comment Is there a way to compose messages in thunderbird >= 8 with width 100 (or any other arbitrary value)
@Serge Stroobandt: Which version of Thunderbird are you talking about. In Thunderbird 31.6 (Windows) the Config Editor is still available through the path mentioned in my answer.

comment Releasing disk space on guest, reduces free space on host
@Vinayak : You can use vmware guest tools to shrink the size of the image. The tool copies every used sector into a new vmware disk image and then deletes the old image. Note that you require nearly double the disk space of the vmware disk image during this process.

comment Hiding non-user accounts in Windows 7
I am sorry but I have to disagree the account will not be "disabled". It just prevents the user account from being displayed in user account lists. In any "runas" command that allows to enter the user name as a string you can use it.

comment How can I backtrack to find out which application created a registry key?
Your main problem is that you are trying to disinfect an infected running system. If you really want to remove a virus from a system boot a clean system (e.g. from boot cd) and use it for virus scanning and removal. Otherwise you will not succeed as a typical virus consists of multiple of executables checking each other and restarting/restoring them.

comment Why Virtual Box won't give me option to create 64 bits guests?
Other software may use and lock the VT-x modes. I had for example some issues with Intel HAXM.
