comment Remove duplicates after filtering
I have a couple of suggestions for improving the question i.e. to help others help you. 1) Include the version of Office that your are using. 2) Include the data as text (nobody wants to type them all in) 3) Let us know what you've already tried after researching the question.

comment ffmpeg doesn't use maximum cpu power
If something else was the limiting factor, such as disk io, wouldn't that prevent more threads running?

comment How do I toggle Java on/off in Safari browser?
Try it now. For some reason the formatting of the code is really screwy. There was a new line missing before the "click checkbox..." line

comment How do I toggle Java on/off in Safari browser?
@Everett - You're welcome! I haven't used LaunchBar and to be honest I don't even use Quicksilver much now; I mostly just use LaunchPad these days. I set a hotkey of Ctrl + L for launchpad and that does most of what I want.

comment How do I toggle Java on/off in Safari browser?
@Everett - I have to disagree. If you do a task often enough, even saving a couple of clicks can be worthwhile. I used to switch network locations a lot and ended up using quicksilver to simplify it, so I know exactly why Henrik is asking.

comment One computer not connecting
Did you check the speed/duplex setting on the NIC? It will probably need to be auto to connect to a hub.

comment Why does my computer not boot?
It certainly seems thorough. If we assume the mobo is good, that would suggest the CPU or PSU. Are you able to check the output of the PSU?

comment Why does my computer not boot?
A couple of thoughts: When they tested, does that mean they tested that the mother board functioned & booted? When the capacitors went bad, it could have fried the CPU, have you tried replacing it.

Not exactly the answer you're looking for, but you can right click on the Deleted Items folder and choose "Mark All as Read."

comment Problem with VirtualBox upgrade to 4.0.4
You might try booting the VM from a windows CD or a rescue disk ISO image. It may just need chkdsk running or a file deleting/adding.

comment I have disabled the DVD on my IBM thinkpad now it will not start - what should I do?
It would also be good to know what model thinkpad it is. It sounds likely to be a problem with your hard drive; there are probably testing utilities you can run, but how you get them depends on what you have.
