OK this may sound like a weird thing to want to do. If you have a PC that has no password associated with it and you lock it all you do is click back in and you don't need to enter in a password. Well I have built a home theater PC and I have it joined to my Domain so it has to have a password because it's a domain user. I created a policy preference and associated it to the PC that will create the registry key's that will allow this pc to log in automatically. But what I'm wanting is to lock the machine and not need to enter in the password to unlock it.
I have a frustrating problem, I have multiple versions of Photoshop installed on my computer (Windows 7) and I already had Photoshop CS5 added to my "Open With" menu and now that I have CS6 installed I can't add THAT one to my "Open With" menu instead! I've tried using the browse button and selecting the CS6 version but it keeps adding it as the CS5 version. Is there some way to edit the Open With menu so I can replace the CS5 version with the CS6 version? I need to keep CS5 on my computer for the time being or else I'd just uninstall it and I'm sure it'd be no problem then.

I just noticed that SP1 is available now in Windows Update for Windows 7. Is the KB971033 patch included in the update?? Anyone know?

Here is a nice little tip if your running windows vista or Windows 7.
To use it:
(note that you can change the “GodMode” text, but the following period and code number are essential).
In Win7 whenever I'm trying to copy or move some files over to another folder by dragging and dropping, the Explorer windows expand automatically and it screws me up. I often accidentally drop the files in the wrong folder because it expands just as I let go of the mouse button. In Control panel\Folder Options I already have "Automatically expand to current folder" unchecked, but it still does it. Does anyone know how to stop this behavior?
Do you have admin rights to a computer that you want to lock other users out of? If you are this is the perfect solution for you. You can lock folder out from other users so they CANNOT acess them !
Every time the blocked folder will be accessed, it will ask for administrator password. Therefore making the folder will be locked out permanently from other unless you undo this !
