I'll stick with the desktop icons, they work just fine and don't take up any additional memory.
Process Tamer sounds interting, I will be testing that shortly. Do you really have to login and download a Free License Key? I would really rather not.
My issue with USB Disk Ejector is it doesn't stay in the Sys Tray, it's either a Window or closed. I would really prefer an easy to click trey icon that is easier to read and deal with than the basic Windows one. I'll probably remove this as it's not really adding anything.
A few people have recommended 7zip, which looks good if I were making Zips... but I'm not. I just need something to open them when they come my way. I suppose if it's significantly smaller or has fewer nag screens, that might be OK. Just not sure it's worth the effort at this point, thoughts?
I must be one of the lucky ones with a really quiet fan, it doesn't bother me at all so I intend to leave it alone.
Common sense vs. Every Hacker/Spammer on the internet?? No thanks. I work on PCs for a living and I see those Common Sense machines every day... in the SHOP getting fixed!
Thanks for all the suggestions guys! You have given us all something to think about.
