Came across an easy way to download youtube videos from this youtube:

add "ss" in front of in the link of the video you're watching.

This worked great in my test.

Office 2010 Office Customization Tool (OCT) adjustments

This post documents the changes I make to the Office 2010 Customization Tool to get settings the way I like them.

Microsoft Outlook 2010 -> Outlook Options -> Preferences -> Junk E-Mail -> Enabled
Set to No Protection

Microsoft Outlook 2010 -> Outlook Options -> Other -> Autoarchive
Disable FileArchive -> Enabled

Microsoft Outlook 2010 -> Outlook Options -> Other -> Autoarchive
Autoarchive settings -> Enabled
Clear the box for Turn on Autoarchive

Microsoft Office 2010 -> Privacy -> Trust Settings
Disable Opt-in -> Enabled
Enable Customer Experience -> Enabled
Automatically receive -> Enabled

I also add shortcuts for Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to the desktop in Configure Shortcuts.

When using Office365 or Google Apps as I only do, I do not configure the mail profile.  Other than inserting the installation key in Licensing and User Interface, I don't make any changes.
