Within any folder, if I go into "File", then "NEW", a secondary bar comes out with option like "folder" or "shortcut", plus a lot of programs I have recently used. This seems to make it very slow. How can I clear all that and make sure they don't come up so much anymore? Thx

Download TweakUI98. TweakUI will set up a control panel icon that will allow you to adjust many options inside Windows. You can open the "Paranoia" tab and turn on the option that will erase the History after you reboot. It also allows you to turn off the AutoRun feature for DATA and Music CD's. Give it a shot. TweakUI 98 should solve your problem.
