Thanks for the suggestion. I will try this if @zoredache's solution doesn't work for me.

comment Permanently disable guest account in Windows 8.1
It already looked like this when I tried. I could still enable the guest account and it still was able to login. Am I doing something wrong?

comment Cannot boot from GParted usb drive
Strangely I couldn't get that working either. I think it must be a problem with UEFI/BIOS. Anyway, problem solved now, so I'll worry about this another time. Thanks anyway.

comment Cannot boot from GParted usb drive
No other messages loading modules. Anyway, I ran out of time on this, so I unplugged the drive and took it over to the other machine and formatted it there. Thanks anyway.

comment How to get full screen programs to recognize my actual screen size?
Nvidia have an app called Geforce Experience and AMD have another called Gaming Evolved that set video settings automatically, but I'm not sure if they deal with screen resolutions.

It worked on a Windows 7 + bios system. It won't work on a Windows 8 MBR system.

comment Linking two entries in a list
Thanks! It looks like I'll have to do this in Access. I'll need three tables: Heroes, Counters and Synergies. The Synergies table will be different as I'm just saying that two heroes work together. Maybe just two columns (hero 1 and hero 2) and I can query if a hero appears in either column?

comment The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool tries to install every boot
Thank you. Autoruns fixed it. Somehow the USB tool got tangled up with a Borderless Windowed gaming utility I downloaded but never used. Very weird.

comment How do I manage multiple audio playback devices on Windows Vista/7?
This worked for me, but I had to use SendInput {Down} instead of ControlSend,SysListView321,{Down}. I also had to change the number of {Downs} to match my audio devices.

comment Windows 7 logging off standard users
This fixed it for me. An altered userinit string was also causing Xbox 360 disconnections. Soluto had edited the string. I uninstalled Soluto and the problem was solved. community.soluto.com/soluto/topics/…

The Message Notification plugin was helpful, but the windows are still not popping into the foreground - although they do bring me out of fullscreen videogames. :-\

OpenDNS does not require an account. You can just use the IP addresses.
