comment How to prevent Firefox from redirecting to OpenDNS's “website-unavailable.com”?
Why are you using OpenDNS at all? I stopped using OpenDNS for this exact reason, they're giving back bogus answers in various situations. I started using Google's public DNS servers, the famous 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and never looked back.

comment Where does Internet Explorer store the last used upload directory?
I tried reopening IE after uploading a file, and open dialog starts browsing form the desktop. It may be that this information is actually only stored in RAM and not saved between sessions. If it was always "just there" you might want to look in the desktop folder. Also, it might help to add which version of Windows and IE was used. (I tested on Windows 7 using IE11.)

comment Virtual Box VT-x
Check around in different sections of the BIOS. On one computer I've, one of the settings was in the CPU features section and another one in the security section or some such.

comment What vulnerabilities have previous versions of windows (before xp) face after they went out of support?
You may have more luck asking for this in the information security SE but the question may be considered weak there. In short, Windows 9x is full of holes, don't believe anything else. But what's more relevant is that Windows 9x died off much more quickly than XP. 98 and XP are 4 years apart and while XP is still alive (>10% of the internet population according to some sources) Windows 98 was statistically insignificant already 5 years ago, and steadily declining long before that. It's not worth it for malware developers to target such a small population.

comment How to establish Peer to Peer communication without port forwarding?
Have you checked if UPnP works? UPnP is a protocol for port forwarding, and if you're lucky, it works even if the ISP doesn't tell you about it.

comment Reduce voltage on psu from 52v to 12v
This question may be off-topic for SuperUser. And anyway, you're more likely to get good answers if you ask it in the Electronics SE.

comment How to list hardware in DOS?
DOS in itself is not aware of PCI as such. You may be able to do it with some 3rd party DOS utility. You might also look into booting Linux. What is currently stopping you from booting Linux? What kind of access do you currently have to the machine? (Such as ability to copy files to the HDD.)
