comment Is it safe to download and burn a disc image on an infected PC?
This answer is full of wishful thinking. There's no basis for claiming "you should be fine". Malware could totally bypass this defense, either by tampering with the file before you marked it as read-only, or by tampering with what is written to the CD, or in any number of other ways. To readers: if you're doing anything security-critical, don't rely on this answer. It's bad practice.

comment Is it safe to download and burn a disc image on an infected PC?
This answer contains personal speculation, with no evidence. Me, I wouldn't rate it as improbable or far-fetched at all. Remember those floppy viruses back in the day? That's exactly what they did, except with floppies instead of CDs. Bottom line: if your machine is infected with malware, you can't know what it might do, but I can tell you one thing: you have no basis for trust in the contents of that CD. Trusting that CD is bad practice, and if you are doing anything security-critical, it's a really bad idea.

comment Grep a destination IP in Netstat results in realtime - windows 7
@barlop, sorry about that. The question was originally on security.stackexchange, and I closed-voted it there as off-topic (meaning it is not suitable on security.stackexchange). It's since been migrated over to SU, triggering your confusion.

comment Thrashing on the WinRT framework?
This sounds like a better question for StackOverflow, because it is a question about a specific software technology, rather than a general computer science question. If you agree, you can click the "flag" button underneath the question and ask the moderator to migrate it (but don't cross-post). Alternatively, if you want to make it on-topic for CS.SE, you'll need to provide all relevant background about WinRT, so that this isn't a question about WinRT but a question about the conditions under which thrashing can/can't occur.
