comment Disable virtual memory in Windows 8 is good?
"windows only use the virtual memory if there is no 'real' memory to allocate". that's not true, windows puts all kinds of things into virtual memory automatically because they have a relatively low chance of being used or don't need to be fast if they are used.

comment Install software: choose .msi or .exe?
are MSIs not more secure, since an .exe could be anything, but an .msi is definitely an installer package?

comment How do I open a remote desktop session on a secondary monitor?
this works for me, except that I also have to slide the resolution bar to "Full Screen" (away from full screen and back if it's already there). Sliding the resolution bar seems to trigger it to change the "full screen" monitor from the one it was previously set to to the one that it is opening on. Without this, while it does open in the new position, it still full screens to the old monitor.

comment Remove association with blank file extension?
this worked for me, except for the icons. (although I may need a reboot first, not sure).

comment How do I (properly) access another users' recycling bin without logging in as him?
for XP, you can do a runas /user:username "explorer /separate" and then just type recycle bin into the browse bar.
