    Well the other day my wife had me install a new program on her tablet PC, unfortunately it was trying to access and overwrite a file that was already in use, so the install wizard would hang indefinitely. I thought and I thought about what app or service could be using this file, it was a font file by the way. Well with her computer being a tablet and me not really knowing what all services and apps I should really shut down I figured give safe made a shot. Well this worked beautifully, since safe mode only loads the barebones I knew nothing would be running and the odds that the file in question would be in use was very very low. Whoooppeeee, now I know that some of this studying into the whee hours is paying off.

    Hehe good stuff.

    That's something I like about the A+ and now the N+ - You can see where the practical knowledge can be used so it doesn't just feel like doing an exam for the sake of doing an exam.
