comment Does compressing all files on a 50% full disk partition slow down performance?
Somewhat related, but that question does not address at which point of % full should disk compression be performed, nor does it address which files should or should not be compressed.

comment Disable Outlook 2003 splash screen when auto-starting
FYI: reshack works even on Win7 and is a whole lot easier to use than that SplashKiller piece-of-junk!

You only mentioned "It's working for Office XP and 2003" but did not mention on which versions of Windows this product works on, plus the website doesn't mention which Windows SplashKiller works on.

comment How can I locate where this splash screen is stored on my computer?
Suppressing the splash screen wouldn't make it totally anonymous because the credentials remain the same, there are other references of it displayed elsewhere and this product is free. Microsoft has bigger worries like bootleg copies of Windows, Office, etc.

I looked at vpc.exe with the HxD hex editor, but could not find any file paths for any images in the exe. If this image is embedded within vpc.exe, what would its header info look like in hex format?

I strongly urge you to not mess with the BIOS, as you can render your motherboard useless!

comment How can I disable Windows 7's default WiFi drivers?
I do that anyway, but I would just like to do away with Win7's WLAN manager all together, amongst other undesirable features, or even do away totally with Win7 and go back to Vista SP2. It seems like just about everything that comes out with newer versions wants to take more and more control away from the user and railroad things down your throat, like it or not. I hope another class action law suit emerges against Microsoft! The status quo of the computer industry has become more of a circus, being driven by greed!

This program didn't work on WinVista, so I removed it!

I previously tried this on administrator:command prompt, but it didn't work. I also disabled this service with msconfig, rebooted and it still respawns!.. Win7 is detecting it as not running, enables it and strats it back up, thus forcing it to be active. That's real crummy on Microsoft's part!

because the Netgear utility program is more robust. The Win 7 utility shows one bar signal strength and Netgear's is showing four bars. I'd like to do away with Win7's driver and utility all together and only rely on Netgears driver and utility programs.
