comment How to disable one keyboard language that case when don't see it in the language bar?
I'm curious. When you cycle languages by using Alt-Shift, does LV get selected eventually, or does Windows skip it (so it only cycles the languages that are showing in the settings window, not in the language bar) ?

comment Laptop plays music choppy after a few minutes of idling
A likely cause is an application that begins some sort of scanning or indexing on your hard drive, like a virus scanner or a desktop search/indexing program. That's what I would be looking at first and foremost. Distributed computing programs could cause the same effect, but to a lesser extent.

Some more info would be good: do you have a virusscanner installed ? Malware scanner ? Which one ?

comment Steam hangs and fails to start
Shouldn't pose a problem. Steam will just reinstall its program files, and your user settings, save games, game files will not be touched. Try reinstalling without uninstalling first. If that doesn't fix it, it's likely to be a misconfiguration of some kind...

comment Steam hangs and fails to start
Have you tried reinstalling Steam ? You can do this without redownloading all your games, and it will retain the settings if you so desire.

comment Recovering deleted TrueCrypt volume corrupted it
It would surprise me if you would be able to recover the volume. Even a part of it. In order to successfully mount the volume and access its contents, 100% of the volume must be recovered. If even one tiny sector had been overwritten during the time it was deleted, chances are the volume is fubar.

comment How to convert PDF to Microsoft Word 2007-format ?
OCR will only preserve text (in best case scenario). Formatting needs to be retained, along with graphics.

Try reinstalling it (and "Run as administrator").

comment Recovering a Truecrypt password using preset word combinations?
The fact that the user knows every single word in the passphrase (just not the order) will help tremendously. In any other case, you're right of course.

comment Recovering a Truecrypt password using preset word combinations?
Found this from a SO question. A PHP script that prints out all possible permutations for a given set of values. Still no solution, of course, but it might help you get there.

comment A computer on my network is hitting my machine
Ah yes, you're right of course; it's the Apache server itself. You could try out TcpView by the Microsoft-acquired SysInternals. It monitors all incoming and outcoming traffic over TCP/UDP, and might give you a hint where the messages originate from (application/user-wise).

Note that Malwarebytes is a malware scanner, and will not detect nor remove most viruses. Use a virus scanner for that (what's in a name eh?), like Avast!. Best is to scan using both a virus scanner and a malware scanner.
