comment Computer keeps restarting
Try going back to just 1GB and see if it still works. If so, move that stick of RAM to a different slot and retry. Do this for each of the RAM slots to determine if it is the slot that has the problem. It is possible that the 3rd stick damaged something, but fortunately, is usually unlikely.

comment Why does restarting/resetting the router work?
Exactly. After all, a router is essentially just a small computer. If rebooting fixes most problems for a computer, then it stands to reason that it would have the same effect for a router (or a modern game console, smartphone, Internet toaster, Japanese toilet, and any other device that has a computer in it).

comment How can I determine if the current version of Windows is either 32-bit or 64-bit from the command line?
@AlixAxel, well they said command-line, so presumably, if anything, Batch.

comment Windows 7 - Open the Volume Control popup from the command prompt
> the window placement seems random It’s not random; new windows open by default one title-bars height to the right and below the previous one up to a point, then reset to the top-left.

comment PC version of Google Chrome doesn't recognize “.local” domain name
Instead of prepending https://, append a /: prosseek.local/. If that doesn’t work, then Chrome just doesn’t support .local URLs. Check if you are using the latest version, and if so, then just give it time (or file a bug-report/feature-request since it does not seem to have come up already).

comment Do I have a virus? What is this green icon?
The green icon looks like some sort of installer. What's probably happening is that you installed a piece of old software that uses an old installer that isn't quite compatible with Windows 7 (or 64-bit if your system is that). So, the installation did not and cannot complete and just hangs there. You will want to disable and remove it with something like Autoruns because you won't be able to use the normal Uninstall function in Add/Remove Programs since the installer does not function correctly.

@sixtyfootersdude, just because it is in that path does not guarantee it is safe. Malware frequently masquerades as legitimate software. Use something like Autoruns to disable it, and MalwareBytes/SuperAntiSpyware to scan it.
