comment Even having 4 gb of ram my system is very slow
+1 for indicating that "slow" needs to be defined before we can tell what "fast" is. Oh, and back up before doing anything!

I didn't downvote, but my guess would be it's for telling the user to go about deleting things and making other changes without without first figuring out what's wrong.

comment saving excel files to file paths or directories with special characters
Square Brackets are legal filename characters in Windows, it's angled brackets (<>) that aren't legal. I don't know why Excel gets this wrong though, it's really annoying.

comment hardlinks on ntfs with windows
.lnk files are shortcut files -- a shell-level item. Symlinks are an NTFS-level link.

comment IF commands in a batch file

comment background copy large files to a laptop?
If you're running 802.11g, then that's at the ragged edge of working. Any hiccups in bandwidth could cause a stutter. If there's a way to tune the memory used for a playback buffer, it could smooth out playback.

comment Permissionless external drive with NTFS
+1 - "Everyone Full Control" or "Administrators Full Control / Users Modify" is the easiest way around this. Beyond that, it's a matter of making sure something doesn't decide to mess with the ACLs.
