comment Windows 7 Drive permissions (alternative to group policy) block access to internal OS Drives from external OS
It is useless to try to do that inside the "internal" OS, simply because when you boot into an OS on an external disk, the "internal" OS is not running. There might be some sort of disk locking/password facilty at the BIOS/disk controller level, if you have the right hardware.

comment keyboard issues with refurbished HP
You might have an incorrect keyboard layout set in the operating system. That's a software problem, and not anything to do with drivers or hardware. See msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/goglobal/…

comment Adblock Plus doesn't block Google ads. How to enable?
This answer amounts to little more than ill-informed slander. Slander is more akin to "criminal" action than anything AdBlock Plus does.

comment Have issue accessing Google Chrome from Windows 8: Explorer cannot then locate DEFAULT folder: any answers, please?
I suggest that anyone who can't find a directory using Windows Explorer is not going to be able to use a command line, or even know what that is.

comment is there any relation between dpi setting and display resolution?
If you have a monitor with 1280x1024 pixels, then any image that fills the screen will be a 1280x1024 image. It is a lie to call a 800x600 image that has been scaled up to 1280x1024 pixels a 800x600 image, no matter how many people repeat the lie.

comment is there any relation between dpi setting and display resolution?
If Windows is ignorant of display size, then it is willful ignorance. The EDID which every display device is supposed to provide has fields for H. and V. physical dimensions of the screen, from which actual DPI is readily derived. Setting Windows DPI to the physical reality will often simply break the displayed image in many ways. Window's treatment of DPI is a linguistic and logical abomination.

comment So I disabled the Application Information service
The AppInfo service is the thing in Windows that handles elevation requests, when UAC is turned on. You'll need to somehow turn UAC off or reenable the service or use the built-in Admin account. Maybe from a WINPE-based rescue cd?
