Yes, now after I have started it the second time to fix the broken
installation, I see this checkbox for the very first time.  Not really
a good place for a little check box, a hint in the main display would
be nice.  And maybe make it optional, that is not checked by default.

Hmm, explorer crashes and I lost my mozilla profile and some other ugly
errors.  Obviously I was no longer logged in as Admin after restarting
explorer from the console.
