comment Ransomware attack
You can try to do virus scan using ClamAV which should be available on linux distro. Your best bet is to save all your files and data and wipe the HDD to be somewhat sure that the virus are all gone.

comment NFC passive chip power consumption
Sorry I can't say for sure. Although if I have to make an educated guess, any CHIP will need some power of some sort for it to even work and for the chip to emulate anything. Something along the line of trying to make NFC works with one phone powered on, and one phone powered off - it doesn't work. NFC Tag is designed to be used without power. You may be better off getting Chip for Reading/Writing, and then a few tags to test. You may get better responses from other stackexchange sites (maybe electronics.stackexchange.com)

comment NFC passive chip power consumption
Apologies. I was assuming (before I gone and read more about what you wanted to get) that you were getting a tag. Trust the datasheet. That chip will need power (even minimum amount) to do emulation and run even in a powered down mode. NFC Tag does not require any power.

comment NFC passive chip power consumption
I'm just doing a bit more reading (on the NXP PN532 and want to confirm one thing: You wanted to use one of the chip as a Reader/Writer, and the other chip in Emulation Mode? (to emulate an NFC tag) is that correct?

comment NFC passive chip power consumption
The idea of NFC is that the device B in passive mode is as it name said "passive" - doesn't use any battery or power of any kind. The active NFC will come closer, trigger the passive one to activate, and work from there. Hence why you can have a standalone NFC chip on the wall that has no power, yet will work if you move your NFC-capable device (with the active mode).

Wouldn't have a clue. I doubt anyone here knows. If it was a virus, the only one who can confirm it would be the virus maker as they know what they did to make it.

If you have another PC to create USB bootable Windows (or other OS of your choice) - create one, and boot from it and you can re-install whatever OS of your choice. To create bootable Windows USB, you need: Windows ISO file, Windows license number, USB stick (4gb or bigger), and a software to make the USB bootable with the Windows ISO. You can use YUMI or Windows 7 USB DVD Tool

comment Is it possible to delete User & Library folders and just keep My PC folders?
If you register, you can get email notification. If not, you just need to keep checking on the question and waiting for an update.

comment Is it possible to delete User & Library folders and just keep My PC folders?
The folders under "Libraries" are just quick links for easy finding. If you right click on those folder, and choose properties, it will show you where does those folders get their information from. The usual locations (for this example the "Documents" folder under Libraries) are: C:\Users\<username>\Documents, and C:\Users\public\Documents. They are not being duplicated, only presented to you in different way. You can remove those libraries folder, and it shouldn't delete the content. If you delete the files INSIDE the libraries folder, it will delete the actual file.

comment How to make sdcard (really) read only?
Based on the answer here: superuser.com/questions/354473/… - not possible due to how SD card is implemented. Even their specification said "It is the responsibility of the host to protect the card. The position of the write protect switch is unknown to the internal circuitry of the card." So that switch can be ignored as easily by the host as there is no physical disconnect. You may be better off using CD-R (or if you prefer a smaller medium, Mini CD).

comment Increasingly growing vertical lines on my laptop screen (Dell Inspiron 7520 SE)
I don't know. It may just stuck as it is and won't get worse. Not much you can do unless you want to contact dell and ask them. They can fix / replace the monitor but out of warranty they most likely will charge you for it. Try calling them and explain to them anyway and see how you go. Sometimes if it is a defect they may chose to fix even out of warranty. Good luck.

comment How to load an ISO file into RAM and boot MS-DOS from it?
If you're using windows machine to work on this, tried using YUMI? There is an option to Unlisted ISO - GRUB boot from RAM option. About booting the MSDOS ISO, why not simply run the needed commands after it boots? Or can you mount the ISO, edit the file and repack the ISO? And also you may want to consider using FreeDOS
