I think the original manufacturer has the best support for this: https://support.office.co...0f-4179-83d3-68a254a80ea6

What Outlook version are we talking about here?

Office 365 accounts are coupled to the account that is used to log into the MS cloud where Office 365 resides, not to a specific workstation. I might work on another location/workstation, or a tablet, tomorrow, and I still want/need access to my own files, don't I?

Should be harmless to change the computer-name.

Then the bad guys can sign in.  One thing they do is place some sort of malware into index.html, which then
affects future entrants to the site.
That are 2 statements, totally not related to each other.
If anybody, bad or good, can log into your site then why/how do they get to change something like index.html? I've never been able to achieve that, neither as an admin nor as a regular user.
Most webservers require a separate, (s)ftp connection to the server for up/down-loading of website related files. Any account allowed to access that does have proper strength, and because of the assumed required 's' prefix can't be man-in-the-middled, if you don't blindly accept a non-standard/weird certificate (that your ftp-client WILL inform you about).

For absolute foolproof secure client/server connections you need a two-sided certificate-signed 'ssl'-connection (tls is the current connection protocol, ofc.), where both the server and the client need a matching certificate before a connection is even established. The hassle of securely exchanging and then installing the certificates, and the time spent on daily maintenance (adding new certs, and removing expired/lost/stolen certs) usually makes the use of this feature very low-frequent. But, combined with strong, often changing, passwords this system is water-tight.

You can change your FF settings to start with the tabs that were open when FF was last 'closed'. Also works nicely if it dies or needs to be killed.

Sure it's not your AV acting up, btw? I tried AVG for a while, and my FF based Pale Moon grinded to a halt after being open for about a day, and nearly eating 100% ram. After returning to Avast I can leave the browser running for weeks without issues.

Oh, and another, well meant, advise: Get rid of Windows XP.
There are no excuses left of keeping that OS in use for internet research (of all purposes mad), that task can easily be ported to an up to date Linux.

Hello there this is really my first time here , so any advice would be helpful
Advice? Just be nice  smiley then read the topic-title, and if you think you have something useful to add, reply. Or ask, if you have questions.

+1, combined with the rewritten title and small-essay size post made me TL;DR; (again) huh

Well I can confirm that, the .exe file in the first-time downloaded zip is dated August 2013, not really close to December 2014 when it was first posted, but hey, that's what can happen with NANY smiley
But, as a side-note, Ballistic isn't very Hi-dpi (actually, 125% in Windows 7) friendly, as my screenshot shows:

Oh, and even a sticky-note would live long enough to clean 4 DIMM's (yes, it's normal for the paper to get thorn by the sharp edges of the connector). And I usually have plenty of those lying around.

The pencil-eraser _could_ leave some goo when used, and by the time I've found a pencil that has some eraser left, I've walked past the printer half a dozen times... Wink
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: RAM contact spray? on: February 14, 2015, 05:41:25 AM
Step by step plan:
  • Take out DIMM
  • Fold a piece of ordinary printing paper
  • Put the fold over the contacts of the DIMM
  • Move the paper a few times with thumb and indexfinger each on a side of the paper in the length of the DIMM (like using it as sandpaper)
  • Voila, Bob is your uncle!

(worked for me for 25+ years in my computer-repair history)

Check your virus scanner.

[Case:]
Today we had an issue that one of our service executables wouldn't work properly. It's sole task is to listen for incoming connections on a port, and run a connector exe when requested through that port (yeah, sounds like a web-server, but it isn't)
Adding the connector exe to the process-exclusion list of MS Forefront (unfortunately our AV solution), and restarting the service executable, solved the issue.

In npp, converting the following is not fun.

The npp standard plugin Converter turned that into this:

No, Inno Setup is a full-fledged installer builder (compiler), that you, as a developer, write a script for. It comes with a built-in wizard to generate a basic script from a set of files you point it at, but that still needs some work to make it nice and clean. There are some 3rd party automation tools that can generate a script, or part of a script, for you, but eventually, installation of many software tools usually requires more than a simple shortcut to an exe file. And most software that needs to be installed comes wrapped in an installer, often using Inno Setup or an NSIS installer (that I have next to none knowledge of, except from using it to install tools on my systems Wink).
And for portable software, there are several ways of handling the 'install' process, indeed often just an unzip/create shortcut(s), but what if the user has his own home-brew starter/menu script?

A lot of programmers editors have features like these, either directly built in or as a plugin. At least Notepad++ has plugins for this
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Update of NirSoft's ZipInstaller on: February 04, 2015, 07:23:36 AM
Use Inno Setup. thumbs up

I need to get some help making better icon
Well, the icon image in itself is quite alright, just the width/height sizes seem to be somewhat off
24  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (Android app) on: January 24, 2015, 04:31:39 AM
Well, now that it's been like a due date since the release of WL, and there hasn't been much complaint about that, I'd opt for the dual solution: both a due date or a last done date are very useful.
I can understand you don't want to create bloatware, but both feel quite natural for a productivity-type app like WhenLast thumbs up



Another finding: The graphic used for the WL icon doesn't seem to be really square. I'm using MultiCon to have 4 app links in the space required for a standard homescreen link (so I can fit everything in 1 homescreen Wink), and the WL icon seems to be somewhat malformed, where other (often round/circle) icons are resized perfect by multicon. Can this be verified?

Edit: Added screenshot:
