comment Profile not loaded correctly (Cannot access registry)
I had this issue on Vista, deleted the profile in question, created a new one and still had the problem. I now have a new hard drive with a clean install of Windows 7 and am still having the issue with both the user profiles I have configured. Grrrr.

comment How can I avoid Excel reformatting the scientific notation numbers I enter?
Sorry, I obviously misunderstood. If you enter '8230e12', Excel stores this as '8230000000000000'. Is this not the same value? You could enter '=8230*10^12' ??

comment Force Vista to “forget” a USB device
I was amazed to find that when I tried this Vista said "Nah, Windows thinks that the driver it's using is better than the one your suggesting" :oI

comment Force Vista to “forget” a USB device
Thanks, devmgr_show_nonpresent_devicesis a good tip, but no good here - I can uninstall but it then just reinstalls next time I connect, without giving me the chance to interrupt or manually select.
