Some basic formatting, grammar, and syntax changes. Toned down the bolding a tad as it made the answer a little difficult to read.

comment Windows 7 warns me when opening my own shortcuts from the toolbar
@Rookie Sounds like the shortcut itself is flagged? You'll then have to right-click the toolbar button and select properties, and then click "Unblock", as it should appear on the shortcut, then. Still unsure why you see this though. It could be a virus, as BowlesCR mentioned. Run a scan to be sure.

@BigChris The PCB is exactly the same as the old one, as it is a warranty replacement from the OEM.

comment Headphones detected by Windows when plugged in but doesn't detect the unplugged event
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the audio device and drivers. It is a Realtek chipset and I am not using Realtek's software because I dislike how it handles multiple audio devices compared with Windows' own "vanilla" drivers. Windows Update is also clean.

I didn't even realize this. I had assumed it would complain unless it contained a valid IP address.

comment How do I use a Keyboard Sustain Pedal as input for my computer?
Technically you could process it w/o additional hardware, but unless someone wrote software to do this, you'd have to write your own code to translate the microphone input into a usable keystroke.
