And as I did my usual "CHANGE F***ING EVERYTHING" I noticed that everything is retarded. Like, the control panel is a lot more confusing and things have completely unintuitive and retardedly long names like "Performance Information and Tools" when "Performance" would be a lot better... especially as I feel kind of stupid (like I'm light headed or so). It also seems it's more intent on looking good than working good. /rant Anywho, I've got a few questions (that have probably been answered before, but I'm lazy and my brain seems on the fritz, and I don't feel like reading and searching and researching): I'm a little confused on disabling the theme (ZOMGBBQ it makes me puke on the guy that designed it), does that go back to having to keep a copy of video RAM in the physical RAM? How do you change Explorers folder pane to just show my physical drives and not all this crap I never use? I changed the taskbar to small icons, but they're still retardedly wide for some reason.... I tried CSMenu, but it was still chocked full of crap I never use, and retardedly gigantic (even though I disabled them in the taskbar properties)... So I uninstalled it and now the menu is still huge and unintuitive, but practically empty. How do I change all this crap in the notifications? Is there a guide to what all the new/renamed services are/do? It seems to suffer from the new control panel idea (examples: Desktop Window Manager Session Manager, Problem Reports and Solutions Control Panel Support, KtmRm for Distributed Transaction Coordinator. WTF is this shit? What happened to short and sweet?)? How do I murder the Indexing service once and for all? How do I kill the Task Scheduler service? How do I destroy the Event Log service? Why is Windows so intent on not letting me stop things that I really would prefer to be stopped? EDIT: It just did that "you've seen all the threads and now you won't know what threads you've actually read" thing, so I know it isn't Firefox.
