comment Why is it bad to map network drives in Windows?
It's only a few more lines of code to enumerate all local servers and all available shares on them. So just because the current versions don't affect shares, it doesn't mean you are safe, just because you don't map drives.

comment Can I prevent a driver from being installed with windows 8.1?
I doubt this applies to the Windows 8.1 update process. These are settings for the normal operation of the OS. But worth a try.

comment Win7/8: When starting any link as administrator, it ignores the “Start in” setting
I just created a small console program which just prints the current working directory. I does print the directory I specified in 'Start in' regardless whether I started it as normal user or elevated. Do you have other examples where this is a problem? I don't know MatLab, but why would you ever need to run this elevated? If it lets you start other programs, that's another reason not to run it elevated.

comment Installing the Windows 8.1 update on a non-admin account?
@JamesMcMahon - Both 'net...' and the GUI are using the same internal Windows commands. You could use the GUI if you prefer. Command line is usually quicker if you know what you are doing. No there are no long term problems. If you don't want to change your main account, create a new one, make it a member of the administrator group, upgrade and then delete it. It's pretty painless.

comment What's the difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit program in Windows
Good explanation. There is one aspect that needs clarification: 'relatively easy for the OS to run 32-bit programs while in 64-bit mode'. 32-bit program don't run in 64-bit mode and it is not easy to do that. They run in a different Subsystem of the OS, in this case in WOW64 (Windows on Windows 64). In certain versions of Windows you can remove WOW64 and no 32-Bit Windows program will run in such an environment.
