Windows 7: Looking for solutions to several small Windows 7 Annoyances

Windows 7 64Bit Proffessional

Thank you for the Responses. I haven't had a chance to try the suggestions for Issue #1 but I will.

A few minutes ago I was working in MS Word and when I returned to my desktop all the Icons were huge. I must of CTRL + Scroll on the desktop without my awareness. When I Ctrl+Scroll back to smaller icons all my desktop icons were out of position.

Is there a setting that will disable the Ctrl+Scroll on the desktop only which will prevent making the icons larger / smaller. I do not want this to happen again in the future to my desktop. I often use Ctrl+Scroll in Word and in my Browser so I just want to disable it on the desktop.

Thank you.

When i first started up Windows 7, i immediately fell in love with it. I thought, "this is the most beautiful operating system ever. It’s almost perfect". I couldn’t believe there was already a shortcut for Windows Explorer on the task bar. It was like Microsoft finally acknowledged that people...
