Couple of big Windows XP Pro annoyances...need help

1. When I insert a blank CDR disc, it always keeps asking me if I want to take no action or open up a folder. I keep checking the box to always take no action but that prompt keeps coming back up every time.

2. IE Explorer defaults to 'smaller' text size instead of medium which is the only size I can stand. I'm repeatedly having to resize the text.

Would something in X Teq X Systems fix this stuff and if so where?
I've set XP up before on other people's computers and never had trouble like this...like my system keeps forgetting settings.

for your first problem go into my computer and to the properties on the cd drive that you put the cd's in and set the Blank cd in the pull down and select the take no action.

Thanks. However, same thing happens when I do that. This computer is just not remembering those little settings it prompts you for.

Couple other things, similar: it keeps asking me if I want to save my password on web pages, doesn't remember them. And my printer keeps getting kicked offline - sometimes I have to go into the printers folder, right-click and make it available online, and reboot it (the printer), then it works.

I followed some of the tips at Black Viper for clearing up some services I didn't need. I wonder if one of them might be needed more than I thought...would would control things like this?

Only other thing is I've run RegCleaner a couple of times, but I never had any problem with that program doing something like this in the past.
