comment Using qBittorrent is there a way to skip downloading junk files?
This seems to be a known and longstanding bug. Those setting randomly work sometimes, like every other time (not for some people and not for others).

comment Available memory differs by several GiB from what is installed
Note: those limits are likely shared with the graphics card. So if your graphics card(s) had a significant amount of on-card ram, you could still encounter problems with home Premium and 12 GB of motherboard ram.

Ya, they are listing google toolbar as a driver... That is why I decided install all was not going to work very well.

comment Does Windows 8 Allow More Symbols for Filenames?
I really wish we had ":", as it is so often used in titles. One thing you could look into is file explorer \ library programs. Some of them Likely have the ability you seek.

comment Can a 7 days full 100% CPU load “burn-in” / “stress test” damage a modern notebook?
For point one, I think you are being overly optimistic on the quality of heat management some of these super cheap laptops come with. In my experience the parts that fail first, and never work all that well to begin with, are the heat management devices in this $100 notepads. I have had a graphics card overheat and fry an entire motherboard, while never slowing down enough or shutting down.

Absolutely. But in my experience when dealing with cheap notepads it is more on the order of hours, not days (in a normal warm room sitting in a normal non-idea location). But it all depends on the temperature of the room and what it is sitting on. I would never run a laptop/notepad overnight without placing it on a hard solid basement floor, really helps with the overheating to have a gigantic cool heat-sink up against the device.
