comment Why can't I install/uninstall software despite being logged in as an Administrator?
This answer is completely incorrect. Every administrative account has full admin privileges. There is no need whatever for the builtin Administrator account. The question asker (and others) need to learn about Vista's User Account Control and its Admin Approval Mode.

comment How do I firewall a machine against the local (wireless) network while still allowing the machine to route internet traffic?
Please explain what you mean by "isolated". The whole point of a network, and the internet, is to establish a potential connection with every computer on the planet.

comment What is the bottleneck for the my browser?
What is your definition of "lag"? What is it that's lagging? What else is going on in your computer? Why can the lag not be ascribed to normal network/server response time?

comment Using the dd command on external hard drive with partitions
The first partition on your disk dev/sdb is dev/sdb1. Writing to dev/sdb will start at sector 0 of the disk, which is not in any of the partitions. The command dd knows nothing about partition boundaries.

comment Only three primary partitions?
Never heard of a Disk Management limit to 3 primaries. Fact is, Disk Management on my Vista install is showing my Disk0 as having 6 (six!) primary partitions. Guess that's why D.M. has an iffy reputation.

comment Is Windows Firewall / Antivirus good?
There is no need to wonder if the Windows Firewall is doing its job: all you have to do is enable logging to see exactly what's being dropped.

comment Unable to format disk: 'The system cannot find the file specified'
The excerpt you posted does not show the error message you quote, and just shows DISKPART telling you, rightly, that you need to select a volume before you can format it. What's up?
