I'm using XP Pro (SP2). I've noticed that all of a sudden, and only recently too, the names of many of my files appear in blue text when I view them in Windows Explorer. Not all files are affected, and it seems that ANY file type can be affected. All the files open as normal and behave as normal so this blue text doesn't seem to have affected the file in any other ways, so it's more of a mystery than a problem (and it's beginning to annoy me now because I can't figure out what caused it). Any ideas about what may have caused this and how I can fix it?

How do I restore the taskbar and desk top icons on XP that got delete/hid somewhere? Tried regedit/deleting the file. Even tried downloading some patches found on Ask Jeeves.

I note that after I conduct a search for a particular file or folder using the search companion - (XP Home SP2) all the files or folders with that name will appear in the search window.  That's fine, but when I either use "Open Containing Folder" or just double click on that particular file (or folder) to open it,  the search companion automatically creates a  shortcut for that file or folder that appears at the bottom of the list.  Is there some way to disable this behavior from happening so that a shortcut is not created?

I recently increased my memory of 512MB to 1G. I use a Dell 8400 Hyper thread 3200 Intel chip. I have the hyper thread turned on in the bios. Windows XP OS.
I didn't seem to get any performance increase, and wonder if I should change the setting in Performance Options from the Virtual Memory Paging file "custom size" (which is set to 1533 MB with max of 1536; which is what is says is recommended) to "system managed size", or something else. The Memory Usage is set for "system cache'. My Hard Drive is 40MB. Is there any other tweaking I could do?".

IF01650
  How can I show two (or more?) windows side by side. I've been switching back and forth between two websites in IE 6 and I'd like to be able to show them both simultaneously. I'd also like to be able to show two drawings (from the same drawing program) side by side. I'm using Windows XP Home edition with all the latest updates from Microsoft. I've tried to look up how to do this in a few books, unsuccessfully, perhaps because I'm not using the correct terminology.
