As the subject say, what uses the desktop cleanup "service"? I got an info that wanted to "clean" my desktop as some icons haven't been used. Never had that "service" even when I installed the sp3. My system is now reinstalled real clean on a new harddrive using a slipstreamed cd that has winxp sp3. Strange that things behave differently as opposed to just installing the sp3. I just want to kill the watchdog that wants to destroy my desktop the way I like it. Also anyway to also kill the "error msg" that say my firewall isn't active? I do use a router with the firewall on. Another item that didn't exist before!
