comment Why can I get a virus or trojan from visiting a website?
That's fine, I mentioned it wasn't commonly used and takes getting used to. Down voting because you like another solution is incorrect. The answer isn't wrong. You would be better off adding your own answer or up voting another which you may prefer. At least, that's how I understand the voting system to work.

comment Why can I get a virus or trojan from visiting a website?
Actually, it's very practical from a security standpoint, which is what was asked. NoScript simply disables loading JavaScript by default, except for sites you allow; there are other attack vectors. Without help, that can be tedious and frustrating to get right. The VM acts like a sandbox, allows regular/full browsing and provides a means of easy/quick recovery. No need to use the VM for trusted/known sites if your desktop is locked down, just for new/questionable ones. This thread is also 2 years old...

comment What kind of link is this, and how do I deal with them?
What's the size of this object? Does it use NTFS streams? Is there an application registered with that file type?

comment How to change subversion working copy UUID?
Again, no, I'm not talking about repository UUIDs, but rather working copy UUIDs; working copies are the same as a checkout.

That section talks about repository UUIDs, not working copy UUIDs.
