comment What is the difference between BIOS and firmware?
@safx - Well, some memory cards and USB sticks have a write only switch, so is the contents stored on them while the switch is set to ro, firmware? Man, this is getting philosophical (^_^).

comment What is the difference between BIOS and firmware?
BIOS is the bootstrap firmware that allows the computer to start up, find all those other interface firmwares, the OS storage (not necessarily a drive) and load the OS. From "pull yourself up by your bootstraps".

comment Cisco AnyConnect VPN Error: “Failed to initialize connection subsystem.”
Latest Poodle SSL3 fix KB3023607 causes this error sporadically on Windows 7 and on every Windows 8.1 system I manage. Haven't hit the Work Offline issue, but one of my users will find it as well.

comment Cisco AnyConnect VPN Error: “Failed to initialize connection subsystem.”
Often both vpnui.exe and vpnagent.exe need to be set to at least Windows 7 compatibility on Windows 8.1 when this happens, just did the fix this morning to resurrect Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. End result of the last Poodle SSL3 fix in KB3023607

comment What is the correct name for a USB flash drive?
CompactFlash, CompactFlash II is a specification, and a specific memory card with a PCMCIA interface. That's its official name and therefore not to be confused with flash drives of the USB persuasion.

comment Frequently clearing Windows temp folder causes problems with some apps
Don't clear temp files that are newer than your current boot time/date stamp. The system shouldn't allow you to delete open files, but if it was something currently relevant to a running process, it may cause an issue.
