This is not an answer to your query, but I recommend using Delicious.com for saving links that you may want to find again in the future.

comment Does a USB Headset require any Specific Soundcard?
Hardware accelerated sound is only good for offloading the CPU, which is only really relevant when playing games; it does not affect the sound quality. I don't play games, but it is my understanding that even EAX 5.0 is no longer hardware accelerated from Vista onwards.

The second link Gilles gave has a nifty solution that uses FOR and no extra tools.

comment How do I add cmd shortcuts in windows xp?
Okay, thanks - I get your point. I cannot even remember how I found out how findstr manages to deal with the psinfo output that way. The reason I did not use grep is that I find it a lot easier to only keep scripts and standalone executables in my command director, which I sync with all my machines and keep on USB flash drive. If there is a way to do that with the GnuWin32 commands, I'll look into that again. I totally forgot that setx is not included in XP as standard.

So what are you saying? Use grep instead of findstr? Grep is not a standard CMD command, while findstr is. The GnuWin32 tools cannot be simply placed in a synced directory or flash drive either, so I cannot guarantee that I will have it on any machine I happen to be using.
