comment Dual booting AND data drive splitting
Why are you dual booting Windows 7 with Windows 7? Also, hypervisors don't "dumb down" an OS. It's the same OS. And you control exactly how much "power" you give to each OS. You can dedicate access to cores, passthrough the GPU or other hardware. The other big advantage is that you can run multiple systems simultaneously rather than one at a time.

comment Block network share access at client
I'm confused by your question. Do you not have control of server? Can you change the permissions on \\server\share to prevent users on your computer from accessing it?

Really? I just downloaded Zip 3.0 and it contains a zip.exe just as requested. Edited my answer for step-by-step instructions.

Your link to the installation guide points to the file on your computer. You should remove the link, or change it to a website.

comment VirtualBox with Centos 7 minimal install, cannot connect to network
@Neilos My pleasure. When I first ran into that problem...ohhhh...four or so years ago, it took me months of tearing my hair out before I finally figured it out. I'm happy to pass on the knowledge to others :)

comment What causes CTRL-ALT-DELETE to be enabled on a non-domain-joined system?
Without more details from your end, it's impossible to speculate what happened. That setting can be changed by anything. You, accidentally. A program. A utility. A virus/malware (though that wouldn't exactly make sense). Simply change it back, and then, if it happens again, you can start the process of narrowing down causes.

Have you thought about looking into dedicated firewall distros? Like pfSense, Smoothwall, or m0n0wall?

comment what is RouterOS used for in my network?
@Tim then it means you have two different MikroTik devices on your network. And they are definitely on your network, though they do not share a subnet with your Linksys router. The private IP address means they are definitely local.

comment Display Wi-Fi only to selected devices
Please not that hiding your SSID does NOT make it secure. It is still trivial to discover "hidden" SSIDs. You must make sure you use WPA2 and a strong passphrase, or else you are still at risk of exposure (howtogeek.com/howto/28653/…)

@SeanMickey The solution is already posted below (see zeroing the volume). You can also always check the Internet Archive if you want to see the thread directly.

To confirm you should completely uninstall and remove your sound card drivers, reboot your computer, and reinstall the sound card drivers.
