Interference in threads so that standard procedures which have helped in thousands of similar cases are confused or derailed entirely by competing suggestions. There's a rash of it right now, stretching one day solutions out to two weeks in one case.

The prob is not always with noobs. Other badged members' competing suggestions can give OP's pause even when they've not been working these same fixes for years or at all.

I do read many if not most of your post trying to learn and I hope I'm not one of the bothersome ones.

Not at all. I shouldn't have said anything but sometimes it gets to where I need to vent and this seems to be the place. None of it is reportable since it's most always well-intended. I also make my share of mistakes which are caught faster this way.

Vent all you want Greg, but if it gets too much then hit the report button and we will sort it out

I see that happen at times. I mean I've been guilty myself but usually only when I see that the initial suggestions are likely going WAY off base or are far to generic when a specific test may get to the heart of the matter right away.

Had one lately where a person was confused about the Documents and Settings folder (Everyone is at first) and almost immediately there was a suggestion to do a restore /repair then a reinstall. :/

You gotta get down to the actual meat of the problem, do a little triage, before suggesting such grand recovery options. In this case I was pretty sure the problem was a PEBKAK, perfectly solvable with a little education/explaination, and restoring/repairing and reinstalling were just enormous wastes of time and dangerous for the user (likely to lose a lot of data they wouldn't want to if not careful).

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
