comment Force Windows to cache executables without running them?
Thanks for the suggestion, David. I will give that a shot. Does it matter if I use read access vs read/execute (even though I won't be actually executing anything.)

Unfortunately there is no command line argument to start it without a GUI or to make it exit immediately. I can of course start it with PowerShell then sleep a second, then kill it, but that would be disruptive. Also the option to run minimized is simply a suggestion for the application which unfortunately it does not honor.

Keeping the machine on doesn't keep the binaries warm in cache. If they aren't used, they'll quickly be purged from memory as other applications are launched. I'll probably wind up having to go with a ramdisk & copy on boot. Bleh.

Yeah, prefetch/superfetch doesn't work that way but thanks.

comment How do I make ESC clear a line in Bash Under Windows instead of Ctrl+u?
Awesome! Been trying to do this for a while on Mac OS X too. The point about the line editing mode helped tremendously because in the various attempts to get this to work I probably skipped right over a working solution because I was only hitting escape once.

comment What does Windows+Home do on Windows 7?
Nah bottom line the downvote was wrong. It's understandable but once it was pointed out that the answer was to a previous version of the question, the only appropriate response is "my bad".

comment How to list Explorer extensions and disable them?
Suspend the process instead of killing it. It keeps malware "buddies" from restarting each other.

comment What can make Outlook stop giving appointment reminders?
The number one cause of dead reminders are addins that corrupt the reminder store. The addin I wrote used to do that. :) But /cleanremnders is the way to go. You should post that as an answer to yourself.
