comment What steps should I take if a new computer got remotely compromised and I am not local to repair?
The standard windows 8 installation comes with a recovery partition - it's part of the specs for delivering it to the customer. You should try to get your friend to follow the instructions on this answer. The last few HP systems I used all had recovery partitions that worked in this manner.

Yes, I'll add a little bit of applescript that can accomplish something similar

comment Prevent auto mounting Android sdcard under Linux Mint
I think it's gnome-volume-manager that needs to be killed/stopped to prevent the auto mounting.

@CountMurphy When badly written services try to show dialogs, you get this message (it's a Vista and newer feature for security).

comment Libpcap Dropping Packets With Newer Intel NIC
InterruptThrottleRate=0,0,0,0 is the tunable to use (based on intel.com/support/network/adapter/pro100/sb/CS-032498.htm). Does tcpdump miss the packets? Have you checked interrupt allocation for the i350 driver?

comment Libpcap Dropping Packets With Newer Intel NIC
There's a bunch of interrupt coalescing code for the intel nic which can cause this problem as you're not being fed the packets in small enough chunks to process. Try setting the InterruptThrottleRate, RXIntDelay and RXAbsIntDelay (they're per port settings)

comment How can I extract a password-protected file a zip archive?
If it's old-style zip encryption there are several tools available to break the encryption, but if it's new-style (AES), then you're pretty much SOL without the password

comment How can I extract a password-protected file a zip archive?
Password protection operates on a file-level in a .zip archive, so each file can be protected or not by choice. zipinfo will show password protected files by displaying a capital letter in the file type e.g. B for encrypted binary files.

comment Cannot mount USB after unsafe eject
it sounds like the partition that was created is a cdrom-style file system. I've added an answer for reinitializing the device so that it can be used again

comment Disable XP SP2+’s FQP Requirement?
No, there is no way to turn off this security fix. Seriously, if you have apps that didn't use fully qualified paths for their explorer verbs then they deserve to be broken by this change.
