However we are talking about ransomware and I fear ransomware can't be stopped by limited privileges. Encrypting data is not a system operation, so I think ransomware are allowed to do it even if privileges are low.
I think limited privileges are useful against other kinds of malware only.

Another good tip - do NOT run as an administrator.  Set up another Admin account and delete privileges from your account.
Then, when you get a UAC popup, you will have to enter the admin PW rather than just hitting enter.

Yes, but it may be boring. I instead prefer to be administrator and then I start critical programs (like the browser) with limited privileges, for example by DropMyRights.
Convenience and safety at the same time.

An Arabic cover of "Whole lotta love" (Led Zeppelin). Note the fascinating singer:

Mine was an observation only. No sarcasm behind it. Continue serenely your discussion.

Reading your messages I get perplexed. You talk about things that already exist for many years.

an application places a special file or fake network connection that looks (to a ransomware program) like something it would want to access and modify...
How to implement?

Is it perhaps called virtualization?

With regard to the last comments: what you ask is just what any antivirus should do...

A personal additional note.
There are not ransomware only: I also fear the theft of my computer and its peripherals. This is why I do backups even in USB keys and then I wear them when I leave my house. I feel me rather safe from ransomware and thieves too.
(an alternative is the "cloud" of course, but I don't like it)

I hope to further develop it for my needs.
Done! At last I have a direct way to set/unset archive attributes to a group of files.  Thmbsup

Let me say that DOS is a damned fascinating world.  Thmbsup

Thank you MilesAhead for your tips.
The program you showed doesn't work for me, I adapted it for the command Attrib but I didn't succeed, however your tips about "drag & drop files" brought me to compose this line:

for %%A in (%*) do (attrib +a %%A)

"Drag & drop" files and the program works now. I hope to further develop it for my needs.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Nifty FREE Utility to do almost anything to a filename in Windows on: June 18, 2015, 09:46:36 AM
With regard to utilities: I select some files in Windows Explorer, and I wonder how it's possible to pass their names to a Dos command...

there's often a separate brightness slider for video overlay windows

I think you have hit the target.
No, I haven't the item "overlay". I believe it's just what I need.

Now I will try to update the driver.

Oh yes, I read the comments now. Thank you.

might be worth reading through the newegg reviews?

No, in that page there are data only. I'd like to read instead some comments from users who have/had my same graphic card (or my same motherboard). I am trying to understand if the drawback I reported is due to that graphic card.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: A double visualization on: June 05, 2015, 04:39:07 AM
If someone owns/owned the graphic card Intel G41 or better still the motherboard Asus P5QPL-AM, I would appreciate much to know his/her experience.

Hi all,
in my PC I see everything fine but in three cases I see a rather dark window: most of video by Youtube, most of video by the player, the windows of certain programs that show a bad combination of colors (for example gray characters on a black background).
To see correctly those windows I must increase the brightness of the monitor and of course I must decrease it when I have finished.

I don't understand why such double behaviour of my system.

Is my graphic card (Intel G41) or its driver a horrid product?

Curt, where is that window? I can't find it.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Audio clipping in MP4 and MP3 on: May 30, 2015, 01:48:26 AM
Hi all.

I downloaded a video by YTD, I got a MP4 file, and then I opened it by Audacity. The sound was almost all clipped. Almost all the spectrum was cutted/flattened at its edges.

Then, using YTD again, I converted the file in MP3 lowering the volume. Then I was going to open the MP3 by Audacity again.
It was only an extreme try, a curiosity, no hope to see a different result. In fact it's impossible that a clipped sound can magically turn into a regular sound, right?

Well, when I opened the MP3 by Audacity, I realized that the sound was no longer clipped. It was fine, it was whole.

How may it be explained?

This is more an oddity than real humor.

This episode happens at Hawaii.

A Jewish merchant tries to sell twine. He deals with a guy and starts to convince him to buy the twine. After many minutes the guy gets peeved because of such insistence, so he decides to get rid of the merchant and says ironically: "OK, I will buy your twine. I will buy as much twine as the distance between your nose and the top of your pee-pee".

After some days the guy sees a long line of trucks coming to him. They are full of twine.
The guy, amazed: "What is that stuff???"
Jewish merchant: "It's what you ordered"
The guy screams: "I didn't order that!!! Damn!!! BUT WHO ARE YOU???"
"Who am I?" the merchant answers, "My name is Benjamin Sharon, I live here now,
