Good on you man... lots of karma points. 1. Defragging? I understood that was a legacy requirement... and especially tricky on an SSD, which I have as my primary drive. 2. I found a simple registry Dword add to set the login screen background to a solid color. 3. I find it odd Id have to run CCleaner to solve an issue I never saw once in Win7. When I go to attach a file to a post, for example, I have to wait for the directory to populate. Must be another solution?
