Ok but make a system image any way. It is just a copy of your hard drive. In the event that you every screw up, you can go back with the system image. Just go to search and type system image. By default your machine is probably making them once a week anyway. Before you do anything else, learn about it. It can get you out of almost any problem there is, except kicking your computer when angry.

Most problems with IE are caused by misbehaving or conflicting add-ons. If you go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced and click "Reset", this will reset IE back to it's default settings and unload added toolbars and other add-ons that may have been dumped on your system. It will put any configuration changes back to the out-of-the box settings. It will not break IE.

Why double login needed coming out of sleep mode?
Weird quirk that for a long time I thought was my imagination, but it's not: When my PC goes into sleep mode (typically while not logged in), I am asked for my password, I enter it, I briefly get the bright blue screen saying Welcome - and then boom, back to the login screen and I have to enter...

Double Monitors = Double Desktop Headache!
I just got a new monitor, and I've always wondered what it would be like to have 2 monitors at once, seeing as my 16" has nothing wrong with it (aside from a scuff mark in the LCD when I dropped it on a screwdriver) Anyway, I got it setup, and it's amazing! I'd say it's increased my productivity...
