comment Windows 7 alt-tab window disappears to back when aero peek is enabled
It's absolutely not a feature. See my edit with the screenshot of how it's supposed to work. The entire point of the feature is for the alt-tab window to be on top so you can see what you're switching between; having it obscured like that would defeat the point of having it.

Weird. Well I'm glad you managed to get it working, it's too bad they don't support it the right way though.

comment Windows 7 alt-tab window disappears to back when aero peek is enabled
As I stated in the 2nd paragraph, yes I've seen this issue every once in a while on one of my other computers, but it would always go away after a reboot. On this computer the problem is always here. On a third machine I've never seen this problem. This is Win7 x64, the other two are 32-bit, but I don't think that should make a difference.

Glad that worked. If you figure out what was actually causing the problem in the first place, do let us know!

comment How can I set up a policy on Windows XP to logout all users at midnight?
Also, just a note... I don't know how old your kids are, but keep in mind that there may be times when they'll need the computer for extended hours for homework. When I was in high school I would often have lab reports, etc. which would have be researching/processing data/typing reports until well after midnight. Just something to keep in mind - the technical solution could end up being a problem for them at times, so just make sure to discuss it with them if that might be a problem.

comment All folders in all drives are set to read only on Windows XP and can't be changed
Could you give us a link to the Microsoft article you followed the instructions in? It would also be useful to know if anything has been changed from between when things were working and when they weren't -- did you install any programs, change any settings, etc?

comment ALWAYS display the last / default user Windows 7 welcome screen
By the way, it says "Domain: MOSS", but that's just the name of my local computer. This is actually the default behavior on a domain (to prompt for username and password), but it is possible to enable it on a computer not joined to a domain. Should work in any version of Windows 7 or Vista, but I have only tested on Windows 7 Pro.
