comment Pentesting a desktop application
What you're talking about is Testing, but usually done by the developer - they will have things like Unit Tests to test certain functionality, as well as (ideally) ways to test the system as a whole. However, the weird and wonderful can always happen (and does). There is IMO no way to create a 'perfect' piece of software because environments are not usually perfect!

comment Pentesting a desktop application
I want to make them crash/fail, so that we can identify where the bugs are in the code and fix them to make the applications more durable/reliable - so does every developer! But this is why we have logging, there is no way you can force it to crash every way - users always do stupid things with software (it is always the users fault, never the devs :) )

comment Issue with microsoft websites browsing
Bad internet connection, fault rendering the content, a plugin issue, MS making updates, your Internet Security software... the list goes. Next time it goes wrong, try a different browser and see if the same issue persists. If it does then you know the fault is unlikely a browser, but could be a plugin, Internet Security or their end... The only way to know the issue is trial and error

comment Why is my touchpad pointer twitching?
Update the driver from the official website. If it is up to date, see if the issue continues in safe mode. If so, it's likely to be hardware, regardless, this it too broad. Take it to an IT shop and see if they can fix it.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking.

comment Excel formulae to select cell and cell header
Please fix the formatting. I've done a bit of it for you, you will need to add white space to get them in the correct lines. You also need to share what you've tried, as it stands the question reads as if you've done nothing and want some one to do your work for you (which I'm sure isn't the case)

comment Outlook (2007 or 2010): Cannot copy the items
Sounds like the PST file is corrupted. Take a back up or Google search repair pst to find alternative software since you already tried the built in repair pst option.

Go to the Crucial website, and allow it to scan your computer - it will show you how much RAM your machine can take and what options you have!
