Is a sad day, real sad day.

This is NOT something I would see police do to peaceful protesters, no, it isn’t.

Print Spool service has stop and printer stop working

Print Spool

I came across this problem on at work today.

Printer gone missing and first thing I checked was print spool service and I notice it has been off in service.smc, try re-enable it and it stop itself after a little while…

Turns out there is a cache problem on the spool printer files issue.

Removing files in C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS\*, restarting “Print Spooler” service solved the problem.

Excel popup issue on opening csv file with extension xls

I am currently working on some files with csv data in a xls file, and Excel popup an alert everytime it tries to open it.

“The file you are trying to open, ‘[filename]‘, is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?”

Clicking Yes simply open the file, and No to quit.

This annoying popup is “stealing” focus of windows and gives me problem on my scripts.

A bit of searching comes with a Registy edit to suppress this popup.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel\Security]
“ExtensionHardening”=dword:00000000

This works with Office 2010 and it solved my problem, kind of…

N9005 Note3 LTE 4G not enabled.

I have gone AOSP on the device recently, tho too busy to do much tweak, suddenly found that LTE was not enabled and it is not available on settings…(only 3G and 2G on prefered network)

A bit of Googling helps.

Dial *#*#4636#*#* and select LTE, then turn off Radio, reenable Radio and it is back with LTE, sweet.

There are lots of tools to download youtube video, but don’t we just love CLI?

I am now enjoying it on my devices!

SPFS.Context menu in Explorer right click menu.

I am very picking when it comes to my right-click options.

I suddenly notice this “SPFS.Context menu” appears in my right-click options, quick googleing appears that is a leftover for SkyDrive Pro Microsoft Office 2013 preview.

A quick Regedit fixes the problem.
