comment Loop Counter not working
-1 you should troubleshoot this and try to figure out what BATCH FILE ISSUE it is. You should eventually break it down to a simple problem. Trying to demonstrate an issue of a loop counter not working does not require a reference to 'Encoded.mkv'

comment Windows 7's PATH and environment variables are corrupted
this was probably more worthwhile as a comment than an answer. That rather than restart he should end task explorer.exe and restart explorer.exe. Your answer addresses part of his problem - this part "I can't even open the System Properties dialog where I can see environment variables (because it uses shell variables to start it and it doesn't work). In short, I reboot every time." But notice that since he has a path problem after a restart, this wouldn't fix his problem anymore than he has by restarting.

comment sed, insert file before last line
I don't quite understand the mechanics of //N. But if you want to prepend text before the last line, why not just append it to the line before last? So, skip the //N then it will always append. Now you want text from file f1 before the last line $ echo -e 'one\ntwo\nthree\nfour' | sed -e '/three/r ./f1'

comment Can a people DDOS a block Port?
Looking from an algorithmic perspective, it looks like there has to be some processing. e.g. process the incoming packet, what port is it on(what value does it have in the TCP DST PORT field), if that value is on a closed port, don't let it in. If it's part of an existing connection, let it in. If it's a new connection, on a port that is open, pass to the firewall and if it matches, port forward it. i.e. even if it's a packet whose TCP DEST FIELD is a closed port, there is still processing - checking that field.

@Tim you probably know, but anyhow, from wikipedia "towards the end of 2011, mintty became Cygwin's default terminal"

comment append to txt windows
This link has the path strTextFile = "C:\home\todo.txt" it's not clear what you want to change there. Just change it

comment append to txt windows
You might want the vbs file to take 2 parameters one being the filename, the other being the line to append. The person at that link wanted just one parameter, and so multiple scripts so called with different names, each taking one parameter. He also wrote one with two parameters.

comment append to txt windows
haven't used launchy much as it seemed to miss out indexing things I needed when I tried it. But you should know echo linetoappend >>c:\blah\file.txt is a command you can run from cmd(start...run..cmd<ENTER>)that appends a line to a file.

comment Cannot access any torrents after reinstalling Windows
Maybe your IP changed and so any port forwarding you had set up on your router isn't working. So have another look at the port forwarding on your router

comment Can a people DDOS a block Port?
might his router be extra busy receiving a bombardment of packets on the albeit closed port? and perhaps his internet bandwidth?

@Ramhound What you wrote "You don't have the version that supports doing what you want" <-- You wrote that. It was easily interpreted to have suggested that there was a version that supports what he wants
