comment Cannot open SQL files in VS2010 on Win7 x64
Does VS2010 hand forever or does it eventually start responding? What does the screen look like when it's hanging (most likely the "not responding" white screen)? What plugins have you installed into VS2010? Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing VS2010?

I think you need to provide more information for people to be able to help?

Was this previously working and is now not working or have you never been able to open SQL files in VS2010?

comment Can't boot linux besides Ubuntu
What error(s) were you getting when trying to boot the other distributions or how did you know they weren't working? What happened when you turned secure boot off, "nothing worked" isn't very descriptive?

comment Multibootable USB with windows, linux and iso
USB sticks are cheap so the simplest option would be to have one per individual operating system, or is that just being defeatist? 8-)

comment Performance issue with my system
Try using the Process Explorer tool from SysInternals (via Microsoft) as this gives much more information about running processes: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

comment Will installing Windows 8.1 RTM install a beta version of IE 11?
I don't know but I would be very surprised if they were to release 8.1 (which is supposed to be fixing shortcomings in 8) and have it introduce unfinished software raising more complaints. My two cents.

comment How to set up Firefox to absolutely never to delete any history items?
I can see why you would want to do this but I suspect you'll be running the risk that Firefox will clear out your history at some point, I can't see that the history list could just keep accumulating forever without impacting system performance. Personally I'd consider some external database of visited pages, but that is just me. Good luck!

Why do you want to do this? (keep all history items ever, that is)

comment Windows 8 upgrade to windows 8.1 RTM fails with error code 0x101 - 0x2000C
Is there an error message displayed when it blue screens and what is it doing just before it blue screens (if it actually tells you what it is doing at that point)?
