internet-explorer-iconOn web based systems, when getting automatic restarts, power loss, etc, it can be a pain with the re-open closed tabs feature in Internet Explorer. It’s not really possible to dissable it, but you can choose what to do. So you can set it to open a blank page instead. That is the same as dissabling the re-open closed tabs feature. Here is how to do it:

First open your contro panel, and go to Internet Options.
Then select tabs, as shown in the picture below.



In the next window, locate as shown in the picture below. Make sure to select “A blank page”.



And voila, no more re-open closed tabs in your internet Explorer.

Happy surfing!

xp-serviceWith the latest versions of Visual Studio, the “built-in” install creator isn’t “built-in” anymore. And you are offered a free version of Installshield LE instead. I have never been able to create a installer that can install a windows service for Win XP with it. But when it is as easy as it is, why bother???

Copy the files to your destination folder on your XP system.

We assume a few things when we install it:
sc create myservicename DisplayName= “MyService” binPath= “c:\MyServices\MyService.exe”

myservicename is the actual service name, and it is the name you will find in the registry.
When you are done with your service, and want to get rid of it:
sc delete myservicename

Happy servicing!
