comment Transfer VM **with snapshots** to another system
Isn't it possible to just copy the entire directory, provided that the drive AND path are the same on both systems? (eg: both d:\VMs\yourVM\ or whatever)

comment How to supress “Terminate batch job (Y/N)” confirmation?
If you call a batch file from within itself (without using the CALL command), execution is "permanently" transferred. If STDIN is redirected to NUL, any "Terminate Batch Job" prompt will still appear, but won't wait (because STDIN is gone) for input. This works for me ...

comment Graphics and USB devices freezing soon after OS loads
Does your motherboard have built-in graphics? If so, have you tried that by itself, without your PCIe graphics card? If not, can you borrow a graphics card from someone (or even buy a really cheap one) to try that?

comment Error Downloading a File
Make sure you try all the steps in kb.mozillazine.org/Source_file_could_not_be_read . Also, you can try disabling the windows security policy check -- in "about:config", set "browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone" to false.

comment How can I make Firefox remember my proxy's username and password?
In the Firefox Preferences dialog, on the Security tab, make sure the "Remember password for sites" checkbox is checked. If this is cleared, Firefox never offers to remember passwords (including proxy and basic auth passwords).

comment How to use Firefox and other non-RFC1929 complaint programs with auth'ed SOCKS5? Local proxy chainer?
Does your proxy subscription provider have any suggestions for client software? It also might be worth checking to see if they have alternate proxy protocols you can connect with, ie, HTTP Proxy (which supports HTTPS via CONNECT), which Firefox can talk to.

comment lsass.exe causes memory leak
Use the Autoruns tool, and check the "LSA Providers" tab. Those DLLs get loaded into the LSASS process, and any non-Microsoft entries would be good suspects.

comment Prevent Windows from resizing all the apps on the desktop when switching monitors
... and, of course, test this under non-critical circumstances, and save everything first. My test of this technique was not thorough.
