Trying to read an OS X harddisk in Windows. I used HFSExplorer. At first it couldn't detect the HDD, but when I ran as administrator, it worked fine. Looks like running as administrator is the first step when troubleshooting programs in Windows 7.
Wondering what channels your neighbours' WiFi networks are using so you can choose an empty channel? Don't download another program, just type "netsh wlan show all" in a command prompt. Right click on the Title Bar and change the buffer size if there are too many to see the first few.
