In the timecomx vid whenever you click it makes a little water circle thing.  What program are you running?

Thank you very much for the article. Good stuff. I'm using FolderSpy now and it's what I've been looking for (I came very close to writing my own).

I think I can package it, now, with a freebie Java application I wrote for my organization.  My application needs to fire whenever a certain file type is saved on a local machine.  The trouble is... can I pass event specifics (such as file path) to my application when it launches or will I just have to use "Recent Files" / look manually for the latest written file type in a directory?

Too bad you didn't include AutoIt, that is the best and easiest scripting language

You can stop Windows from pestering you about updates by running 1 command in console:
net stop wuauserv

And then restore the nagging:
net start wuauserv

Or create a batch file (notepad -> paste -> save as stop.bat/start.bat).

Or do the reboot :)

It's very annoying when you don't want to reboot. These settings are even better!

1. Click the Start menu and type "gpedit.msc" (without quotes) in the search line (or Run) and press the Enter key.

2. In the Local Group Policy Editor, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Temp...lates, expand Windows Components, and then click Windows Update.

3. In the details pane, double click No auto-restart for scheduled Automatic Update installation options, and set the option to Enabled. Click OK.

4. In the details pane, double click Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations, set the option to Enabled, and change the default value to 1440 minutes, which is one day. Click OK.
