Computer monitor - Horizontal streaks

Check connectors on both ends of the cable that connects the monitor to the computer. Loose cable connections can cause the monitor to display horizontal streaks.


How to access network shares from programs run as administrator

Elevated programs (run as Administrator) may not see network shares or drives mapped to network shares. This is because they have been authenticated by the logged in user. To access from elevated programs, open a command prompt with the "Run as Administrator" option. Run:
net use Z: \\computername\sharename
to map a drive. This mapped drive will not be visible from Explorer, but should be visible to the elevated program. When finished, run:
net use Z: /D


PuTTY.exe Configuration Dialog not showing

If PuTTY.exe opens with a "PuTTY Configuration" button on the Taskbar, but the window is not visible, try the following workaround:

Control Panel

    Personalization
      Window Color and Appearance

Change Appearance Settings dialog to "Windows Vista Basic"
