comment Making a cracked or activated windows uncracked
> The question is widely applicable to a large audience. I highly doubt that. From what I have seen, it looks more like most activation cracks use loaders or patches as opposed to pre-activated, pre-installed keys since they would be pointless because Microsoft can easily and quickly blacklist them (viz “Devil’s Own”). I suspect that, if anything, this pre-activated ISO is a rarity in the bootleg underground. (You really should have just gotten a clean ISO from MS or at least one of the “untouched” ISOs from “the scene”; at least then you could check the hash to be sure it’s not infected.)

comment How to Disable Hovering Selection Block in File Browser?
@iglvzx, that margin is not nearly large enough to be conveniently clickable, certainly not when compared to the space around files in XP.

I know what you mean BGM, it is almost always more annoying than novel. It is particularly frustrating when you have hundreds of photos in a folder in large-thumbnail—mode and you are trying to select multiple files.

comment Photoshop - Round sharp corner edges on shapes
Even with a solid color, it looks blurred instead of rounded. Either way, I take it that it doesn't suffice since he started a bounty.

They didn't say it was solid; text can be gradient, texture, etc.

The CCC should be in Autoruns, just search for ATI in the Explorer tab, then uncheck the two or three entries. Do the same for WinRAR (or just unselect the option inside WinRAR*).

What if it is not a solid color? Besides, the rounded corners look like they are blurred instead of just round, and it does not allow for controlling the radius of the curves (the radius of the blur filter is completely unrelated).

Hmmm, I wonder if that could work. I suppose theoretically, if he uses DAZ's loader to install the key, then click the uninstall button to remove the custom boot-loader, it may work. But then, if that does work, why not just use a legitimate key-changer?

comment Detect hardware damage with software?
Wiki is correct; just because it starts up at all does not mean there are not other problems that are intermittent or not manifest until specific circumstances.

Is the original, failing drive installed/listed?

The drive may be, but how big is the partition? Are you sure you formatted it to NTFS?

Windows 7 will install to volumes that are both NTFS and large enough (I'm not certain about the exact number, but I recall it demands 7-10GB). Is the partition you created and formatted large enough and NTFS?

It may not be a shell-extensions. I added another tool for that case. If that doesn't help, then you may want to give some information on the specific context-menus you are trying to get rid of.
