comment Why is my computer using so much ram?
no, you have not told "me" (you are not explaining things to OP btw), but just stated "mhh .. it's too high". you could have put this experience-blob in there, you have not. "paged / nonpaged pool" refers to driver memory, you have not put that there or here. 2gb of ram for drivers is high, no doubt. instead you posted a link to a huge wikipedia entry. that's why i am bringing this up: you post screenshots and provide recipes without the reason and some background information.

comment Why is my computer using so much ram?
@magicandre1981: you are not explaining why you think the values are too high. in the rammap-screenshot i see 3.2gb mapped files, 300mb of it active. like in the other post: you are not explaining the why, just that some magic finding of "bad drivers" will decrease the nonpaged pool under a "magic barrier". please explain the why.

@magicandre1981: "too high" implies you know proper values. what are they?

comment How to find source of memory leak in Windows 7?
for me the rammap-screenshot looks quite good. 400+ mb of cached files, no leaks nowhere to see. @this.lau_: check out channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2011/WCL405

comment Does a router have a receiving range?
@Tonny: irrelevant how big the megaphone is. also irrelevant: how much power or if OP's dad used a directional antenna vor sending. the quesion is: how good are the ears. the megaphone was already strong enough to be heard in 1km distance. established fact. OP and OP's dad argue over the ears.

comment Does a router have a receiving range?
@Tonny: the off-the-shelf hardware is able to power it's antenna such that the signal it's emmiting can be received in 26km distance. OP is wondering why his dad claims that the same hardware is able to pick up signals which originates 1km away.

comment Does a router have a receiving range?
@Bob: OP's question is 'is the megaphone as big as the ears'. if you send 0 signal, you won't receive anything, this is obviously .. obvious. the analogy is bad since it does not answer the question of OP and since it has to be explained and it can be discussed it does not make anything clearer.

one does not listen with a megaphone, but with really good ears - your analgoy is flawed, because his dad has not only a very big megaphone but also very big ears.

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.

comment How can I tell when a font was installed?
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).
