comment Do multi-core CPUs still suffer from diminishing returns in today's world?
I doubt a single core is ever the right choice (just put a really slow formula into Excel...) and I think you're over-simplifying a bit. What about, for example, the Turbo Core (AMD) / Turbo Boost (Intel) feature on newer processors? It allows my hex-core AMD to park half it's cores and run the other half at a faster clock rate - and Intel's version is even more finely grained, I believe - so the processor can re-optimise on the fly for the work required of it. Does that make them a better choice? The issue can only accurately be addressed by real-world measurements and benchmarks.

comment AutoHotKey automatically closes when pressing Win+E under Administrator account
@Jack, FYI you had two separate (unregistered) accounts, which is why you were forced to 'answer' your own question instead of being able to edit/comment. I've merged the two accounts (you should consider registering to avoid this happening again) and injected your answer into the question as an edit so nothing is lost.

revised How can a call a user that is engaged on another call in Skype?
generalise the question just a little bit; asking about the problem (calling another user who is engaged) is better than asking about a potential answer (see: XY problem http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/66377/what-is-the-xy-problem)

comment A switch and router between the printer and PC that want to print but cannot
I've converted your posts below in to real comments for you, but the reason you couldn't do this yourself is because you essentially had a different account each time you visited (which I've now merged together). Either you need to register a full account, or you need to make sure you keep cookies from this site and use the same browser each visit, or you need to use the recovery options provided on the login screen (linked in the header) each time you come back. I'd recommend registering a full account as a the most reliable (you can do so on the login link in the header).

comment How to find my Windows OS is x64 or ia64?
As far as I can see only the Server editions of Windows have an explicit version for the Itanium architecture (aka IA64), with Win7 64-bit just supporting the "usual" x64 instruction set. Are you 100% sure you've installed the 64-bit version of Windows 7? And are you 100% sure your CPU is defintely 64-bit (I've not checked if all Core 2 Duos were). Oh, and does the exe work (I'm assuming so else you'd have serious OS trouble)? If so, I'd be dubious that the software is given a valid reading, check with something else.
