Is there something similar to the about:permissions steps for Firefox 30's blocking of all plugins?

comment Windows 8 resetting permissions
@harrymc Safe Mode does seem to prevent the permissions from reverting.

@pnuts I have been doing so. No one has pointed out how IIS' configuration would be remotely relevant, so I haven't added those details.

1. Intranet, users access it simply by going to http://computername/. 2. Nope. 3. Yes, same result. Upon reboot, IUSR is removed from the folder. 4. I don't believe it's configured as either a Virtual Folder or Application. The site is the Default Web Site. I configured it so its Physical Path is the base folder of this folder tree. When I click 'View Applications' or 'View Virtual Directories', I'm presented with an empty list.

@harrymc Thanks for the tip, but that group got removed from the folder's ACL after a reboot too.

comment View video/game content over remote session in realtime
I'd recommend looking into the software people use to make those ustream, twitch.tv, etc streams. I'd bet they can be configured to stream to another computer on your LAN.

@user22105 Sorry for the delay, I just updated with instructions for how to get Twitch video files downloaded, and then play them on your iPad.

I made both images clickable in my suggested edit. Makes the full-size images nice and easy to access.

comment Windows 8 resetting permissions
@Ramhound It started after upgrading to Windows 8. AFAIK, IIS should be irrelevant to the issue of folder permissions changing. I only included it to be thorough in case it was relevant. Unless you can point me to some documentation that shows that IIS is known to change permissions?

@Ramhound Umm, I'm using the version that's built in to Windows. The errors I'm getting have an HTML page title of 'IIS 8 <something>', so AFAIK, I'm now on IIS 8.

comment Windows 8 / Live ID / Service logon credentials
@Dhh Could you do me a favor and confirm something? Go to C:\Users. Is this person's username the same as their home folder name? I want to update my answer to be useful for people with Windows 8 non-Pro.

@dhh Hmm, let me do some digging into my install. Mine was a W7->W8 upgrade.

comment Find vs Findstr results
@djangofan I'm having issues ginning up fake files for some reason. Making a small text file with the bare minimum of what I think is a sufficient simulation (e.g. "|Test^Foo") ends up working with findstr.
