    You have to reboot after installing software? I haven't had to do that since Win95...maybe 98. Get a new OS, man. WinNT, 2k, or XP if you want to stick with MS.

    Definitely as late as Win98!

    Oh, stop, you Unix people...

    That drives me up the wall. Does anybody know of a way to stop it?
    In XP theres a few little tricks. If you want to DEL it so its not on your desktop::

    right click on the desktop and goto properties. Click the backdround tab and go to customize. You will see a section called "Desktop Icons", just uncheck the ones u wish to hide.

    Another way i know of is two programs::

    Winxp Powertoys
    Xgen GUI
