comment What is the equivalent of chmod 777?
CACLS is deprecated. Microsoft recommends using ICACLS instead.

comment Is Windows 7 Inside Linux Just as Good as Running as Main OS (esp for Graphics and Video)?
What are the specific details for your system? How much RAM do you have? What the your processor's frequency and number of cores? Does it support Hardware Assisted Virtualization (HAV)?

I'm not quite sure, as I have only run Windows as the host on my computers. My recommendation would be to try it and see if it works well enough. If not I would use a dual boot. My personal experience has been that things such as Wordperfect are fast enough, but games perform poorly in VMs.

comment Why does my Tray Icon's Behavior occasionally reset Windows 7?
These settings are probably stored in the registry like other settings. I supspect that a bug in the OS causes these registry keys are overwritten when Windows decides to update which programs are used most frequently. Figuring out where these keys are would probably allow you to write a login script to fix them. However, you would have to edit the script every time you want to change a setting, but at least you would have more control over its behavior.

It seemed like that might be the issue, but I guess not. I wonder where the settings for individual icons are stored in the registry so that we can just run a *.reg to fix the settings.
