comment Releasing disk space on guest, reduces free space on host
@Vinayak : You can use vmware guest tools to shrink the size of the image. The tool copies every used sector into a new vmware disk image and then deletes the old image. Note that you require nearly double the disk space of the vmware disk image during this process.

comment Hiding non-user accounts in Windows 7
I am sorry but I have to disagree the account will not be "disabled". It just prevents the user account from being displayed in user account lists. In any "runas" command that allows to enter the user name as a string you can use it.

comment How can I backtrack to find out which application created a registry key?
Your main problem is that you are trying to disinfect an infected running system. If you really want to remove a virus from a system boot a clean system (e.g. from boot cd) and use it for virus scanning and removal. Otherwise you will not succeed as a typical virus consists of multiple of executables checking each other and restarting/restoring them.

comment Why Virtual Box won't give me option to create 64 bits guests?
Other software may use and lock the VT-x modes. I had for example some issues with Intel HAXM.

comment How do I monitor the physical location of Wi-Fi clients?
Position detection of mobile devices always requires multiple base stations/hotspots. See GPS for example - you always need connection to multiple satellites.

comment Encryption software that allows for password OR keyfile
@Modus That is the group policy which is not relevant in your case. Anyway you always have multiple types active because there is always the recovery-password which is active anyway what you select in the GUI.

comment Encryption software that allows for password OR keyfile
Bitlocker: AFAIR you can use multiple "locking mechanisms" like password and USB-stick at the same time is an "or" manner meaning you only need one of both. May be you have to use the command-line tools to set-it up this way but it should be possible.

comment Is there a way to make a USB 3.0 flash drive bootable to Windows?
@pratnala Sorry but Apple devices are a completely different "universe", I don't have any experience with those. I try to avoid everything from that company.

comment Where can I find evidence of changes in the amount of RAM installed on a windows machine?
Is it a 64bit or 32bit system? A 64bit system would only make sense in case 4GB were installed.

comment USB Flash Drive is writeable but can't delete files
Then you are on Windows XP or the stick is FAT formatted. The latter case you have to format it and hope that it is not a hardware defect.
