comment How is TCP/UDP checksum working?
For (1) and (2) see the modified answer. For (3) I don't know. I've always let the IP stack take care of this for me.

comment Identical displays look different after calibration
Digital and analog connections on the video card can also have an effect. I have one monitor on an analog connection and another on a digital connection. Even though the monitors are identical the colours are noticeably different. No amount of tweaking will make them the same.

Changed title to a question. Replaced uninstall with disable as nothing is being uninstalled here.

comment Firefox blocking certain embedded fonts (e.g. Google fonts)
I don't have any problem with the Google Web Fonts page using FF 19.0.2 on Windows 7, 64-bit. That suggests the problem isn't the cross-site permissions, or at least not that problem by itself.

comment How do I find what runs when when returning from Windows 'secure' screen mode?
What type of PC and video card do you have? It's likely worth checking if you have the latest video card drivers too.

comment Download stops at 99% and gives error
I dont' know the answer, but Internet Explorer Version - Internet Explorer 6.0.2900 rings alarm bells for me. This browser is really ancient and should be updated.

comment Can updating the hosts file in Windows via batch file cause harm?
The difference between 0.0.0.0 and localhost is that the first is not a valid IP address, and the second is the IP address of the local PC. Using localhost will redirect packets to the local PC rather than nowhere. If, for instance, you have a web server on the local PC then it will serve up a page rather than the request going nowhere. Either is valid. It depends on what you want.
