Windows search - is it useless or is it just me ? I have a lot of files on my USB drive that i want indexed by windows search. I have
added my drive to the list of locations to index (in "Change how windows searches"). I find that windows search will find NOTHING on my drive. I have a lot of ".doc" files and if i type "*.doc" it finds none.
UAC is Useless in Windows 7 Hi,
In my opinion UAC that comes in Windows 7 is totally useless and it really just slows your computing down. I just have to do more clicks to get things done in my opinion. And I don't know how it protects noobs. from viruses, malwares in anyway ?
For eg. I am noob, I see flashy mouse...
Homegroup is Useless, so far This is unbelievable. I finally got both of my PCs to either create or join a Homegroup. I have shared folders (and files) between each via the Homegroup. But, both machines report that there are no other PCs in the Homegroup on the network.

Is it me or are all HP printers useless? Have any of you bought a new HP printer in the last few years. Their continuously difficult to connect to the computer. They take forever to warm up and they always have problems not to mention drinks ink like its water...It's me isn't it! Is it?
Useless files? Hi everyone! I am currently using Windows 7 Build 7264 (x86).
My C:\ partition has a total of 29 GB, and my D:\ partition has a total of 157 GB. My C:\ parition (Windows, Program Files... system things) is only 11.8 GB free at the moment, so, in order to upgrade to 7600, I need 16 GB.
