I edited the question to be a little bit more generic, and I opened it for you. In this case I think it's a bit of a border-line situation. It's pretty specific to your corporate firewall settings (and corporate policies, too), but the general advice of "how to deal with web installers when behind a proxy" could certainly be useful for other people. On an ...

There is some overlap depending on whether the question involves local programs or not. If the question is about a local application (e.g. Photoshop CC), then it would be on-topic. If it were about the interaction between a local application and the online service (e.g. uploading from Photoshop CC), it would be on-topic. If the question were about the use ...

Ask yourself about the question. Can somebody tell me if my computer is fast enough to run Windows 7?

Are questions related to specific natural languages too localized? No. As long as you're trying to solve an actual problem and the question you ask might be helpful for others in the future, it is never too localized. If we were to close questions as too localized just because they are very narrow, we would probably have to close all of the low-view "...

Agree, trying to find information about these files can be pretty tricky at times. Reopened.

Same issue as with the computer virus questions: We don't want one (or more) questions per virus. In this case, it's possibly non-virus processes, but the problem's the same: It requires hundreds of thousands of very narrow topics to build a useful body of knowledge. Rephrase as How can I find out what a process running on my machine does and where it's ...

As an irregular SuperUser I thought I'd chime in to say that while it might be on topic here that you're more likely to find a audience who can answer the question in a more specialised stack. I suggest having a meta discussion with GraphicDesign since they field a lot of usage questions on the Adobe graphics products and Audio-Video Production for Premiere ...

The description of Too Localized: This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. If a question asking for a dictionary in a particular language could be ...
