How do you choose a filter/narrowing down? Normally, the output is a very, very long list. How can it be summarised? Is there a statistics function, counting different kinds of accesses from different processes?

comment How do you remove a default program association for file types in Windows 7?
When I tried it, it worked without having to change HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT; it worked by only removing the entry in question from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts. This was in Window 7 Enterprise 64-bit.

comment Change back to 'Windows can't open this file' (Change Windows Default Programs and File Type Associations)
I don't think this solves the problem. The other Super User question, How do you remove a default program association for file types in Windows 7? may be the way to go.

Are there some requirements for this to work? 32-bit vs. 64-bit? Service Pack? Windows edition (home, professional, etc.)? User privileges?

This does not seem to work on Windows 7 (I tried on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit). When the fake EXE file is removed, it reverts to the previous association.

comment What Windows app can I use to defragment a FAT32 drive's directories at boot time?
User TheNewbie is correct, at least for tools using the Windows defragmentation API (most do): The Windows defragmentation API refuses to move directories on FAT32 filesystems. This is a known limitation of the Windows defragmentation API.

comment Opening VSD files with Visio 2010 Viewer
Despite the name, Visio 2010 viewer, is not a stand-alone application, but it is a plug-in to Internet Explorer. As such it does not really work well. For instance, for printing properly, there is often no other way than to zoom, take a screenshot, crop (in, say, Paint) and print out through some other program, say Word.
