comment How to disable the Start menu hot corner (bottom-left) in Windows 8
I also came across support.myaxispoint.com/knowledgebase/articles/… and tried creating a DisabledEdges registry entry set to 15 (0f), but no luck there either.

@Iraedei - I came across instantfundas.com/2012/08/… and tried adding a DisableBLCorner registry entry, but no luck.

I don't see anything in there about the hot corners. My issue personally is that I sometimes use applications that expect the full extent of the screen to be usable and clickable, which makes those hot corners very annoying. :)

Best workaround if you have other Chrome windows open: superuser.com/questions/423272/…

comment Disable the “You've gone full screen” notification in Chrome
Caveat: this only seems to work if you don't already have a Chrome window open... and once you open one window in kiosk mode, any new windows you open will also go to kiosk mode, even if you open them as a different Chrome user.

So then show it, but have a "don't show this again" button or a setting to disable it. Once you know what you're doing, it's odiously bad UX.

comment Attempting to find where my internet data is being used. Does this seem right?
Does NetWorx record the specific URLs that are associated with this bandwidth? If not, try monitoring it with Fiddler (fiddler2.com/fiddler2) -- knowing what request retrieves that MB will probably help figure out what's doing it.

comment Reputable Access Password Recovery
Edited. I've seen many, many legitimate business IT scenarios where the data's rightful owner is unable to access it (no pun intended), ranging from inexperienced/apathetic developers leaving behind obscure projects with no documentation, to incompetent employees locking data away as insurance in case they get fired.
