comment Gibberish when printing PDFs
I've seen this sort of thing on quite a few machines over the years - it's not just you. Fascinating that what happens is that 1 is added to the binary code.

comment Is it possible to remove the fade effect between login?
Could the fade in effect actually be Windows covering for doing something? i.e., might it not be able to load instantly? When I unlock my screen, the fade in process takes about a second - is it longer on your computer?

comment Can I fool Windows into thinking a virus scanner is installed?
That having been said, ClamAV or MSE (windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/…) aren't going to slow down any computer made in the last decade except when running full scans, and they're both free. You owe it to yourself to use an antivirus - your computer will be more secure for zero work.

comment Why is my Dell Vostro 3500 overheating? The internal temperature is around 75 C
That's what I meant, yeah - hold something against the blades. You got my hopes up that laptop fans had a switch or something that locked the fan so you could clean it.

By "lock the fan in place", is there an actual way to do that or should you just push something up against the blades so they don't spin? That what I always do.
