comment Why is the Windows 8 recycle bin using more space than it is allocated?
@pabouk: . . .to 10000 MB for the main user of this computer, and disabled the recycle bin for the other user, and refreshed the folder in WinDirStat, but it still takes 26 GB of space. I see no "delete" here.

comment In Windows 7, is it possible to do “runas” administrator *without* using the GUI?
This isn't a dupe. The OP is asking for how to spawn a process as an admin. The Win32 term is "elevate". Runas simply spawns a process as a different user. Just like Linux, not all processes have "admin" permissions even though your user credentials have admin permissions.

comment Can I allow standard users to install software when Parental Control is enabled?
Step. 1) Create an install program that fires up a command prompt, which will have the same permissions as the installer. Step 2) ... Step 3) Profit.

This will be an interesting answer. This is a new feature and Google will have limited info.

comment How to remove obsolete users from ACLs and other unneeded data from an NTFS drive?
I wouldn't worry about performance. It's a B tree and it's unlikely to improve performance.
