Yes, you are correct. It could be from Windows XP SP2 to Windows XP SP3 (but I only have one datapoint).

comment How to disable the screen orientation hotkeys in Windows (XP)?
Graphics Properties and Graphics Options are not always available (I checked on four computers, with Windows XP 32-bit, Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit, and two with Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. Only one, one of the two with Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit, had these two options). (Are these added by the specific display driver?)

comment External hard drive sounds like it's being scanned constantly
How do you choose a filter/narrowing down? Normally, the output is a very, very long list. How can it be summarised? Is there a statistics function, counting different kinds of accesses from different processes?

comment How do you remove a default program association for file types in Windows 7?
When I tried it, it worked without having to change HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT; it worked by only removing the entry in question from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts. This was in Window 7 Enterprise 64-bit.

comment Change back to 'Windows can't open this file' (Change Windows Default Programs and File Type Associations)
I don't think this solves the problem. The other Super User question, How do you remove a default program association for file types in Windows 7? may be the way to go.

Are there some requirements for this to work? 32-bit vs. 64-bit? Service Pack? Windows edition (home, professional, etc.)? User privileges?

This does not seem to work on Windows 7 (I tried on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit). When the fake EXE file is removed, it reverts to the previous association.

Actually, it says "4 primary partitions, or 3 primary partitions and one extended partition".
