comment Stop programs from starting up automatically on boot on Windows
@JohnSonderson - I looked & it appears that Soluto no longer offers their PC products. I stopped using it when I upgraded to a new machine about a year ago with a new OS.

comment Stop programs from starting up automatically on boot on Windows
P.S. For windows 8.1, Task Manager now has a tab for managing startup items.

comment Stop programs from starting up automatically on boot on Windows
@JohnSonderson - For example, if it's in the Startup program group, you can remove it from there. Many programs (e.g., Skype) have an option to "Automatically start when Windows starts" - you can deselect that option.

comment Keyboard is not working, can't type the letter s
What happens when you type "S" - nothing? Or some other letter appears? Have you tried doing a Repair to your Windows installation? Try the following - press the alt-key and then type 0 1 1 5 on your numeric keypad and then release the alt-key - "s" should appear - does it?

I checked and this answer is correct. FYI, when I opened the files (in notepad++) I discovered that each line appears twice - I do not know why. The last line in my case with the checksum, looks like this: checksum_v1 = d9d0767ba5ff29b6c0f1862e88a0d646

comment MS Word changing my fonts when pressing enter or commas
What happens if you select the transformed paragraph & press control-spacebar? Have you tried using Word's "reveal formatting" option?

comment Memory speed discrepancy between spec, BIOS and diagnostics
Reply from component chip manufacturer - those are 1600MHz Chips. Reply from Kingston - " We do use chips from different manufactures. Our memory modules are then tested for different speeds and we test a fast range of systems to recommend compatible memory modules." Bottom line: looks like 1600MHz chips overclocked to work at 1866MHz. Still waiting for definitive answer from Dell.

comment SUBST referring path without drive letter
@Adeem - OK - let's see if I understand correctly: you want to give a virtual drive letter to a path on your computer and you don't want the "ordinary" path to be visible on the computer - correct? Do you require the regular drive letter to be "invisible" or to be completely inaccessible? In other words, is it sufficient that the drive not be visible (e.g., when looking at "My Computer" it doesn't appear)? If so, the simple solution is to use SUBST as you describe ("SUBST T: D:\test") and then run a tool like the one I mention to Hide "D:". (I'll update my answer to remove the network stuff.)
