comment Windows 7 - What is “Date Created” file property referring to?
Most of your image links are non-op. I suppose that by "overwriting" files, you mean changing the contents, even perhaps all of the contents. But that is not "creating" a new file. It is just changing the contents of an existing file, and therefore the Date Created attribute should not change. I have no idea what you mean by "GUID constraint", perhaps you should reword that.

comment Display looks fuzzy / broken on my desktop running Windows 7 with an MSI GeForce 960 GPU
You're going to have to be much more explicit about your "problem". Nothing at all seems amiss to me in the images you posted.

comment Permission necessary for Windows to work correctly
What is "necessary" and what is "normal" are matters of OPINION. So you contradict yourself.

comment If I format my drive will I lose all traces of the file completely?
RAW is not a disk format: as used by Windows, it just means the partition has not been formatted to a filesystem type that Windows supports. It could possibly have a perfectly good ext* filesystem, created by the Linux installer. If such is the case, at least some of the old data may be overwritten and will therefore be unrecoverable. File recovery software that depends on an existant filesystem is pretty lame.

comment Linux mint 10 seems to corrupt ntfs filesystem
Nothing stated in the question supports the contention that the Linux software is causing/has caused data corruption in the NTFS filesystem. Such speculations are usually brought about by user error in failing to properly dismount the filesystem in Windows before switching to Linux.

comment Manually replacing corrupt Windows file
I could find no mention whatever of "dllcache" in the MS article you link to; it only suggests obtaining a copy of the corrupt file from another Windows installation. I hardly think there would be a spare copy on your computer without the System File Checker knowing about it or being able to use it.

comment Why do these characters appear when JavaScript is Disabled?
Firefox has a preference "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled" which will preclude the use of webfonts if set to False. I believe NoScript has an option to toggle that pref, and of course any user can do likewise.

comment fdisk - do i need it or can i make a filesystem directly?
There is no information in the standard partition table that is not, or could easily made to be, already in the volume boot record of the file system. Any reliance of software on a MBR/partition table to properly recognise and/or boot from a file system is entirely artificial.

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.

@DragonLord: Questions "asking for code" are legion here, and are most often answered without comment. Not saying that's how it should be.

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.

comment Broken laser printer prints full bleed, fixed printer has margins, why?
Who says the printer can not have 0 margins? It depends on driver, which could obviously be different than what it is.
