Lol, makes a nice change Doc from what some write about W7. I like it too!

None of those cause the computer to slow down. Running applications cause the computer to slow down. Unused entries in the Registry do not cause any delay. Junk files on the HDD do not cause the computer to slow down unless it is so full that free space is scarce.

Why this myth is still alive baffles me.
It baffles me as well. People will believe anything....

That is the point lol, since many folders and orphaned files and registry keys are left, they help make the space scarce and makes the HD fragmented and causing it to slow down.

But in the sense, I did see some corrupt registry keys made my computer's shutdown so slow and made my desktop gadget crash when I was on Vista so better not bust that myth yet.

Getting really sick of locks on everything. Never had this problem with Vista. (never thought i'd say that)

I am logged in as admin (not super-admin). When I install programs, if I paste a shortcut to my desktop, it has a lock on it. No big deal, still able to move, delete or whatever. But after spending alot of time getting my OS running again and desktop looking tight, all of a sudden I have these locks.

I can get rid of the locks by going into security tab and writing a permission for "everyone", and the lock goes away. Just getting to be a nuisance.
I would like to know what I did to make this happen.

I may have to go into Super-admin and set all permissions from there, maybe that'll end this.

The lock indicates only you have permission to access this item. Now since it is appearing on individual files and folders this tells me you altered permissions somewhere but did not carry those permissions to the children. The lock only appears at the highest level. In the default out of the box experience the lock only appears on "C:\Users\[username]" folder none of the children.

Seriously people, altering permissions without knowing what you are doing is a really bad idea.
