    If there was an Xp based type Windows without the programs: Outlook, IE, and the such. no folders created for me: My Documents, My Music and the like. A Windows that came only with updated drivers (maybe). What would it be called? Does it exist?

    Is Lindows any good? I heard it is as stable as Xp. Is it true that it could run Xp programs in it?

    I guess I am just a little weary of no matter how I try to disable to Windows programs, and use third party programs and utilities, Windows somehow keeps opening up these apps when it feels like. It feels like I have two or three of the same programs for no reason, Especially if the third party stuff works hundred times better than the Windows issued stuff, Utilities and Apps. Guess I am just venting.

    On a Side Note:: This is my 47th post, All of you guys are just awesome with the positive feedback and answers I get from all of you. Thanks to all of you who have helped me either directly or through the search engine, finding my answers there. And if one day I will be able to answer someone's question, it will be because of the knowledge I gained from all of you. Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, I remember 'Windows 98 Lite' with fondness, not always successful, but the thought was there!!
