comment Windows task scheduler won't run file on non-system drive
If svcAccount is in the Administrators group, then just ticking the "Run with highest privileges" checkbox should enable it to access the path via its Administrator membership.

comment How can I wipe a broken hard disk drive before sending it back to the manufacturer for maintenance?
The problem with encrypting your drive is that it's not exactly convenient to have to enter a passphrase every time you boot, especially if the machine is often unattended in a secure enough building. As of today there are no HDD encryption programs which don't require a password, unfortunately, as the only use case for that is basically this: secure warranty returns.

The simplest fix by far. Hope there are no side-effects.

comment Windows 7 will not install a root certificate
It's impossible to tell from the second screenshot how to find this setting; it's here: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Public Key Policies.

comment How do I permanently disable javascript strict warnings in Firefox?
devtools.errorconsole.deprecation_warnings doesn't remove all the warnings. In particular, it doesn't remove the one caused by AdBlock.

comment How can I control the audio volume of a Modern-UI application?
Great. Try skyping while using a game. You'd better hope that the game has its own volume control. Simplify as far as you can BUT NO FURTHER, and they certainly went overboard, completely killing the super-awesome feature of adjusting the relative volume of two apps.

Thank you! What an anti-feature. Good thing there's a work-around.
