comment How to add new application to run from command prompt
Putting something in the system root folder would work (because this folder is included in the PATH environment variable) but it isn't a sensible solution - you don't want to clog up your \Windows folders with non-OS files.

comment Why is my disk at 99% usage here?
You don't have much room to manoeuvre in 128GB... perhaps you can splash out on a 240GB replacement? Not the solution you are hoping for but, even if you clear 10GB out, you use it up in no time and you'll forever be battling with it.

comment Wifi network undetectable on a Lenovo G470
I had a similar problem with a Z570, after refreshing the copy of Windows, the wifi adapter could not see the router. I never got a resolution - but I had a tiny USB wifi adapter on hand so I continue to use that.

comment How to find the source of the low on memory error. Windows 8.1
In this case, it was a problem with a certain range of ATI cards (Radeon HD5xxx-HD7xxx ranges)... AMD were adamant that the problem was with the game (or possibly OpenGL/DirectX/etc), but it was clearly with something low-level. Having upgraded my gfx card, I thankfully no longer have the problem, but it was never actually resolved.
