comment Changed the permissions on /usr/bin
NOTE: For security reasons, chown generally undoes the set-uid and set-gid bits on files and directories. So you'd have to go through and check all of these programs as well! Thus best approach is a either a proper reinstall or a restore from one of your fine backups that were previously taken.

comment How can I unlock a HTG locker folder?
Hmm....I'm not sure your question is appropriate to this group as how do I know that you are not simply trying to hack the locker folder of another users? I'm not sure descriptions to bypass password security is allowed here.

comment How to access a server connected to a University network?
You'll probably should contact the university networking team and get an answer. Having us attempt to crack the university network is not really an appropriate type of question.

comment Windows microphone has some weird distortion over it
Have you gone to the vendor site and update the drivers? Your driver you have might not co-exist well with some of the recent windows updates that have been done. Another cause could be the program being used has a problem.....or finally you could have some type of hardware clash or hardware failure. You are going to have to do some investigation of your own here.

Why? You could simply mount the file if you want to access/copy it.
