comment How can I disable “add application for mailto links” bar in Firefox?
I'm not having much luck figuring out how the webpage might request it. If you can find out, you might be able to block it using something like Ad-Block Plus.

comment Windows 7 hangs shortly after startup
Could it be the ram itself that has gone bad? You might try picking up another ram chip and switching it out.

That sounds like something coming from your webmail. Have you tried looking in your webmail settings to see if you can disable it?

Yes, you can switch back to GDM at any time by replacing KDE with GNOME. Sorry, I was on here at work earlier, and forgot to pull it up when I got home.

comment Block Access to Windows Update
I can't yet comment on the main question, so I'll clarify here. Editing the hosts file will prevent you from getting the updates, but not forever. You can easily re-enable the updates by deleting or commenting out the lines setting the hosts to 0.0.0.0. This will make your computer go back to asking the DNS server for the IP addresses.

I realized that, which is why I pointed out an alternate method of only installing KDM. When I did it on my computer, it was before I knew enough to be able to set the theme from a file, so I thought I needed KDE to change it.
