comment Install of Update for KB2862330 fails with error 800B0100
If the System Update Readiness Tool encounters problems while running, it records them in a file called CheckSUR.log, which is located in your Windows folder, under Logs\CBS\. On a default installation of Windows this will be C:\Windows\Logs\CBS.

comment Can't access YouTrack, unless using Firefox
While Fiddler is running can you try accessing it with FF/IE and watching what happens? Also in IE are you trying http://whatever:82 i.e. including the protocol (https if necessary). From past experience IE doesn't try to guess protocols if you give it a non-standard port.

comment Can't access YouTrack, unless using Firefox
AFAIK IE/Chrome will try to automatically configure proxy settings in a way that might not be the same as FF (the former will use Windows' network stack more than FF will). In the past I've found Fiddler to be a good tool for discovering "surprise" proxy settings. Tools => Fiddler Options => Gateway => Show Current Gateway Info.

comment Resetting “HDD Warning???” with Zalman ZM-VE400 external case
The case contains a SSD drive and as far as I understand the warning relates to the S.M.A.R.T. status of which this drive doesn't support all parts. The parts of SMART that it does support ... the drive isn't about to die, is it?

comment bypass PAE, NX, and SSE2 upgrade requirements from windows 8 to windows 8.1
IMO 8.1 should have been released in the form of a service pack not an entirely new windows. There was nothing stopping them from calling it Windows 8 Service Pack 1 and including these extra requirements.
