comment How do I know that bitlocker works when Windows boots without a password?
Removing the HDD from a laptop is a big hassle. I also don't have another computer at hand. So Bitlocker would still allow thieves to obtain my data simply by booting my laptop with a Live CD?

comment How do I know that bitlocker works when Windows boots without a password?
When I set a password for my Windows login it still automatically starts all services, e.g. Teamviewer, before I have even logged in. This hardly makes me feel that the data is inaccessible without authenticating to Windows with my username/password. Booting other media (e.g. Live CD) is a good idea, although Linux not being able to read it, doesn't mean that Windows can't. I don't know of bootable Windows Live CD's though, I'll have to figure that out.

comment Remote Desktop Solution without VPN, with locked PC
With the free version you can only access your remote computers via the website www.logmein.com? I would much rather use an application, but that seems impossible.

comment Cannot open text files with Turkish characters
Actually this was the only option to make these subtitles work, but it makes installers and other software programs think I am Turkish, so their default language is Turkish.

comment How can I copy files from a scratched CD/DVD?
I have tried the toothpaste, it did not work. I have also tried the robocopy, with or without a /W:1 the same issue. It keeps stuck on each corrupt file for 5 minutes after going to the next with a "Data Error: Cyclic Redundancy Check". Screenshots: i.imgur.com/ijTD6.png i.imgur.com/4VkCE.png

comment Ubuntu automatically logging out within 10 minutes
Janis: All software, all programs are closed when it logs out. So I can assure you, it's not the lock screen. It effectively means I can't do anything the first 10 minutes until the first logout or risk losing work.

comment Ubuntu not shutting down
Yes, but that makes it my last Ubuntu experience (last year) all over again. In the 2 weeks I used Ubuntu, I had to reinstall the entire system twice and that's what people used as argument against Windows: Ubuntu doesn't require to reinstall. Also, I don't like the term FUBAR: It means just giving up and not learning.

comment Ubuntu automatically logging out within 10 minutes
Thanks. The ATI.com drivers (I installed early week) could very well be related. I am going to update and test immediately. If the issue is not solved, I will see if the default drivers have the same issue and maybe switch to the ATI open-source drivers to not have this issue, but still have dual monitor setup.

comment Is having a Firefox profile in the Dropbox a good combination?
Thanks, it seems that Portable edition works best in Dropbox, better than moving your profile. Although both work fine, you should change settings per portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable though, else it will bloat your install and cause conflicted copies. Also install the conflicted copy remover from wiki.dropbox.com/DropboxAddons.

I am syncing C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\1.default. Is this wrong?

Right, but I need to process the csv files with PHP, so that would not work.

Thanks, but there is no such checkbox and the compatibility checker does not work for Excel 2010.
