to All" Option
Whenever you copy multiple files from
one location to another, Windows prompts you with an
overwrite request if duplicate entries already exist.
Selecting “Yes to All” can go a long way in preventing
carpal tunnel, but where’s the “No to All” button? It
doesn’t exist, but you can force Windows to act as
though it does by holding down the Shift key the first
time you press No.
Windows won’t let you delete a file if
it’s currently in use, which is usually a good thing,
but that can spell bad news when trying to rid your
system of a nasty malware strain. Luckily, there’s a
workaround. Click the Start menu, select Run, and type
CMD to bring up the Command Prompt. Now hit
CTRL-ALT-DEL to open the Task Manager. Under the
Processes tab, highlight explorer.exe and click End
Process. ALT-Tab your way to the Command Prompt and
then navigate to the directory of the file you’re trying
to delete using the CD command (cd C:\ProgramFiles\3DSaver).
Next, use the delete command to delete the offending
file (del3DSaver.exe). ALT-Tab back to the task
Manager, select New Task under File, and type
explorer.exe to bring back the Windows shell.

Restore Points on the Fly
Uh oh! Did experimenting with
beta software thrash your Windows install? Don’t
fret – fire up System Restore and revert to the last
known good configuration. That is, if you have
one. Windows doesn’t always create restore points
when it should and who wants to go through the rigmarole
of sifting through menus to manually create one?
Now you don’t have to, thanks to a
VB script that does the job with just
a double-click of the mouse.
