comment Why is Windows 7 & Win 8 Clipboard mysteriously being cleared?
A quick Google (didn't you?) shows that Excel will clear the clipboard when launched (blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2010/05/10/10009448.aspx) as can other applications. Maybe this is what is happening to you. It might be a pain, but for the next few days why mot look at the clipboard before & after every application launch & see if you can track it down? Or perhaps you can Google for a clipboard monitor program, which will notify you of clipboard changes.

comment Optimum way to back up my ultra-book running on windows 7?
You should probably ask this at softwarerecs.stackexchange.com Maybe a kind moderator will migrate it for you.

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
Before you do anything else - power off the machine and remove the drive. Even when Widows is "doing nothing" it is writing temp files & potentially overwriting your old Linux data. Put the drive into an external housing and try to recover using another PC. Whether it succeeds or not, you have no learned the value of regular backups & will be doing so in future, won't you? ;-)

comment Make a program see the file-system differently on Windows
I know that you asked for a general solution, but if you find that you have to accept a Winamp specific solution then hopefully you can just do a global edit on the log files - or is the data in a database? If so, which?

comment Make a program see the file-system differently on Windows
I don't know of any such, but one possibility might be to sandbox the desired program (Winamp or wherever) and to make the symbolic link in the sandbox (or use a virtual machine, just for the program). That sounds like a bit of effort, so only you can judge if it is worth it to you.

comment Laptop Turning On and Off
"every time the laptop turns itself off, the hard drive makes a click sound!" - remove your hard-drive and connect it externally to another PC. That will let you know if it is a drive problem or not.

comment my laptop is not detecting wifi
Are you using a web interface to change the SDID? (like 192.168.1.100? That will change it for now, but if you don't save it then of course it will revert on restart. Click the save button

comment Can I reuse this RAM in my other laptop?
1 Thanks. So long as you are sure that I can't damage the old laptop (what about that voltage comment from barlop?) then i will just stick it in & see if it gets recognized.

+1 Thanks. How do I check the voltage? Will it be printed on it? (I don't have it with me at the moment)
