comment In Windows' Run command line, how to open “My computer”?
This is the best way to do it. Because it allows you to create a desktop shortcut to "My Computer" on Windows 10.

comment Prevent device from being ejected (Windows 10 Pro)
The problem is that this Controls SATA ports (even "virtual" SATA ports created by USB flash memory), so yes, it only works for disk devices.

comment Windows 8.1 already activated but PC Settings asks for activation
Check the file c:\windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log, check which files are missing, and then fetch them from a good source. (you can for example download Windows 8.1 iso from Microsofts website, extract the ISO and find the missing files). Replace the files in their original location with the known good files. Then rerun sfc /scannow to "rearm" the protection. To open CBS.log, you might need to get to properties, take ownership of file, and then give yourself read rights.

comment Windows 8.1 already activated but PC Settings asks for activation
it wont help if the computer has come into a "undefined" state where it Thinks its both activated and not activated. This happens sometimes and the only way out is to completely deactivate the computer (so any lingering activation files are deleted) and then reactivate computer.

comment Setting up router plus WiFi access point (same SSID) - roaming problems
yes both are true. The signal must basically completely disappear Before the computer will try to connect to a Another network. You could try reducing the transmit Power of the router and/or AP to lets say 90% to make sure the signal completely disappears for it to connect to the stronger device. You would have to experment around a bit to get good settings that work in a "roaming" fashion without losing the Connection in-between.

comment Does Open System Authentication uses random WEP keys?
The reason was that the encryption and authentication was different steps. The idea was that the router would Always encrypt/decrypt with same WEP key, but authentication could be done with WEP key, via username/password, via smart card, and so on. That was the intent of specifying a authentication method (no authentication/shared key authentication) separate from encryption (no encryption/wep encryption). However, WEP was depreciated quickly, and that was why no more auth methods was developed for WEP.

They might mean the authentication process only then. They seem to indicate it gives all users access. But you can read more here why Open is safer than shared key, if you absolutely MUST use wep: tomshardware.co.uk/forum/…

comment Does Open System Authentication uses random WEP keys?
Yes. Provided that you specify a key, it should require a key. But you absolutely need to make sure it works (denying unauthorized clients any communication) by TESTING. Some routers do say "Open system" when they really mean "No encryption", and they might display the key fields but ignore any input to them. Only way to find out is to TEST! And also, its better to use WPA/WPA2 instead of wep, they are much more safer than wep without authentication

You're confusing the setting "WEP/Open System" with the settting "No Encryption at all".

comment How I do to increase System PTE's on Windows 7 and have them extend over page file?
I would rather have a slow system, than the system completely stalls because PTE runs out. PTE runs out because of ewf, all Changes made to disk are stored in system PTE's in RAM, so a great thing would be to have it extend over the pagefile. About 32bit/64bit its 64 bit system. I tought you understand that because i have 16 GB system ram installed.
