comment How to delete directories with path/names too long for normal delete
Windows 10 x64 didn't work for me. I will try this elsewhere, since I have 7Zip everywhere.

+1 internet point for you. NPM nested dependencies all the way down to hell for me as well.

comment Did I just get hacked?
I would say #1) "Use a public Key". #2 "Use a Password? refer to #1"... #3) "Use something that doesn't allow? Keep away from open internet by any means possible" #4) "Can't keep it away? Keep it away from your internal network by any means possible"

This was my first thought. Zip-File Header Information

comment How to move a partition to the end in gparted?
Expand, move inner crap, collapse, expand first crap - didn't think to try that. Amazingly simple.

comment Hacker put password on PC, need help to get into PC
@PeterM Users won't know what sticky keys are, much less this "trick". That's my point. It'll pop up randomly and I'll bet money that 95% of users won't progress to the point of disabling it - much less booting to Windows Repair Mode and co-opting it for admin console. How often do users accidentally hit it? Outside of gamers that spam the wrong button at the wrong time? It's why this trick will still be useful for a majority of cases. Also, I think... I might be wrong... but you can enable this feature without administrator permission as well.

@PeterM While I agree with that (Amoungst other security related stuff), the vast majority of users wouldn't know sticky keys from the cup holder on their computer. I'd bet money that Uncle, Grandpa, mom, friend, etc haven't done ANYTHING to secure their PC. I'll even give you good odds...

@DavidPostill Didn't think it was... I can't win everyone over, but just trying to see if something I posted was wrong (minor minutia and verbiage aside).

I'm fairly certain most of my posts (here and elsewhere) have the same basic layout. My opinion, link and quotes (not necessarily in that order). Always a challenge to stay within the "guidelines" of a million different websites :) Interested to know why I was down-voted, since this is a perfectly valid "solution" to resetting a windows password with nothing but a Windows DVD.
