comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
@MarkSowul I looked quickly, and did not find it. I remember either people talking about it or reading about it around 20 years ago when i was building a computer.

BTW, less RAM does not always slow down the computer either. The L3 cache many times slowed the computer because of cache misses.

Taking hard drives into account, yes.

As shown in Wyzard's answer, the "computer" as a whole, includes disk access, where more ram alows more caching and therefore speeds it up.

comment Stop windows-7 explorer taskbar icon changing for different locations
I often do not realize i have explorer open to a particular folder because the icon shows something other than a folder. My mind just skips it when alt-tabing for it. Eventually, there are multiple copies of explorer open to the same folder.

The answer, for me, was Tinywall. It's free and it allows simple whitelisting with tools to find what is being used.

Stop using FF3? That gets a BIG red "X". :) I am unlikely to use Chrome...i mean FF4+. Though, i am checking out Safari as a possible replacement.
