comment How can I hide projects in TFS source control from an Active Directory group?
I'm adding the group to Contributors on the projects they should see, and in the TFS project list those are the only ones visible, but when I open Source Control Explorer they can see every project folder.

comment Any way to identify what user account launched Windows Update?
Unfortunately two users were logged in at the time and they're both pointing fingers in the other direction. This isn't motivated by upper management, I just want to know whose hand I should be holding in the future. And yes, maybe one is so smart that they faked the logs, but I doubt it. I suppose the best answer may be both!

The updated utility is at devmatter.blogspot.com/2008/10/… but I'm having trouble getting it to work.

Well, I don't have access to the DNS server but assuming I did would this be accomplished via "ipconfig /flushdns"?

I see there is a "/registerdns" parameter for the ipconfig command although its unclear whether that will force an update. The help says "Refreshes all DHCP leases and re-registers DNS names"

Great question. I'm also interested in any simple/general purpose solutions to this problem. Feel kinda bad not using any sort of power management on my home/work machines.

Just to clarify, can EasyBCD create boot.ini files?

comment How do I determine the ARC path for a particular drive letter in Windows?
Hm doesn't really tell me a whole lot about investigating my own system, and for some reason puts rdisk in front of disk (mine has it the other way around).

comment What antivirus do you recommend for dev boxes
All good suggestions except for the part about having web surfing on a different machine from development..the two tasks often overlap :) Also wouldn't want to do IO heavy work on a virtual machine.

Can you clarify about the firewall strategy? Firewalled off from the rest of the company? From any intranet servers as well? Seems like that could cause some headaches when using internal apps.

EasyBCD was a great help, but now I'm hung up getting my boot.ini file re-configured correctly.
