    Don't know if this news story ever made it across to Australia, but to folks in California the joke may be too soon after the Asiana Airlines tragedy in San Francisco less than two years ago: ...

    Don, while RG's suggestion to identify your keys is a good practice in general, note the two keys (on the COA sticker and the one exposed by Magic Jelly Bean) will not be the same.

    Yes, a Dell-branded Reinstallation disc is essentially identical to a retail disc, so you can slipstream the Dell discs just as easily as a retail disc. I used to slipsteam my library of Dell discs...

    I happen to be quite familiar with how Dell implemented XP on their machines, and wrote a definitive thesis, "Inside the Dell PC Restore Partition", that during the XP era was used as a reference by...

    It's not always that obvious, though. A lot of people--even otherwise intelligent people--can be confused about where the URL box is. They believe they're typing in a URL when they're actually...

    I second rokky's notion of using Portable Apps. I use as many of them as I can instead of the regular "installed" versions. My flash drive includes the portable versions of the Chrome browser,...

    That won't work because the restored image will still be using the ATA driver.

    Also, I thought the OP had already reformatted the drive so the ATA installation is no longer available to make an...

    I still use Truecrypt and have no qualms about its security. In fact, I trust it far more than I would trust Microsoft's Bitlocker.

    I have seen nor heard any evidence or indication that Truecrypt...

    Nope, there seems to be more to it than just javascript. Been there, done that. Many times. There are simply some PDFs that will not render with anything other than Adobe Reader.

    Foxit Reader doesn't completely replace the full functionality of Adobe Reader. That's because AR can run program code embedded in the PDF, even though that makes it a security nightmare. I guess...

    I don't believe this is that uncommon anymore, and we're probably going to see a lot more ISPs going this way as they try to monetize every aspect of the customer.

    I think they can only do that,...

    Archiving is essentially no different from Tony's suggestion, but Tony's is better. Archiving is for storing msgs you want to keep but don't need to see constantly. If you use that as an interim...

    You need to get out more. As Paul indicated, programs that store user data in the program folder have not been that uncommon. Intuit, for one, used to have a bad habit of defaulting to the program...

    That "old school" was back in the DOS/Win9x days. It is not true any longer. In fact, it wasn't a hard and fast rule even then--one could have multiple primaries with DOS if you chose to do so, but...

    I don't know about the 7550, but it may not have that feature. Not all routers/gateways do. You need to login to your router's configuration settings and poke around.
