comment How do I create a GIF screencast in Windows?
I'm surprised at the color posterization quality considering it's a GIF.

comment When data gets deleted from your Recycle Bin, what happens to it?
Windows Vista, 7, and 8 (and 8.1) use $RECYCLE.BIN. @Riking You're thinking of Nautilus for Linux; it uses .Trashes.

comment Why do file URLs start with 3 slashes?
I am well aware of those, but I personally only use them in CSS. When writing HTML, I use the protocol also. No real reason really. Except maybe because when HTML5+CSS3 first became "big" a few years ago, almost all the sites I looked at were like that.

comment How to check if two DVDs are exactly the same?
@Keltari Windows 8*. Correct, but you still need to enable Powershell. Your original comment is correct. I was just confused by it at 7 in the morning.

comment How to check if two DVDs are exactly the same?
@Chips_100 Sure, you're right, but we're talking about MD5. Yes, collisions have even found, but they aren't random collisions, they are generated by a program that does an exotic thing called maths for a couple hours. Needless to say, to hash, you read the entire file and do math operations on the data. If you're gonna use hashing to compare files, you might as well just do a byte-by-byte comparison.

If you feel like ripping the disks to ISOs that are bit-by-bit matching with the disks, you can use HxD and do a file-compare.

comment Still receiving windows XP updates… Is this expected behavior?
If a malicious program was trying to trick you into installing their software, it wouldn't look like a native window. If it was a native window, why would the malware bother asking you to install their software?

The real question is why you are still using Windows XP?
