How do I get rid of this?
The infamous Cancel or Allow?
Go into Control Panel, User Accounts, Turn User Account Control on or off. Uncheck the box and click OK.

Where did it go?
telnet
You now have to explicitly "enable" telnet. Go into Control Panel, Programs and Features. Click Turn Windows features on or off and check off Telnet Client.
The menu bar in Explorer
The menu bar in Explorer is now hidden by default. Just press Alt to bring it up.

If you want it to stay there permanently, press Alt to bring up the menu bar and go to Tools, Folder Options... and select Use Windows classic folders
How do I change this?
ClearType is unreadable
Try the ClearType tuner. If you turn ClearType down to the lowest or next to lowest intensity you may find it to be usable. http://www.microsoft.com/typography/ClearTypePowerToy.mspx
cmd.exe defaults to overwrite mode
Click on the window icon and go to Properties. Check off Insert Mode and click OK. This setting will persist to new windows.
