Note that this doesn't work with sudo. You really need to use the su command first to get it working.

comment What does the encryption setting of uTorrent do?
-1 what kinda answer is that when you only cite what we already know? It doesn't even answer the second question which is by far the most interesting.

comment Limit which fonts Chrome can use
@Carsten Never, unfortunately. I mostly use Readability's bookmarklet when fonts get really bad. Good to know I'm not the only one with this problem though! But why don't you upvote the question if you want to know the same? That's what the voting scheme is for after all.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite having a considerable amount of free memory?
@DanNeely Avoiding using unnecessary resources speeds things up, it doesn't slow things down, so that quite misses the point imo. Besides, if 2gb is obsolete then I think around 60% of the users in the western world (or 95% in other countries) are running obsolete systems. Definition of obsolete: "No longer produced or used".

@AllInOne Right, hadn't taken x64 into consideration.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite having a considerable amount of free memory?
Since when is 2GB RAM not enough for Windows 7? Can't say that it works fast, but I'd even argue two Windows Server 2008 virtual machines can work on a 2GB Windows 7 host.

comment What do i look for while buying a mouse?
Right. I don't really notice the difference between my 800DPI mouse and a 3500 one (besides the increase in cursor speed), but that makes sense.

comment What do i look for while buying a mouse?
I don't understand how DPI is of any importance. Can't you just set the mouse speed higher or lower in your OS or the game? Isn't the maximum trackable acceleration much more important (so that the mouse keeps track of where it is even when moving it very fast, for example in games to turn around and shoot instantly)?

comment Keyboard shortcut to minimize Remote Desktop
Very good to know this, though it doesn't direct all other input to the remote machine. Using windowskey+E for example is performed locally. +1 anyway.

comment Random 'Drivers installed message' appeared and lost internet connection suddenly
This is a hardware or software issue, not a security issue. It might be, but a lamp going dark can also be a security issue while it probably just burned out. Your network hardware got reconnected, which is probably a bug in the driver or something, and the cause is not related to security.
