comment How to know if my BIOS supports UEFI?
The value I have for this entry is BIOS, however I also have an EFI folder in my C:\Windows\Boot directory, which according to Moab indicates a UEFI. These contradict each other!

comment HP 8150 laserjet smearing thick stripes on paper - what to do?
I had the same problem with this model of printer. After cleaning with a microfiber cloth and then compressed air, the cleaning page is what actually worked for me.

comment Why is the system32\drivers\etc folder not displayed in Notepad++ when opened as Administrator in Windows 7
Did you try right clicking on the hosts file and select "Open with Notepad++". This works if your goal is to edit the file.

comment How can I determine the IP addresses allocated by DHCP on a router that I'm connected to?
You could perform a DHCP exhaustion attack to see what range of addresses / how many it will give. A quick search shows that Backtrack linux and Metasploit support these.

comment Unusual incoming connection?
Is your VM running a web server? Port 443 is https. If you question the integrity of that exe, can you reinstall VMware and reboot whatever VM's you have running (if that's even the case)? If this is a home workstation behind a consumer router, nothing should even be reaching port 443 unless you are forwarding ports.
