shutting down without the start button ? by KRK
Hello, Is there a way of shutting down or restarting without going via the Start button? I'm guessing that there are command line commands to do it? If so what are they and how do I get a command line prompt on the desktop without going via the start button again ? Thanks

Remote Desktop - Help! by The Magnet
Hi, I'm trying to enable Remote Desktop in Vista. When I go to Remote Settings the window only seems to have the top half filled in. Meaning that I see only 1 checkbox "Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer". There is no radio buttons on the bottom half as there is in all the examples on the web. My windows firewall is off. I am running McAfee.

DID I TELL YOU THAT THERE ARE LOTS OF 64 BIT VERSIONS OF PROGRAMS FOR WINDOWS? by ALVIN JON PUTZKE, JR
THERE ARE LOTS OF 64 BIT VERSIONS OF PROGRAMS FOR WINDOWS THAT RUN WELL IN WINDOWS 64 BIT MODE SO YOU DON'T NEED TO USE WINDOWS 32 BIT MODE. THAT WAY THE COMPUTER WILL RUN WITH MORE MEMORY AND IT WILL RUN FASTER BECAUSE IT WILL USE MORE MEMORY AND THERE WILL BE MORE MEMORY TO USE BECAUSE THE 64 BIT VERSION WILL USE MORE MEMORY. I HOOPE THAT EXPLAINS IT.

Disk Defragmenter Question by JamesJ[_4_]
Is it normal for Disk Defragmenter to Analyze the disk AFTER it defragments? I know it does it before and then I click 'Defrag Now' and it proceeds to defrag my hard drive. But today I was watching it and noticed that all of a sudden it stopped defragmenting and the info changed to 'Analyzing disk...'. Thanks, James
