comment How can I parse a .LNK shortcut from the Command Prompt in Windows?
@davexpression: Can you explain why Darius' suggestion is not practical? That's the proper way of doing things, so that when you click on the CMD shortcut it will automatically open at your specified directory.

@JeffreyZhao: Post your MuiCache find as an answer. Since HKCR combines HKLM and HKCU, you can also edit the values under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\MuiCache.

comment Make windows font work in linux Mint and vice versa
@Skynniman: Ok, then try mklink to relocate Windows\Fonts and see if it works, then let us know too. :)

@Skynniman: Try the Linux approach mentioned above first. That's more likely to work.

I don't know if Windows will take kindly to a similar symbolic/hard link (using mklink) to a custom fonts folder. If yes then you can possibly have one common fonts folder for both OSes on a third small (FAT32) partition. That would solve your first problem of having to reinstall fonts after all your OS wipes.

How many fonts do you have that you're running short of disk space for them?!

comment PC Security and Cyber Bullying
Format, reinstall OS, install good anti-malware suite that includes firewall or a separate software firewall, apply common sense when it comes to opening questionable files/links and so on. PC security is too vast a subject to be summarised in a short answer here.

comment Does Windows 7 actually defragment an SSD drive if you tell it to?
@Shaamaan: No, I meant 65 - it's the value stored in the registry. See the TechNet blog post referred to in the answer I linked to above.

comment How can I mark files with badges in Windows?
@csomakk: Cool app! Strictly speaking though it doesn't mark files with badges in Windows itself (it's kinda like using a separate spreadsheet or DB to mark viewed files), but quite useful nevertheless.

@Jeff: Did you try the latest version i.e. 1.90? Did you try running the program as admin? If it still fails perhaps Process Monitor can tell you why.
