comment Can Intel's VT-x be virtualized?
It isn't clear what you are asking. VT-x is the technology that allows virtualisation, it has no value in a guest, only the host.

comment Obtain IP address logging data from firmware? other non-hdd memory?
@duDE Presumably the hard disk was removed by a person wanting to conceal their activities, or the OP has removed it to conceal theirs.

comment Very high latency caused by router?
How is the router connected to the cable modem? Via LAN ports or WAN port? If the former, have you disabled DHCP on one or the other?

comment Very high latency caused by router?
What if you plug wired into the wifi router? Can you isolate whether it is the router itself, or the wifi connection to the router?

comment Can an artifacting video card be useful in any way?
Then why do you need to "salvage the card in any way possible"? Donate it to an e-salvage charity.

comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
@goldilocks Obviously "after a while" is vague, but intends to mean "after such duration that Windows and apps have had cause to load enough data that would exceed 4GB". My usage is fairly routine and exceeds this routinely. The point being that if this limit is being hit, it may be addressing constraint rather than lack of need for more cache.

I think what the gui represents to a user and the actual situation can be different. RAM that is used for cache is used regardless of whether a userland tool hides that fact to the user.

comment Is there a way of getting the clean layout of 'full screen reading' but without taking up the full screen?
Do you mean Read Mode? If so, that works both when the window is sized, and when maximised.

comment How to find the HTTP Proxy port of your IP on windows 8
Do you mean that you are already going through a proxy and you want to know the IP and port? Or you are not going through a proxy but you want to, but don't know what the IP and port is?

Hi Simon - how is 91.121.x.x routed? Does it get routed on the internet to 188.165.X.254?

@Simon I do - please ask this in a separate question and tag me in a comment here. It is different enough to need a different approach
