For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment Wifi password VS MACs filtering - in terms of speed vs security
If you are only dealing with internet speeds then I do struggle with how you can possibly see any speed difference between encrypted and non-encrypted traffic. How fast is your internet connection?! I just did a crude test with my smart phone wifi (internet connection) with encryption off/on and there was no difference between the two. I get 28Mbps down in both cases. In fact this is the same whether I use a modern PC on a Gigabit ethernet connection.

"the speeds that we got" - so you have done some of your own benchmarking? You only seem to be speculating in your question?

2) If the task is set to run as AnAdminUser (with the "highest privileges") then a normal user doesn't get prompted by UAC, but neither do they see the GUI - it is hidden - which doesn't help either. 1) "Fast user switching" is preferable in this instance. I'm going to settle for running this program only by the main admin user and accept that normal users just won't see the GUI (which is really for information only), it's a compromise, but OK. Thanks for the info.

Thanks, I think this is the preferred the solution. (However, in my particular case there were a few added complications that I didn't mention... 1. Only one instance of the task/program should run, so whilst the GUI appears for the first logged on user, it is not visible to the second user unless they run a new instance. 2. This program also requires admin privileges, so when a non-admin user logs on first they get pestered with UAC.)

comment Task Scheduler: Run whether user is logged in or not: not working
On Windows 7 this seems to run successfully, however, because "Run whether user is logged in or not" is selected, it will run hidden (although this is not immediately obvious) - which is no good for something like Notepad!

comment How do I move my current active window from one monitor to another using a keyboard shortcut?
@Richard: In Win7 you can move the active window from one screen to the other with WIN+Shift+Right/Left.

comment File switcher sidebar in Notepad++ 5.5
I would have thought this solution should have worked even in NP++ 5.5. However, there are two (unrelated) "Document Switcher" settings. As snowdude mentions: Preferencs > General > Document Switcher > Show (Check this) should enable a docked side panel (on the left) with a list of your open documents. However, Preferences > MISC. > Document Switcher > Enable, enables the Ctrl+TAB functionality which results in a popup window that cannot be docked (and not so good if you have a lot of documents open).

comment Is a “System Temperature” of 51 degC (123 degF) normal / OK?
On closer inspection of the SpeedFan config, it would seem that my reported "System" temperature is not the ACPI temperature. There are 2 other ACPI temperatures reported (which I'd stated as "unknown" in my question), these are 28C and 30C respectively. However, in the SpeedFan front screen they only show as "Temp1" and "Temp2".

comment Is a “System Temperature” of 51 degC (123 degF) normal / OK?
Thanks. I should add that on a cold boot (machine left off overnight) then the temperature immediately after booting is a far more respectable 36C. (I've only had the machine a few days - so this morning was the first I actually witnessed this.) However, over the next 10-15mins (of being idle), the temperature will slowly increase until stabilising at the stated 51C.

@user55325: Thanks. As mentioned in comments below, maybe this is just terminology, but I thought all "northbridge" components are incorporated into the processor these days? However, I do see ab "Intel Z87" chip (the "chipset"?) on the motherboard layout, which is covered by a small heatsink.
