comment it opens “open with” prompt whenever scheduled task run
do you have a link to the webpage you used to aid in the construction of those .reg files? or info on how you did it, whether it was a reg file you got from elsewhere and amended? or even what it does. it says fix, but i wasn't aware they were broken

comment hacker sending from hotmail, nothing stops it, not joe jobbing
sounds like a first! could be the password change is emailed to a recovery email address and that needs changing? could be the passwords she is using are obvious or she emailed them to herself or something. Could be there is a god and he's having a laugh with you, that's how odd it is!

comment Cannot adjust screen brightness (Samsung Laptop on Ubuntu)
perhaps you could somehow automate keypresses eg Fn+F2, or automate the move to change the setting. but it might stil be bright for a moment, I haven't tried it. or you could get a vinyl sheet arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1193925 neutral density filter solargraphicshome.com/Neutral_Density_Film.html

comment not sure if click to play is functioning in firefox
the property doesn't say it's per plugin and I don't see settings suggesting it is. i've set the option click to play to true, and it's still showing videos in adobe. so I guess it's not functioning for me for some reason

comment Bad hard disk or bad Operating system?
in addition to those mentioned there's also the chkdsk command. chkdsk /r will check and "repair" and try to recover anything gone bad(shouldn't add too much time to the thing),(though re repair, it's advised not to use a disk with bad sectors or with too many bad sectors). chkdsk without /r or /f probably just does a read only scan. note- best way to recover may be making an image and working on that somehow. but anyhow point is, chkdsk, hasn't been mentioned. is built in native to windows.

besides or as alternative to testing with a usb keyboard you could try VNC or remote desktop(mstsc.exe) or teamviewer.

comment Convert hex dump of file to binary(program) file on Windows?
@Synetech interesting, didn't realise unxutils had xxd, so there's one thing it has that gnuwin32 doesn't! (gnuwin32 is often considered to have superceded it as unxutils has many old versions of programs, and gnuwin32 has so many more programs)

comment Why does copying large files use up all of my available RAM?
@Debra and for each of those things you mention (as if you might have knowledge of how they behave differently with respect to ram), you say nothing about how they behave differently (specifically with respect to ram). information that might actually help people and that'd make a very informative useful comment or answer for many people. (If indeed you're correct about what you suggest, the little that you have suggested, and I have some doubt even on that!)

comment Is there a USB power consumption meter?
worth knowing, but worth noting that the one you suggest is many times more expensive than one or two already mentioned. though your has some longevity in availability,as it's still sold.
