comment Removed log folder and now my PHP script will not run
You'll need to provide a lot more information if you want anybody to help you. In general, removal of /var/log can be problematic as there are files and even sub-directories where applications and systems programs write log information. Without this area they get cranky.

comment How do I prevent users from deleting a folder, while still giving them modify permissions to its contents… Doesn't work?
I think that you answered your own question....appropriate permissions changes will do as you want (until they are changed again).

comment File copying not was not sucessful while updating the Intel Management Engine Interface Driver for windows 7
Have you rebooted to get a clean system, and then try. Another thing that I might try reboot, uninstall the old, reboot then try to install again.

BTW, if you are in the Administrators group, there is NO way to prevent this from happening. An administrator can take ownership and reset permissions.

comment Where did this Windows Vista System Rescue CD come from?
What is the specific issue here? It could be an OEM recovery disk.

comment Trying to connect 2 Dell 2015H monitors one with VGA and one with VGA to DVI connector on my ThinkPad pro dock
Are you absolutely sure that the Thinkpad supports two different monitors? Last time I used a Thinkpad w/ dock it would support only one monitor and the laptop screen...NOT two different external monitors. The plugs you may be seeing might be to handle a single monitor with EITHER a DVI or VGA connector.

If you have an SSD, why not disable the superfetch and prefetch? This is easily done.

comment How to determine a .tib extension from acronis image file type
NOTE: A serious issue in using any backup application is whether the company (and underlying format) will be retrieval in the time frame you need it. I have personally been disappointed in this respect.
