comment How to secure my Windows 7 PC?
Adding passwords to user accounts in Windows is only marginally secure. Unless you encrypt the files on disk, simply removing the drive and accessing it with a different computer is enough to bypass Windows user passwords (not to mention a plethora of utilities designed to circumvent NTLM passwords).

comment How to secure my Windows 7 PC?
Instead of taking the drive on the road, consider simply hiding it in a closet or a drawer. If the computer does happen to get stolen, the drive might still be around. Alternatively, if you have a safe, use that.

comment Hard drives and SATA3
Tom's Hardware (tomshardware.com) has a lot of good information plus benchmark results on hard drives. A lot of attention has been devoted to SSD vs HDD as well as SATA2 vs SATA3.

comment Would Microsoft Security Essentials be adequate protection?
I agree with bobince, the vast majority of issues I repair on my clients' computers tend to never have been detected by their installed software, and could potentially have been avoided if the user had been a little more educated on what sorts of messages/windows/popups are real versus phishing.

This isn't a programming question, you should ask this on superuser.com.

comment How to install Visual Python in Ubuntu 10.04?
Installing falls more into the realm of superuser.com and serverfault.com, you might try your question there. (Even though it is programming-related.)

comment Visual Studio on laptop and desktop
One problem with Visual Studio (possibly others) is that when viewed with TightVNC or UltraVNC, the tooltips and intellisense boxes do not display. :(

comment Can I permanently prevent Java security updates from installing Yahoo Toolbar?
Not only this, but once you perform a manual update, you must go back to the Java control panel and re-disable the "Check for updates automatically" option. It gets turned on with every update. I dislike Sun's practices with their updater very much.

To elaborate on martani_net's answer, you can use Web Developer to disable CSS entirely or change to your own definitions.

This has worked for me with this problem as well, the hide/unhide toggle.
