comment How to become a good QA employee
Could you clarify two things? You say you have no computer background. Do you mean formal computer training (such as programming or IT) or do you mean you aren't comfortable using a computer. Also, what were you hired to test? Browser based software? Desktop applications? etc. You might want to go ahead and tell how you got hired. It may be relevant.

comment Bugs keep reappearing in our GUI software during development. How should this be addressed?
+1. I'd also ask: Are the Dev, QA, and Prod environments identical. We had problems and found that one environment was working with one java library, another environment with a different one.

comment What is System-Wide Processing?
Is the "System-Wide Processing" section part of a sample or template document? If so, where did you get the document? That seems the place to start. Or with whoever has assigned you this task.

Thanks Dmytro, this is exactly the type of example I was looking for.

@testerab Yes, it is currently only QA that has the setting turned on. And I believe your comment about a happy path run through has a lot of validity.

Correction: we turn the setting on to find more bugs. We know we won't find them all.

comment Setting browser to display notifcation for all errors - good idea?
@user246 Yes, we have. There are no reported bugs for this setting. It is not a default setting, so most end users will not change it. But we are tasked with testing the code, so we turn it on to find all bugs.

comment QTP Mercury.DeviceReplay how to get mouse controls working on multi monitor
What are you actually doing with the mouse? It is cool that you can move the mouse, but is it useful? In our QTP tests, we only use direct mouse control if there is no other option (and we actually have always found another, better option). If the application under test is displayed on a different computer/monitor configuration, will the object being acted upon always be in the same location? Also, I use multiple monitors, but find that I sometimes get odd behavior from QTP if it is on the secondary monitor, so I always have QTP (now UFT) in the primary monitor.

comment Dealing with Failures after testing?
As my manager recently told me, "No bug was ever created by QA or a tester". If there are areas that aren't being tested, perhaps you could expand into them. But I completely agree with user246's first point.

comment What Test Automation Product delivers management, execution and results?
It sounds like you already have automated tests in place. It might help to know what tools you used to author the tests.

comment SDET working as freelancer?
The ASQ (American Society for Quality) has regular meetings throughout the US. there are QA groups on Meetup. LinkedIn has several QA groups (including multiple QA automation groups) - if you find one connecte to a location, they may have actual meetings. Also programming groups (such as Agile) usually have QA professionals in attendance.

comment SDET working as freelancer?
From my experience, yes. I have only worked with two companies (and the principal personnel were actually the same). Obviously the company wants to satisfy their client, and so want their resources to accept work. But if you have specific preferences, I've found they they will work with you. What area are you in, geographically?
