I am using Outlook 2007 on my new laptop that is running Windows 7 Ultimate. When I first received the laptop I decided to disable Windows Instant Search because in the past it has always slowed my computers down so much it wasn’t worth having it enabled. I was messing around with the Outlook 2007 settings and noticed that Indexing and Search was not available to configure because it was greyed out. Needless to say I wanted to give Windows Instant Search a shot so I could have these features available in Outlook 2007. Below is how I enabled Windows Instant Search and verified Outlook 2007 indexed various folders and messages on Microsoft Windows 7.
I received a new laptop this afternoon that is running Windows 7 64-Bit. This is my first experience with Windows 7 and my first personal laptop running a 64-Bit OS so I was expecting to have a bunch of problems installing all of the applications that I use. I have been pleasantly surprised that the issues have been almost non-existent though during the installation of Console I ran into an error after trying to launch the Console application. Below is information on the error along with how to resolve the problem when running Console on Windows 7 64-Bit.
Someone at work asked me today if I could download a Youtube video for them so they could burn it to DVD for some project. I remembered being able to do this with a Firefox plugin but had forgotten which plugin I previously used. After a quick search I came up with the 1-Click Youtube Video Download Firefox plugin which made the task really easy. Follow the directions below to download Youtube videos.
I have been playing around with some different configurations on my Nintendo Wii lately and needed to find out the specific firmware version and/or system menu version on the Wii. It is really easy to find this out but I wanted to note it so next time I needed to find out the Wii system menu version I wouldn’t have to hunt around. Follow the directions below to locate the system menu version on the Wii.
Sometimes you have a very large capture file and would like to extract the WPA/WPA2 handshake packets from it to a separate file. The can be done with “tshark” which is a command line version of the Wireshark suite. Installing the linux version of the Wireshark suite on your system should also install tshark.
