This Windows 9 beta looks pretty slick.

Lol, I'm using 4.4.2. Also, good luck finding drivers for Windows 8 those that are upgrading.
Actually, I was pleasantly surprised at the driver support in Win 8/8.1. When I upgraded a 5 yr old netbook from XP Home to Win 8.1 Pro, drivers for all built-in devices except for the sd card reader were there on first bootup. After a couple of days, I received a system flag providing me with a link to the missing driver. I just needed to click on it and it was installed.
Really? Well I never thought that. So Win8 has less driver problems than Win7???

Never heard of w7 having driver problems, it's the most driver complete OS MS has come out with.

I meant compatibility with hardware made for XP.

H-p wasn't a quick release artist for drivers for an all in one printer,
Although a x-p canon worked very well so it was device manufacture dependent,
I got a upgrade disk as soon as win-7 was released,
I expected some conflicts and only had one

Well I guess I was one of the lucky ones because my all in one printer works fine. I used to use it with WinXP.

That's what drivers are for and what I meant too.
I have a very old HP printer and an Epson scanner, both made before Vista. They both work with the original (XP) drivers in w7. There is a universal printer driver in w7 as well which can run the printer.

The only thing I haven't been able to run in w7 so far is an old game called Tai Pei, which is 16 bit and came with Win 95.

Found the the above service was running all the time and I only occasionally use SuperSpyware AntiSpyware as a standalone scan. This is solely as backup check to my Antimalwarebytes Pro. May I stop and disable it, and how would I remove it entirely? Thanks Glenn
