comment Can software differentiate between a laptop and a desktop?
Which ones are "easter eggs"? All of those look like actual chassis types to me.

comment How to disable DirectWrite in Google Chrome 37?
I calibrated the heck out of ClearType when I set up this machine. But the automatic update to Chrome 37 made everything blurry, ugly, color-fringed, and hard to read. GDI is still the only decent text rendering technology to come out of Redmond.

comment Why does Windows think that my wireless keyboard is a toaster?
The question is about a wireless keyboard. Where does malware come into play? Someone installed malware on his keyboard?

comment MS-DOS “Divide Overflow” error
There is probably a timing loop somewhere in the code, and your new[er] machine is way faster than it ever expected, generating a divide-by-zero error. What application is it? Do you have the source code?

comment Why does Windows think that my wireless keyboard is a toaster?
We just don't think this has anything to do with the question. The question isn't about a thumb drive, it is about a keyboard. Do you think that someone hacked into his wireless keyboard and reprogrammed its device type to "toaster"? Why would they do this for a keyboard? (Also, there has only been one downvote.)

comment Why does Windows think that my wireless keyboard is a toaster?
I cannot think of a single good reason why you would want to go from the simple, readable, trivially-parsable INF format to the ugly, complicated, behemoth that is XML. As a universal exchange format, XML might have its merits. But for a domain-specific configuration file, ugh.

comment Opened a JPG picture with notepad, pasted all the “text” to a new notepad file, changed to .JPG and it no longer opens. Why?
It is a little strange that you show the property sheet for a Notepad executable bundled with a version of Windows XP, yet judging by the window theme, you're clearly running some version of Windows 8. That would explain why the executable was linked with version 7.1 of the toolset—that's what they used to compile Windows XP and associated utilities. The Windows 8 version of Notepad will undoubtedly be compiled with a newer version of the SDK tools.

comment Weird characters (´╗┐) at the start of a batch file
ANSI is not really an encoding. Presumably it refers to your Windows system's default code page. That will vary from one system to another, depending on configuration.

comment How do I install .NET Framework 3.5 on Windows 7?
@teen If the box is checked, why do you think .NET 3.5 is not already installed? I don't remember whether it shows up in the list of installed programs or not. It doesn't make sense that it would, considering it shows up as a Windows feature...
