comment CTRL+T hot key in Firefox missing suddenly
Does it work to open another tab in a new tab you opened by the menu, without a page loaded in there? Some pages (most notably Twitter, lately) try to register this hotkey for something they like better than opening new tabs...

comment Batch file. Variable in variable
@dbenham while I have to admit that the other solutions are easier (but probably did not work in NT4 which was the last OS where I had more contact with batch programming - later I always tried to use vbs or PoSH), I don't see why VAR10 can be of any problem - the delims splits %I% to before = and %J% to after =, and = cannot be in variable names AFAIK.

comment How to find source of memory leak in Windows 7?
As page faults is an accumulating counter, it does not tell much if you don't know how long the process has been running. (Page Fault Delta is better to see a current snapshot of what is swapping, and correlating page faults to uptime if you want to know if the machine has been out of RAM earlier)

I'd set up a few perfmon performance counters (length of processor queue, disk activity percentage, swap disk activity percentage, page faults, resident ram, virtual ram size, to name a few) and have a look how they change over time if you can see any discrepancies in these values - if you know what exactly goes up/down, monitor it in more detail.

To rule out bad drivers, have a look at Paged and Nonpaged Pool Sizes (for example in Process Explorer) - if they get too high, check PoolMon (but you'll probably need to debug your vm with a kernel debugger to get more details)

Does not have such an option. On the other hand, trying to boot via UEFI once (unsuccessfully as a module was missing) reduced the available memory by another 21 MB :(
