Microsoft removes Autorun from Windows Vista, XP, 2000 (Download Squad)

Feb 9th 2011 2:22PM Since I have to often deal with customer's computers that have not been updated, I took the precaution of placing a autorun.inf *folder* on each of my USB flash drives.

Keyboard Leds for Windows puts the LEDs on your system tray (Download Squad)

Jul 23rd 2010 3:10PM I find turning on the built-in Windows feature to hear a tone whenever you press any of these 3 keys works well to prevent accidental activation (i.e., of Caps Lock) or deactivation (i.e., of Num Lock).

This is found under "Accessibility Options" for XP, or "Ease of Access" for Windows 7, in the Control Panel.
