comment Map Drive Username and Password required
You want the users to be required to enter a username/password when they connect? Not sure I follow the question...

comment Working with dates in Excel older than 1900
If you enter 1/1/1899, 1/1/1900, 1/1/1901 in Excel and then sort "oldest to newest", it puts the 1899 date last.

comment Working with dates in Excel older than 1900
@BrianDaniels Are you using a newer version of Excel and/or dates since 1900? Excel dates are an (unsigned) offset from 1/1/1900. (Hint: try sorting them...)

comment Adding eSATA and USB 3.0 to my laptop - How much will this increase my laptop speed?
This really depends on a number of factors regarding your existing system, the new SSD/HDD, your usage patterns, etc. It's not possible to give a concrete "Your system will be X % faster".

comment What does the errorFORBIDDEN popup mean on a https server while sending an ajax post to the server?
Is the user using some kind of rewriting proxy or other tool (GreaseMonkey or similar) that would insert something like this? Or some kind of flawed cross-site scripting detection?

comment How safe is port forwarding in general?
And it's important to also keep in mind, this is only a potential exploit. It doesn't mean that your machine is actually vulnerable to anything, just by enabling port forwarding. The specific context - what application is servicing that port - matters.

comment How safe is port forwarding in general?
If the application is exploitable and runs in the context of a high-access user, possibly. However, this level of exploit is relatively rare and is usually patched quickly. In this context, you wouldn't normally run D2 as an administrator, which reduces the potential attack surface.

comment How safe is port forwarding in general?
I would add - forwarding a port to an internal computer doesn't expose a "folder" (as one of the other answers/comments suggested) but exposes whatever process is configured to listen on that port. If that process is properly configured and implemented, it shouldn't expose anything beyond its own public "interface" (services, etc.) but it is possible that specific applications are vulnerable to attack vectors such as buffer overruns. A vulnerable application may be exploited to provide access to far more than its own folder - anything within the security context of the user it runs as.

comment How to schedule a task to be run in the morning but only once a day?
To clarify, you need one to run on startup and the other to run 30 minutes later, regardless of when startup occurs? (I.e. if you rebooted at some point during the day, you'd need the same thing to happen?)

comment What does it mean if a “Unknown Device Installed” message appears?
You could try looking in Device Manager (Control Panel, or right-click on "Computer" and hit "Manage").
