comment Getting a list of zip codes with its adjacent zip codes
@MichaelMiles-Stimson good point. If this is a one-off calculation the OP could consider installing a trial version of ArcGIS

comment Creating a new shapefile based on an existing problematic shapefile
BTW the phrase "clean" is sometimes used to fix errors in shapefiles - try searching on shapefile and clean

comment Creating a new shapefile based on an existing problematic shapefile
by "based on coverage" do you mean that the shapefile was converted from an ArcInfo coverage? How did you convert it, and do you still have access to the original coverage?

As a new ArcGIS user, get used to uninstalling and reinstalling - and rebuilding your PC ;)

comment Why isn't my ArcGIS JavaScript QueryTask working?
when is the error thrown - is it definitely when you run QueryTask.execute? Can you step through in Firebug and verify that it's the query causing the error, and also check the Net tab to see exactly what's being sent to the server?

It would help if you could edit your question to remove the extraneous detail in your code sample, and create the smallest possible code which demonstrates the problem, as at jsfiddle.net/slead/m4GRV (eg the dynamic layer, info template, symbology etc are unrelated to this problem)

@alextc hmm, if you're not seeing that option in the Task Bar, the installation may not be correct. Can you try reinstalling? Alternatively, this answer suggests that the problem may be with your internet connection - if it's a laptop can you try from another location?

comment Displaying large number of polygons on web map?
@Mike you can use ArcGIS Online, which allows you to pay using credits (rather than having to purchase a full Server license). You can sign up for a free Developer account to test it out - you'll only pay if you actually deploy it

comment Why are map scales not used instead of Zoom-levels in web mapping clients such as OSM or Google Maps?
A slightly facetious answer, but with some grains of truth.... It's because Google Maps was built by usability experts, not by GIS experts
