This. But then, I like to troll.

comment Why is my Hitachi Deskstar singing an odd tune, but not death rattle-type metal?
I dunno. It doesn't sound like it is spinning up (that is a much different tune), and I know the drive is spinning before and after the tune. But thanks for the link. Uh, did I just say that? As a SO user, I now feel dirty. I'll turn off power saving for the drive and see if that helps.

comment Why would a computer stop POSTing only temporarily after a crash?
I've had that happen to me a couple times on my old machine. I figured it was an issue with the card/driver that took the system down. As for not posting... Dunno. Overheating in older systems, like @chrisf suggested, could prevent a post.

comment Why is “Libraries” always selected when I view my desktop?
Look, I don't care if you have Angelina's blood in a vial around your neck, but this is at least something. I still want a 100% fix for this BS. And, I'm sure, so do you. I will see if this is acceptable in practice. I don't feel so, unfortunately.

comment Why is “Libraries” always selected when I view my desktop?
Nope. Doesn't work. Something else is happening here. The link created when I drag has a different icon than yours, and the location bar just shows Desktop, where yours shows (I guess) your profile folder name THEN Desktop. Here's +1 for your efforts, tho.

comment Why is “Libraries” always selected when I view my desktop?
Nope. A picture isn't worth jack in this case, as it still doesn't work. Tried about five different ways to do this, and no matter what my favorites desktop icon is different from your second desktop icon and it still fails. Not sure why. Also tried changing the icon to point to explorer.exe c:\users\me\desktop, tried just explorer.exe but had the startup folder set to my desktop (even worse--it starts up in Libraries! Its mocking me!), etc etc. So if you're doing something special here you're going to have to spell it out, as I can't guess what it is.

Nice suggestion (hadn't tried this), however it hasn't worked.
