comment Downloading software without bloatware
Also important to mention that Sourceforge has (and still does?) bundle some open source downloads with the same crapware, that will install toolbars and whatever stuff you probably don't want.

comment Creating symbolic link to new location after moving C:\Windows\Installer to D: partition
Just to add, you no longer have to use junction. In newer versions of Windows you can just use the default tool mklink for this (symbolic links, hard links, and junctions).

@boboes No, it's about launching a batch file once every 5 minutes.

comment How can I get my prompt back after starting Emacs from the command line?
Okay, then emacs behaves differently to what I expected, since I thought it won't return to the calling instance of cmd (which therefore wouldn't exit in time).

Maybe I misunderstood you then. If you open a console window using cmd and then run cmd with whatever parameters, you'll get one instance running inside the other, but you won't return back to your command prompt unless emacs closed. If you'd put your command line into the run dialog, you could just ommit cmd /k and run emacs instead. At least that's my thinking regarding that solution.

That won't work as expected, as you'd still reuse your current shell window. To just run emacs you could also just use the start menu or the run dialog, without the detour through calling cmd.

comment Browser redirects almost all of links to Adfoc.us
@MatthewWalker Sounds similar to some worm/botnet being active right now. Better also check your wordpress installation for new/unknown (admin) accounts.

comment Last Windows 8 update removed Grub
What happens if you use the UEFI shell and try to boot grub? Also did you verify the boot device order is still ok?

comment Browser redirects almost all of links to Adfoc.us
@AmirrezaNasiri Just because others have that problem as well doesn't mean it's nothing on your local PC. It might be some hijacker hiding itself using rootkit technology. Possibly distributed through some local news site that got hijacked or similar.

Also, does the problem happen with other browsers? Internet Explorer for example?

comment Browser redirects almost all of links to Adfoc.us
Could you try to do a DNS lookup on a domain you certainly haven't visited so far? Write down the results, then try visiting that domain. If the redirects happen, you've got a domain for comparison with others. Just some examples you could try: frankfurt.de berlin.de munich.de comodo.com linuxmint.com eff.org

comment Web Server Public ip address to be seen on webpage
@SamirSogay You can't do that client side (read: in pure HTML). You'll have to do it server side using some scripting language, since it has to be run by the server. Otherwise it would return the public IP of the user visiting your page rather than the public IP of the server serving that page.

Arjan: You could post that as a new answer, although that might not necessarily return the correct public IP.

@SamirSogay Oh? Okay, so for what do you need your "public" IP then?

comment Web Server Public ip address to be seen on webpage
Well, you could probably extend the regular expression to catch IPv6 as well. Unfortunately I don't have a public one so can't test it.
