How can I remove metropolitan police scam that has blocked my samsung galaxy 2 tablet ? Am in safe mode and found suspicious files but cant delete them !


In safe mode, go to settings> apps, look around for any unfamiliar app. It's usually called Badoink or hidden as Adobe flash player. Click on the app and click uninstall. If it's not letting you use the uninstall option, go into security> device administrator and click on whichever to deactivate it then go back to your apps and it should allow you to uninstall it

Hyperlink other document in excel button


The easy way (but labor intensive) is to put the file names in a column (can be any name you want or the pdf file name), right click on a cell, hit insert hyperlink, and in the address field at bottom, put in the file pdf file name. You would have to do this for each of your 100 files.

If you want to automate it, create a column with the directory path name, a 2nd column with the full file names, a 3rd column where you concatenate the two previous columns to create the full path, and then use the hyperlink command to provide the link:


Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf ../excel/file1.pdf file1.pdf ../excel/ file2.pdf ../excel/file2.pdf file2.pdf ../excel/ file3.pdf ../excel/file3.pdf file3.pdf

Here are the formulas behind this:
A B C D Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) =HYPERLINK((C2),B2)
../excel/ file2.pdf =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) =HYPERLINK((C3),B3)
../excel/ file3.pdf =CONCATENATE(A4,B4) =HYPERLINK((C4),B4)
This should work like a charm and the other advantage is that excel won't rename your path locally depending on weather a file is open or not).

What is the proper way to remove my kingston device from the jumpdrive?


Either you're talking about removing your kingston device from your computer:
1. You can either just pull out the drive physically while when it is not in use or you can right click on the "Remove Device Safely" icon on the bottom right of your screen where the time is and click on Remove Safely.

OR

You are talking about removing a SD card from an adapter at which point you would just remove the adapter from the computer (if it isn't removed already) then pull out the card.

Either way, you would be safe just pulling on the device in question in either scenario. It is not particularly necessary to follow any other steps although safer other steps may be.

Hope this helps.

file handling


Use copy,  (or cp in linux),  it's a C program,  if you want you can find the source code if you are resourceful.  see below.  If you want a c++ program source code, take the source you found and do "rename copy.c copy.cpp" ;~).  It is silly to use an OO language to do a trivial utility.
see usage below:

C:\Users\ajm>ver > file1
C:\Users\ajm>ver > file2

C:\Users\ajm>copy file1+file2 file3 file1 file2         1 file(s) copied.
C:\Users\ajm> C:\Users\ajm>dir file*  Volume in drive C is SQ004740V04  Volume Serial Number is 72CF-0846
 Directory of C:\Users\ajm
11/06/2008  09:51 AM                40 file1 11/06/2008  09:51 AM                40 file2 11/06/2008  09:51 AM                81 file3                3 File(s)            161 bytes                0 Dir(s)  79,747,624,960 bytes free
