Folders opening in new window - vista & IE 8

This fix is for the vista sp1 update that includes IE 8. Once IE 8 is installed, the folders open in new windows even though the 'open each folder in the same window' option is selected.

This can be corrected by running the IE 8 in administrator mode just once. This will fix the issue. The reason for the issue is still unknown. I'll update it once I get the reason.

(I tried everything to fix this. So thought I could share it with everybody.)

Life on the changing path - World in front of a computer

Its been a really really long time since I blogged.

I don't know if it is just that I don't get time to blog or am I being consumed in this fast moving world?. Usually Saturdays and Sundays were the boring days of the week as I didn't have anything to do. But now it seems that they are the most important things that I wait for when each week starts as I can take rest only on those days. Before I stepped out into this world, I used to have time to think. I used to play around with different technologies. I used to watch movies as they release. Now I don't even know what movie in the theater near my house. I used to have dinner before 9:30 at night. But now even that is not starting before 11 at night. I don't even know what dress my father is gonna wear for office? or what dish my mother is gonna cook?. I'm can see that I'm changing and the worst part is my health. I used to be one of the bulky boys of the class weighing in the mid 80's. Now I find it hard to believe that I weigh a little over 60 kgs. My food habits have changed and So have I.

Is this change good for me?
Is this the change I longed for during my engineering course?
Is this the change my parents wanted for me?
Is this the change that I supposed was gonna make my family happier?
Am I still suppose to be the guy who enjoys everything as it comes?


Have I become the personification of everything that one doesn't want to be?

IT has changed India and Indians and I now understand how much?
I suppose there are people out there who would agree with my view.

As I write this, I'm struck by the fact that I have to complete some important documents for some project related work tomorrow. I'm not sure that I'll be able to continue on blogging as I used to. But I'll try doing whatever I can.

Wish someone could foretell my future. Atleast I'll prepare myself for it.
