I'm not the droid you're looking for.

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.

@Cuadue I'd expect the information should be in the logs on their Domain Controller.

comment Removing malware
Going to need a few more specifics here. What's the exact error you're getting (screenshot would be nice, otherwise full details e.g. file name would still help)? What sort of malware did you remove? Best bet in any case is probably to just nuke from orbit.

comment Routing to another WLAN
@PeterAlbert Note: If you like, you should be able to still connect wired devices to Router 2 and have them get Internet access. They just won't be protected by the NAT on Router 1, nor will they be able to access any resources behind Router 1. Access coming from Router 1 to resources on Router 2 should still work though, so you could e.g. set up a printer on Router 2 that both you and your neighbor could use without fully exposing the rest of your network to him.

comment Allow only one admin account access to a folder (and block other admin accounts)
@DermFrench Yeah, I just caught that. See my final note. In the end, it all comes down to Law #6.

comment Allow only one admin account access to a folder (and block other admin accounts)
But we're not talking about users. We're talking about Administrators. You want NormalAdmin to not have access while SensitiveAdmin does - this is generally not feasible, or at least will not likely be possible in a way that cannot be readily circumvented.

comment Force shutdown from a remote system
+1 to all the above recommending Active Directory. Also, I'd generally recommend against using the Everyone group. If you must make the permissions anywhere near so broad, try using Authenticated Users instead.

comment Where can I legally download Windows 7 OEM ISOs?
Thanks for the information. Can you comment on the legality of this? The Internet seems to have conflicting information. Some say that, while it is technically possible to perform installation & activation like this, it is a license violation. Others say it's not. If you can give a bit more details than just a yes/no regarding the legal issue, that would be appreciated.

To add to the confusion Ars Technica addresses the same issue, but says it is legal.

comment Where can I legally download Windows 7 OEM ISOs?
@Sathya Perhaps that's the solution, then - use a Retail or VL image with the OEM key. If you can confirm that my presumption is wrong, and this is possible, please post it as an answer. I prefer confirmation from first-hand knowledge or experience though - references I've found thus far on the Internet seem to have conflicting information. (The most detailed and probably reliable answer I've seen is from PCWorld - they say it's technically possible but also technically a license violation.)
