comment Windows 8 extremely high disk usage and slow IO
@nikoo28 I doubt it was something with Hyper-V then. Turning it on must have triggered some other process that fixed up your system. Or maybe it was a coincidence.

comment Windows 8 extremely high disk usage and slow IO
I'm having the same problem! It's so annoying! I've tried a plethora of "solutions". I've moved my pagefile to another drive, I've tried setting it to twice my RAM amount. I've tried xperf, and got what seems to be consent.exe being the culprit; so I tried disabling the UAC. I've tried disabling SuperFetch. I've tried disabling Windows Update. I've tried disabling Defender (MsMpEng.exe was reading every file). I've defragged my drive. I've ran chkdsk /f_multiple_ times. Nothing has worked. I suspected my drive is dying, but my SMART readings are all fine. Does anyone have any ideas?

Isn't killing your connection while still charging you a breach of contract worthy of a lawsuit though?

comment Hazardous materials in a hard drive
@Mokubai Simple! Make your own hard drives! Then you don't have to deal with RoHS and all the other annoying legal requirements! ;)

Except MAC spoofing is dead simple.

comment Compressing with RAR vs ZIP
A more simple solution is to use something like Dropbox where you don't have a size limit or executable attachment problem.

comment Why do English characters require fewer bytes to represent than other alphabets?
Your problem is that you are using UTF-16 or something and not the better, more space-saving UTF-8.

comment What can I do with .chk files in FOUND.000 folders?
You can always open them in a hex editor and look at them. If you can tell what they are (like a text document you were typing up), then you don't need to go through the trouble of worrying if something is lost.

revised Does Distance From the Router Affect Internet speed?
Better title; Fixed up grammar; Removed [speed] as it's ambiguous; Removed [speedtest] as it doesn't have to do with SpeedTest.net - there was just a test

comment How do I block my ISP from framing websites?
You can use Tor. They can't inject into encrypted packets.

comment Why is Disk Utility / diskutil taking so long to zero out data?
My dad's work provides him with a Mac, but recently, they upgraded everyone's. He tasked me with wiping the drive. I booted up to Disk Utility and chose 7 pass wipe (confidential stuff is confidential). The 500 GB drive took roughly 10 hours to wipe.

"Sell more keyboards"? You mean "buy more keyboards," right?
