That darn desktop cleanup wizard

This screen cap made me chuckle :o)

Windows Doesn't Know When to Shutup

I just had to share.

Has anyone ever found that wizard to be helpful in any way? I wonder how you turn that bugger off. I never thought it was a big deal but I guess it would be to some :-)

Of course, you can edit the registry (REALLY scary). Or, you can use Tuneup Utilities. It offers hundreds of such tweaks in an attractive GUI.

indeed, here's what to put in a .reg file to disable it in XP (per-user setting, naturally):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\CleanupWiz]
"NoRun"=dword:00000001
