comment Windows 7 warns me when opening my own shortcuts from the toolbar
Ah thanks! I didn't see that bit. But I wonder why on earth pinning a program to the task bar should have anything to do with "internet favourites"??

comment Force CMD.EXE to run as admin
I have checked this box, but running the shortcut brings me to a C:\Users\Username prompt, which I think means it is not running as administrator!

comment Force CMD.EXE to run as admin
Pressing <shift>+<ctrl>+<enter> gives a message box "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe: Unspecified error"... what could this mean? Windows 7 home premium.

comment Windows Firewall and Android's internet passthrough connection
@ivan, OK I mean "allow connection" through this port, as described in bbatman's answer. Depends on the firewall you have, I was using Eset, so went as per vikas's answer.

comment fix Windows 7 corrupted user profile, without destroying settings?
@Zoredache I use an archiving system and have backups of all my files, but not of ntuser.dat unfortunately.... I think you are right that I should also back up ntuser.dat, although I think it's more tricky because I don't think it's possible to copy that file while logged in to the same profile.

@and31415 Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing. Have to power off by holding the power button for 5 seconds!

comment Any way to detect what is disabling the screensaver?
I get "The power efficiency diagnostic library (energy.dll) could not be loaded". Why might that be? (the Power service is started)
