    Mouse / Keyboard sharing software?

    I don't see why you wouldn't use Synergy but here are some options I can think of: 1. http://www.keyboard-and-mouse-sharing.com/ 2. https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=35460 3. http://edgerunner.com/multiplicity 4. http://inputdirector.com/ 5. http://www.litemanager.com/ DISCLAIMER: I have never used any of these softwares and I'm just selecting ones that had the best reviews and I thought would work in your favour, I do hope one of them do.

    Is veryfast.io safe?

    I would stay clear from that website, I've just had a good look and ran the software on a test bench. And I saw no difference expect from an increase in disk usage from trying to run this program. It also probably had some viruses on it too etc, I'll edit this post if I come across any virus that I believe came from it.

    New pc high temp cpu

    Which CPU is she using? I would still recommend putting your own Thermal Compound onto the CPU. Are the parts of the stock cooler installed and the right way around (E.G. does she have the heatsink installed etc etc)

    Semi-Gaming Laptop? Suggestions?

    I don't know your budget so I'll try give you a range of laptops: This one is quite pricey but also very powerful and should run most AAA games and WoW at high settings and high FPS: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-InfinityEdge-Ultrabook-i7-6700HQ-Windows/dp/B018FSX9GA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499253136&sr=1-1 The cheaper brother of the last one but still very good: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-13-3-Inch-Ultrabook-Integrated-Professional/dp/B00T9RSZ9I/ref=sr_1_7?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499253136&sr=1-7 This one is about the same price but from what I've heard a little better battery: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GL552VW-DM195T-i5-6300HQ-GTX960M-Backpack/dp/B01N21B4FP/ref=lp_12123675031_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499257461&sr=1-1 This one is a much cheaper one but comes with the toll of having older specs, might not run AAA at good fps (maybe 30 at low settings maybe) but WoW should run fine: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Inspiron-Laptop-Pentium-Windows/dp/B01N9OJEE3/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499257538&sr=1-1&th=1 A pretty standard laptop: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-VivoBook-X540SA-XX345T-Notebook-Processor/dp/B01KLGDHSE/ref=sr_1_36?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499257633&sr=1-36 I hope this helps, I don't know WoW that well and played it once a very long time ago, so I'm not very certain on what you need to run it but from what the internet says but I always find that to be wrong a little. EDIT: Now that you've said your budget I would recommend something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-G752VS-GC054T-i7-6820HK-Storage-Backpack/dp/B01JIS78PY/ref=lp_12121689031_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499257846&sr=1-1 It's a very very powerful laptop.

    PCIe vs USB wifi adapter

    PCI card over USB. Because from my own experience I only got 20-30Mbps with my USB 3.0 Adapter connected to a USB 3.0 port in a good spot, as soon as I replaced over to a PCI it jumped all the way up to 40-50Mbps and it's in a worse spot than my USB was. And the PCI I used was actually a £10 of Amazon!
  7. I would recommend these laptops maybe, they should run the games you stated and the softwares quite well. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-13-3-Inch-Ultrabook-Integrated-Professional/dp/B00T9RSZ9I/ref=sr_1_7?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499253136&sr=1-7 Those this next one is a little over the budget you said but it's got more power than the first one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-InfinityEdge-Ultrabook-i7-6700HQ-Windows/dp/B018FSX9GA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1499253136&sr=1-1 --- I would also say what TDCDitgital said and just look around youtube or amazon for the best for your buck.

    Best free antivirus?

    I'd always use AVG, it's lite weight and (unless you set it not to) it'll run in the background all the time and keep monitoring. I've had times where I downloaded something that had a virus inside and AVG deleted it before I even finished the download. EDIT: Also the free version which I use is more than enough.
