    Pre-Built PC's cheaper per-part than individual parts?

    Elevated Privg.

    I can't help with why your edge is being elevated, but I can suggest to make exploits harder.... Are you spawning Edge maybe from games that elevated? This posting is provided "AS IS" with no...

    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    As long as the boxes don't share Creds, that's a good path, it follows the Secure Access Workstation model. But if they share any credentials, you have broken the model. Running with Windows 7 on the internet is a dangerous move, due...

    Linus Torvalds On The Importance Of ECC RAM, Calls Out Intel's "Bad Policies" Over ECC

    If I could get ECC I would, back 22 years ago, when I owned my own computer store, I put ECC memory in everything. (God I'm old) It was more expensive, but man so many fewer support calls. If I could get it, I would just for the peace of mind. The bad part of his argument however; is ECC doesn't...

    How to be sure what disk is ssd during installation Windows 10. Disk 1 or Disk 2?

    Because it's following the boot spec. I haven't owned setup code for over 17 years, so take this with a grain of salt. (I work on the Windows Defender team again, now) The spec says to put all boot details on disk 0 according to the bios spec from way back. Now Bios and UEFI are a lot smarter...

    BSOD in W7 + Event Log + minidump

    That bugcheck says a USB device sent some data that doesn't make sense... I can't get more details since you are on Windows 7.... I am 100% sure you have some hardware issue in your machine. I can't help you more than that, sorry. This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers...

    BSOD in W7 + Event Log + minidump

    That memory dump shows a paging in error of Wininit.exe. This is usually caused by failing Mass Storage devices in the chain. (mobo, hdd, etc) Your event log entry is another driver failing to page in, your video driver. Have you ran a chkdsk recently and see if there are errors? This posting...

    How do i increase Windows limit to remove apps error of "1024 sockets"?

    Handles are not sockets? What are you trying to do in this python code? (Also, is there any event log entries about socket limit hit? There is a simultaneous socket limit due to worms...) This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

    Using Windows 7 Will Get You Hacked?

    The problem with Windows 7 is that it doesn't have the protections of newer windows to make exploiting harder, as well if there is a patch for vuln for supported windows, it's trivial to reverse engineer and try it on Windows 7. Not being direct connect to the internet prevents people coming...

    Can windows 10 be installed on a new chromebook?

    Lol, it would be weird for ex-operating system programmer to not be familiar with those features... So, there are things that cannot be patched during running, even the livepatch documentation calls some out. Hypervisor makes some patching easier below it, but then hotpatching a hypervisor is...
