What Version of NDIS is My Computer Using?

Need to know which version of the NDIS driver is installed on any network card on your computer?

Maybe you're fighting with MiraCast Wink like half the internet is, and have come to realize that one requirement is a WiFi network card that supports at minimum NDIS 6.3?

You've come to the right place (but as a regular GeekDropper, you already knew this, right? ... Tongue ), it's cake, just:

  • Fire up Windows PowerShell: Windows Key + R , type "powershell" , press Enter
  • 2.833332

Auto login after PC is locked?

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.

How to remove programs from "Open With" list in Windows?

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.

Windows Security Center Service is missing and won't start! - [SOLVED]

I recently had a run in with the Windows 7 Internet Security 2012 MalwareMalwarebytes Anti-virus / Anti-malware and now I have a red x in my status bar tray, clicking it shows the Action Center saying "The Windows Security Center Service can't be started". After Googling for hours all that I was able to find about this was to press Windows Key + R, type in "services.msc", look for "Security Center" in the list, and set it's Startup Type to "Automatic (Delayed)".

How can I disable explorer folders expanding in windows 7?

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?
