"Aero Peak is the ability to look behind any windows on screen with out moving them, this is good for seeing any kind of system monitoring tool gadget you may have running on the desktop. Granted it dose take a lot of resource, but its not useless." Two things. 1. All it shows you is the outline of any boxes you have open, it doesn't show you what's actually in the boxes. I call that useless. 2. They already had something that worked just as well, without being a resource hog, it was called "Show Desktop". "Screw the quick launch, its for lazy people." Holy Cow! You said that out loud? I guess going through the completely awful new start menu for everything is better than the quick launch. I suppose that's why they tried so hard to hide it. "Media Player 12 is really good, some of my friends use it, and it takes even pirated music and ads the digital information to it and makes it run perfect" So it's good because it will play mp3s? And trust me, there's much better software for editing metadata than MP12 "the reason you are having to do it twice in 7 is because you are not an administrator." Yes I was. "When you run the program, it attempts to install an plugin to your web browser, with out your knowledge or you accepting it." I use Firefox, and that asks you before installing a browser plug-in or add-on. "If you disable UAC, that would get through. It doesn't stop there, it will watch browser extensions as well, and even extremely snoopy cookies." I use ZoneAlarm firewall and have it set on maximum. It asks me before anything new tries to run or install. Also Firefox doesn't save any of my browsing history and deletes all the cookies every time I close it. Plus I use Ccleaner after I close Firefox. Like I said. Windows 7 is not a user friendly OS, it's user safe. By stopping you from doing anything, there's less chance of breaking it.
