It might be a good idea to create a system restore point, before you get your tweakers out

Seriously, this is not a cure, but at least it makes tweaking a bit harder: use a standard user account. It does not prevent you tweaking but every time you modify something, you have to give admin credentials and that reminds you about the reason you are using a standard account.

I'm using this method. It gives me an extra step to think if what I'm doing is really necessary, an additional 'Are you sure?' question.
