comment Why is dwm.exe using so much memory?
How come no info on the used Theme, visual effects enabled, number of monitors and their resolutions and whether cloned or extended, etc., etc., on the respective computers? They all would seem to be highly relevant.

comment Monitoring the wall time of a process on windows?
"Wall time"? Is that English? You may want to edit the Q. title, or at least lead off with a definition of that phrase.

comment Why does Windows 7 recognize a 4 GB SDHC card only with 3.68 GB? How to format/get 4 GB?

It is not just hard drive mfg's who consider the "G" unit prefix to stand for 10-to-the-9th-power: it is anyone who understands what the metric prefixes mean and have been used to signify since the nineteenth century!

Message from who or what? What does your modem have to do with anything? There should be plenty of info in Device Manager: you have to open the Properties for any device with an exclamation mark and get the vendor and device id numbers, then use those to search for a driver.
