word icon on the far right that has text in it? and I guess the picture on the far left that isn't start that must be because of "pokki". This guy is using pokki but still gets buttons tinypic.com/view.php?pic=4vo8if&s=6 and when I put my one on small icons I still get buttons.

comment Is there a way to make modern browsers not “download” files?
surely squid will run locally too?! I have blocked extensions in squid once when I tried it, but you should include how, to the extent that you know.

@DesmondHume When he says without software, He probably means NATIVELY. And, i'm sure you can't. Privoxy might do it though, but even if it does, it might be slow.

comment Mother Board does not detect Ethernet Driver
@JKPatel yeah so in Windows 2008, where you made that screenshot, right click that "Ethernet Controller" under "other devices".. choose "update driver software" and follow the instructions at this link sparebot.com/2013/01/20/… which I added to my answer.

It's called the intel download center, not what you called it. I've edited your question to correct that.
