comment How to block access to certain websites without additional programs?
You asked how to block connections by IP address, but evidently that is not what you meant, since you accepted the answer below, which does not pertain. Please edit your question accordingly.

comment “Limited” internet connection on Windows 7 & 8
Are the neighbors aware that you are "sharing" the connection? I find it exceedingly strange that there is no mention at all of asking the neighbors, who presumably own and control the router, about the situation.

comment I need to understand how to 'read" a cookie file. I am not a techie
The description of session cookies above is not accurate for browsers that can save and restore browsing sessions. In that case session cookies can be stored on disk (and reloaded later) because the "session" effectively does not end when the browser is closed.

comment Windows forgets Download folder location in Favorites
Every browser I know of has a setting for its default download folder. It will use that location without regard to what may be on your Explorer Favorites list.

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.

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?
