comment Disable text effects on tab labels in Firefox with ColorfulTabs
Sometimes, I wish I could up-vote myself. Had to look this up again after a re-install. Good to have my old notes here.

comment How can I run a program with Administrator permissions on startup, and minimize to tray?
@AthomSfere Not really. The features I've mentioned in Process Explorer are sufficient for my interests right now, plus keeping it in the system tray makes it quickly accessible without actually making it the replacement for Task Manager.

@Col I have not tried Task Scheduler yet. If you have a process for configuring Task Scheduler in such a way that it meets the goals I've laid out in the question, please post it as an answer.

@MaxSan Edited answer to include another possible option. If that doesn't work, see above comment.

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.

comment How do I remove a user account which is invisible on the logon screen or user manager for Windows 7 Home Premium?
@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.

I prefer to avoid third-party tools, but thanks.

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.

comment Truecrypt: Encrypt 2 Windows systems on one hard drive
I don't see any security concerns in this question - it's more of a software usage issue. Though the software in question does serve a security purpose, questions like these are more appropriate for Super User. I will suggest migration - please don't cross-post. Have you tried searching TrueCrypt's website? Surely this isn't the first time this issue has come up.

comment How do I go up one level in Windows 7 explorer?
Welcome to Super User! We would appreciate if you could add more detail to this post, instead of just a link. It's fine to link to other useful information, but the critical bits of that information should also be included in your post in case the link should ever get broken.

comment Are there tools to help reduce Excel spreadsheet file sizes?
This completely side-steps the problem. It's not just that the file size is large - it's that it's unjustifiably large. There is no point in having a file, in its uncompressed format, larger than the usable data it represents.

comment Find alike data in two worksheets and put in 3rd worksheet
+1 to @datatoo - You need a per-user unique identifier that is common between both sheets. i.e.: If the first sheet only has usernames and no other data at all, than the second sheet must also have usernames alongside the correlating data. Otherwise, if there is also some other unique identifier on the username sheet (e.g.: employee number, e-mail address, etc.) which is also on the "lots of information" sheet, you could use that instead. Absent a common, per-user unique identifier though, you'll be out of luck.

comment Something unknown is failing to authenticate and locking my account
@Cuadue I'd expect the information should be in the logs on their Domain Controller.
