comment Data recovery on FDE with information
@MaxSan In that case, you're probably just plain hosed. Presuming that they key itself is part of the "truecrypt configuration" which was corrupted, your only option now would be a brute-force attack against the data. This is generally infeasible for anyone short of a well-funded and dedicated government organization - and even then, if it's at all possible, it's not likely to be done within any reasonable time frame for your purposes.

comment How can I create an encrypted file on OSX for opening on Win7 w/out 3rd party software?
While this question is about security features in an OS, it's not actually a security question as much as it is a software usage question. It would be more properly on-topic for Super User. I've flagged this question for migration. If a moderator (or 4 other high-rep users) agree, it will be moved - please don't cross-post.

comment Firefox, how to force a specific plugin (i.e. Java) to always load through 'click-to-play'?
I'm not sure the feature is worth a whole tag just yet. firefox is enough for now. You may also want to specify your Firefox version in the question body, though.

comment Unable to connect to wifi router
There's a number of things that could affect this, and @DaveM has given some good suggestions. It is also possible that there is something in the construction of the building, either inside the walls or in the paint/wallpaper, that could be killing your signal. Your best solution will probably end up being to run a wire and set up another AP on the other side.

@moses There are ways to use accounts not displayed on the "Welcome" screen. I forget how to do it in Vista/7, but in Windows XP you would do a double-three-finger-salute.

comment Disconnect Internet connection on given time
@Ramhound I'm not sure about Windows having the built-in ability. I think it has the ability to disconnect at a certain time, but I don't think it can do it based on a duration. It seems the OP is asking to do it after a certain elapsed time.

comment How can I stop Raid call from loading when I start my computer?
@cloudymusic The same could probably be said (strictly speaking) about mumble, teamspeak, or just about any audio VoIP-for-groups software. The question then becomes whether or not this particular software is popular enough in the gaming community that we could expect relevant expertise here. This question is definitely good for Super User but, if it's well-known and popular in the gaming community, I would say questions about this software are no less on-topic here than the aforementioned others.

comment Why is my WNIC MAC changing every reboot?
While related to a security function of your university, this sounds more like a system troubleshooting question. It is probably more appropriate for Super User. If you would like it moved, please flag it for the moderators to migrate - do not cross-post.
