When you click on these short cuts do they do anything?

If not then may be a right click and delete will get rid of them...

Some programs are highly invasive.

You may need to use a system restore or (shudder) a re-install.

Sorry.

They share a lot.

Often advice on one may be used with the other.

What type (HP, Dell, etc) do you have?

I found my old email address in [Computer] i did a Rt. Clk. and up came the option to delete.So i started to delete the old Address. Holy Sh#$ up came over 3000 folders connected to this file. I clicked on cancel ,but it already removed about 15 files.I had to do a system restore to get back to where i was. When one does not know what he is doing one should leave well enough alone. One day when i can get my grandson who is in collage to sit down and remove VISTA and install Windows 7. It seems at least once a week something goes wrong.
Lost RUN in start menu,Lost hibernate In start menu.Computer goes to sleep and after about 5 or 6 Hrs it shuts down No option the never shut down.Icons after shutdown move all over the desktop. I switched from FF to Chrome but that only made the PC faster it did not fix any of my problems. In my opinion Vista 64bit Sucks.

Windows 7 is the most stable MS, consumer OS that I have used.

If you're going to use a MS product on PC's try to use that.

Can't help there. Sorry.

Let your grandson install W7.

I'm not sure why most folks go for the 64-bit OS unless they need the additional RAM.

I have a legal student edition W7 upgrade you can have at cost but your grandson can probably take care of your needs.
