comment Why is HDMI->DVI image sharper than VGA?
To me, the VGA sample is, if anything, slightly sharper than the HDMI sample, so your whole point fails. There is of course a substantial difference in brightness between the samples.

comment My network service (netsvcs) seems to be hogging all my memory
That svchost process consists of numerous system services, many of which have nothing to do with "networking". You could use Process Explorer from Microsoft/Sysinternals to see exactly which ones. Among them is the task scheduler service (which would explain the "every 30 minutes" thing, so you could look thru the list of the scheduled tasks on your system. I don't know why you are getting app crashing and freezes, cuz that svchost sometimes uses over 50% of my physical memory at times, with no such problems observed. Maybe you just have a lot of buggy apps.

comment Computer turns on at 3 AM for the first time in 2 years
"Didn't change any Windows settings": On my Vista machine, that meant Windows would wake from hibernation at 3AM every Sunday to download and install updates. Did it for years, before I changed it.

comment Is there a way to truly delete all deleted files?
Here, "built-in" seems to mean "included with the default Windows install". However, "built-in" has the usual meaning of "a command internal to cmd.exe", at least in the context of CLI utilities.

comment Why google dns give the wrong name server for these adult domains
If that IP address is not in fact valid, you should specifically mention it. In general, there's nothing unusual about two different domain names having the same IP address.

comment “TMGR is Missing” after repair-installing Windows XP
"TMGR IS MISSING" is the remnant of an error message in the Partition Boot Record of a standard Vista/Win7 install, which has been overwritten by the XP install. There is no "TMGR" file.
