comment Recursively delete files that match file name (PowerShell script)
@Tup: Regardless of whether it is your own solution or you just copy-pasted what someone else wrote in a now deleted answer, the point is that the solution does not belong along with the question. Moreover it was a simple suggestion regarding how this site is structured, and not a so-called "elitist assumption". Just because an answer you accepted was deleted for some reason doesn't mean its contents are to be added to the question, got it?

comment Focus and close application by ID
Yes, most likely the loop's causing the issue. Try the simplified script and see if it works for you. You can replace the x in the last line with r if you want to restore instead of maximize.

comment Focus and close application by ID
Ok, give me some time please. BTW, on my system the minimized window's taskbar button lights up showing it has received focus, but there's no flicker and I can easily click on and switch focus to other windows. Not sure what's causing the problem on your system.

Minimized windows can actually receive focus while remaining minimized. If you want the minimized window to be un-minimized/restored along with receiving focus, let me know and I'll see what can be done about it.

This is a Q&A site so please don't add your solution to the question itself. Users are allowed and even encouraged to answer their own questions, and you can even self-accept your answer if you want. So edit your question and move the solution into a proper answer below.

comment Is there any way to automatically decrease subwoofer volume at night?
Just create a scheduled task that invokes SoundVolumeView /LoadProfile [Filename] at the time you want. Regarding muting the subwoofer, if that doesn't work with your setup for some reason then just save a profile with the subwoofer volume set to 0.

comment I have too many partitions, and would like to have less, but some have a lot of data on them
Yes, if you move your files and get rid of the extended partition (F), you should have no problems resizing S to take up the free space.

Hopefully that'll work. Let's wait for the OP to report back.

Ah, so you suspect that the OP used a potentially infected crack/patch? Scanning for malware is good advice but even if his system is infected I'd expect the patch (and any associated malware) to be detected and removed by MBAM, and not the legit program itself.

I agree, and haven't used this one to know whether it doesn't provide an uninstaller at all or it's an issue specific to the OP's system. Regardless, just because there's no installer doesn't mean MBAM will automatically flag it as a PUP. Is the program specifically listed in the MBAM database as a PUP? Otherwise what are you basing your recommendation on?
