comment CPU permanently at 65%
@Christoph "Once you eliminate the impossible whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." Sounds like a virus to me. Do you use any USB drives, CD-ROMs...floppies even for backup? I have personally bought brand new discs that come with viruses pre-installed.

comment Is Satellite internet generally as reliable as cable or DSL?
@Ken Pespisa - Ah..I can empathize, my cable service is always out...Considering DSL myself. I think reliability is going to be region specific for the most part. BTW Oh my goodness that little baby is the CUTEST!!! If she is yours you should put her in a baby contest or something.

@Ken Pespisa Imagine being born as a tiny little internet packet. Would you rather travel 1200 miles into radiation, through space, at the mercy of the elements on a tiny rocketship with only your thoughts to accompany you...or 3 miles underground on a guided wire?

comment Reverting to Firefox 4 from Firefox 6 (alpha)
@SidCool - Did they block your access for installing alpha software? Go back to IT and tell them you screwed up and need to install a browser that works.

comment How to (legally) get Windows virtual machine on linux via VirtualBox without buying Windows
@Ramhound - 180 days is for the server editions. Only Win 7 Enterprise is available in the Win 7 client editions as a 90 day trial. You cannot re-install after the 90 day trial; that is also a violation of the terms of use. You also must meet eligibility requirements as explained technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/ee388361

comment Mac can't ping PC, PC can't ping mac
Since the MAC was able to ping, but then it can't...that suggests a network congestion issue or signal loss. Do you have a light to indicate network activity that is blinking heavily? Have you tried turning off each machine one at a time and performing pings back and forth between the 2 remaining machines? This will tell you if one of the machines is creating heavy traffic.

comment Modify the size of popup windows in IE9?
You can set the size of a popup window with JavaScript. window.open has a height and width property. You may need to go in and modify this code.

comment Internet Explorer will not open
@KCotreau - Have you tried clearing cookies, browsing history, etc? These are user specific items. Not sure why they would cause a launch fail, but worth a shot. You may need to navigate manually to tempory internet files folder to do it.

comment How to straighten out images in a PDF file?
This should work, but the OP seems to be looking for an automated solution rather than a manual process.

@Nifle - amperage - whatever. I'm not an audio tech. @soandos I mean provide a replacement - in lieu of a receiver.
