Ben,

Does Scroogle just pass on your search terms and then return whatever Google returns? I guess the really important question (to me) is: Will my searches through Scroogle still be subject to Google's asinine restructuring/respelling of my search terms?  (Which I obviously hate with much passion!) I have a feeling that it does since it appears that it just passes info to and from Google, eliminating only the tracking aspect of it.

Thank you.

Jim

Hi Jim... I'm not sure if this will apply to in-depth searches; and I avoid google, so I'm not too familiar with the restructuring/respelling. But here is what
resulted when I intentionally misspelled "receive" as "recieve" (which I am always doing anyway). The first screenshot is what I entered. The second screenshot
shows the search term in black bold type at the upper left. I think the search terms you input through Scroogle are unmolested.  :)

Have you ever tried Scroogle? http://www.scroogle.org/scraper.html

 I've been using it for a coupla years now; and I like it so much that I donated...
But the donation doesn't necessarily go to the operators of Scroogle. You can pick your amount and favorite charity!

I forgot to mention that it is explained at the top-level domain: http://www.scroogle.org/

Thank you! Works perfectly. I'm a single parent with teenagers.
System restore points are a necessity.

This is my first visit here... what a groovy place!

I got two vb scripts that set a system restore point in win7 (from a place called "lifehacker")

The first one sets the restore point with a label that is supplied from a message box:

If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then
   Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
   objShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", Chr(34) & WScript.ScriptFullName & Chr(34) & " Run", , "runas", 1
Else
   GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore").CreateRestorePoint InputBox("Enter a descriptive name for the restore point:","Create Restore Point - With Description"), 0, 100
End If


The second one sets the restore point with a preset label, in this case, "manual restore point":

If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then
   Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
   objShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", Chr(34) & WScript.ScriptFullName & Chr(34) & " Run", , "runas", 1
Else
   GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore").CreateRestorePoint "Manual Restore Point", 0, 100
End If


Is there a way to combine these two so that if I "cancel" the message box on the first one...
without typing a label; it will simply run the other one to create the restore point with the preset label?

Thanks if you can help.. Ben
