comment Instead /bin/bash as a shell, /bin/passwd in /etc/passwd file
Wild guess: You run SSH or some other service that can do more than opening interactive sessions (like SCP or port forwarding). Allowing just /bin/passwd will allow the user to change his password, but (hopefully) nothing else interactively (depending on the capabilities of SSH or whatever). configuring /bin/r(ba)sh would be a bit more work.

comment Difference between Product Key and Serial Number
Lots of technical details: forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/… Long story short: Win7 product keys contain no N, Win8 ones do, they use different algorithms to convert to binary. Some programs use the wrong algorithm when decoding binary product ID to product key, therefore showing a wrong key.

comment Is there a tool or plugin that enables menu search on windows, like on the mac?
I think it should be possible to add this to Launchy as a plugin (as long as the application implements Active Accessibility, which will make it possible to reveal the menu contents to other programs without having to open all the menus). Note that a 100% solution is not possible since there are programs that build (or complete) their menus (or submenus) dynamically when they are opened only (and that don't care about accessibility). Maybe ask in Launchy forums?

does git reflog still show your previous HEAD? if yes, just git reset it back to that.

comment How can I make full-screen desktop applications only cover the snapped desktop?
At least the behaviour is backwards compatible - if you dock a window to one of the edges in Windows XP (via Tooldock API), like the task bar, a full screen window will not cover it but a full screen app will...

comment How do I exit telnet?
on Windows, run telnet with out arguments to see what the escape character is. On some localized Windows versions where ] is only available with Alt Gr key, the key combination is Ctrl++.

comment How to overwrite the same line in command output from batch file
In PowerShell, you can also store $host.ui.RawUI.CursorPosition into a variable and restore it later to have the cursor jump back at where you were and overwrite your output. Only an option for PowerShell, but may be a bit cleaner than your VBS stuff :-)

comment Why would SSH via remote IP be faster than local IP?
If it is dns, there are two fixes: Set up reverse DNS for your LAN IPs or disable logging of reverse DNS on the server :D (or tell your provider to disable reverse DNS for your public IP, then both ways will be slow...)

why the bounty? do you want to say that the issue is not DNS, or do you just want to have more info why missing DNS reverse lookup can make SSH slow?

comment How to delete a custom keyboard layout in Windows?
seems that some Windows Installer versions prefer msiexec /x (filename).msi instead. But you should at least get an error message.
