comment How can “Install or run program from your media” be disabled?
The registry key creation date matches the date I installed drivers for a Huawei "3 USB Modem", so if you've done the same just delete the whole key for that drive.

Yeah, I got this: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints‌​2\F\shell\AutoRun\command @="F:\AutoRun.exe" and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints‌​2\F_Autorun\DefaultIcon @="F:\Signal.ico" So my guess is it's some weird wifi/3G driver or something.

comment Converting between EPS and SVG format
Uniconvertor doesn't support C5D0D3C6-type EPS files (the most common type). Scribus doesn't import half the file on the ones I've tried. Inkscape for Windows doesn't support EPS at all. Just install pstoedit on Linux, and use that (again, the Windows version is broken).

comment Why is “Everything is a file” unique to the Unix operating systems?
fwiw, while higher-level stuff doesn't use files (just like dbus or X in *nix) low-level Windows is built around handles. You can do a lot of the same with them as you can files on *nix (open, close, control, and usually send/receive), but you need to be a programmer to see that interface. Whether that's a good thing is a matter of preference.
