EXPERT - You can also keep all applications from running automatically on your system by removing ALL privilages from the RUN registry (below). This in effect nukes all add-on applications from running automatically. It doesnt remove them from your system, it just removes their ability to run without your knowledge. This is the registry key below. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run You can download the Yahoo! toolbar that contains a POP - UP BLOCKER. This can be turned on/off according to your needs.

How do you stop 7zip from using an intermediate temp directory when decompressing files?

7-Zip doesn't know folder path of drop target. Only Windows Explorer knows exact drop target. And Windows Explorer needs files (drag source) as decompressed files on disk. So 7-Zip extracts files from archive to temp folder and then 7-Zip notifies Windows Explorer about paths of these temp files. Then Windows Explorer copies these files to drop target folder. To avoid temp file usage, you can use Extract command of 7-Zip or drag-and-drop from 7-Zip to 7-Zip.
