comment Surround Field setting/plugin for Foobar2000 or Winamp?
@Cornelius doesn't seem to work and I think that is useful only if you actually have 5.1 speakers which I don't have.

comment Taskbar freezes, can't restart explorer.exe
@Jet It freezes occasionally I don't know what causes it, so I end it. BTW I remember Windows XP automatically restarts explorer.exe when I end it so I was expecting the same with Windows 7.

comment RAM only works in specific slot/order
If it wasn't in the supported memory list, is it possible that my "defective" RAM is not defective at all?

comment How to use VLC to stream webcam to server then server to viewers
I had this idea since I can think I can install VLC to the server then open up my PC's stream from there, then, stream that stream to the viewers. I am not sure why you think my PC will be the bottleneck since it theoretically only uploads to the server, while the server serves all the bandwidth to the viewers.

comment How to suppress vibration from computer to speaker?
@techie007 Hmmm, upon googling it appears this is a common issue Logitech z523. I think the problem is with the connector of subwoofer to right tweeter, I tried to tighten it a bit, it seems to alleviate the issue. I will observe more.

comment How to suppress vibration from computer to speaker?
@techie007 It really seems like a grounding issue now because I realized that even if the jack is unplugged from the PC, I can still hear buzzing. How do you usually fix the grounding issue?

comment Allow Secondary Logon (Run As) to a specific exe only
@FrankThomas I tried using /savecred in the shortcut parameter but it doesn't appear to store the credentials after reboot, or is that possible? I am using it in a Guest account BTW.

comment Can ping and trace sites but can't view on browser?
The IP address doesn't load as well. I don't it's OS specific since my PC and phone can't view the same site (we're using the same Wifi/ISP).

comment PC can't recover from “Turn off display after 5 mins”
@ernie I see one Error message "The previous system shutdown at 10:17:31 PM on ‎9/‎19/‎2013 was unexpected." but before that there is no error. I think that error was generated by me hitting the restart button when the system hangged as I described.

more than 15 minutes is unlikely in what I'm doing but if it happens it won't do damage.
