comment What is the origin of the hard drive light?
I also add that if you think about early mainframe computers, the only realtime feedback the operator got was all the activity blinkenlights.

Binfer looks very useful, but in this case he could just use WinSCP for general use.

comment Stopping kids from using a machine for illegal activites?
The problem with DNS blocking is that it is pretty easy to get around for a lot of sites, by just pinging the domain on a site like www.nwtools.com, and then just using the obtained IP address in the browser address bar. Intelligent kids could find this out.

If you have Aero enabled, you can see through the dragged items.

You should get the option to go full screen in the client connection wizard dialogue box. Cheers.

@Phoshi: That's true, although I have not had that problem with the handful of programs I have edited like this.

@Brad: calm down, if it does not work you can always get another .exe. I've done this several times over the years, to get rid of icons that were just too ugly or old fashioned. Just changing the shortcut would not do for things like Terminal Services Web Access.

I would not say that older apps without the large icons were poorly developed, as the need for them only started with Vista. They would have icons that were made before that time.
