comment Unknown mouse dpi / comparisons
It's interesting that you prefer optical over laser. Any particular reason why?

comment Windows stuck in reboot loop due to existing Scheduled Task
As a point of interest you used to be able to hold Shift on startup to solve this, but it's removed in 7.

comment Force Windows 7 to unload items from memory (not Superfetch)
> "You have probably run out of memory because you have disabled the pagefile". This is misleading but somewhat accurate. Despite you having physical memory left, you may exhaust virtual memory (which should be unlimited) as the OS is no longer able to guarantee a virtual memory page can be committed; your comit limit is reduced. When this is exceeded, virtual memory requests fail and things start to crash. I'm far from an expert on this but want to point out it's more complicated than the above comments are alluding to.

comment Can I connect a 3.5" HDD to a laptop using USB 2.0?
-1 'absolutely no risk'; a fluctuating power level (e.g over-strained USB bus) can directly cause data corruption. (My only source is personal experience - faulty caddy with 12v rail that varied +-0.5v @0.5Hz would render drives unreadable).
