Which is something that I'll have to do, I set up systems for other people, and as knowledgeable as I am about things under the hood, the people I generally set things up for about need labels on their mouse and keyboard so they know which one is which.

Windows firewall keeps turning ON, nothing can keep it down
I've disabled it in control panel, and it turned on again. I went to services and disabled it, but on the next boot it's again on and set to automatic. I find that many services in win7 have a mind of their own and it doesn't matter what you set.
