looks like it would be overkill for my needs.

comment Hotkey to toggle internet / network communication
just tried it, it wasn't too involved at all (I'm already a AutoHotkey user). It does exactly what it's supposed to: Toggling the wireless card. This has the disadvantage that when re-enabling, the card needs to re-establish its connection to the network, which takes about 20 seconds. I was hoping for a more basic software solution that would simply block all traffic from ever reaching the card. In the meantime, this will do quite nicely, thanks!

comment Windows 7 disappearing applications and shortcuts
The files that stayed were on the desktop. It was a fresh install, so I doubt there would be any virus.

No, that couldn't be it. Only shortcuts and executables are gone; the rest of my files remained intact.

@Shinrai - As far as I can remember, there was no such option on any of those installers. And in any case, I was always using the same user account!

Do you mean that installing programs as administrator puts them in the hidden Administrator account only?!

I don't understand - if I always log on with the same account that has administrator privileges, why shouldn't my applications and shortcuts persist after rebooting?

comment Excel - Delete specific word in each row?
Wow, that's great. I was wondering how to deal with instances where there is only one title (e.g., only "Mrs."). My thought was to temporarily substitute " and " with "-and-", so that all titles are treated as a single word; then keep the first and last words; and finally, switch "-and-" back to " and ". Presumably there is a way to incorporate this into the formula, but I don't even know where to start. Thanks!
