Windows 7: What annoys you?

I'm just trying to picture Jaidyn with his trousers round his ankles as he tries to out-run (or should that be out-hop) an amorous kangaroo!

Where's someone with a video camera when you need them?

You made a post? On this thread?
Are you sure?
I guess we missed it.

  1. post a solution to a problem which works fine, but is unnecessarily complicated and/or relies on 3rd-party tools when all you need is already built into Windows... Example: using Linux bootdiscs and HDDErase and and and etc. etc. to wipe your harddisk clean when just booting the WinRE environment and using diskpart's clean all will do perfectly fine.
  2. post a widely known solution to a (usually) simple issue, ignoring a better solution and not helping to propagate that better solution to eventually displace the currently accepted one... Example: Someone needs to shut down and restart explorer.exe, and they're told to kill the process using Task Manager and then start a new explorer.exe process. A much more elegant solution is to open the Start menu, rightclick inside the blank area while holding CTRL+SHIFT down and then simply select the newly appearing option "Exit Explorer" from the context menu. This closes Explorer properly instead of just aborting it. Either way works fine but this way is just so much nicer... Disclaimer: I'm definitely OCD and not exaggerating either
I totally agree with you, Corazon.

I would add this to your list: a newbie posting his first or second post, offering a one-liner like "Download the SuperUltimate Universal Windows Tweaker" in a thread where several senior members already have patiently talking a user through a process.

You should have followed it and watched it take a dump.


And then give it the old treatment

Linux questions flooding SevenForums because their own forums apparently can't handle them.

This is not Linux forums. Win7 doesn't even like Linux much. Sorry.

Perhaps we should flood their forums with Windows 7 questions in retaliation.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
