This answer appears to have nothing to do with the question!

comment is there a way to sort files in a directory by view count? Win 7
The great majority of column headings one can add in Explorer have no data associated with them. One needs to have an appropriate shell extension installed, and presumably also some program which collects and maintains the relevant data.

comment How do you change the hover text on a pinned taskbar item in Windows 7?
Just a note that in Windows Vista, the shortcut hovertext (name and Comments property) can simply be edited from the context menu Properties dialog. No Explorer restart required, no delving into obscure AppData folders, etc.

Both IE and Firefox have settings to ignore webpage-specified fonts. Have you checked those?

comment Multiple Boot Manager
"Better" in what way? Both GRUB and Windows Boot Manager (and their derivatives) can boot from any partition, show a boot menu, etc. What features do you find lacking?

The TEMP and TMP environment variables point to the current user's temp file directory only.

comment Emptying Windows temp folder is a good idea?
Disk Cleanup does not touch the Windows Temp folder on my machine (Windows Vista), no matter what the settings.

comment I cannot go to google.com and other websites due to invalid certificate; possible DNS issue?
Since the error messages you are receiving are telling you there's a problem with the website certificates, does it not seem obvious to look at the certificates to try and find out what the problem is? Certificates have nothing to do with DNS.

comment 'msg' command on Windows 7
Of course you would also get the message. Are you saying that when you switch users there is no message box? Are you running the command prompt as an administrator? Maybe the forum post here will help: neowin.net/forum/topic/880618-using-msgexe.

comment Chainload Windows boot manager from another?
@Mehrdad: this is a bewildering and contradictory specification. Each bootloader needs entries for each OS it boots and each chainloaded boot application (typically another bootloader). There will necessarily be N entries in each of N bootloaders if each can chainload the others.

comment 128 MByte vs. 128 GByte
The GiB, MiB, KiB notation is used widely in the software that comprises my Linux installations. Your "used nowhere" claim needs to be amended.

comment NTFS File shows as directory
" ... showing up in Windows as folders/directories ... " is rather vague. Have you tried using the Dir command in the Command Prompt? Windows Explorer is rather prone to inexact representation of actual disk contents, and if there are third-party shell extensions involved, almost anything goes.

comment Restore hard disk signature
Take the four bytes (pairs of hexadecimal digits) found at offset 0x38 in the registry binary data, as described in that article, and reverse the order of the bytes (i.e. last byte first, etc). Use the resulting string of 8 hexadecimal digits as the disk signature you restore using DISKPART at the command prompt.

comment Importing Bookmarks from a Text File (to any browser/website)
Using the existing Titles of webpages may not be a very good choice as the bookmark names, as they are frequently ridiculously long, and amount to advertising blurbs.
