comment How can I restore an OEM hidden disk partition (PQSERVICE) on disk0?
OK, so the data is gone.. I'm asking whether I can re-establish the recovery mechanism by adding logical name PQSERVICE to that partition.

@RandolphWest: It does, however, if possible, I'd rather disable the auto scan and run it manually.

comment Is it possible to remove the fade effect between login?
The executable that controls fade and other display settings is in C:\Windows\System32\SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe You might also want to take a look at login.exe and USER32.exe in the same folder. If you want to learn how to use reshack, I suggest you download it and read the docs.

I have seen others successfully modify String Tables and other resources in 32/64bit Windows executables and dll files. It allows you to view and modify them as decompiled resource scripts, so all the OP has to do is locate the settings file which controls fading and disable it.

comment Why does Windows 7 use the page file when there's free physical RAM?
That's because Windows detects how much total memory the system has and by default assigns xGB for pagefile.sys and xGB for disk caching, but you can fine-tune these and have more free memory if desired. I have a Vista-SP2 laptop with 2GB memory. Its free memory averages 1GB and my disk light rarely blinks.

What a lot of people don't understand is that windows never really has free memory... I don't agree with your statement. If that were the case, Windows would be constantly swapping. Windows does use some memory for disk caching, but on a box with 8GB of memory, you're going to have lots of free memory.
