comment How do I control process/memory visibility between processes? Fine grain control required
You could sandbox Chrome/FF instead of the game I suppose but it wouldn't be very scalable. for non-Windows games you could have a separate boot environment just for the game. Strictly speaking, for windows that would mean having a 2nd license so Linux would be better. But of course that doesn't meet your criteria either. Can't think of any other ways really.

Holy c**p, you allow games on your system that do all that! Which game is it? I need to make absolutely sure it never touches any of my systems!

comment Multiple file server syncing
What NAS? The Synology, for example not only is able to sync Dropbox to itself but also has its own sync tool so that your users would sync to the NAS and the NAS's could sync to DB!

Why don't you simply create a BASH alias to run npm with the right settings? Or write a BASH script.

comment After getting new router, I intermittently lose DNS
Are your internal devices set to use the router as their DNS server or are they using the external DNS? Whichever it is, try switching. I'd wager that your devices are using the router as their immediate DNS and it is having problems delivering results.

comment Does bad electrical grounding mess up a laptop?
Generally, all electrical and electronic equipment made for consumer and business markets has to be resilient to this so that it is almost impossible to end up with a live electrical "circuit" on the outside of the device. Having a separate earth facilitates that, especially for high-power devices (vacuum cleaners, ovens, etc).

comment How do I know which drivers to install on an OEM laptop
You are getting hung up on things that are unlikely to matter. Do the install and see what doesn't work. You may never need to install a separate BT driver. If you do, choose the latest - if that doesn't work, choose the next. And while you are doing that write an email to Toshiba asking them what the heck they are playing at.

But did you delete and reinstall?

comment How do I know which drivers to install on an OEM laptop
That can be the case but it will get you working. To be honest, most of the control panels are rubbish and really pretty pointless for W7+ The only one I'd ever use is the one that allows you to associate a programme with built-in/dedicated graphics. If you are concerned, grab the key drivers to a memory stick first. Graphics, network (wired & wireless). But most hardware is covered by generic drivers in WU these days. You might get a performance boost by putting the Toshiba drivers on but equally you might not.

comment How can I track internet upload/download on linux while ignoring local traffic?
But that box is connected to the LAN not direct to the Internet so other traffic is present. To do more requires a more sophisticated network monitor that can filter out all but the traffic you are interested in.

comment Windows 7 - Blue screens, fresh install, corrupt downloads
Just because there is something wrong doesn't mean that you cannot access it at all. Networks are designed to be highly resilient to problems but corrupted larger downloads is typical of a misconfigured or otherwise damaged network connection (it could also be a wiring issue).
