finding size of aeron chair

To determine what size Aeron Chair you have, stand behind your chair and look near the top/center of the back frame. You will see the name Herman Miller stamped into the frame. Reach under the frame
lip behind our name; push your fingers up until you feel the fabric. You can now feel raised bumps like Braille molded into the plastic. One bump indicates a size A chair (small); two bumps indicate
a size B chair (medium); and three bumps in a triangular pattern indicate a size C chair (large).

Update Windows PATH without restarting

update your PATH variable, and then go into task manager and close all the explorer.exe processes.

Then go to File -> New Task -> explore.exe

That will restart Windows Explorer (and bring back the taskbar) with the new path

This is problem number 2 I'm having with Windows 7, it seems to only appear in folders that are sorted by something like "date created" but it's really annoying.
