comment What defines the 1s and 0s in the computer?
You should mention self-clocking signals, signals which don't need a separate clock-signal. These are necessary when a separate clock-signal is infeasible (such as telecommunication or physical media).

comment How does Windows know if a program is not responding?
Of course it can know if a program isn't responding. "Not responding" is not the same as "stuck in an infinite loop"

comment How do I recover from “repair pending” error in SFC?
@Ramhound: Yes, I already said that. However, since there are likely others on the Internet with my same issue, who will find this page through Googling like I did, I added extra related information to point them in the right direction (which is an extremely common courtesy on this site). I don't understand how you could possibly take fault with that. Regardless, I've parenthesized it now, so there's no way someone could confuse it as a necessary part of the answer.

@Ramhound: What confusion? The command is found (and my computer is fully updated), it just errors out.

comment How do I recover from “repair pending” error in SFC?
@CharlieRB and Ramhound: huh? Yes, it absolutely does answer the question. The question is "How do you force SFC to run when it gives this error?" I provided the solution I used to force SFC to run when that same thing happened to me. It did not in fact solve my underlying problem, but that is tangential to the question, which is why I only mentioned it at the end (and provided a link to another thread, to help others like me)

comment Computer boots up into 'startup repair' after running disk cleanup
@Ramhound: I've run both Spinrite and chkdsk, neither found any disk issues; and SMART stats in the BIOS report only a small (normal) number of bad sectors, all of which were successfully relocated. The issue is clearly that disk cleanup deleted some critical files, not a failing disk...

comment How many PS3/PS4 controllers can be hooked up to one PC Bluetooth adapter at a time?
I've marked this as correct because it all appears to be correct, but I can't award it the bounty since you never gave any references.
