comment monitor shifts between darker and lighter black periodically
good suggestion, but it looks like that service isn't currently running, and it's still happening. I went ahead and disabled though, we'll see if that makes a difference.

comment Internet Explorer 9 closes immediately on startup
this is the accepted answer but it doesn't look like the problem was ever solved... I'm definitely experiencing this exact same issue, I've tried all the things Urby lists - basically everything short of reinstalling windows.

comment usb audio interface 'disappears' on windows 7 wakeup
changing power settings sounds promising. the problem is intermittent, so it's tough to tell what effect that has - I'll keep an eye on it now.

comment Apache 2.4 on Windows responds slowly, hangs when serving some dynamic pages
I've been having issues with IE10 causing Apache2.4 (no comodo involved) to hang until the service is restarted - and changing the .conf to include these fixed it. Thanks for posting this.

comment Remove automatic Aero disabling in Windows 7
could be. it started pretty soon after slotting in a new video card. but I haven't even noticed it happening during anything that seems like it should be gpu-intensive - it's usually while I'm just browsing or something. I was kind of wondering if it had to do with my display setup - I've got two running off the primary card, plus another off the onboard setup as a secondary card.

comment Remove automatic Aero disabling in Windows 7
I wish there was an answer to this, windows 7 occasionally just decides that aero is too much for my ridiculously beefy system to handle, and switches me out without asking. it's fairly bullshit. I'd love to know how to disable that 'feature,' because it's obviously not functioning as intended in this case.

comment Win 7 box fried during raid resync - how screwed am I?
So I grabbed both discs out of the machine, put them in external enclosures, and tried them on another box - the one disc is definitely toast, but the other that windows can see but not access revealed its secrets to GetDataBack - looks like I can recover most if not all of my data using that. My fairly limited knowledge suggests to me that there might've been some sort of file system corruption thing going on, data got mis-written when it stopped in mid-sync or whatever, and the data is still there, not overwritten, just not anywhere Windows expects it to be. So perhaps all is not lost.
