comment How can I tell when a font was installed?
i tested several methods of creating a file (copy, from winscp, from 7z, by creating a hardlink): the create-time was always set to the current time. so, the things i thought in my previous comment are false. create-time is always set to what the current time actually is (allthough the winapi allows the change of the create-time). @grawity's answer is correct.

fyi: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/… and i think windows keeps the creation time IF the fs where the file in question originates from supports create-time as well or the tool which copies over the file to the destination.

comment Windows tells me there isn't enough memory and asks to close Firefox, but why this actually happens is unclear
watch: channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2011/WCL405 .. after that, play around with vmmap and rammap (both tools of the sysinternal suite).

@dan1111: since everything is computed it is indeed possible in theory. because one can change the computation. feel free to answer the solution / how to change that computation in an answer.

comment Where does Windows 7 waste my RAM?
there are a lot of possible explanations: ram fragmentation, bigger pointer-size (overhead), different versions of the programs you use which handle things differently (eg, browser like to store things in cache-files. these cache files are also kept in ram. if a browser changed the way it handles the cache file it might prevent the OS from releasing that file from the ram). ram fragmentation for example is quite common: program 1 needs x amounts of tiny chunks. when program 2 launches, there might be not enough bigger chunks left, no matter how many free tiny chunks are left.

comment Where does Windows 7 waste my RAM?
@jaraics: watch the video i stated. the dude talking about the ram wrote the sysinternal suite, rammap as well. windows releases the ram based on several criteria (there are multiple subcategories in the "standby" section)
