This is exactly what the OP is trying to avoid. @Techbrunch's answer is the correct one.

comment How do I change the Ctrl+0 zoom level in IE10?
Unfortunately it seems Windows 8.1 has broken this by trying to allow "cleverer" scaling across multiple monitors and seems to ignore that I've explicitly told it 100% scaling, with IE still showing default (ctrl+0) zoom level as 125%... :(

comment Cursor crawls by itself. What should I do?
Did you try using the PC for a while within Safe Mode to see if the issues were occurring there? Failing that, now might be a good time to upgrade to Windows 8? :)

comment How can I select which browser a link from miscellaneous applications open in each time?
I couldn't get it to work on Windows 7 x64... It would just give up a random error, or if I ran it as Administrator, nothing happened. :(

comment Why does the recycle bin icon on the desktop appear full even though the recycle bin is empty?
What icon size do you have your desktop set to? Does it look empty or full when viewing it from a Windows Explorer window of the desktop?

comment Skype wants to make changes to the computer every time it starts
He's after a "why is this happening" response. It's obvious that Skype needs administrator permission because of the UAC, but why it wants it is a mystery that @Tom wants solved.
