I re-installed my XP Home Edition and discovered that it functions a bit differently than before. The annoying thing I would like to get rid of is the additional step in the shut down process. For example, previously I was able to click on Start-Shut Down, and there would be a screen with three options (Restart-Shut Down-something else). Now I click on Start-Shut Down, and a window appears with a drop-down menu which I don't dig. Also, previously I could press CTRL-ALT-DEL and get Task Manager window to popup immediately; now, it gives me a separate window with many other options which is an unnecessary extra step. I must have changed something in my options somewhere.... Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
