Windows 7: Questions about Start Bar Behaviour

Questions about Start Bar Behaviour

Hi There!

1) I would like windows to default to opening a new instance of a program like the classic quicklaunch does, but to use the new behaviour if I hover over the icon, kind of like a hybrid. I hate having to Shift click for a new Firefox Window which I would literally be doing 100 times a day or more
2) How much true difference does upgrading vs clean installing make to system performance. I have about 30 customizations and programs I need and it's a PITA with the speed of the leaks, to fresh install each time not to mention any software which activates.
3) I am looking for a tool that can monitor quantity of traffic on a port or group of ports.. IE I want to reasonably accurately track how much traffic is being moved on ports 1677-1680 in and out.
4) There was a background which was blue and looked like liquid that had a splash or something in the middle of it, but I can't find it. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

it's the middle one down further in the page. (great tool by the way the new login defaults are ghastly! I preferred the earlier builds installer graphics too.

5) Do we know what the next likely build of x64 leak will be?

A clean installation is always recommended as there have been incedents of previous registry entrys causing issues with the new OS/Build. System performance will be increased as the running resource list will be minimal.

The next build should be eith 7072 or 7075, at least we're hoping so.
