I'm not calling any particular feature a security risk; I responded to the notion that built-in features are superior to 3rd party software just by virtue of being built-in, which IMHO is false....
Built-in features inferior to 3rd party alternatives don't add value to the OS; they are at best unnecessary bloat or even security risks, not to mention the damage they do to the popularity of 3rd...
The xmouse behavior can be configured not to raise windows:

I gambled at GOG, maybe you won: Halfway https://www.gog.com/game/halfway
Replace every x with C: https://www.gog.com/redeem/2x973-7x3x8-77E92-5Fx78
So apparently Windows 7 and 8 will automatically and silently download the files needed to install Windows 10 if automatic updates are enabled:...
I didn't mean to say there's nothing to fix in Windows 7, but Windows 10 doesn't fix enough and breaks too many other things.
Reasons I'm not upgrading:
Mandatory updates which include device drivers and who knows what else down the line. The hardware is mine and I reserve the right to decide what is installed and when....

?YY03-TR?V7-X07D? Figure out the missing letters and NAB yourself a free copy of DOOM 3 BFG (Steam)
...or just PM me if you can't be bothered with stupid riddles. The key is quite old and might...

Free for the "supported lifetime" of the hardware it's installed on, so you'll need to buy a new license when you get a new computer. Which is BS if true, but they've tried it before (Office).

Guild Wars 2 is an MMO without monthly subscriptions, it is therefore perfectly fine for them to do that sort of thing.
Diablo 3 is not an MMO. It is an online game but technically it doesn't need...
Not yet. The game performs so poorly on my system (i5 3450, Radeon 6870) anyway that I haven't felt like putting much effort into troubleshooting.
I bought The Sims 4 and the latest Dragon Age. The latter turned out to be unplayable as it causes my computer to freeze randomly. Might feel like playing TS4 after a couple more sips of tequila. Oh...
Here's a thread with lots of good info: http://forum.bioware.com/topic/529838-a-collection-of-tweaks-and-fixes-for-the-pc-version/
The game causes my computer to hang randomly, no errors or...

PM if you want one of these:
Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box (Steam)
Battlefield 3 (Origin)
Edit: Both gone.
Can the floating combat text be turned off?
Can the visual effects be turned down?
How does it run on older hardware?
Do the visuals degrade at least somewhat gracefully when quality is turned...
The invisible image redirects to g2a with a reflink. Somewhat clever, if it does in fact accomplish something. I'm not curious enough to check.

Gave away Mass Effect 2 (Origin). PM here or http://steamcommunity.com/id/araneldon/
I would recommend XCOM as well, but get it from amazon.com instead if you can. The collection (see URL below) includes all DLC as well as the old games. Or get the XCOM EU+EW bundle (second URL...
