Adsense: Insert Google Adsense Into Blogger XML Post Body

I've been searching for a way of brining up AdSense just after the body of my post. Searched high and low and most of the ways I found were not working. Finally I got it to work thanks to this post.

So if you've been managing to change the template with the AdSense code with no errors, but still get a javascript error when you view the blog, follow this post.

SharePoint 2007: List Migration / Export List for re-importing to another site

The stsadm.exe works mostly well for complete sites + subsites. However, if you want to export just lists, stsadm will not allow you to export. Therefore to migrate i.e. export and import a SharePoint list you need to do the following (painful) procedure. Create a template from the List you want to export (and include the content in the template), download a copy of the .stp template file created. Then upload the stp file to the List templates and create the list from the template you have just created. I have skipped the details, jsut describing the genaral steps which need to be done.

This post is also quite interesting if you want to retain lookup information.

If anyone finds an easier way of doing this, please give me a shout!

VMNET.exe VM Antivirus Malware!

Just had a small problem with a small piece of nasty malware, which wasn't caught by my anti-virus software.

If you are having a problem of Windows XP hanging just after choosing the username to login with, look for a file named vmnet.exe, if you do have it, it is the one which is causing you the headache. It was caught by Windows Malicious Software Removal tool, however it could not remove it.

Be warned that its "name" is VM Antivirus, but it is obviously a misleading name to discourage you from removing it.

This is how I solved my problem:

  • Seach for files named vmnet. You will find vmnet.exe in C:\Windows\System32.exe, and a file, (which is reloaded if you remove the VMNET.exe). Delete all files with vmnet in the name.
  • Search in the registry (regedit) for vmnet (not vmnet.exe because there are explicit reference to just vmnet probably for reloading the file if you delete it), and remove all references to it.
  • Restart your pc and you now should be rid of this malware.
