Installedcodec a malware? by Michael Walraven[_3_]
McAfee has reported that a program I have had installed for some time is malware. Specifically the program Installedcodec.exe from nirsoft is a Trojan "New Malware.jj" I haven't used it in some time but seemed to be OK when I did so. Anyone know if this is a false positive by McAfee? (I have already Googled for answer, no data but perhaps this is new). Michael

Backup strategies?? by Neil Jones[_2_]
I have a 500GB backup disk to which I did a complete backup of my system about 3 times now. Although I am not really running out of space, I would like to keep the maximum number of backups to 3 or 4 with the oldest being the most reliable backup. How do I implement such backup procedure without using additional disk space? Thank you in advance for any help.

How can I run Office Enterprise 2007 with UAC enabled as a user? by tim
The problem I have is that every time I try to run an Office app it kicks off Windows Installer and tries to re-install the component of Office I am trying to run. This inevitably fails because it never prompts me to run as admin, even though I am logged in as an administator, with the error, "Microsoft Office has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install the...
