I just formatted my comp, and whatnot, and made Firefox my default browser.

How doI make Firefox fast?

(And also, how do I disable WINDOWS MESSENGER? Those popup things are getting to me)

Thanks,
AG

Cuz I felt like it :p

Also, thanks alot guys! This helped quite a bit.

I was going to ask another question, but I totally forgot it. I will ask it here if I think of it.


EDIT: Ah yes, I thought of the question. How do I get rid of the lil' shortcut icon thingy?

It'd be real cool if someone knew a good tweaking help site, since I have a lot of little things that need to be tweaked.)

Oh, I know how to do that, brb, i'll edit this post.

[EDIT] get this (http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/c/a/fca6767b-9ed9-45a6-b352-839afb2a2679/TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe) It's from microsoft homepage so it's safe, in case you were wondering. Once you install it open it and press the little plus sign next to "Explorer" then click "Shortcut" from the submenu. Then just select no arrow.

You can do other cool things with it too, like hide the recycle bin on the desktop.

That's a good site to get some tweaks. You can find others in google.
