comment Why doesn't Chrome respect the DiskCacheSize policy?
It certainly can't be true that all policies are stored there, because I know for a fact that Chrome respects UserDataDir inside HKCU... are you sure DiskCacheSize isn't valid there either?

comment On Windows 7, dir or tree can't show unicode characters, even starting cmd with cmd /U
@LưuVĩnhPhúc: The question specifically said the console cannot show Unicode characters, not that it cannot copy them... so being able to copy-paste to see it correctly doesn't change anything about my answer. I haven't tried it on Win8 but I'm skeptical it would actually display Unicode properly... have you tried something complex like Chinese?

comment Windows 8.1 high System process CPU usage due to MmTrimAllSystemPagableMemory, why?
+1 thank you for posting this. How did you ask about it if you don't mind me asking -- online on some support page, or did you know an employee?

comment Chainload Windows boot manager from another?
@kreemoweet: what exactly is "contradictory" here? There is no fundamental reason why each boot loader would need a separate database. It may be that that is the current state of affairs, but there is nothing "contradictory" or "bewildering" about it. I can very well imagine an alternative system in which that wouldn't be the case.

comment I'm using Chrome and Chrome Sync; does Google have access to my passwords?
@FrankThomas: I don't get it. You can choose your own passphrase when syncing the data. That means Google doesn't know the passphrase and hence can't decrypt the data... does it not?

comment Disable Narrator shortcut key in windows 8
-1 bad idea. AtBroker.exe starts every time you press the shortcut and keeps on running, sometimes hogging 100% CPU (at least on Win 8.1). Instead, do the same thing for AtBroker.exe.

comment Why doesn't prioritizing processes produce a speed improvement?
It's like real life. If you have a higher priority for getting on an airplane than another passenger that doesn't mean the flight will take less time for you!
