Teen Rescued After Sending Text Message

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

A text message sent by a kidnapped 14-year-old to her mother led to her rescue Saturday, when police found her in a hand-dug, booby-trapped bunker.

Elizabeth Shoaf’s message also led investigators to name a suspect in her kidnapping more than a week ago police were searching a wooded area where the girl was found for 36-year-old Vinson Filyaw, said Kershaw County Sheriff Mike McCaskill.

Shoaf was found by deputies about a mile from her home in a 15-foot deep hole in the side of a hill that was covered with plywood. The bunker had a hand-dug privy with toilet paper, a camp stove and shelves made with cut branches and canvas.

Tip: Enable Access To All Folders In The Recovery Console

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

If you have SP2 installed already, there is an easy way to enable access to all files and folders in the Recovery Console. This requires the user to modify a setting using the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc).

1) Start>Run>gpedit.msc

2) Once the GPE console opens, expand Computer Configuration by clicking on the + sign left of it.

3) Expand the Windows Settings folder by clicking the + sign left of that.

4) Expand the Local Policies folder by clicking the + sign left of that.

5) Click on the Security Options folder. A long list of configurable options comes up in the window pane to the right.

6) Scroll down until you find:: Recovery Console: Allow floppy copy and access to all drives and folders.

7) Right click on it and select Properties, which appears in bold.

8) Click on the Enabled radio button.

9) Hit OK.

10) Reboot.

Congratulations, you can now access all files and folders on the system, and you can copy to/from floppy drives all while inside the Recovery Console.

Strict warning to anyone messing about in the gpedit.msc: You can totally screw up your Windows install if you change options in there without knowing what you are doing. CHANGE SETTINGS IN THERE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Also, there is an option above that, called Automatic Administration Logon that will automatically store and log in the Administrator account information when you try to log into the Recovery Console. Very useful in situations like this. Just enable it, and you aren’t bothered with trying to remember the admin password credentials, Windows will automatically log into the Recovery Console for you with this option enabled.
