You really should have tried at least reading the summary. Cold calling competitors is exactly what Google had an agreement with these companies NOT to do. The justice department is forcing them to dissolve that agreement out of the notion that it is hurting the employees to not receive these cold calls. Next time try listening a little before opening your mouth.

My apologies. I had never tried to pile my icons like that anywhere other than the desktop. It appears you are correct that it is a problem in other folders. As far as the align to grid vs auto arrange question you'll find that auto arrange overrides align to grid but if you un-check that and keep align to grid checked (which is enabled by default in w7) then you can move the icons to other parts of the screen but they can't overlap which is what I expect you meant by piling them. So both need to be unchecked to do what you want.

If you don't like auto arrange you simply have to right click and hover over View to see the option. I know that takes about 1 second longer that it did in xp and it must be hard but I would think you would have at least looked at little for it if it bothered you so much

Well I can tell you it certainly doesn't end well on the windows side either if you choose to click "Set as Desktop Background" instead of the "Open With" option that lives right below. It ate right through all my glorious 8 gigs of memory and pegged my i7 for a good minute before I could kill explorer. I would not recommend it in the future...

Ok so I appologize about the display driver part, I just guessed that cause I know a lot of people do it. And I am aware of the reviews but it depends on the game. I play America's Army, Halo, CS, and FEAR the most. They all show very similar or slightly higher fps. I know some games are still slower though. Also the last driver version I installed (101.41 from Nvidia) was the first to show that kind of performance which is another reason I brought that up. It does go to show though that when newer drivers are released it could get even better. The last part I am sticking to though since I just re-installed on a new hard disk about 3 days ago and I just checked the size of the windows folder and found it to be 7.6GB. If you add in the User folders before adding my junk to them that puts you almost right at 8GB.
