comment How to tell what is changing a windows environment variable
Not an easy task. If you are in an AD environment, group policy is probably doing it. If not, look at everything that runs at startup. You could also use procmon to monitor registry changes during startup.

There is no way for anything on your end to know if the call is phone or fax until it answers the call.

comment How to figure out what causes random Windows hangs?
Also a good option to catch short lifetime processes. I generally prefer process explorer because there is a better chance of catching resource usage information for the process.

I would suggest using Process Explorer and make the difference highlight time long enough that you can easily see any processes that might be quickly starting and stopping.

comment Is there really a “USB communication protocol”?
Oh...I read the question to be "Is there really a “USB communication protocol”?" So the answer would be yes. If you want to know what the actual communication protocol is, simply read the standard. Or read section 11 on the wiki page that you linked to.

comment Is there really a “USB communication protocol”?
"the driver handles the low-level IO to the underlying device/hardware" it does this using the communication protocol that is in the standard.
