    it's possible that the second one is optional. it may depend on the presence of different user accounts. if there's just one user on your system, it may not be necc. to set a user-depending shell

    I think this sounds like a great idea... i'll have to try it...
    But if you share disks on your HTPC, how do i connect to them from another computer in the LAN when using MP as shell?
    The same way or does it require explorer as shell?

    Remember that unchecking this option will more than likely cause tearing with video playback :)
